The 7 Best Eye-Makeup Removers, According to Makeup Artists

Amy Lewis

What’s the point of eye makeup remover? We’re really glad you asked. Though it’s true that your ordinary cleanser can likely do an okay job at lifting away eye shadow, when it comes to the trickier task of melting away waterproof mascara and eyeliner, most tend to fall short. (Especially given that the eye area is one of the most sensitive and easily irritated areas on the face, therefore needing a little extra care.)

A good eye-makeup remover will have been specially formulated and put through a different series of tests, compared with your everyday cleanser, to ensure that it can quickly and gently lift away even the most stubborn of waterproof gel liners without causing any irritation to the delicate skin surrounding your eye or upsetting the balance within your eye. After all, irritation triggers rubbing, and we all know the ageing effects of tugging and pulling on the skin surrounding our eyes. Hello, fine lines and premature crow’s feet!

So now that we’re all on the same page regarding the need for a good eye makeup remover, what about the best ones out there? To save you from doing any leg work, we’ve already got that covered. Scroll down for the very best eye makeup removers, as recommended (and relied upon!) by some of the best makeup artists in the business.
