Showgirl Beauty Tip: Removing Leftover Makeup
My show makeup involves a lot of waterproof black eyeliner.
After the shows, I remove it with eye makeup remover, then I wash my face, then I go to sleep, and sometimes I still manage to wake up with faint black smudges under my eyes in the morning.
I don't love rubbing, scrubbing, or pulling at the delicate skin under my eyes and luckily I don't have to because I developed a great little trick.
After I've washed my face the next morning and the black shadows are still there, I apply my face lotion like normal. Then I a put a tiny dab of the lotion onto a q-tip and gently swipe it under my eyes. All the leftover black stuff magically ends up on the q-tip, and my face looks fresh as a daisy.
When I'm finished, just to make sure I don't get any extra lotion in my eyes, I use a dry q-tip to re-swipe the under eye area one more time.
It's kind of like using the old fashioned cold cream makeup removal method as a spot cleaner.
Happy makeup erasing!
