#21 - Makeup Edit - Reusing liquid eyeliner

It's not what it seems, and this will be quick.

Have you ever had liquid eyeliners which you just love because the brush just works for you? I have. And it pains me when the eyeliner dries out and I have to throw it away. Until I have accidentally kept a dried up eyeliner in the bathroom and was too lazy to go to the bedroom to grab an eyeliner brush to draw....eyeliner.

Ingredients:

  1. dried up liquid liner with synthetic brush tip that you like
  2. gel liner

Literally, that's it: dip your brush in your preferred gel liner and apply as you would do with it. It's no different from using a normal brush, but personally using this method means I have better control with this brush over the other eyeliner brushes I have. Muscle memory in drawing eyeliner is one of the keys to good eyelining and it's always difficult to get used to a new eyeliner brush.

Final tip: please clean your brushes

Chance are that in using this eyeliner for already an extended period of time so it's always a good idea to clean it first before dipping into the gel liner (unfortunately I realised this after I dipped it in). Regardless of what you use, make sure you are happy with the cleaniness of it and I would avoid using it on other people unless it's been disinfected.

That's it for today, quick one as have been busy - how do people balance this whole full time job and blogging? I'm already stuck on what to post next - if anyone has any suggestions, please shoot my way :)
