Lip and eye pencils are an essential item in any woman's makeup bag. They help you create a clear contour, emphasize color, and add depth and expressiveness to your makeup.

However, pencils have one significant drawback: they become brittle and break over time. Luckily, there is one way to extend their life, which was shared by professional makeup artist Carla Cruz on Instagram.

There are several reasons why makeup pencils can be brittle. The first is the poor quality of the pencil itself. Too cheap cosmetics are usually made of questionable materials that quickly lose their properties.

Another reason is careless use. If you frequently drop your pencils on the floor, it's no surprise that the core inside can get damaged.

However, the most common mistake that women often make and that often leads to pencil breakage is improper storage.

If you leave them in a humid and warm environment or exposed to direct sunlight, it can cause the pencils to dry out and become brittle.

However, don't get upset and spend money on new pencils. If you've already encountered the problem of brittleness. Try this ingenious life hack first.

Life hack with the freezer

Before sharpening your pencils, try putting your pencils in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Most cosmetics contain water, so when you expose the product to very low temperatures, the water molecules start to move and make the pencil nib harder.

This way, you can not only sharpen it enough but also make the process of applying makeup much easier.
