Foolproof ways to remove waterproof makeup

Waterproof makeup is great for days when you don’t have time for touch-ups or when it’s raining outside. The only downside of using waterproof mascara and other waterproof makeup products is the hassle of taking it off. I mean, how do you get rid of that waterproof mascara without losing a few lashes?

Every woman who has ever used waterproof makeup would tell you what a struggle it is to take it off. But don’t give up on using waterproof makeup products just yet. We are going to tell you how to easily remove it without compromising on your sanity. So, the next time you’re struggling with a lip stain that won’t budge or mascara that wants to stay forever, use these tips:


Warm water


The easiest and simplest way to get rid of your waterproof makeup is by using warm water. Soak a washcloth in warm water and place it on that stubborn mascara, this will loosen up the product and help remove it easily.


Micellar water


Whether you are a makeup junkie or noob, having micellar water in your skincare kit is an absolute essential. The tiny micelles easily break down the most stubborn makeup product into small particles before lifting them off your skin. Hold the Ponds Vitamin Micellar Water Hydrating Aloe Vera over closed eyes for a few seconds and then gently swipe to remove.




Olive oil We’ve already told you about the many benefits of using olive oil in your skincare routine. Remove that matte lipstick and waterproof eye makeup in a tick by massaging your face with a small amount of olive oil first. You can also use it to take off your falsies! However, if you have oily skin, you might want to replace it with coconut oil as it does not clog pores.





Most makeup experts will recommend using a bi-phased cleanser because it has both water and oil, thereby ensuring all your makeup comes off with ease. The Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased Make-up Remover is a lightweight, dermatologically tested formula that easily removes makeup and leaves the skin feeling fresh and hydrated.




Cleansing milk Cleansing milks are a gentle way of removing stubborn makeup. They are suitable for dry and sensitive skin types and do leave your skin feeling dry. Dab on a quarter-sized amount of the Lakme Deep Cleanser Cleansing Milk and gently rub all over face and neck. Grab a damp, warm washcloth and remove every trace of makeup from your face.
