Fortunately, there’s a way to take off your makeup no matter if it’s a lip stain that’s basically morphed into your lips or faux lashes that aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Let’s start with the makeup-removal basics and work our way up to the serious stuff, ahead.
How to Remove Makeup Without Makeup Wipes:
STEP 1: Thoroughly wash your face for one minute with your favorite cleanser. We love an oil-based formula to easily take off foundation and long-lasting lipstick.
STEP 2: Consider double cleansing with a gentle formula for a more thorough cleanse and then pat your face dry with a towel.
How to Remove Waterproof Eye Makeup Without Makeup Wipes:
STEP 1: Saturate a cotton ball in an oil-based product specifically designed to remove eye makeup like Eye Makeup Remover.
STEP 2: Use gentle pressure to hold the cotton ball against your eye for about 10 seconds to help dissolve the makeup.
STEP 3: Finish by washing your face with cleanser. This will get rid of any lingering traces of makeup or residue. Rinse well and pat your face dry with a washcloth.
How to Remove False Lashes Without Makeup Wipes:
STEP 1: Massage a small amount of gentle eye-makeup remover onto the base of your false-lash strip to loosen the glue.
STEP 2: Start at the longest point (usually the outer corner) and carefully peel back your false lash, making sure none of your real lashes are stuck to the strip.
STEP 3: If you’re planning on using them again, reshape your false lashes and put them back into the case they came in.
How to Remove Long-Lasting Lipstick Without Makeup Wipes:
STEP 1: Start by washing your face with an oil-based makeup remover and use a cloth to blot away any oil or residue.
STEP 2: If the oil-based makeup remover doesn’t remove the long-lasting lipstick, apply a layer of petroleum jelly to your lips and let that sit for three minutes.
STEP 3: Dampen a washcloth in warm water and wipe away the petroleum jelly (which will remove your lipstick as well).
STEP 4: Rinse and dry your lips. Finish by applying a moisturizing lip balm.
