Run out of eyeliner? Relax, there’s no need to panic! You’ve got options …

  1. Use what you have! Scoop out a small amount of loose eye shadow into a makeup mixing palette or the lid of your eyeshadow container. Add a few drops of makeup mixing medium. Blend well and apply with a liner brush. Don’t have any mixing medium? Add a drop or two of water. But, be careful not to add too much, or it will overly dilute the pigment of the eye shadow. Adding water instead of mixing medium will provide a softer, more neutral look.
  2. Want a liner with more staying power? Carefully dip a small liner brush into your mascara of choice. It will give the effect of a bold, liquid liner. And, the best part is, if you choose the right mascara (i.e., a waterproof one), it will last all day. Smile! You just made your liner tear-proof!
