One thing that is super important when dealing with makeup is taking it off. Not taking your makeup off at the end of each day can do serious damage to your skin. However, just a swipe of a cloth won’t pull everything off of your face as it’s more than likely been sitting in your poors for hours. Here are the five steps that I do to take off all of my makeup at the end of the day.
Maybelline Clean Express Eye Makeup Remover || $4.99 – The first thing that I do is apply some Eye Makeup Remover to a cotton pad and swipe this all over my eyes. There are two things that I look for in an eye makeup remover, first it MUST be oil-free. Having an oil-free eye makeup remover is so important because otherwise you’re face will feel like an oil slick. Secondly, it must be able to remove waterproof mascara. I HATE trying to get waterproof mascara off and having to pull and tug over the delicate skin around my eyes. Maybelline’s Clean Express Eye Makeup Remover is both oil-free and able to pull waterproof makeup off gently.
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes || $6.99 – $8.99 – The next thing that I do is to pull off as much of my face makeup as possible. To do this I use a makeup remover wipe. I try to keep it to just one makeup remover wipe because I know that I have more steps coming up. I use these wipes all over my face to essentially pull off all that setting powder and foundation.
ulep Bare Faced Cleaning Oil || $28.00 – Inevitably there will be makeup left behind on both my eyes, eyebrows, and face so my next step is to bring in a cleansing oil. I currently am using the Julep Bare Faced Cleaning Oil because I love the citrus smell that it has, the fact that it puts nutrients back in my skin, and it is gentle enough to use over my eyes as well.
Philosophy Purity Made Simple Facial Cleanser || $10.00 – $42.00 – For deep pore cleaning I use Philosophy Purity Made Simple Facial Cleanser. This cleanser is great if you are using just your hands or if you are using a facial tool like a Clarisonic. This really cleans deep pulling a lot of that dirt out of my pores.
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré || $16.00 – $28.00 – To finish up I put moisture back in my skin with a moisturizer. My current favorite is Embryolisse Moisturizer because it puts tons of moisture back in my skin without feeling heavy or oily.
