One thing that I absolutely hate when I'm doing my makeup, is when a smudge of eye liner, mascara, or eye shadow gets anywhere other than where they're supposed to go in the first place... and then its a mission to take it off.
So I came up with a solution, and you should use it to. Its super simple, and it works like magic.
I use CVS age defying towelettes to take off my eye make up. $4.99
They are moist and do the trick.
Any towelette will do, take one out
...and let it dry over night.
in the AM you will have a dry towelette that works as a magic eraser for those everyday slip-ups. I use one towelette for my make up mistakes, and it lasts me a week.
(note, only use these towelettes, or any towelette to take off eye makeup, not face make up. They are huge pore cloggers.)
Want the dewy effect after putting on foundation?
Run your make up sponge under the water before you apply your make up, ring it out completely.
Extra dry skin, and afraid of breaking out in search of a cure?
Good Ol' Vaseline.
Most dermatologists say that this is a pore clogger, but they are indeed wrong.
I even had several dermatologists at Kaiser tell me that they couldn't be absolutely sure that it is.
The amazing acne and skin specialists at Face Reality have done their research and have found this to be the best cure for dry facial skin. And my does it work! take a Q-tip or a dab on your finger and apply at night to your dry areas.
Some of my absolute needs when it comes to my make up routine are as follows:
Fabulash Mascara by Revlon. $5.99 at Target. Were going on eight years being together.
She has never failed me.
Infallible Advanced Never Fail Foundation by L'Oreal
$12.99 at Target
Approved by my skin specialist to not have any pore cloggers.
Eyeliner: Unstoppable by Maybelline
$9.99 at Target
Great on the bottom eye line for long lasting results..
If used on top, use a primer so that your eye lids don't get moist and run the eyeliner.
