P.M. Step 1: Remove & Cleanse Straight from the desk of the skin care gods: Thou must remove thy makeup before slumber. Start with an oil-based makeup remover (check these reader-approved options for top-rated removers) for your eyes, which should wipe that heavy eyeliner right off. For heavy makeup, use a wipe to remove the bulk of the day's camouflage. However, don't stop there. Kraffert says that wipes are great in a pinch, but they don't usually remove everything -- or if they do, they leave a residue behind. "Without water to help remove [the makeup], it's a fail," he says. Follow up with a cleanser (the same gentle exfoliator used in the morning works) to get the rest of the job done.
