take it all off, baby!
i look ardently for products that stay put all day long. when i apply at 6:30 in the morning, i expect it to last until i'm home again, which could be after 9:00 pm!
i know it sticks. but how do i get it to come back off???
the right eye makeup remover can totally streamline your routine. if you apply long-wearing or waterproof makeup, trying to clean your face with the wrong makeup remover can be very frustrating. you could be scrubbing for DAYS, and that's not good for your skin. i once bought makeup remover that wasn't waterproof (i thought it was), and after using it twice i simply gave up and cut my losses.
here are my favorite makeup removers, in order of preference:
-Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover. it's pricey ($26.00) but it really is the best. it takes off every bit of mascara, eye shadow, even glitter. it also doesn't leave your eyes in a pool of oily residue, which is good when you are taking off old eye makeup and plan on putting more right back on in a few minutes.
-Sephora Face Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover To Go. for $6.00, it gets the job done. it takes a few more swipes, but it is also good at not leaving residue.
-Almay Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Liquid. this is my pick when i'm nowhere near a department store or a mall that has a Sephora and i'm desperate for eye makeup remover. it does an okay job of removing, but out of the three, this one leaves a lot of oily remover behind. i don't mind it if i'm getting ready for bed, but if i'm simply redoing my eye makeup i have to wait to mop everything up. it's definitely affordable, though.
