Amazing Makeup Removers

If there's nothing you hate more than taking off your makeup, then this is for you. Surely you've tried a makeup remover before that made your eyes sting like crazy. Fret not, friends. You don't need to be punished anymore for your makeup wearing ways. Below are a few favorite makeup removers that we absolutely love. We're also happy to report that they're fantastic for sensitive skin or eyes. Enjoy!

Chanel Demaquillant Yeux Intense, $34
Gentle Biphase Eye Makeup Remover
Get it here.
Chanel's amazing makeup remover can even take off waterproof makeup and that's really saying a lot. You'll enjoy the price point and that it contains soothing rose water extract.

Don't forget to gently shake before applying to your cotton pads.

MAC Cleanse Off Oil, $30
Get it here.
MAC Cosmetics makes a mean cleansing oil that is not only a makeup remover, but also a facial wash for sensitive and dry skin types. MAC also makes it in a travel size which is available through their online website for $10. To properly use the product, apply the oil to your made up face, and start rubbing it in. Next, splash some water on it to take it off. Voila! No more oil. The second this product mixes with water, it becomes a milk.

Also, if you live in a snowy area of the world, you should really try this product as your face wash. It's amazing. Furthermore, if you happen to wear theater stage makeup, longwear lipsticks or even face paint quite regularly, this product can take off anything in its path.

It's quite common in the beauty industry to hear this one, too...

"Oh, it's an oil. I don't want an oil on my face!" 
"Where's the oil-free stuff?!"

Hold on a second right there. In order for something to be waterproof, it needs to fear water. What does that better than something that contains an oil? Oils also do an effective job of breaking down other oils. Period.

You are an avenging Marvel comic meanwhile your waterproof makeup is clearly forming a Justice League on your face. Your epic beauty battle rages on.

Sometimes if you strip your skin of the oil it needs to stay healthy and function, it can have a reaction and produce more oil than there was in the first place. Again, a lot of this depends on your skin type and most times figuring out your skin care still takes several trials and errors. Skin also changes as the seasons change. Wah. Wah. Wah.

Napoleon Perdis Marshmallow Foaming Makeup Remover, $25
Get it here.
Napoleon Perdis makes a foaming makeup remover that is really gentle. You also have the option to either rinse or just tissue it off. It smells like marshmallows and contains allantoin, which leaves the skin really soft.

This foam is also a vendor favorite among myself and my makeup artist counter friends. It doesn't matter what line we're all working for that day. We all love it.

Bertolli EVOO, $9.55
Get it here.
Olive oil! 
Who would of thunk it, right?

Surely you even have some on hand this very second. Try it! I do like to wash my face afterward, though.

Furthermore, you can use olive oil all over your body and hair and helps several skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Olive oil is rich in vitamins as well. The more you can slather yourself with this natural product, the better.

Vincent Longo Olive Oil Fix Tips, $20
Includes 12 Disposable Wands
Get it here.
Speaking of olive oil...

Let's say you accidentally got some dark eyeshadow falloff under your eye right after you did your foundation. Or, maybe you completely missed your eyeball only for your mascara wand to attack you like a crazy raccoon. Avoid raccoons at all costs. That's advice number one. Advice number two is to fix your minor makeup flubs with Vincent Longo's Olive Oil Fix Tips.

Infused with Vitamin E, there is no need to rinse the skin in order to reapply particular makeup products. Yay!

It's not your best makeup look to resemble this miraculous mammal.
Avoid the makeup raccoon at all costs, friends.

Make mistakes! Play! Try different things. In the end, experimenting is the only way to perfect how you like your makeup to look.

No one was ever born a makeup artist yielding a professional tool belt. It's a learned art. Most makeup artists have simply had the opportunity to touch more faces on a consistent basis to perfect their art.

You can do it and I have faith in you.
Can I get a holler for gentle makeup removers?
I think so.
