DIY "Back in Black" Mascara

It’s been said that “the eyes are the windows to the soul”—so why not treat them with tender, loving care? It’s essential to not only make sure you know what’s in your mascara, but also to ensure that anything you put on your eyes is sterile because eye infections are no fun at all, and they’re unfortunately really easy to contract.

What You'll Need:

  • Sterile gloves
  • 2 teaspoons aloe vera gel

  • Clean mascara container
  • An oral sterile syringe or sterile pipette
