Panda eyes begone – Lisa Eldridge’s make-up removal tutorial

Have you seen Lisa Eldridge’s make-up how-to videos? I suggest you do. This sought after make-up artist makes the most useful tutorial videos on every subject from how to do a quick smoky eye to how to cover up acne (actually that one is pretty genius). The reason I Iove Eldridge is that she is approachable, articulate and thorough. All her tools and products are credited – even the nail polish that gets a cameo appearance. And she makes everything look easily achievable without taking hours.

My favourite tutorial is how to take your make-up off. I love Eldridge’s eye make-up removal process which goes like this:
1) Split a cotton wool pad in half so you have two thin pads.
2) Halve one of these so you have two half-moons.
3) Generously soak each one with eye make-up remover and place under the lower lashes (actually best to do this one at a time).
4) Soak another cotton wool pad, place over the eyelid and gently hold and press on it so the remover can do its work – no rubbing required.
5) Keep gently pressing the pad on the lid, especially around the eyelashes for a minute or so (this will also remove false lashes).
6) When you ease off the pad, the eye area will be completely clean. Bonus: No itching, no irritation. I’ve tried it, it’s miraculous!

And to make your make-up removal feel more of a pampering, less of a chore, how about a pack of Chanel make up remover pads? At $20 (from here) they’re possibly the most affodable luxury skincare item you’ll ever buy (lordy, did I really just say that?).

    Hahahaha! Those Chanel pads are the funniest thing ever. They should make feminine protection products with the little C's too.

    I love Lisa's videos. She's not afraid to just take off all the make up and start afresh, whereas so many other beauty videos will just show you a bare eyelid, and not their whole face!

    Thanks for sharing!
