6 Beauty Treatments That Are a B!*ch to Remove -- and the Best Ways to Get Them Off
Glitter nail polish. Eyelash extensions. Waterproof mascara. All fun to wear -- all a nightmare to take off. Here's how to remove makeup and other beauty treatments that are notoriously a pain in the you-know-where to remove
How to remove eyelash extensionsLash extensions are a great invention for anyone with wimpy, straight lashes -- but when they begin to fall out, you go from looking like a doll to looking like one that's been roughed-up by her 4-year-old "mother." Eyelash extensions should fall out naturally after two weeks, but inevitably one or two stubborn ones hold on. Yanking them out is not only painful, it will also cause you to pull out your natural lashes along with the fake ones. Instead, try loosening the lash glue at home with this trick:
Step 1: Wash your face, avoiding your eye area.
Step 2: Fill a bowl with boiling hot water, place your face over it, and cover your head with a large towel. Keep your face above the steamy water for 10 to 15 minutes.
Step 3: Then dip a cotton pad in olive oil and gently swipe your lashline, which will encourage the extensions to slide right off.
