30 Tips To Show-Stopping MakeUp: Tip 4 - Make Up? What Make Up?

post signature So sorry I haven't blogged in a while, I've been ill and had to work through it 11 hours a day so not had much time to blog :( This post is about makeup removal! The 4th instalment of my 30 Tips posts.

To be honest, I'm rather bored of having to apply makeup every morning, and wish I had nice enough skin naturally to go out without any on! But alas.. too many late nights and long days at work leave me too tired to take my mask off. I'm going to start taking my own advice from now on as my skin is never usually this bad. Here's a useful tip on how to remove your makeup....

A good make up remover is priceless! Have you been noticing larger pores and an increase in imperfections? Ever thought that you're not removing your make up properly? Leaving makeup on your face acts as a barrier and stops your skin from breathing whilst you sleep! Generally overnight is when your skin repairs itself. If a wall of foundation is in the way, it seeps into your pores and harvests bacteria, causing spots and infections. (mm yum)
 If you use waterproof eye make up, an oil based remover is best. Nivea Double Effects MakeUp Remover has become essential to my daily routine. Followed by Clinique Cleanser and Toner, my skin has never felt so clean! You’ll notice a good make up remover if your make up practically melts off without having to rub. Your skin will reward you!

Make a leap and invest in one of the Clinique 3-Step Skincare Routine as well as Pond's Cold Cream. Used by hundreds of women, including celebrities and even royalty, it cleanses your skin and tightens your pores! Give these products a try and see for yourself how your skin looks after a couple of weeks!

I use four different removers; Nivea's 2 in 1 Cleanser and Toner, Nivea's Double Effects Makeup Remover, Pond's Cold Cream and Clinique's take the day off. Depending on how much time I have, I try to use the Double Effects and then a cream based cleanser to really clean my skin. As I wear a 48 Hour Eyeliner, normal makeup remover just doesn't work. It simply just shifts the eyeliner across my eyelid. An Oil based remover such as the Double Effects one lifts it off without rubbing, however does make my skin feel oily and greasy afterwards, so a cream cleanser gets rid of that.
Cold cream is a thicker cream that also helps moisturise the skin. Take a look at my review here: Pond's Cold Cream

What remover do you use?
Keep a look out for the 5th tip!
