Secret tips for removing your eye makeup smoothly

When waterproof mascara and eyeliner made their way into the market, women everywhere rejoiced. Not only do these formulas make it easier for makeup to adhere to the face for longer periods of time, but they relieve worries of smudging. However, one key difficulty still exists – removing the cosmetics. Certain eyeshadows, mascaras and eyeliners are nearly impossible to get off once they're on. 

If you love your waterproof makeup and you aren't ready to throw in the towel, there are a few tactics you can use to make the removal process a bit easier. First, be sure to choose a formulated makeup remover that's designed to get rid of the tough stuff. You'll notice a large difference in comparison to using plain old water!

Next, pour a few drops of the liquid into a cotton pad or ball, then dab around your eyes. After a couple of seconds, gently wipe it away from your peepers, and voila! No more makeup!

If you feel that this method doesn't work smoothly enough for you, the Los Angeles Times recommends using petroleum jelly instead. This can also help eye makeup easily leave your face.

Stars share their bedtime beauty secretsTo look their best after waking up, many women focus on perfecting the ideal skincare and makeup. However, many of Hollywood’s most glamorous beauties employ a few tricks before bedtime to help ensure that they look their best the next day.

“I never sleep in makeup,” Hayden Panettiere told People magazine. “I always make sure 100 percent that all my makeup is off.” And it seems that she is not the only fresh-faced beauty who feels this way.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s a make-up remover wipe or hotel hand soap or some cleanser, but you always have to wash your face,” Bush told the news source.

To remove a day’s worth of cosmetics, dirt and grime, women have a few options. A makeup remover, like Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make-up Remover, will eliminate cosmetic residue before cleansing. Women can also opt for a face wash that acts as a makeup remover and cleanser, such as Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Creme.

Lindsay Price also had her own tip to share. “My nighttime beauty secret is actually to exfoliate before you go to bed, because you’ve got your makeup from the whole day on you. Then you apply whatever products you use.”ADNFCR-3538-ID-19926421-ADNFCR
