OMG! What a pain in the ass to have to remove eye makeup. You spend all this time making sure you have your primer and eyeliner just right, and now that work is done it is time remove the eye makeup. But as usual, it takes more time to remove the face makeup, than it is the eye makeup.
I have come up with a few ways to remove your makeup in as little time as possible:
- MICELLAR WATER – There are a lot of micellar water on the market. More than I can mention. But I do have a favorite, and it is Garnier Skinactive. Let’s get real. Everyone knows not to scrub and pull there eyes when removing eye makeup. With Garnier Skinactive you can clean your eyelids in gentle sweeps. This micellar cleansing water attracts dirt like a magnet. And with that you have fewer tugs and pulls around the eye area. The Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water may be purchased at Ulta Beauty for $4.99.
- COCONUT OIL – Using coconut oil is great for removing eyeliner and mascara. Coconut oil is effective, moisturizing, natural and cheap. And it is great for waterproof mascara. Coconut oil breaks up water-resistant substances used in eye shadow and mascara, releasing them from the skin and lashes. And unlike your everyday eye makeup removers, the coconut oil is going to leave your skin soft and leave you young looking. The Coconut Oil at can be purchased at Wal-Mart for $3.60.
- VASELINE – The use of Vaseline is not a new idea, believe it or not. The useful petroleum jelly can help break down waterproof mascara, and it is wonderful for sensitive eyes. To use Vaseline petroleum jelly, you place some on your finger and massage the eye area until all the makeup comes off. Then clean away with a tissue or cotton and wash your face. You may buy Vaseline at Target for $1.79.
These are just a few suggestions for removing eye makeup. Remember to handle the removal process with great care because your skin is thinner and more delicate. Take it easy and remove that eye makeup.
