How To Remove Eye Makeup, The Right Way


Getting rid of stubborn eye makeup can be frustrating—especially when dealing with waterproof formulas. Your first inclination may be to tug at the skin when attempting to remove makeup, but this consistent tugging can lead to premature wrinkling. So what is the proper way to remove eye makeup?

Here’s how professional estheticians are trained to remove eye makeup: soak a cotton ball or pad with the eye makeup remover of your choice and gently press on the eyelids and lashes for a moment. Let the makeup remover sit there, dissolving your eye makeup and making it easier to remove. When you’re ready, gently wipe in a downward motion, repeating carefully as necessary. A careful upward motion along the lower lash line will remove any traces of makeup lingering there.

Never tug or pull at the eye area. The skin in this area is some of the thinnest skin on your body and is usually the first area to show signs of aging.
