How to Remove Waterproof Eye Makeup Without Makeup Wipes
STEP 1: An oil-based cleanser or makeup remover can help break down long-wear and waterproof makeup like mascara or eyeliner. As an alternative to an oil-based cleanser, you can also use a micellar water, which can effectively remove long-wearing makeup. Start by saturating a cotton pad with a product like the cult-fave Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover or the Garnier Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover.
STEP 2: Use gentle pressure to hold the pad against your eye for about 10 seconds to help dissolve the makeup.
STEP 3: Finish by washing your face with a cleanser. This will help get rid of any lingering traces of makeup or residue. Rinse well and pat your face dry.
How to Remove False Lashes Without Makeup Wipes
STEP 1: Massage a small amount of gentle eye makeup remover onto the base of your false lash strip to loosen the glue.
STEP 2: Start at the outer corner and carefully peel back the false lash, making sure none of your real lashes are stuck to the strip.
STEP 3: If you’re planning on using the lashes again, reshape your false lashes and put them back into the case they came in.
How to Remove Long-Lasting Lipstick Without Makeup Wipes
STEP 1: Start by washing your face with an oil-based makeup remover and use a cloth to blot away any oil or residue.
STEP 2: If the oil-based makeup remover doesn’t remove the lipstick completely, apply a layer of petroleum jelly to your lips and let it sit for three minutes.
STEP 3: Dampen a washcloth in warm water and wipe away the petroleum jelly (which will remove your lipstick as well).
STEP 4: Rinse and dry your lips. Finish by applying a moisturizing lip balm.
