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┬áthat’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.
