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 am surprised to read you recommend the Simple sensitive skin cleanser wipes. I recently bought this product and could not be more disappointed.  

 

The Simple wipes are misleading.  Is says "kind to skin" "simple goodness", "No artificial perfumes or dyes"  If you turn the package over and read the fine print it says - "that will irritate your skin"

 

These wipes have a very strong perfume/ scent  inside them.  The smell sticks to you and lingers for hours after one use.  I tried washing my face and hand after using one but the scent stayed.  I was still smelling it 4 hours after washing my face.  

 

I feel that people who have sensitive skin should not go anywhere near this  product.

Haha, that's ok! No worries, I don't feel like it was personal or anything.

 

I don't have extremely sensitive skin so I can't vouch for whether or not the Simple wipes are the best for sensitive skin types but personally, they've worked really well in terms of getting rid of my makeup and not drying my skin out. I know they do four different versions these days but I always buy the regular ones that came out first and I've never really noticed a lingering scent. 

 

I've tried quite a few makeup wipes before, including the Ole Henrikson and the Sephora brand ones but they don't seem to do well. I used to use the Target ones which were fine. Nowadays, I use the Koh Gen Do wipes but those are fairly pricey so Simple is what I stick with on a daily basis (for when I do wear makeup/sunscreen).

 

To each their own! And everyone's skin is different so for every one person that likes them, I'm sure there's another that doesn't Smiley Happy I'm sorry they didn't work out for you though!

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

ps - I did not mean to single you out.  I have been wanting to post something about my experience with the Simple brand wipes.  I am new to this whole posting thing.  

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

I use straight Jojoba oil to take my make up off. Everything comes off! I just put a few drops in my hands and rub them together, then massage it into my face. Rinse, then cleanse as usual. No tugging, or harsh rubbing. You can find it at health food stores, whole foods, & I've even seen jojoba oil at trader joes on a few occasions.

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

Second/third/fourth everyone who recommends Take the Day Off Balm. It really melts the makeup off, and it comes in a HUGE jar. You only need a little for it work its magic, so it lasts a LONG time.

 

While it does a good job of removing waterproof makeup, even mascara and lip stains, I tightline and it can be a stubborn to remove. I do use the Clinique Take the Day off for Lids, Lashes, and Lips and then go in with a q-tip to make sure everything's gone from my lash line!

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

I knew all my beauty insiders would have the answer for me !!!!

you are all the best, Thanks !!!!

i will try all your recommendations, they sound soooooo good.

 

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

Glad to help! And like others mentioned, use another cleanser (like a foaming face wash) after using the cleansing balm or a cleansing oil. That way all of your makeup is 100% gone. I actually got that tip from Lisa Eldridge's makeup tutorials!

 

I definitely think the Take the Day Off Cleansing balm or any cleansing oil is a good solution for you, because you don't have to rub hard at all to get your makeup off. Just gently massage it and smooth it over your skin. It's such a great product, and gentle enough for sensitive skin (which I have!).

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

Hi beautifyme123,

 

I always start off by removing my makeup with a removal wipe. There are tons of different ones on the market but my favorites are the Sephora Collection removal wipes. I can generally remove most of my makeup with just one of these guys, but I'll use two if I'm wearing a more 'extreme' makeup look. Following this I'll hop into the shower (usually I'll use my clarisonic in there for a deeper facial cleansing). When I get out of the shower I will go along my lash line with a Q-Tip soaked in the Sephora Collection, but the new Sephora Collection Targeted Eye Remover Swabs effortlessly combine both steps! This is an excellent way to make sure you're removing all traces of pesky makeup.

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

I swear by coconut oil for taking my makeup off. I don't like using the wipes and other products because they irritate my eyes and I just dont feel like they take everything off. I use a cotton swab, dip it into some coconut oil, and rub my eyes and face. Everything comes off! I love coconut oil for taking makeup off, and it does a lot of other things too! Good luck!

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

I usually just wash my face with my cleanser and that gets mostly all of it off. If I have any leftover, I will use my Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover on a cotton pad and remove it that way.

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

I swear the Olay wipes are the best thing for getting rid of heavy makeup, I usually use them when I've worn foundation or for Halloween. On a day to day basis I use an oil based eye makeup remover and the Cover FX makeup remover, its a foam and the best thing ever for getting off makeup. 

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

I love Olay wipes! They are the only ones I tried that are both gentle and get the job done!

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

A rocker chick's guide to makeup removal:

 

1. Wake up at noon (because last night's show kept you out until at least 2 am), realize you're still wearing your stage makeup from the night before.

 

2. Utter some very unladylike language (be sure there are no children present).

 

3. Drag yourself into the bathroom...turning on the light is optional.

 

4. Pour some makeup remover onto a cotton round, cotton ball, a tissue, toilet paper, your sleeve, whatever. Apply to face wherever needed. If you don't have makeup remover, olive oil works too. So do baby wipes.

 

5. To get rid of gunky undereye makeup, dip a Q-tip in makeup remover, then run it under your eyes. Warning: you will probably get a little in your eyes...but it's cool since your vision is blurry right now anyway.

