How to remove your eye makeup 5 different ways

It’s one thing to nail your winged eyeliner, but quite another to remove it quickly and easily.

Depending on the products you’ve used, your makeup can stick like superglue to your lids – which means your regular face cleanser won’t cut it.

Here are five different ways to remove your eye makeup which will melt away your stubborn eyeliner and protect against panda eyes, without aggravating your delicate eye area

#1 Eye make-up remover

An oldie but a goodie, a classic eye make-up remover is designed to (you guessed it) remove your eye make-up effortlessly every time. The best thing about it is that it’s formulated especially for the eye area, which means it’s extra gentle and non-irritating.

#2 Cleansing stick

Occasionally, there just isn’t time for a thorough facial cleanse – particularly after a big night out, when you’re likely to be wearing more eye make-up than usual! A cleansing stick is the perfect solution, as it’s small enough to pop in your clutch and whip out when the time calls. The solid stick formula makes it easy to reach the contours of your eye, and also allows for fast and easy touch-ups.

#3 Eye make-up remover pads

Another great option for when you’re on the go, eye make-up remover pads come pre-saturated with make-up remover formula for a crafty two-in-one cleansing maneuver. For best results, press the pad to your closed eyelid for about 10 seconds to help loosen the make-up, before carefully wiping it away. Too easy!

#5 Coconut oil or olive oil

Natural beauties swear by this DIY make-up removal method, and with good reason. Simply rub a small amount of oil gently over your lids in small, circular motions to loosen your make-up. All you need is a warm washcloth to wipe away the residue and voila: Moisturised, make-up-free eyes!
