Want a more natural (and cost efficient) way to take off your eye makeup at night? I use coconut oil (pure extra virgin and organic is the best!) and my makeup comes off smoother and quicker than any other expensive makeup remover I’ve used before! If it gets on your skin you don’t have to worry about chemicals leeching in – coconut oil is actually great for helping your skin glow and keeping it moisturized! Plus, it smells delicious!
So next time you run out of makeup remover, try this 100% natural home-remedy first (olive oil works as well)!

This will keep your brushes soft and in great shape for years to come. Your skin will thank you later.

Aren’t they all created equally? – Not by a long shot! The fact that skin cleansers main purpose is to remove all the makeup, dirt, and oils from our skin can be a little misleading. What a lot of people don’t know is that if you don’t use the correct skin cleanser for your skin type, you can end up with dry, stripped skin that is anything but healthy.
