Once And For All, Here's How To Take Off Eyeliner Without Scrubbing Your Eyelids

It’s no secret that eyeliner is  one of the hardest makeup essentials to remove, especially with it being so close to the eye. And if you’ve found a good, long-wear brand that’s actually waterproof, then regular soap and water probably aren’t helping to speed up your nighttime removal routine. So it may be time to try out some other methods if you’re tired of scrubbing your eyelids raw. Here are a few tried and true ways to get rid of the eyeliner without all of the hassle.

1.Invest in eye makeup cleansing water and wipes. If you break out the eyeliner every morning before work, then it may not be a bad idea to get some cleansing water or wipes that are specifically formulated to remove eyeliner. They may be an extra addition to your budget, but they work. These products are also stronger than normal soap, so make sure to moisturize after using.

2.Break out the good old petroleum jelly. As great as it is for removing makeup like lipstick, petroleum jelly works for eyeliner too! All you have to do is coat the area with a q-tip. Let the petroleum jelly sit for a few minutes and gently wipe it away with the clean end of the q-tip. Then, rinse your face with water.

3.Try baby oil and shampoo. You’ve probably heard of this old trick. For waterproof eyeliner, dab a bit of baby oil on the eye. Let it soak in for a minute, then apply a small amount of baby shampoo. Wash your face thoroughly so that you don’t get any oil in your eye. And that should do the trick.
