Fast Friday: Re-Hydrating A Gel Liner

If you use a gel liner or brow pomade you know they can hit a point where they start to dry and
then they start to drag/skip on the eye lid. Most of these pots range in price from $15-$25. That's a lot of money to spend on something and then have it dry out. I live in Southern Nevada currently and that means about zero humidity, for a sped up drying process. I had to figure something out. Then it hit me. Spray a little M.A.C Fix + on it. This product is hydrating when sprayed on the skin and help to re-hydrate powder product on the face. It's also great for dry skin before and after makeup application. 

Why it works:
This product has tons of glycerin, which is a humectant. A humectant is an ingredient that helps to retain and preserve moisture. It's not only moisturizing on it's own, it also draws in moisture and pulls humidity into the skin. For that very reason this is amazing to use on a drying gel liner. I spritz one pump of it into my gel liner and let it sit a moment then I go in with my brush and the slip that it once had is back. You can also wet the brush directly along with wetting the product. Of course there is a point where you just have to say goodbye to a product, but not too soon. I also will sometimes spray one pump in and close the lid to help it to be more hydrated the next time I go to use it. 

I hope that this Fast Friday post has been helpful for you. Do you have any amazing tricks that I 
should know about? If so tell me in the comments. Thanks for reading and happy Friday!
