#3 Remove Mascara Properly
You tend to rub your eyelids and eyelashes too aggressively when you use a regular facial cleanser to take off mascara, so use a dedicated eye-makeup remover like the Cosme Decorte Eye and Lip Makeup Remover, $28, instead. Soak a cotton pad with it, press the pad against your eyelashes and hold for a few seconds. Then, gently wipe off the mascara with a downward motion. Repeat until no more mascara remains.
