Wow, has it really been that long since I shared a beauty quick tip here on my site? Because beauty and fashion often take up more time in our day than we care to admit, simple solutions and shortcuts are always welcome – whether that means saving a few minutes in the morning or totally changing your eyeliner game. Today I thought I’d share a trick that does both, and could even save a few beauty products too.

how to sharpen eye pencil

Those of you who use eye pencils to get the perfect liner look – or even those who use brow pencils – know how frustrating it can be to sharpen them. For some reason, certain pencils just don’t take the sharpener; they begin to crumble the second it hits the blade. You keep spinning the pencil, and suddenly you’ve used up half of your product and have nothing to show for it. Next time you run into this problem, don’t trash the liner (or sharpener for that matter).

Instead, stick your eye pencil in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes. There’s no set amount to do this, but you do need to give it enough time to harden a bit. If sharpening your pencil always ends in disaster, toss it in the freezer while you do the rest of your routine. Then, take it out, sharpen, and voila! No more crumbling pencil.

Let me know if you’ll be trying this method!
