This post is going to be about how I like to remove my makeup, every day and which products do I use. As I said many times, my eyes have gotten really sensitive and small bits of mascara in my eyes, irritate me a lot. So, as much as I love wearing makeup, I also love removing it as soon as I get home.
The product I use to remove my eye makeup is Bioderma Sensibio H2O Solution Micellaire. Firstly, I use a cotton pad and put a little of Bioderma on it (probably 3 drops). Then I hold it over my lid and slowly drag it to the left and right, to get in between lashes and take off mascara. As Lisa Eldridge always says - be gentle around the eyes :), so I really try to be :). Then I put on some more and repeat this step. I also go on my lower lash line and clean any mascara that has stuck to the skin, while removing.
Then I take a cotton swab and dip it into Bioderma. Which goes perfectly together with the little packaging of Bioderma, because the cotton swab is a perfect size to stuck in the Bioderma hole. Then, I remove any leftover of mascara on the lower lash line and I also go through lashes. I do this as if I'm applying mascara on the lashes, except I'm trying to remove it.
And that is how I finish with my eye makeup removal. I think this removes almost everything, because I hate when small bits of mascara get stuck in my eyes and feel itchy and the eye gets red and so on... I know, I really have sensitive eyes.
For the rest of the makeup I remove as I've learned from Lisa Eldridge. I use Balea Med Ultra Sensitive Reinigungs Milch, which is basically milk and I massage it into my skin. Then I use one cotton pad and rip it in half, so that I get two cotton pads from one - saving is good! :) I hold each half in one hand and go over the face and remove the milk. Then I use the milk again, massaging it into the skin and removing it with water. Like I said, I saw this at Lisa Eldrige's YouTube video and it kinda got stuck with me. I think it really removes all of my makeup.
So fresh and so clean, clean, clean .. :) I remove my makeup as soon as I get home and I have to say that I never go to sleep with makeup - well, at least something I am consistent with ;).
So how do you remove your makeup? Do you remove makeup as soon as you get home, or before going to bed?
