Creating Your Own Gel Eyeliner

We all know the struggle of needing a specific makeup product but not having it on hand. But fear not! With a simple trick, you can transform your regular eye pencil into a smudgier, gel-like eyeliner. Here's how:

Step 1: Gather Your Materials: To get started, you'll need a regular eye pencil and a lighter or a match. Make sure you have a safe and controlled environment to perform this technique.


Step 2: Applying Heat: Hold the tip of the eye pencil under the flame of the lighter or match for approximately one second. Be careful not to hold it too close or for too long to avoid any damage to the pencil or injury.


Step 3: Allowing it to Cool: After applying heat, allow the pencil to cool for around 15 seconds. During this time, the consistency of the pencil will change before your eyes. It will become softer and more malleable, transforming into a gel-like texture.


Step 4: Smooth Application: Once cooled, your DIY gel eyeliner is ready to use. The softened pencil will now glide effortlessly and smoothly onto your eyes, allowing you to create precise lines or achieve a smudged, smoky effect.

Important Safety Considerations

While the DIY gel eyeliner technique can be a helpful hack, it's essential to prioritize safety when working with open flames. Here are a few key points to keep in mind:

Step 1: Ensure Proper Ventilation: Perform this technique in a well-ventilated area to minimize the inhalation of fumes and prevent the buildup of any unpleasant odors.


Step 2: Practice Caution: Always exercise caution when working with fire. Keep a safe distance between the flame and yourself, and avoid any flammable objects in your surroundings.


Step 3: Test the Temperature: Before applying the heated pencil to your eyes, check the temperature on the back of your hand or another non-sensitive area to ensure it's comfortable and safe for use.


Remember, this DIY gel eyeliner method is intended for emergencies or situations where you don't have access to a regular gel eyeliner. It's always recommended to use professional-grade products for long-term use.

We hope you find this quick tip helpful in those moments of desperate need.
