My biggest pet peeve about myself is not having long luscious lashes. My lashes are so short and ordinary that I usually end up putting on Mascara 3 separate times before leaving the house. Not only that but I always always always buy Mascara that adds length and volume usually any one that says 3x! But no more! I am determined to have lashes that I wake up in the morning and don’t have to do a thing to! So I’ve done my research and have stuck with a diy serum to help my lashes. Now I am making that available to everyone else. I will tell everyone that this is no “miracle” overnight wonders cures. It takes time to work it’s magic and dedication from you to keep up with it.
The way I did it did not include cleaning out a pesky Mascara tube or a nail polish bottle. I wanted a clean bottle with no left over residues of Mascara, nail polish or the cleaning agents that would be left behind and irritate my eyes. So I created my own diy Mascara bottle. I’ve included plenty of photographs to help everyone see the steps and what to get.
Step 1: Gather your supplies. Here’s what you need.
-A glue gun and glue sticks. UPDATE: I actually think it works better if you use a strong super glue that can withstand multiple conditions and be used on many surfaces. If you don’t have a glue gun try this Mini Hot Melt Glue Gun or if you prefer the super glue get a multipurpose one such as this Gorilla Original Gorilla Glue
-A reusable travel size bottle with cap. (I recommend the kind that you can get from a place such as Walmart that are slightly taller than the one I used because the one that I purchased at Walgreens is slightly smaller and my Mascara brush bends a little when it is closed but it still works just fine.) Or instead of hunting at the store grab this set online and don’t worry about shopping around. AutumnFall 6pcs Set,Travel Bottles
-Mascara wands. You can usually purchase these at a beauty supply store. They typically come in multiples packs for people that usually offer samples to customers or you can order them here. 100 Pack Disposable Eyelash Mascara Wands
-Aloe Vera (gel is better,however, regular is what I used and it is just as good) get yours here. Amara Organics Aloe Vera Gel
-Vitamin E (I recommend you get vitamin E oil but I looked into it and the oil found in the vitamin capsules are just as good. You’ll also want a safety pin if you are using capsules as I have to poke a tiny hole in the capsules to get the oil out.) I recommend this vitamin E oil Nature’s Bounty Vitamin E-Oil 30,000 IU (Topical or Oral), 2.5 ounces.
-Cold pressed castor oil. This one is great! And fairly inexpensive as well. Castor Oil Cold Pressed Organic 100%
Step 2: plug in your glue gun to allow the glue to get hot. UPDATE: Skip this step if you are using super glue.
Step 3: while your glue is heating mix the ingredients for your eyelash serum inside the travel size bottle. I do not use standard measurements for this(tsps, cups, etc. ) I only wanted to make enough serum just to cover my Mascara wand so I dole out my ingredients in parts so that I can make however much I want. Use the following formula
1/2 part castor oil
1/4 part Aloe Vera
1/4 part vitamin E
Step 4: mix well
Step 5: glue the end without the Mascara bristles (the stick end) to the center of the inside of your travel container cap. Allow to dry.
Step 6: You’re done! Enjoy your diy eyelash Growth serum! Apply before bed after washing makeup from your eyes.
Application Tips: Swirl bottle well before using each time. Do not shake. It will only make a mess all over your inserted mascara wand. Before applying each time make sure to slide the mascara bristles along the edge of the bottle to remove excess oil. Trust me, even after doing this you will still have too much on your mascara wand. A little definitely goes a long way. No need for double dipping at all.
Bonus Beauty Tip : having this serum on your eyes at night not only will help your eyelashes become the beauties you’ve always wanted but each one of these ingredients are also good for fine lines and wrinkles. This serum over your lids at night can help to fight away those pesky lines. (While it is not proven that this form of application can help the fine lines and wrinkles it has been proven before that these ingredients are good for your skin for fighting such issues. So in theory having this applied already to the eyelids it should have a seemingly good affect to the skin as well.) Talk about your double duty beauty product.
