Transcript:How to Remove Eye MakeupHi, I'm Mattie Sproul, here for About.com, and today I'm going to be showing you how to remove eye makeup.
Finding the right products can be really tricky because you want to find mild products for the delicate skin around your eyes, but it also has to be able to thoroughly remove any makeup you've applied.
Try Cosmetics Products to Remove Eye MakeupHere are a few of the best ways to remove eye makeup. It may cost a little extra, but the best products are going to come from the cosmetics counter. Clinique and Lancome offer liquid- and cream-based eye makeup removers that are both gentle and effective.
To remove your eye makeup using one of these products, apply a small dab of the liquid or cream to a cotton pad. Hold the pad to your eyelid, particularly focusing on your eyelashes, for a couple of minutes. Lightly wipe away your makeup, replacing the cotton pads as they become soiled. Continue wiping your eyes until all makeup is removed and the pad comes away clean.
Using Petroleum Jelly to Remove Eye Makeup Is Less CostlyA cost-effective and old-fashioned way to remove eye makeup is using petroleum jelly, such as Vaseline. Take a small dab of petroleum jelly and rub it along your lash line with your eye closed. Next, soak a wash cloth in warm water and use it to gently rub the petroleum jelly on your lashes and eyelid.
Continue rinsing the wash cloth and rubbing your lashes and eyelids until all traces of the make up are gone. Be sure to wash your face with a cleanser and cool water to remove any sheen the petroleum jelly has left around your eyes.
Baby Oil or Olive Oil Can Remove Eye Makeup AlsoIf you don't like the feel of petroleum jelly, and can't afford the cost of a high-end makeup remover, try using a little olive oil or baby oil. Soak a cotton ball with the oil and gently rub it on your lashes and eye lid. Continue to wipe at your eyes, replacing the cotton balls as they become soiled, until all traces of makeup have vanished. Again, when you've finished removing your eye makeup, wash your face with a cleanser and cool water to remove any oil left around your eye.
Take the time to take care of your eyes, and invest in any eye makeup removers that are right for you. Everyone's preferences are different, but proper removal of eye makeup is a necessity that we all share.
