My sister called me upset.
She had pink eye (or so she thinks) she said her eyes 👀 were kind of closed shut!!! For days!
She like me is in love with a good black eyeliner applied to the inner rim of the eye for definition.
I asked her if she used anything new?
She said no just the same gel eyeliner I get from you! I asked is she sharpening it on a regular basis and she said yes. I also professionally recommended to her to wash her pencil sharpener regularly and she shouted ” What?” “WASH my eyeliner pencil sharpener?”
She told me in all her life she never ever washed it.” Do you really mean I need to wash it?” This sister is older than me and an artist and fashion illustrator. I couldn’t believe she does not do it yet treats her art supplies and palettes 🎨 like gold.
Needless to say, I just mailed her a new sharpener for her eyeliners. I encouraged her to book an appointment with her dermatologist or M.D.
Here’s my simple recipe to disinfect your eye 👁 and lip pencils.
And by the way, you need a different one for each type product. You can’t use the same one. You don’t want lip pigment in your eye area and you don’t want a dark eye liner around your lips when you apply lipliner. Get it?
What you will need:
1 bottle of Dawn dish washing liquid
1 box of alcohol wipe pads from the drug store.
Soak your sharpeners in soapy water. Pull out of the sink.
Next take a Q-tip and place it into the hole. And clean all around the area inside and on the backside. There will be pencil residue all in there.
Next, I rinse it and get any Q-Tip residue out the sharpener if there is any.
Then I wipe down with an alcohol pad. Or you can use anti-bacterial wipes. Do not rinse afterwards.
Allow the sharpener to dry. You’re disinfected and ready to go.
If you want to be even more sanitary. Use SterileLight and place it on the sanitizing case. Check them out on Instagram.
*NEVER share sharpeners or eye makeup or any makeup for that matter.
Be careful,clean and safe girls! Your eyes need TLC attention. Not worth losing your eyesight over. Germs are all around us!
