Carrying on with my mascara workshop, today's topic… removing the darn stuff once it's on!
Eye Makeup Remover //
I use Bioderma every night to remove my eye makeup. I like to do it separate to my cleanser as I find the micellar waters to be really gentle on my eyes and I like to use a cotton pad so I can really get into the root of the lashes without any irritation. I swipe the cotton pad downwards a couple of times and then once across for it to be completely removed. It's important to be gentle when doing this as your eye area can be really sensitive.
Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover //
If you're a waterproof mascara kinda gal, the micellar waters won't cut it. You'll need something oil based and one of my favourites is the Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover. It feels gentle on the eyes but completely removes waterproof makeup in only a couple of swipes. Don't forget to shake it up first to make it really work!
If you don't have a separate eye makeup remover or don't want to use one, oils work just as well. You can of course use an oil cleanser, like the Nude Cleansing Oil, you can use a standard face oil or if you're feeling really adventurous you can try using coconut oil. I haven't tried it myself but apparently it works! Most oils work because they break down the makeup and it really is the quickest way to get the stuff off.
What's your favourite way to remove mascara?
