Beauty Fix: The trick to removing waterproof mascara, how to style a non-sporty ponytail and the best fragrance for fall
What’s the best way to remove waterproof mascara?
An excellent question, and anyone who has ever tried to remove waterproof mascara will know that the answer is not by using water and a basic cleanser! Waterproof mascara is comprised of ingredients that do not mix with or dissolve in water, but rather form a film to coat and emphasize each lash. Trying to remove the impermeable mascara with your usual facial cleanser will probably be an effort that doesn’t remove the mascara from lashes entirely and improper removal of waterproof mascara is a no-no because it can lead to lash loss. What you need in order to break down the polymer film is a dual-phase eye makeup remover, such as Lancôme Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye makeup remover ($35, sephora.com). It contains two fluids: a lipid fluid and a treatment water. When shaken up, applied to a cotton round and pressed onto the lashes, the two fluids work to simultaneously break down the mascara, remove it from lashes and treat the skin with emollients to prevent drying out the lashes and delicate eye area.
