The other day I had the urge to use a gel eyeliner, but when I found mine from the bottom of my make-up box it was all dried up. There was still plenty in there and I really didn't want to throw it away. So after some googling I found a way to save it.
|Dried up, but still plenty left.|
I found several different methods, but most included adding things to it and mixing it, e.g. almond oil. Because I use my eyeliner in my waterline I really didn't want to add anything to it in case of eye irritation.
This method was the one that appealed to me.
Dried gel eyeliner
Cup of hot water
Zip lock back
Step 1 - Place the eyeliner tub inside the zip lock bag (ensure the lid is on tightly)
Step 2 - Fill up a glass with hot water, place the bag containing the eyeliner inside the cup.
Step 3 - Leave for 20 - 30 minutes
Step 4 - Stir with a cotton bud
Step 5 - You're done! Eyeliner is as good as new... well, as new as a half full tub of eyeliner can be! The warm water melts the dried up bits and restores it back to life.
Now lets compare them side by side.
Yep, definitely can see the difference.
Hope you fnd this useful! Let me know if there are any other how to-s you'd like me to show you.
