Removing Shimmer or Glitter Eye Shadows

While eye shadow with shimmer or glitter looks amazing, it sometimes may be hard to come off. Using a cotton pad and eye makeup remover, gently cleanse your eyes. Repeat a few times, if necessary. Afterwards, wash your face with a facial cleanser and follow with toner and moisturiser.
