- Step-3. Apply
Immediately take the applicator near the eyelid with your eye closed. Apply the product on your upper eyelid base skin (the place where eyelashes meet the skin). Draw the line going from the innermost eyelashes to the outer part of eyes. Never apply the eye product on your lower lash line or inside your eyes. It is because the hair growth may occur in the unwanted regions also.

An excess amount of any solution that drips or remains on the eyelids should be carefully bloated away with the help of tissue.
- Step-5. Dispose of the applicator
It is best to use a sterile applicator each time you use the product on your eye. Repeat the complete process again for the other eye with preferably a new applicator brush. Using a new and sterile applicator will ensure to minimize the potential contamination if any.
