Instead of emptying your pockets on pricey makeup removers, you can try using this multi-purpose product.....*drum roll*.....COCONUT OIL!!!!
Coconut oil is usually my answer to everything like Windex is to Gus in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Seriously, it's amazing. Using coconut oil as a makeup remover has removed more makeup off my skin than any other makeup remover I have bought in the past and it's so cheap! It leaves my skin smooth, soft, and moisturized and it even smells nice. I've had anywhere from a little bit of makeup on to really stubborn waterproof makeup on and coconut oil removed it all in less than a minute!
This tutorial is super simple and you only need a few things!
For this post, I purposely wore a lot of makeup to prove how well this works. In the photo below, I have on concealer, liquid foundation, brow pomade, brow gel, waterproof liquid eyeliner, waterproof mascara, lip stain, and I even contoured/highlighted my face and neck.
Side note: my makeup looked heavier in person than it does in the photo.
To get started, grab a bit of coconut oil and rub it between your hands to melt it.
Apply it on your skin wherever you have makeup to be removed. Gently massage it well and watch the makeup start to slide off. Remember to be gentle around sensitive areas, like your eyes. Tugging on your skin will stretch and cause lines and sagging.
Look, it's melting off and I look stupid.
Dampen your wash cloth and gently start wiping away the makeup and oil.
Off my face and on the washcloth!
Continue wiping away and rinsing off the washcloth until your skin is clean.
Tadaaa! Fresh soft clean skin!
If you wish, you may use a facial cleanser afterward, or just follow it by
your usual skin care routine (toner, serum, moisturizer).
Damn, coconut oil! Back at it again with those results!
