Remove the wand from your mascara and take your bottle salt solution. Squeeze in 1 to 2 drops (only) into the mascara tube. Replace the wand and give it a little wiggle to mix the solution in. Try the consistency on the back of your hand to see if it’s okay.

Add a little translucent powder to get fluffier lashes. After you apply mascara for the first time, dust your lashes with a gentle coat of loose powder — this will add volume to your eyelashes by making them look thicker. Add a second coat of mascara to cover the dustiness, and you’ll see the difference for yourself.

Then fill in the bottom three sections of the “X” with lipstick and continue applying it as you normally would to complete your look.
