For a clean sweep!

Every makeup look you wear has one thing in common—at the end of the day, you have to remove it. Below, we share our methods of choice for reviving that clean slate:

1. Everyday makeup

Use: Cleansing milk

With or without water, this two-way remover swings both ways to dissolve dirt, makeup, and even sunscreen without drying skin or leaving it feeling greasy. Suitable for all skin types, it’s no wonder why it’s the top choice of facialists for cleansing skin prior to treatment.

2. Dark eyes, dark lips

Use: Dual-phase remover

Who says oil and water can’t mix? This part oil, part water solution activates when shaken and wipes off even the most tenacious eye and lip makeup. The mixture works by using oil to melt away waterproof makeup, while water, enriched with minerals and conditioning properties, leaves skin refreshed.

3. Long-wearing makeup

Use: Cleansing oil

Although budge-proof makeup and long, late nights out seem like a good idea, removing it with a buzz during the wee hours of the morning can be quite a pain. This is what makes oil cleansers the ideal one-stop, all-type solvent that lifts away every trace of even the thickest makeup without having to rub hard.

4. Stains

Use: Cleansing wipes

The leaders of the pack—handy and versatile, these cloths make the best travel companions for dislodging light but stubborn stains on the lids, lips, and cheeks, and leave skin refreshed with their nourishing properties.
