How to remove your makeup

Removing your make up is the first step to having clear and beautiful skin. 

It is absolutely essential that you remove your makeup every night.  I love using the good old petroleum jelly to clean my eye makeup. I still do so however, it could cause stys and other problems if not cleaned properly.

You can use baby oil, olive oil and baby wipes they work just as well.  However, different skin types have different needs.

Makeup removal has come a long way. Beauty Store shelves are loaded with makeup remover solutions, that help remove water proof foundation, eyeliner and even mascara: just like that. So you will have to see what suits you best.

The best way to begin cleaning your face, is by taking a pump or two of cleanser and applying it gently around your face and eyes, in circular motions. Take a soft wash cloth and dip it in hot water, ring it and place it over your face. This feels like a spa treatment and the warmth loosens up all the makeup.  Next wipe your face and eyes gently and you will see all your makeup on the towel.

 Don’t end with this!!

Wash your face with a liquid face wash cleanser, pat dry and follow up with a moisturiser.



Avoid sharing your makeup and brushes with anyone and clean your brushes with a brush cleanser. I use Mac’s Brush cleanser and it is wonderful.

Review on Makeup

Happy owning this stuff and wanting a lot more.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush from ULTA – USA. This dual – fiber brush, and delivers high-definition results with all types of make up: What I liked best is that these synthetic bristles are 100% cruelty-free. I love the hold of the brush, when I am buffing in the foundation. The bristles are dense and not scanty like other brands…. I sometimes even use it as my Blush brush to put the cheek colour in place


Inglot Eye makeup Base

A nude colour base – it is Paraben free and not tested on animals & easy to carry around as it does not cream around or leak out of the pot. It blends well over the eyelid and does not crease at all and goes a long way in holding your eye shadow in place.

Very pocket friendly too.

Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in, “Soft and Gentle”.

I waited almost 8 months to get hold of this pretty baby. I did not want to go in for any other shade, as I loved the look of this – as a highlighter. Amazing  product for life. Looks delicious and am always tempted to eat it.
