Full-coverage foundations, budge-proof liners, long-wearing lipsticks, over the top lashes, shimmery shadows, and even glitter (for when you want to really show off your skills, think festival season or Halloween) – tenacious makeup can make you look amazing from dawn to dusk, but requires more than a quick rinse-off before you go to bed. Here's how to break it down:
Step One: Tackle The Toughest Stuff.
Start by removing stubborn eye makeup and bold, statement red lips first. To reduce the amount of tugging on your skin, saturate a cotton ball with a liquid makeup remover, like Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips, which also has added skin-brightening benefits for a post-rinse-off glow. Gently press it over your eyes or lips for about ten seconds. This gives the remover enough time to break down even the most intense makeup, so all you have to do is gently sweep it away.
