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 ?

boohoo I guess I should admit it too....at the back of my mind I still think "if only I could find the right moisturizer" but you really can't turn back the clock!  on the other hand i've had a really good time researching skincare ingredients and products!

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

I got the harsh truth from beauticians when I got facials recently - two separate ones in two different cities.  One even showed me, CLOOOOSE-UP, where I need to start taking care of my face.  She made a good point though - just like how artists prepare their canvases before putting paint on it, we need to prep our faces before putting make up on it.  You don't want to try to cover up flaws with makeup (at least not all the time).  You want to make the skin the best it can be before the makeup.  She was like a "Makeup Miyagi"..hahaha

Wax on, Wax off!!!  LOL

 

My favorite way to camouflage dark circles, fine lines, dry skin around my eye area is to just wear my thick coke-bottle glasses.  No fuss, no muss. Smiley Very Happy

But with all the money we spend you would think we don't need to ache after removing makeup, let me know of anything that you can think of for aging skin, I can't believe I just wrote that especially since I also still have breakouts on my skin ,boohoo !!!!

Like I always say I have wrinkles like an old woman,and pimples like a teenager :-() boohoo to me!!!!

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

I wonder if there is a easy way without a thousand steps to be able to take off all the makeup in one swoosh, and not so many products that it hurts already , just one good one ?

 

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

If you want a simple, "one swoosh" but completely effective way, then, like @neko333 said, you'll need to wear make-up that comes off easily.  It's the price one pays when you get real high-quality, pigmented, and long-lasting products --> all the effort to take it all off.  I've looked for shortcuts in the past and they never really got my face clean.  I just surrendered to the fact that it takes just a little more time.  In the end, my face is better for it.

 

One facial wipe I've found better than others has been 

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Wipes - doesn't leave a residue, strong enough cloth that you can really work on hard to remove makeup a little more...doesn't get it all off, but as far as wipes go, it's make one out of 2 things you need.

 

Good luck!

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

Yes to koh gen do. I bought the cleansing spa water and it is amazing and so very gentle. I would love to try the wipes.

From your description, your skin sounds pretty sensitive.  My favorite makeup remover that I use to get everything off, whether it be foundation, concealer, mascara, eyeliner, etc, is Clinique's Take The Day Off Balm.  I don't like using cleansing clothes or pads because like you said, on days when my skin feels irritated those types of cleansers make my face hurt.  And some cleanser formulas make my eyes burn!  The Clinique seriously takes everything off but at the same time is totally mild and won't cause irritation or redness.

It's not the cleaning I'm worried about its how my face gets red and it hurts from all the scrubbing and wiping that's to much for my skin already, it just seriously hurts / burns the next day and I know I have to do it all over again, I end up a blotchy oil slick the next day, and I spend so much money to look like this, sad I know !!!

i will look into your recommendation it sounds good

Thanks !!!

ps. Any more good ideas keep them coming :-)

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

This is what I do to my sensitive, acne-prone skin every night:

1. Take my eye make-up with a 2-phase make up remover (like Lancome Bi-Facil or Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips) with Shiseido cotton. I feel that way it is much gentler on my eyes. If I fell any residue, I use Pureté Thermale Soothing Eye Make Up Remover For Sensitive Eyes, which feel almost like water ans smells wonderful.

2. If I had used sunscreen or foundation on, I put an oil make-up remover (Clinique Take the day off balm), massage it for a minute and wash it off.

3. After the oily cleanser, I use a sudsy facial cleanser, currently Peter Thomas Roth, which also needs to be massaged for a minute and rinsed of.

4. Pat my face dry with a paper towel (my skin is acne prone, I feel that it is more hygienic).

5. Apply my skin care regimen.

To avoid scrubbing, it's better to use face washes that contain exfoliating ingredients (but no scrubbing parts).
