Taking makeup off at the end of the day seems to be easy. But are you sure you are doing it right? Because if you don’t remove makeup before going to bed (or if you do it wrong), you are congesting your skin. As a result you get puffiness in the area around your eyes, breakouts and blemishes all over your face. In other words, practicing some of the best ways to remove makeup will help your skin preserve its youthful appearance and health.
If your makeup removal skills are second to none, you are lucky. It means you know how to cleanse, exfoliate and nourish your skin properly. If you’re not sure what the best way to remove make up is, you’re welcome to read our makeup expert’s tips. We’ll tell you how to cleanse your face properly even when you’ve got full makeup on: lots of foundation, waterproof red lipstick, eyeliner, waterproof mascara, fake lashes etc.
Your easy way to remove makeup: tips
- avoid using wipes: simply wiping the surface of your face is not enough to take off even a little bit of makeup you’re wearing
- repeat the cleansing routine twice: first to remove makeup, then to clean your face thoroughly
- when you cleanse for the second time: massage your face and neck to enhance circulation and make your skin look radiant
Removing make up: best way to start
If you’re rocking bright lips, begin your cleansing routine with them. Otherwise (if you start with your foundation, for example) your red lipstick may smear all over your face. After removing your lipstick move on to the eyes. You can opt for using olive oil to remove make up naturally. Or (if you don’t like oily make up removers) choose the best cleanser from the products recommended by our makeup experts in the previous posts.
Best way to remove eye makeup: eyeliner
You should always keep in mind that the skin around your eyes is exceptionally thin and tender compared to the rest of your face. Make sure that you remove make up from this area very softly. The best way to remove eye makeup is to soak a few cotton pads in the product you’re using, then hold and pat them onto the eyes for about sixty seconds. This loosens the makeup letting it come off softly and easily.
After a minute gently ease each pad off, as if you’re softly persuading your mascara and false lashes to come off. By practicing this trick you will take nearly all of your mascara off, even if it’s super waterproof. Avoid rubbing or pulling on the skin in this area. Otherwise it will aggravate your eyes and lead to wrinkles. Just let the pads sit on your eyes for a minute until you can take your eye make up off gently in one sweep.
This will easily remove your false eye lashes too. If you want to, you can use the false eye lashes you’ve just removed. If you haven’t opted for an oily remover, your falsies can be definitely used more than once. They’re in a perfectly good condition. Just clean them off a little bit more, put them on a tissue and stick them on again whenever you wish. Now that you’ve finished removing your mascara and eyeliner, it’s time to move on to the base.
Best way to remove foundation make up
When removing your foundation makeup, don’t forget to also cleanse your neck and even the area behind your ears. When you’re done taking off your base, rinse your face with warm water. After you’ve done a final rinse there’s normally a tiny bit of mascara left under your eyes. Use a cotton bud on the roots of your lashes to remove anything that’s come off during the final rinse.
If at the end of your cleansing routine you feel that you need to be a bit fresher, use your toner. If you’re interested in the best cleanser to remove make up from all over your face our experts have already discussed this issue in our previous posts.
