How to Remove Mascara With Micellar Water


If you love to wear mascara, you probably hate the part where you have to take it off. Mascara can be hard to fully remove without damaging or pulling out your eyelashes. Plus, no one like that ring-around-the-eyes look the next day.

Removing your mascara the right way can make the process much less frustrating, and it can spare your eyelashes from being damaged or pulled out. Micellar water can be a great way to get mascara off your lashes without having to scrub or rub your eyes.

How to Use Micellar Water to Remove Mascara

Micellar water is purified water that is made with molecules that attract and remove dirt and oil from your skin. It is perfect for all skin types, and it is a great tool when it comes to removing makeup that you have applied to your face. If you have never used Micellar Water before, you will probably be shocked at how effective it is when it comes to taking makeup off, which would be hard to remove using other products.

You will want to apply your Micellar Water with a makeup remover pad. Just pour a small amount onto a cotton pad and press to your eyelashes. Hold in place briefly, then start to massage gently. The gentle motions will lift the mascara off your eyelashes as the Micellar Water breaks down the components in the mascara that make it stick to your lashes.

Make sure that you have another cotton pad prepared to finish the cleanup job once you have removed the bulk of the mascara from your lashes. Rubbing the same dirty pad over your skin, again and again, can contribute to breakouts and skin irritation. You will want to have a fresh pad ready so that you can finish wiping up the remainder of the mascara without hurting your skin or spreading the residue around.

Can I Use Micellar Water Just to Clean my Skin?

Yes, Micellar Water can be used as a skincare product as well, which is why this is such an ideal choice for your makeup removal needs. You will be cleansing and caring for your skin at the same time that you are removing your makeup when you use Micellar Water for this need. This is one of the gentlest and yet most effective ways to remove makeup and to clean up your skin at the end of the day.

Make sure that you are using a quality skin cleanser as well to back up the work that you have done with your Micellar Water makeup removal process.

Micellar Water is Great for Removing Makeup

No matter what kind of makeup you use when getting ready for the day, Micellar Water can help you to remove it in a gentle way when you are ready for bed. Micellar Water is a great tool for a full range of skincare needs, and if you have not been using it to date, it’s time to start caring for your skin with this effective product.

Mascara! Did you know that mascara is the most used makeup product?  A poll taken by Mintel said 64% of women wear mascara.  That’s higher than foundation, blush, OR concealer.  So, the majority of women are wearing mascara.

Why is mascara key in your makeup routine? Most woman wear mascara to make their eyes pop.  Even if you don’t wear eyeshadow, adding a little mascara to your lashes opens the eyes and makes them look bigger. 

What is it about mascara we love and how do you choose the right kind? There are so many choices, maybe too many choices.  But now we have the perfect mascara for everyone — the New BEYOND LASH Volumizing Mascara.

It’s also important to understand what’s not in our healthymascara.  As always, we strive for clean ingredients that perform. We always formulate without Parabens, Phthalates, no carbon black, or Teflon (standard ingredients in traditional mascaras).

The hourglass shaped wand is also a huge innovation. It will hug the base of the lashes so you can get even, thicker, fuller lashes with just one coat.  And no clumping!

How to Apply Mascara

mascara application tips

Depending on your lashes (curly, poker-straight, lacking volume) here are some handy mascaratips and application guidelines:

Top – of – the Line Lashes

Wiggle the wand close to the lid and press to create the illusion of eyeliner! This will make your lashes look even fuller. This is known as a “stamping” technique.

Roll, Curl, Repeat

For more curled lashes, roll the wand as you wiggle from root to tip. Apply a second coat while lashes are wet.

Every Last Lash

To coat difficult to cover lower and corner lashes, hold the wand upright, gently press into lashes to coat each individual strand.

Just a little mascara trivia. Mascara dates to the Ancient Egyptians as far back as 3400 B.C.  They used bone and ivory to create their applicators and blended Kohl with crocodile dung (we know that was not clean!), water, and honey. Men and women both wore mascara during this period.  It wasn’t until 1872 when Eugene Rimmel created the first packaged cosmetic mascara — it was petroleum jelly mixed with coal dust. (We’ve come a long way!)
