#LabalabaFixIt: Solution to Lumpy Mascaras and Eyeliners!!




I had Conjunctivitis aka "apollo" a while ago... Trying to remember how I got infected isn't exactly a pleasant memory, so, I'd just skip that story.

Anyway, while reading Banke Meshida's blog, I saw a post on fixing mascaras and how you can use eye drops. 

Yes ooo!! some eye-drop-fixing-movement... I was already thinking of disposing the new eye drops my sister got me.

It just felt like the spirit led me to read her blog that day. I even tried it and it worked...it also worked for my liquid eyeliner!! I shall put you through.
For those following me on Instagram, if you have noticed my sudden winged eyeliner game, it's because my eyeliner became easier to apply after "diluting" it...

Items Needed
  1. Old Mascara
  2. Old Eyeliner
  3. Eye Drops

Step 1: Old Mascara


Step 2: Add eye drops gradually...(8-9 drops, depending on lumpiness of the mascara).


Step 3: New Mascara


Repeat the same process for liquid eyeliners!


Finis!

Pretty Straightforward.

Side Note: If your mascara is old or/and has expired, it's either you toss out the product OR use it for your hair edges, gives the illusion of fuller edges (...you're welcome *wink*)...

Also, I think it'd be useful to let everyone know when it is time to toss their makeup products, So, here's a list of makeup items and their shelf life.

PRODUCTWHEN TO TOSS
Powders (including blushes, bronzers, and shadows)Two years
Cream shadows and blushes12-18 months
Oil-free foundationOne year
Cream compact foundation18 months
Concealers12-18 months
Lipstick and lip linerOne year
Lip gloss18-24 months
Pencil eyelinerTwo years
Liquid or gel eyelinerThree months

I've had some products longer though. As my money cannot waste, I came up with solutions to it. It's all about proper maintenance really - disinfecting it often,cleaning it AND avoid sharing!

Hope this helps someone out there!

TWO POSTS TODAY??...I think it is obvious I'm in a good mood! *big grin*
