How to remove EYE MAKEUP without removing lashes!
Products that will change your life.
It’s one thing to enjoy gilding the lily during the day, but not so much fun every night when it comes time to take it all off, and eye make-up can be the trickiest. Too much force and you’ll lose lashes and irritate the skin under the eyes. If this is you, you’re not doing it right!
Do a first pass First, you should do a general clean sweep. Don’t worry about the particulars, just use a gentle wipe or gel to remove most of the makeup on your face. For heavy (or stage) makeup, you may need to use a more substantial product, such as an oil-based cleanser.
Cleanse thoroughly Splash tepid water on your face and gently massage face wash all over, including the eye area, just keep your eyes closed! Then, pat skin dry with a towel.
Take care of eye makeup residue To get rid of the remaining bits of liner, mascara, and so forth, use a mild, fragrancefree eye makeup remover with a cotton ball to help prevent damaging the skin or lashes. Be gentle: press the cotton ball onto the lid, hold for a few seconds, then lightly wipe. NOTE: It’s important not to rub as this can stretch and worsen wrinkles, which is why using mild products and a light touch is important. If you’ve been an eye-rubber for years, don’t fret. Damage is reversible when you stop rubbing so change your habits now, and you should diminish wrinkles and fine lines in the long run!
