If you are like me and tend to bump up your usage of waterproof makeup in the summertime, you may notice that your traditional makeup removing methods just aren’t cutting it. To avoid pulling or tugging on the eye area, it’s important to find the right eye makeup removers that will dissolve your makeup without irritating your eye area.
It’s also best to saturate a cotton pad, and let it sit on your eye for about 30 seconds. That will help dissolve the makeup, and inevitably help you not tug so hard on your lashes or eyelids.
I always like to keep a few makeup removing cloths in my pool bag, in case the dreaded “racoon eye effect” occurs, but a lot of these removers are more tailored for makeup removal at the end of the day.
