What You Will Learn In This Episode:
- how many disposable cosmetic items we use
- there are more sustainable alternatives to makeup remover wipes
- the Makeup Eraser is a great solution for your makeup removal
What you’ll learn about me pretty quickly is that I have been doing makeup professionally for a long time and I’ve thrown out a lot of single-use items, mainly in the cleanup aisle.
Q tips, cotton buds for my fellow Aussies, mascara wands, and tissues. Oh my god, the tissues. And the worst thing is that it tortures me, the amount of single use products we seem to rely on at work.
As makeup artists, and in our homes as well. Just as makeup wearers. When I heard about the Makeup Eraser, I thought two things. First of all, Nah, there’s no way that this product can actually do what it claims, and two, I’ve got to try one.
Of course, I chose the standard black, and cut to, it’s already been the best part of a year since I took the makeup eraser plunge, which by the way, came out of a blog post of mine, where I did a deep dive road test between a makeup eraser and a generic microfibre cloth.
I’ll link to it in the show notes if you’re interested in hearing what I found.
And I’ll give you a clue. I’m talking about the Makeup Eraser today, after all, and not the generic microfiber thingamajig. So what does a makeup eraser do exactly? It takes your makeup off with warm water. Even mascara and the long-lasting bits, it really does.
So I do like to use a cleanser with mine because I get very tempted to apply too much pressure and drag it across my eyes as I’ve probably done with every towel, face washer, cotton pad, cotton ball, you name it, over the last 30 years or so. Hello, undiagnosed rosacea. Oh boy. Yeah, it does leave you a little red faced.
But honestly, these are the best things, and you just have to take a look at their website to find a color range or a shade that works harmoniously with your bathroom decor at home.
If you’re a working makeup artist, I highly recommend switching over to these from the cheap and nasty hand towels that we all have in our trailers because you know they don’t last, they lose fibers and they can get a bit stinky, too if you don’t wash them regularly.
Here is hoping we can put an end once and for all to those pesky makeup remover wipes. Seriously, did I mention that they are one of my most hated, and I don’t use that word lightly, of all beauty products. Just don’t get me started.
So check out The Makeup Eraser if this is news to you.
Makeup Erasers really are the best and they work so quickly and so easily. I love them.
