Hello, my name is Joi, and I'm a freelance makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to sharpen Mac liner pencils. So what we have today are our Mac liner, lip liner and our sharpener. So pretty much sharpening a Mac liner pencil is the same as sharpening any other. What you'll want to do is when your pencil gets to the point where the tip is no longer pointy, then you want to take your sharpener and depending on whether it's one of the large pencils or the smaller ones, you just insert it to the sharpener and you turn it until you've got a nice fine point and we've got a little dent there so you put it back in if that happens. We've got a nice little point there and your pencil is sharpened. Another thing that you can do because sometimes when you sharpen the pencil gets a little bit too pointy and that doesn't feel good on your lips so you can take it on the back of your hand and just kind of twirl it like that to soften it a little bit and there you go, your pencil is ready for use. So thank you for watching. My name is Joi, have a good day.
