How to prevent eyeliner breakage

When I sharpen my eyeliners, the sharpener tends to make the makeup portion (as opposed to the wood) long before it gets sharp. It then breaks if I try to sharpen it to a point. This has been an ongoing issue with multiple pencils (and sharpeners!) and is even worse now that I'm using UD's Perversion - it's just so soft! What am I doing wrong?

I would agree with the previous post. Make sure the lid is fully closed to because it could be your pencil is slightly dried. I have the nars sharpener and it works really well to sharpen all my pencils.
