Nonoily makeup remover also lifts lipstick off completely and can be used to clean your lip brush. It has also helped me avert disaster more than once by lifting makeup stains from my clothing.
After taking off eye makeup and lip color, use cleansing cream or gel to remove all foundation, concealer, and powder. If you have bangs or if your hair falls into your face, use a headband or an elastic to pull back your hair so that you are sure to clean your face at the hairline.
Tip: After washing face, dip a Q-tip into nonoily remover and run it gently over your eyelashes to remove any residual mascara.
If you are in theater and wear oil-based makeup for performancesâ€”or if you simply prefer a heavy baseâ€”good old-fashioned cold cream is the best remover. (Itâ€™s also a good thing to keep around the house for removing the kidsâ€™ makeup at Halloween!)
