Removing makeup at the end of a long day can be a daunting task.
Thank God for makeup removal wipes because ain’t nobody about to start washing their face after a heavy night out. It’s so tempting to opt for these any time you’re feeling lazy, but it just isn’t as good as a good and fresh wash, especially if you don’t want a breakout on your face a day or two after. All the effort and time you take to get your face beat should be just as much as getting your makeup off before bed.
There are countless of makeup removers you can get, but sometimes those with alcohol can be harsh on your skin, especially if you’ve got sensitive skin so you should be mindful of what you buy and these removal tips are here to help you out.
Getting rid of makeup around the eyes can be hard because the eyes are very sensitive. Eyeliner and mascara are the worst culprits and a lot of us struggle with hurting our eyes. Eye makeup remover should be used with a Q-tip and gently dabbing the eyeliner off. Mascara can be cleaned off by gently using cotton and pressing against the lashes until it breaks off, and wash after.
Matte lipstick may be amazing and long lasting but it does come with its downside. You should start off by applying some Vaseline and letting it sit for a few minutes so as to loosen the lipstick and then follow by exfoliating your lips gently with a lip exfoliate or a toothbrush. Hello soft lips!
3. For your foundation
Cream-based foundations are more difficult to remove than liquid foundations because they contain oils. You should first start off with makeup removal wipes or your usual cleanser to get rid of most of the foundation and then dab some micellar water on cotton to get rid of any left over foundation. This doesn’t need to be rinsed off.
