Take the jar and put a third of a cup of warm water in the jar. Then put three tablespoons of powdered milk into the jar. Put the lid on the jar and shake up the contents in the jar. If the ingredients are in the right measurement you should have a liquid that is the consistency of heavy cream. If the mixture is runny put in some more powered milk and shake the jar again. If the mixture is to thick then add a little more warm water and shake the jar. To use this makeup remover take a wash cloth and wet it with some warm water. Just wet the cloth, don't soak the cloth. Put some of the makeup remover on the cloth and gently wipe it on your face until the makeup is removed.
