Here is what we think about Brianna’s video:
- She chose a really simple DIY Pinterest hacks to try out. As a result, the DIY eyeliner did not work out too well. She used colored pencils as eyeliner and lip liner. In a pinch, this DIY hack would work. However, there are much better alternatives to this hack that actually work.
- The eyeliner ended up being only lightly pigmented and somewhat crumbly. This isn’t terribly surprising considering that she used a heated colored pencil.
- We are a little concerned about the health aspect of this hack. While the colored pencil is essentially no different than an authentic eyeliner pencil, the compounds and ingredients used to make the pencils differ.
- A good, affordable alternative is DIY gel liner that uses activated charcoal capsules, Vitamin E capsules, and aloe vera gel. You can check out this video to learn more.
