Beauty Discourse: A Small Survey of Makeup Removers

      Happy Halloween! If you are dressing up for Halloween, there is a good chance that if you're going all out then you might be wearing face makeup. I really admire people who go all out and makeup their faces in intricate and complicated makeup, but the skincare freak in me cringes at the thought of putting on costume makeup because let's be honest, costume makeup is probably not that great for your skin. Making sure all your makeup is off is crucial to prevent breakouts! Therefore, it's imperative that you especially take care to take off all your makeup if you're wearing costume makeup for Halloween!

      Hands down, the best heavy duty makeup removers are cleansing oils. I recommend starting off with a cleansing oil as the first step of removing your remake. Why? Because they remove all of your makeup with only 2-3 full pumps - waterproof mascara included. I'm currently using the Shu Uemura Premium Beauty Oil which is geared towards sensitive skin. A full review of it will come soon, but this is probably holy grail status for those of you with dry skin. I also have tried the DHC Cleansing Oil which is budget friendly but effective. Following up with a cleansing oil, I like to use a cleansing water like Bioderma or the Beauty Water by Son and Park. They're gentle but they wipe away all the residue that may be left over from the cleansing oil. My other favorite makeup removers although not as hard working as cleansing oils, are the makeup wipes by Boots, and the Milky Jelly Cleanser by Glossier. The Milky Jelly Cleanser while great for dry skin, does leave makeup residue which needs to be cleaned up by either a second cleanser or a micellar water. Makeup wipes in general shouldn't be used as your primary makeup remover, but it's a great followup product that can be substitute for a micellar water if you don't have one handy.
