        Liquid liner dried out? Why and how to solve it?

        Liquid liner dried out? Why and how to solve it?

        After using for a short while, you found the recently purchased eyeliner pen does not provide that constant flow the advertisement promised? You can shake it out but the liner pen still gets gloppy? The lifespan of liner pens are so short?

         

        Actually, we don’t need to chuck them as soon as they do not flow. Now we are going to show you why this happened and how to save your liquid liner pens.

        Why?

        1.In contact with oil-based skincare products?

        As people become more aware of skin care, pre-makeup protection is no longer neglected. But only a few people know the oil eye creams contain can affect the flow of liquid liner. So if you have oily lids, bear in mind to let the eye skincare product to be fully absorbed before you draw the liner.

        2.In contact with powder makeup?

        It’s more than likely that eyeliner is the last step in eye makeup routine, which means the foundation and eyeshadow could clot up the tips. That’s why makeup artists always recommend you to set the makeup first, and draw the liner on dry skin.

        3.Is the cap fastened after each use?

        After each use, fasten the cap! This is because some film formers are added in liquid liner to ensure a prolonged wearing. When they are exposed in the air, the tips will form a waterproof film to stuck the ink flow.

         

         

        Here are the solutions to save your liquid liner pens!

        1.Give it a good rinse

        Regularly wash the tips with warm water and dry with a napkin. Put the cap back on and place it tip-side down, then run the tip on the back of your hand until the ink flow.

        2.Shake shake shake

        With the cap on, tip-side down, give it a good shake till the liquid is flowing to the tip-side. Then always place the liner pens tip-side down and put the cap on after each use.

        3.A thorough clean

        Check if there is clots on the felt-tip or the brush-tip. The fast-drying liquid liner pens are likely to form gel substance. Scrape the clots and gel on the tip so it should provide that constant flow.

        Makeup gurus use their products and tools in a highly skilled way, what’s more, they know how to achieve multiple functions with a single piece. Today we are going to play the trick with eyebrow pencils and prove that it is so much more than doing the brows.

        1, Draw the brows

        The hair color determines the shade of your eyebrow pencil; besides, choose accordingly based on the makeup style. We know the brows should be lighter than your hair in case they cast all the attention on the face, check out the Gilted Tang eyebrow pencil T01 dark brown, T02 soft black and T03 soft brown, and decide which one suits you the best.

         

        2, Contour the nose

        After foundation, use your brow pencil to draw two straight lines along the nose bridge and blend with finger tips. This is when you realize brow pencil can be used as contour to make your nose appear straighter.

         

        3, Eyeliner

        You have realized the black eyeliner sometimes appear unnatural and stiff, why not try the same technique but with brow pencil. The color appears softer and delivers a more wearable effect.

         

        4, Eyeshadow

        Now you get the gist of it, draw a thinker eyeliner with brow pencil and blend well with finger tip or cotton swab.

         

        5, Lip liner

        Yes, use your brow pencil as lip liner. Especially if you use light brown shade, it gives you fuller lips when it is paired with red or nude tone lipsticks. While delivering a plumped effect, the liner helps to correct the asymmetry of the lips.

        Will lipsticks fade my natural lip color?

        Will lipsticks fade my natural lip color?

        It’s most common to wear lipsticks everyday, and you wonder if the cosmetics will make your lips lose color? The answer is No.

        The loss of lip color is usually caused by exposure to the sun and ageing. What’s more, after applying lipstick, it is advised to remove it with lip&eye makeup remover. Especially when you use some long-lasting products such as matte lipsticks or lip stains, without being properly removed, the residue will make your lips appear darker. In short, frequent use of lipstick will not fade or darken your lip color when the product is of good quality and being removed thoroughly.

         

        It is interesting to notice that on QUORA, makeup artists and beauty writers lay emphasis on branded lipsticks. Well established brands make sure the ingredients are safe and in line with international standards.

        So is Palace Identity Chinese Dragon Lipstick, safe on the lips and almost too pretty to use.  It’s not only paraben-free, but also infused with natural herbs to nourish the lips. The matte finish does not stain the cups nor the face masks. There are ten flattering shades to choose from with M10 Nude Apricot being the best seller. Based on our research, half of our customers purchased the Chinese Dragon Lipstick as a gift because of its exquisite packaging and embossment on the bullet.

Silver sulfide is what causing the silverware to turn black. After the lipstick absorbs it, the silverware will appear polished and brighter. Also, some lipsticks also contain titanium oxide particles, which can remove dirt on the surface of silverware. Providing the silverware has a flat surface, for you don’t want the lipstick to stuck in your carved silver jewelry.