 

6. Take a shower (remember to remove any and all jewelry first). Make sure you have a good facial cleanser and use it. Say goodbye to all of the glitter, foundation, colors, hairspray and whatever else you gunked yourself up with as it runs down the drain.

 

7. Once you've dried & dressed, moisturize your face like crazy. And wash your pillowcase 'cause...eww.

 

Voilà! All done. Smiley Wink

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

No matter how drunk or tired I am, I ALWAYS remember to take off my makeup before bed. I may not get all the gunk off my eyes from tightlining & waterproof mascara, but I do try to get most of it off. 

& I never wash my face in the shower, the water temp it too high and I always end up with conditioner all over my face, so I need to wash it again, besides it wastes too much water... 

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

Haha so true. Smiley Tongue

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

Hahaha!!

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

I like an oil-based cleanser that takes off everything  - face, lips, eye make-up and swipe w/ a soft microfiber cloth. Easy peasy. I go to bed w/ make-up less than once a year. No matter how tired I am I drag myself to the bathroom and force myself to get my face clean. I might skip the rest of my usual nightly routine though.

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

Beware of Simple brand Cleansing wipes.  Not good for those with sensitive skin.  

 

 

 the Simple - Cleansing wipes for Sensitive skin.  I think these wipes are very irritating - mainly because of a oder , or scent that seems to be part of them.  I tried using just one and could not get rid of the awful scent.  

 

 

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

This is my go-to product for eyes and stubborn lip colors!

 

http://www.sephora.com/take-the-day-off-makeup-remover-for-lids-lashes-lips-P122735?skuId=48074

 

It's gentle and works great.  There was one waterproof mascara that didn't come off so well with it (a sample I got) so I just stopped using the mascara.

 

My face wash is Say Yes to Cucumbers Milk Face Wash, it's really gentle but helpful.  I also like the Jose Maran Cleansing Oil, neither of these leave my skin dry - just clean and soft.

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

The only thing I use to take off my makeup: Coconut Oil. Unrefined, cold pressed, Walmart bought coconut oil.

 

Why? Because it's an oil, it takes off EVERYTHING in one go. Even my stubborn Urban Decay waterproof eyeliner. My lips have no stands after I use my lipstick and my skin feels super soft to boot afterwards. This is what I do.

 

1. Get a warm wash cloth, put it on my face for a few seconds.

2. Get the coconut oil (if its not hot in your house it will be a soilid, if it's hot it'll be a liquid or kinda weird in texture) and just put it all over your face, or where your makeup is.

3.  Rewet the wash cloth with warm (warm more so towards hot for me) and just put it on your face

4. Let it sit (you don't have to, but my skin feels better after)

5. Wipe.

 

And that's it! Everythings off. 

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

Add me to the list of oil users. I usually use jojoba oil.

1. Wet face

2. Pour oil into hand

3. Massage over face

4. Massage over eyes and feel all of the gunk come right off

5. Open your eyes and make GRRRRRR faces in the mirror because that eye makeup will look crazy all over your eyes

6. Wet a washcloth with hot water and wipe all of the oil away

You really shouldn't need any moisturizers or anything after that and it doesn't burn/sting. If you wear contacts, you may have some blurry vision for a while if you get the oil in your eyes because it will coat your contact lenses for a bit.

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

I use a biphasic eye makeup remover, apply it to a cotton ball and use that to remove my eye makeup.  It usually takes a total of 2 or 3 cotton balls to remove it all.

 

Then I wash my face with my normal facial cleanser, which also removes makeup, to take off the rest of the makeup. 

 

I recently bought some coconut oil, it sounds like it works really well for some of you, but I'm not sure how to use it.  It is a solid and if I just dig a little bit out, it quickly turns into an oily mess all over my hands and face.  What's the best way to work with this stuff?  Thanks!

 

 

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

If you're having trouble with it, I would suggest running the jar under hot water to liquefy it before using. It's definitely something that you have to get used to. Pour a small amount into your palm (about the size of a nickel or quarter) and use the fingers of your other hand to massage the oil in until you have it all over and then you can use both hands to really work the oil in.

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

I used to use cleansing wipes but found that it caused me to tug on my skin too much. So now I use a cleansing water or micellar solution (currently using bioderma but have also used/loved the caudalie one) on a soaked cotton pad. i run that all over my face to remove all my makeup. i supplement with lancome eye makeup remover if i am wearing mascara or a lot of eye makeup. then, i cleanse with my normal night time cleanser. 

 

i used to skip the makeup removing step but found that my face wasnt entirely clean after just a cleanse. i also like having makeup remover/cleansing water around for lazy nights when i just want to pass out. it's so easy to swipe your face with it that there's no excuse not for me to at least remove my makeup before going to bed.

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

I first use baby wipes then noxema for sensitive skin. Then I apply cold water for a rinse followed by witch hazel as a toner. Next I apply whatever night time treatment I think my face requires which could be my prescribed clindamycin or skyn Iceland oxygenating night cream. I also drink one to glasses of water to help my internal organs do their job while I sleep. When I do this like I should my skin literally glows the next day and I feel lovely......on the days where I just wipe off my makeup only......not soo much!
