Move over kiddies! I was always a crayon type of girl. But this makeup hack has me rethinking my art supplies. All that is required is one box of non toxic coloring pencils and a little imagination. I rummaged through my closet and found a container filled with coloring pencils. In my haste, I skipped the cup procedure featured in the video and ran the point of a red coloring pencil under hot water for less than a minute. Worked like a charm. However, I'll let the pencil sit in a cup of hot water next time. Reflections: The coloring pencil has some real staying power. I rubbed my arm to check for smudge level, and it took some thumb strength to rub a portion of it off. As I vingle away, I am still sporting a magnificent shade of red from the coloring pencil. Could this be 8, 10 or 24 hour wear?! Oh the possibilities are, well, colorful!! Hello new eyeliner & lip liner!
