Best Waterproof Eye Makeup Removers


While we invest so much time in picking and choosing make up, we forget to do the same when it comes to the make up remover. Do you always remove makeup before turning in for the night? It is a crime to sleep with make up on.  A make up remover is essential if you use waterproof make up because waterproof make up is not something that comes off by just washing your face. You need a remover that dissolves the waterproof product. We use a lot of waterproof products on the eyes- mascara, eye liner, eye shadows – all of which require effort if you try to remove them the soap and water way. Any tugging or pulling can even damage the sensitive skin around the eyes. What you need for it is an eye make up remover which can dissolve waterproof products and clear your skin pores of the makeup. We have compiled here a list of the best waterproof eye makeup removers in India.
