As someone obsessed with eyeliner, nothing is more painful than seeing it brittle and all broken up! Luckily, for any pencil-type makeup – eyeliner, brow pencil, lip liner – there is a simple way to making them work again.
If your pencil keeps breaking as you shapen – or worse, as you’re applying – it could be that the lead inside is brittle and prone to breaking completely.
But one way to harden it again is to keep it in the fridge for 2 hours. When you take the pencil out again, it’s a miracle! However, it is quite ‘hard’ afterward, so warm the pencil by drawing a few circles in your palm… your pencil then should be as good as new.
Have you tried out this tip yourself? I did recently and it works like a charm.
