I used to avoid gel eyeliner as it’s troublesome to use and you really need to be good to use it. I’m nothing near to good when I first started with eyeliner even with liquid. I only got hooked to gel eyeliner after all liquid eyeliner smudge on me due to my eye’s tearing issue. After being persuaded by a friend then only I venture to gel. I did some research on how to use gel eyeliner and let’s just say since then I never look back. Gel eyeliner are much more natural-looking, way more easier to draw (if you know the trick) and staying power is far better. However there’s always a down side. Less than a month upon opening my new pot, the gel hardened. I tried a simple trick to revive hardened gel eyeliner which work perfectly. Here’s what I’ve been practising to revive my pot of hardened gel eyeliner and hope it benefited you too. It’s really simple.
All you need is a hair dryer and of course your hardened gel eyeliner.
The rest of the steps are pretty simple. Just ON your hair dryer and point it directly to your jar of eyeliner. Don’t forget the sides, top and bottom of the jar. Do this for about 1 minute. If it’s still harden continue the process.
Do note that this effect doesn’t last long. You need to repeat this whenever your gel eyeliner hardened again. As for me I do it once a month.
If you are really really lazy…there’s a simpler way. Just pop this to microwave for 30 seconds and you’re done. I prefer hair dryer so I’ve never tried microwave before.
So girls. Don’t throw away your gel eyeliner if it hardened. There’s always a way to save it 😉
