How To Remove Eye Make-Up


The right product used with the right technique is the secret to successful eye makeup removal.

Once you have these down, you’ll no longer dread the process – even at the end of a long day. A good makeup remover is crucial. Finding one that suits your skin and that is effective on the level of makeup you wear can be tricky. There are so many different kinds to choose from, ranging from oil-free liquids to creams to more portable cleansing wipes.



Going to sleep with your makeup on can make your eyes puffy and slowly contribute to premature aging. Your eye makeup will also likely flake off during the night and dirty your pillow cases and sheets. No one needs extra washing to do.

On the other hand, removing your makeup the right way is just as important and removing it all together. Irritating products and rough movements can damage your eyes as much as if you left it on. Always remember to be gentle and use products that don’t irritate your eyes or the skin around your eyes. Don’t worry if there seems to be too many variables. Read on to discover our easy to remember tips on the best way to remove your eye makeup and the best ones to choose.


The first thing to remember when you’re learning how to remove eye makeup is: be gentle. Your eyes are the most delicate area of your face – especially the skin around your eye.
Follow these five simple steps to take when you next remove your eye makeup:

1. Always start with a fresh cotton pad.

2. Dampen it with your chosen eye makeup remover
3. Begin with your eyelids. Press the dampened pad on your closed eyelid for a five seconds. Slowly and gently wipe downwards across the tops of your lashes.

4. Move onto your eyelashes. Using a new clean cotton pad, gently wipe the underside of your lashes. If some makeup is still sticking, use a new cotton pad, fold it in half and press your lashes between the fold. Gently pull the pad away from you.

5. Finish by cleansing and moisturising. Once you’ve removed all your makeup, gently cleanse your face and finish up with a regenerative night cream and rejuvenating eye cream.

If you’re in a rush or on the go, you can gently wipe away your makeup with some handy makeup removal wipes. Pure facial cleansing wipes with Vitamin E & Pro-vitamin B are especially gentle on skin and the delicate eye area.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
