Take it off... makeup that is! (Our favourite makeup removers)

So everyone loves playing around with makeup, you know blending in that eyeshadow like it's cardio, getting that winged eyeliner to perfection and playing the wait game while baking. So when it comes to removing it all after the days done, that's a whole other battle.

I personally HATE removing makeup. I love the soft, clean feeling afterwards but the actual process of removing makeup is such a chore. You know making sure to get every last bit of foundation off, and making sure there's no eyeliner left behind. My actual worst is removing mascara... not fun. Okay so I'm sure a lot of you agree with me and have your own methods of removing makeup. But if you are looking for something new and want to up your makeup removal game, you're in luck!

Here's my personal tried and tested, and favourite methods of getting that makeup off in a cinch.

Cinema Secrets - Break it Down Waterproof Makeup Remover

This is amazing! It not only works for the blackest eyeliner you've got, but if you mix a bit with some dish soap, you've got yourself an amazing makeup brush cleaner. I usually put a bit on a cotton pad and go to work on my makeup. It manages to get even the most darkest eyeliner off and works great on mascara too. 

Biotherm - Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

This was my all time favourite makeup remover forever! But now I have to admit... there's someone else... I'll get into my holy grail makeup remover next, but this is still amazing at removing makeup. BUT yes you do have to use a cotton pad to get every bit of makeup off. It does an amazing job, is great for sensitive skin and like Cinema Secrets makeup remover, this is also great for cleaning your makeup brushes by adding a bit of dish soap and water.

The Estee Edit (By: Estee Lauder) - Dissolve the Drama 2-in-1 Makeup Remover + Cleanser

THIS. IS. AMAZEBALLS. I'm seriously in love with this makeup remover right now! I got this as a sample in a recent Sephora order and one day with a face full of makeup... I thought what the heck let's see if it can match my Biotherm makeup remover. Well... let me tell you. Wow! I love this remover and the best part is you don't need cotton pads. Or anything for that matter! I took this liquid-y magic in my hands and went to town and the makeup just came off instantly. Not only is this a makeup remover but it's also a cleanser! I do recommend using your cleanser afterwards though to get that extra clean feeling, but my skin felt great using it on it's own as well. This is definitely my all time favourite makeup remover at the moment. If you're looking for a new product to try, get this! You will definitely fall in love. 

Watch out for my next post, where I go into the best holiday bundles by various makeup brands and which ones are really worth the $$$.  Have a great weekend, and Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans!
