Q. What do you do if your pencil eyeliner or lip liner is dry and not transferring very well. 

1. Run a hairdryer over it for a few seconds or run the tip though a flame for two seconds.
2. lightly test on the back of your hand. 
3. If too creamy let it cool for a few more seconds.
4. If not moist enough, repeat steps 1 & 2.

Make-Up Tip 3- Soft Lips

There are two ways to achieve soft lips without shelling a penny out for unnecessary lip scrubs.

1. Rub a moist flannel over the lip area to exfoliate dead skin cells.


2. When brushing your teeth, gently run the brush over your lips in a circular motion. This will also remove the dead skin cells that give the appearance of chapped dry lips. (This is my favorite method because it takes one second to do after brushing my teeth)

After these methods, don't forget to apply your favorite lip balm/lip butter. (My current favorite is Vaseline in Creme Brule)
