One of my favorite parts about using coconut oil as a makeup remover is how easy it is to touch up small bits of eye makeup that I messed up on or that have fallen throughout the day. When I’m in school I don’t have time between classes, work, and nights out to take the time to completely wash my face and start my makeup over from scratch. This simple trick lets me touch up my makeup in one step that takes about 5 seconds!
As you can see, after a full day of work my eye makeup has begun to fall and smear onto my bottom lid, nearly creating an undesirable ‘raccoon’ look.
To do this:
1. Lightly swirl a Q-tip or cotton ball (or your finger works fine as well!) over the top of coconut oil until lightly coated.
2. Lightly sweep on the area you want removed.
3. Follow by wiping the area clean with your finger or a towel.
This is a super simple and easy procedure to touch up your makeup after work before going out with friends without having to wash it all off and start from scratch.
What’s your favorite time saving method for getting ready?
Full disclosure: I do work for a company that produces organic coconut oil and organic coconut oil based skin care products. However, I wanted this post to be informative to my readers and not selling a specific product so I have made sure to not include any brand names to avoid influencing you toward a specific brand. If you are interested in purchasing coconut oil all I recommend is that you get one that is unrefined, cold pressed, and 100% USDA certified organic. All opinions in this article are 100% my own and I have not been compensated for creating this post at all.
