If theres any time of day that I’m especially grateful to be single, it would have to be at bedtime when I take my makeup off. And not for the reason you’re thinking. I don’t turn into a troll. Unless you’re thinking of one of those super cute dolls with the rainbow hair and jewel on their belly. I’ll totally take that.
No. Its because any man would be appalled by how many cotton balls it takes to get my eye makeup off. I swear I really don’t even wear that much! Its only because my eyeliner is waterproof so its extra hard to take off; however, one would think Gene Simmons took over my bathroom after a KISS concert. And it never fails that no matter how many times I wipe if off, when I wake up I’m still going to have makeup under my eyes! Before you say I should think about not wearing so much makeup, I know I’m not the only one with this problem because I’ve had this same conversation with pretty much every one of my girlfriends. If you wear waterproof eyeliner (which I totally recommend), its going to take forever to get off!
Over the years I feel like I have tried every kind of eye makeup remover. Some I’ve loved. Some I’ve hated. But its so important to start with a clean face and eye every time you put on your makeup for so many reasons. First of them obviously being clear skin because that means less makeup! So the moral of the story is get a really good eye makeup remover and cotton balls in bulk.
And hide the evidence immediately. 🙂
Let me know if there are any I need to try or if you have any tricks!
