How To Remove Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof mascara can be a life saver when you get caught in the rain or chilling by the pool but it can be a hassle to remove.


The key here is to saturate the lashes with your product of choice FIRST before beginning to rub. This allows the product to break down the mascara and make it much easier to rub off.

The main idea is to thoroughly soak your lashes with your product of choice before trying to wipe it away. Waterproof mascara is (by name) created to resist being washed off. You need to break down the product in order to remove it. This can be done by soaking a cotton pad or makeup wipe in Oil, Micellar Water or Makeup Remover.

After breaking down the mascara with your weapon of choice, gently wipe your eyes from the base of the lashes on both top and bottom. Sometimes stubborn pieces can stick between your lashes so you'll need to take a Q-Tip, dipped in your product of choice, and run a clean end of the cotton to your lash line to make sure there isn't any trace of mascara left.
