Hi, my name is Joi, makeup artist in New York, and today I want to show you all how to get makeup off of a blouse. So, I’ve got my blouse here, it’s got a nice bright red stain there. Got some tissues, and I have a soap that I’m going to be using. So, the first thing that you want to do is, you don’t want it to rub. You want to spray with a pre-treater if you have. Let that sit for a couple minutes. And then, you want to follow up with your soap, making sure that you saturate where your stain is. Okay. So, we saturate that there, and we’re going to let this sit for at least 10 minutes, and this is going to actually give the detergent time to break down all the dyes and all the chemicals and the pigments that are in the lipstick. And then, we’re going to come back with another paper towel, and we’re just going to start dabbing, okay? And now, the purpose of the paper towel on the bottom is actually to be sure that none of the lipstick or the detergent bleeds through on any other surfaces or on the back of the blouse. Now, as you can see here, the stain is starting to lift off. We haven’t actually had 10 minutes for it to soak in, but you can kind of see that the lipstick pigment is fading. With 10 minutes of time, you’ll actually be able to easily dab off the red lipstick or any other color lipstick that you have staining your shirt. Okay. So, go out and try this, I hope it works for you all. And, thank you for watching, my name is Joi. Bye!
