How to Remove Glitter Makeup

Shine bright like diamond… for hours and days. If you have ever attempted to wipe away or wash away sparkly eye or lip makeup you may have been in for a surprise. Yes, most likely a good 90 percent left your face, but the other 10 stayed around for the after party.





Easy removal begins with a good base. Before applying glittery eye or lip makeup be sure to swipe on a base of Vaseline first. Once your base is in place then you can get glitzy! Clean up any excess sparkly makeup using Scotch tape in order to give your eye or lips look a more clean finish.

Moreover, at the end of the night you can once again let Scotch tape come to your rescue. Use the tape to pick up any glitter bits. Now one might say, “Can’t I just use one of my trusty makeup removal wipes?” Oh you can but a wipe will most likely just move any particles around instead of wiping them up and away. So then, remember dolls use a good base as well as some tape and you can escape any glitter makeup removal issues.
