Remove | Supprimer

I have found a makeup remover that surpasses all others. FINALLY!

Behold! Salma Hayek’s Nuance Dual Phase Makeup Remover exclusively at CVS.

This stuff is MAGIC, unlike the shitty picture…the best one I could find.

It removes, literally, everything. [Even stuff you’d need a power sander for.] Waterproof eyeliner and mascara? Off. Red stained lips from last night’s debacherous extravaganza? Gone.

Smells light and calming. Leaves skin hydrated and supple. The packaging is absolutely perfect – none of the product goes to waste because of it’s ergonomically designed bottle tip, plus you don’t need much to take off a lot. Trust.

It won’t make your eyes turn red of filmy. You won’t break out in hives and neither will your catdoggerbil hybrid. Oh, and the ingredients are so awesome you can, probably, eat/drink them even if you’re gluten free!

Cucumber, rosewater, chamomile & lavender extracts nurture and soothe the delicate eye area. Mimosa, blue agave, camapu & prickly pear extracts soothe, hydrate and firm skin. Glycerin, a lightweight moisturizer, softens and hydrates skin and lips. Ophthalmologist tested. Dermatologist tested. Not tested on animals. Fragrance free. Hypoallergenic. Gluten free.

Go get yours now! I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Though I would indubitably want to be hired to paint faces on every [(high) paying] project thrown my way – I only own one set of two hands. Alas, nobody’s perfect.

On jobs where my presence is attained but not obtained, I have my humble recommendations for producers who double up as makeup/hair artists and are smart enough to come ready for anything:

  • Translucent Powder is of optimum importance as nobody wants to be immortalized on screen as a sweaty, shiny mess. My favourite is Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder.

  • Tissue Paper should always be on hand to wipe up snot rockets and pat down sweaty brows and noses.
  • Hairspray can not only rid unruly wisps of hair-in-the-face but can double up as an eyebrow tamer when used along with clean mascara spoolies [most beauty stores sell these]. I like Bumble & Bumble Classic Hairspray in travel size. This formula doesn’t weigh down hair, works great on any texture, and smells yums.

  • Lipgloss for women and Chap Stick for men and children – clear lipgloss can spruce up any face and lessen worry of dry, bleeding lips. Big fan of Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream which can also be used on dry skin anywhere on the body, especially important for gestures by hands with ashy cuticles.

  • Concealer for blemishes or discoloration of the skin and dark under eye circles. My new favourite saviour is Joe Blasco’s Red Away which is also waterproof thus fantastic for waterworks.

  • Beauty Blender Sponges are great to get rid of any foundation or powder streaking on the face of your victims. You can buy them with a cleanser that will prolong the life of your sponges up to seven months. [They come with super simple instructions for both applying and cleaning.]

  • Wet Wipes – for when you have to take everything off! Though I prefer Korres Pomegranate Wipes, simple unscented baby wipes will do.

  • Brushes are also a good idea – www.crownbrush.com has a really great selection of travel brush kits!

After all that you’ll need a pretty carrying case. 🙂

Makeup Remover | Démaquillant

I am so sick and tired of cleaning up your mess!

Astronomical numbers are logged in for the amount of times I’ve had to clean makeup residue gunk off of lids in order to start fresh.

Ya’ll are not looking in the mirror close enough or not interested in trying or just plain sadistic…either way it doesn’t ease the pain you put me through each and every time.

Perhaps your culprits are waterproof mascaras and pencils. Perhaps you don’t allow your face to touch anything else but agua. Perhaps you find that heroin-chic-grunge-look appealing. Perhaps you haven’t found a proper way to efface last night’s party off your visage.

Just so we’re clear – I’m not angry, just disappointed.

Here are my favourites:




If you need a makeup remover for dummies try:

Johnson's Baby Oil

And always use something gentle like cotton balls/pads:

  • Refrain from using anything waterproof unless you’re headed for the beach/pool or if you are en route to performing a dramatic scene in your acting class.
  • Do not use force when cleansing any part of your face – utilize your ring finger as much as possible around the eyes as it is the least pressured of your digits.
  • Make sure to bring me a bottle of red wine or anything from American Apparel if you know you’re set for the dog house. 😛
