Olive oil as makeup remover

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Did you know that olive oil is a very effective eye makeup remover? I usually don't use a lot of heavy makeup on a daily basis, but when I do, I go all out! I find eyeliners and mascara the most difficult makeups to get rid of. Even with eye makeup remover, it may take some rubbing and tugging. My new favorite thing is olive oil! I put it in a small bottle and leave it in the bathroom for convenience. After I wash my face, all I do is put a little bit of olive oil ( any olive oil will do) on a cotton ball and press it against my eyelids for a few seconds, then rub it off. All the makeup comes off so easily! It doesn't sting my eye like some eye makeup removers do. Also, just anecdotally, I feel like my eyelashes look longer and healthier as I use olive oil. That's always a bonus!
