Make up Removal PadsAndrea EyeQ's Eye Make-Up Remover Pads, Ultra Quick

Andrea Eye’s waterproof removal pads- available at most drugstores

If you have ever worn waterproof make up, you know it can be a B**** to remove.  Andrea’s Eye’s for waterproof make up, will gently remove any products, even the most difficult.  They’re cost-effective and work.  It’s important when you wear waterproof products… you have the proper remover.  Most of them contain a Vinyl or Silicone base and don’t come off with just soap and water. You need the right oil to break them down.  You never want to try to scrub to them off, your skin certainly wont be happy!

Also, try not to wear waterproof all the time.  It keeps the skin from breathing and with continued use can clog your pores, but for a day at the beach or out on the water, it’s always your best bet!

So yes, you have options and no matter what the temperature may be, you’ll look great day or night when you incorporate any of these long-lasting durable product tips into your summer make up routine. Play, have fun, try new things you may even come up with something unique!

Of course there is always the option of a permanent cosmetic enhancement that will allow you to banish those pencils for good! Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions 604 639 3609 about any of our permanent procedure. We are always happy to share and remember your worth it!!
