Lipstick is one of my absolute favorite makeup products. Red lipstick, in particular. But if you’re wearing a long-lasting color or using a lip stain, it can be really difficult to get that color off. And even if you remove most of it, you’re still left with a hint of it which can get all over your white towels when you dry your face off after cleansing. Totally happens to me like every time.
Well, a few lipstick-stained towels later, and I’ve finally figured out just how to get all my lipstick off. Seriously, all of it. Not even a stitch left over!
Click through below for your foolproof guide to removing your lipstick!
You Need: Aquaphor or Vaseline
Obviously, Aquaphor is my go-to. Don't use a makeup remover for this, trust me.
You Need: Cotton Rounds
Not cotton balls. Those are too fuzzy. Cotton squares would also work.
You Need: A Toothbrush
Not the one you use every day to brush your teeth.
This Is Long-Lasting Lipstick
This is a serious wear lipstick. Like it doesn't come off.
Slather On Some Aquaphor/Vaseline
Seriously, get gross with it. Just make a nice, thick layer over your lip color.
Wait 5 Minutes
I know 5 minutes is a long time to sit around, but play a level of Candy Crush Saga or study some flashcards while you wait.
Press Down Cotton Round
I say press it down because you don't want the Aquaphor to go everywhere. So press it down on your lips and let it kind of absorb. Then, slide it off your lips.
If your lip color is super dark, you may have to repeat this process one more time. Fortunately, this pink color isn't too dark.
Brush It Off
You might be left with a tint from your lipstick and maybe some dry, colored flakes. This is where the toothbrush comes in. Wet the toothbrush and gently brush in circular motions on your lips. This will remove the leftover color and exfoliate at the same time.
And you're all set! No lip color here.
