As much as we love makeup (and we love makeup a lot), removing makeup at the end of the day is just as important, if not more important, than wearing makeup well during the day. Leaving your makeup on at night can create build up, breakouts and more, and it’s never worth it. Once you figure out which cleanser works best for your skin, you need to figure out which makeup remover is best for your needs. Luckily, we’ve pulled together the best makeup remover no matter what you need.
From waterproof eye makeup remover to oil-free formulas to remover sticks, here are the 10 best makeup removers for whatever your needs are. Take a look at our picks, then tell us your favorite makeup remover in the comments below!
