The Quickest Way To Effectively Remove Makeup

By  | 

If makeup removal is becoming hectic this holiday season, it’s time to rethink your makeup removal routine. What if I told you, there’s a two-step makeup removal routine that won’t take you more than 5 minutes? Plus, it won’t cause a mess.

All you need is cotton and two miracle products.

This routine is not only effective, but it won’t tug at your skin. Neither will it over-dry your skin. So, here goes.

Step 1

Use micellar water on a cotton pad to dab and swipe off any makeup. You don’t have to tug or pull too hard. Micellar water does the trick. Remember, cotton pads will work way better than cotton balls. You may use 3 to 4 cotton pads to cover your entire face and neck. In case you’re wearing lashes, you’ll want to remove them first.

Step 2

Next, use a waterproof micellar water and 3 to 4 cotton pads to remove eye makeup. Hold the wet cotton pad against your lids for about 3 to 4 seconds, and then swipe. Everything will loosen up in one go. And then, go over with another cotton pad to remove any residue. Use one last cotton pad with the waterproof formula all over your face again for eye residue that may have spread, or any leftover product.

That’s it! That cleanses your entire face in two steps. If you’re too tired to do more, you can head to the gym or pass out just like that. Just avoid it on a daily basis because you may want to complete your entire skincare routine and wear moisturiser to bed.
