How to Remove Your Eye Make-Up Properly

Make-up RemovalEye make-up is fun to play around with. With some eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara, you can make a bold statement and create works of art using different colours and shades. While our grandparents may only have used brown or black eyeliner and mascara, nowadays, we have an endless array of colourful options. However, while applying make-up is loads of fun, it’s equally important to remove it as carefully as you apply it.

Going to bed with your make-up on is really bad for your skin, and if you want to look youthful and glowing for as long as possible, proper make-up removal is key. This gives your skin a chance to rest and you can start with a fresh canvas the next day. Have you ever thought that you removed everything, only to wake up with raccoon eyes the next day? Your eyes need some extra care during this process. Here are a few tips on how you can remove your make-up properly:

  1. Do not rub your eyes too vigorously or use harsh soaps: You do not want to damage your eyes and the skin around them while taking off your eye make-up. Use a gentle make-up remover, soft cotton pads, or make-up-remover wipes with warm water to help you remove everything. Do not rub your eyes too harshly.
  2. Use an oil-based remover: You can use an oil like olive oil or coconut oil or get an oil-based eye make-up remover, as it will help you to trap the dirt. You can apply the oil-based remover over the skin and gently wipe away with a cloth or cleansing wipes. This should help you get rid of the remaining make-up residue.
  3. Double-cleanse: After oil-cleansing, wash your face as you normally do. This will help you to remove what is left on the skin around your eyes.
  4. Finish your routine: Follow these cleansing steps by toning and moisturising your skin.

We hope you have found these tips helpful. Remember that with great eye make-up comes great responsibility.
