DIY eye makeup remover for stubborn, waterproof makeup

As much as we love makeup and creating different looks, we hate the part where we have to get rid of it at the end of the day. You would agree with us on this one, wouldn’t you? And it’s not just about being lazy or tired but the fact that certain products are so stubborn that it takes a lifetime to get rid of them!

Eye makeup, especially the waterproof type, is difficult to remove. Since it is formulated to stay put for a long time, your regular makeup remover won’t be able to effectively remove every trace of it. And we don’t want eye infections from something we love so much, right? So here’s an easy and effective DIY eye makeup remover that will do the trick.
