Clean up only once after eye makeup application

Eyes first!

I advocate doing eye makeup first, then face makeup.

Here’s why:

Eye makeup spills outwards in almost every direction no matter how carefully it is applied. That is why the eye makeup is Screenshot 2016-04-14 10.26.26applied before proceeding to the appearance of skin.

Key reasons for cleaning up now:

• Time/step saver- Wait to do all the cleaning maintenance at one time during the application rather than little fixes all along the way. This will save time and energy.

• Sharpen and crisp up the edges of the eye makeup by trimming away the unwanted spilling excess.

• Avoid all of this mess going into a perfectly prepared foundation. There is no point in doing a beautiful foundation if pigment from the eye makeup spills on top of it.

• Re-moisturizes the under-eye area before the crucial correction phase of makeup for a smoother application to the delicate under-eye area.


Simply saturate a cotton swab with tissue off cleanser (cleanser that doesn’t require water, like Cetaphil) and wipe away all residual makeup that fell under the eye as well as outside the borders of the world of the eye.

As a precaution, wipe all the way down to the base of the nose. Pigment floats farther down than realized as eye makeup is being applied.

Use the clean side of the cotton swab to remove any excess cleanser from the face.

Note: This series of video tutorials is organized in a specific order of application. It is not necessary to do every step when you do your makeup but I do suggest you follow the order of the videos and skip the steps that don’t apply to you.
