6 Tricks to Easily Remove Your Makeup

With all the various rules in the beauty world, there’s one rule that we’re told to never ever break – removing any trace of makeup before going to bed. While you may think that it’s alright to leave your shadows on even for just a night, failing to remove your makeup will only cause you a lot of problems other than a product pile-up on your pillows. To help you, we’ve rounded up some tricks that will help you in removing your makeup the right way.


1.       Using makeup remover wipes are not enough.

Although it may seem like using makeup remover wipes is the easiest way to remove any makeup traces, they actually don’t do the job completely. They only remove the product that’s on your skin’s surface, which isn’t good when it comes to makeup removal. If you’re still planning to use these wipes, use them as the first step to remove most of your makeup, then completely remove the makeup using your favourite cleanser.

2.       Keep your hair firmly tied up before removing your makeup.

Putting your hair into a ponytail or a bun is actually essential in removing your makeup. Tying your hair up will expose your hairline, which you should thoroughly clean since most makeup residue tend to build up in the said area.

3.       Make sure to always perform a double-cleanse.

When cleansing your face off any makeup, doing a double-cleanse is the way to go. Your first wash will remove most of the makeup, while the second round will be meant to properly clean your skin. Also, use your second cleanse to massage your face to keep your complexion glowing and healthy.


4.       Start cleansing with your lips.

An effective makeup removal process is done in steps and this starts with cleansing your lips. Whether you’re sporting a bright or nude shade, neither will look good when they’re smeared across your face. So avoid any future messes, by removing your lip colour first.

5.       Remove your eye makeup next.

The most important thing that you should remember in removing your eye shadow is that the skin around your eyes are very delicate and thin, which is why you should avoid rubbing your lids and clean it gently instead. To get a good cleanse, soak a cotton pad with an eye makeup remover and gently pat in onto your eyes. This will loosen up your eye makeup, making it easier for you to softly swipe any residue away.

6.       Try using steam to remove your makeup.

Take your makeup removal process a step further by using some steam. Soak a washcloth in hot water, let it cool for a couple of minutes, and then place it over face. The steam in the washcloth will help in opening up your pores and in removing makeup residues on your skin.

Regardless if you are too tired to change your clothes, let alone wash your face before going to bed, properly removing your makeup at night will surely give you a healthy, glowing skin.
