At the end of a long day of commuting, working, working out, and errands, the last thing you want to do is spend time standing in the bathroom performing a lengthy evening beauty ritual. Are you tediously removing makeup, washing your face, applying toner, and sealing it all up with a hydrating moisturizer? If your thought is 'Ain't nobody got time for that' I feel you, and I've got just the thing.
As an avid wearer of liquid eyeliner over a firm eye primer, my makeup is built to last through hurricane conditions. When it comes time to take it all off, to save myself wear and tear to my delicate eye skin (plus time!), I turn to my trusty micellar water. It gently clears away makeup and debris with zero irritation. Now let me walk you through the best micellar waters on the market, so you too can experience their effective, but gentle, magic.
You worked hard on your killer makeup look—but you shouldn't have to work as hard on wiping it off at the end of the night. All too often we're relegated to either, a.) morning raccon eyes and foundation stains on our pillows, or b.) irritated skin from scrubbing too hard with our cleanser or makeup remover. Don't we all deserve a better way? We've investigated and screened through loads of reviews to find the best makeup remover for sensitive or acne-prone skin, drugstore options that feel like you splurged, and super convenient makeup removers that you can use on-the-go or in the shower. Check out our top-rated picks that wipe away even the most stubborn smoky eye.
Just the idea of adding more layers to your skin care routine can make anyone who is blessed with oily skin cringe. Don't dismiss primers, though, as they can keep your makeup from slipping and smudging through the day—you just have to find the right one. Focus on finding oil-free primers (duh, right?) that tackle shine, and apply before foundation all over your face or just to the trouble areas like your T-zone. And there's a primer perfect for you, no matter your budget.
We've created a list to find the best primer for oily skin across four budget categories: the Splurge-Worthy, that centers on luxury brands $45+; the Treat Yourself zone that hovers around $30; Wallet-Friendly for around $20, and the Super Steals you can snag for less than $10. Now you can look fresh-faced even when the temperatures start scorching in the summer.
