Always getting told how to put on makeup, tricks,tips etc.. But how to take off all the makeup ?

So I always get told how girls are doing their eyes,lips,contouring etc...

but is there a good way to take of makeup without over drying your skin ,scrubbing to much,tugging on your eyes to get all the mascara off and eyeliner?

i always suffer the next day my skin gets more oily my eyes get more puffy,and the dark circles look worse, what's a girl to do, to get a clean face after wearing full face makeup during the day.

any help and tips would be great!!!

Re: Always getting told how to put on makeup, tricks,tips etc.. But how to take off all the makeup ?

I use makeup wipes, mainly the Yes to Cucumbers ones since they are soft on my face. For my eyes I actually just sleep with it on. I have some raccoon eyes sometimes but then I get in the shower and it all comes off without me doing anything. I found out a long time ago I saved lashes this way because I wasn't tugging at them trying to get the mascara off. If I'm wearing a ton of eye makeup I use baby oil.

I also tried the wipes ,but they don't clean of all the makeup,and then I wash my face and I feel it's oily and not clean so I end up scrubbing like crazy, so that I don't break out, my eyes I also can't sleep with the mascara, eyeshadow etc... Because it burns my eyes ,so I clean them with the lancome makeup remover ,but on top of that I hate the smudges it leaves on my pillow cases if there is even a little left on my eyes , so I take a wipe and cream and clean of all the rest, so my face is burning and so are my eyes ;-(

even after the shower I can't seem to get eyes completely clean

Well this works for me most of the time, but I usually wear a minimal amount of makeup.  I also have to wash with a cleanser. If I do have a good bit of makeup on I'll wash my face with a little bit of product. Then I'll use my clarisonic to make sure I get it all. Oil in general will dissolve makeup really well though. I know they have cleansing oils but I've used virgin olive oil before.

My surefire way of getting all make-up off at night withouth destroying my skin:

  • Eyes - Neutrogena ultra-soft eye makeup remover pads: soft and gets even waterproof; you can also use cold cream
  • For long wearing lipstick - after blotting off the top layer, dap a little bit of vaseline onto your finger and rub it across your lips; after a couple of minutes (while you wipe your eye makeup off), use a tissue and gently wipe off the vaseline
  • Wash face with cleansing oil
  • Lip balm
  • Then, you can follow-up with usual skincare routine or just go to sleep (with a clean, fresh face)

Can you use cleansing oil on acne prone/ oily skin without breaking out ?

Re: Always getting told how to put on makeup, tricks,tips etc.. But how to take off all the makeup ?

Yep!  It sounds counterproductive but it's actually not.  You just have to find the right one.  I live and die by Shu Uemura - pricey but it's replaced all other cleansers for me.  They have a fresh pore clarifying gentle version for combo-to-oily skin.

 

I see a Boscia one on Sephora with reviews you can read.  I haven't tried this cleansing oil but have used other Boscia products.

I have also used Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Purifying Cleansing Oil but not sure if that will be good on oily skin.

Definitely try to get samples before committing to cleansing oils if you haven't used them in the past.  Be sure to read and follow the directions - many are dry application that you add water to.

I will look into it, I have a lot of products, I can probably open my own Sephora/ macys you name it, but I want one thing without all the steps for eyes and face and cleansers and toners and all that to get a clean face,after makeup aapplications my wrinkles are growing by the minute!!!

Lol!!!

Re: Always getting told how to put on makeup, tricks,tips etc.. But how to take off all the makeup ?

I feel your pain.  I have so many products, but a lot of them are going away (or being donated to friends/family) not that I finally admitted that I don't have the skin I had in my 20s.  Now money goes into retinol, vitamin C, and facial treatments.

Re: Always getting told how to put on makeup, tricks,tips etc.. But how to take off all the makeup ?

Omg!!!!

me toooooooo, I am spending sooooooo much on creams /lotions to keep the wrinkles at bay, but I worry from all the rubbing and scrubbing that retinol, vita c, won't work anymore
