Hi, everyone. I’m Joi, makeup artist. And today, I’m going to show you all how to clean a lip liner sharpener. So, what I have with me today are just a couple of Q-tips here, and I’m going to be using a little bit of alcohol. So, we’ve got our sharpener, and I’ve actually already spritzed a bit of my alcohol on my Q-tip, and I’m just going to take it and rub. So, we’re cleaning the blade, and if you have any sort of debris, any remains from your liner, just want to kind of rub it. The cotton from the swab will sort of absorb it up, and the alcohol actually kind of acts as a sanitizer. Okay. You can do this for both sides, I’ve got a double-sided sharpener here. And, this is actually something helpful to make sure that your sharpener keeps functioning properly, because lip liners do tend to be a bit waxy. So, if you get a lot of that buildup caught up in here, then it’s going to be hard to sharpen your pencils. But, just do this every once and a while, just kind of depending on how often you are using liners. Okay. And, if you choose to – if it gets a little grimy on the outside, you can also do it to clean the entire sharpener. So, that was it. Thank you all for watching, and enjoy your day!
