How I Remove All My Makeup


I don’t always wear makeup, but when I do, I tend to pile it on. The second best feeling to taking your bra off, just might be removing all of your makeup.

When removing my makeup, I want to know that every drop of product is gone and that I won’t be clogging my pores or leaving leaving residue on my pillowcases. I also have horrible anxiety, and I believe I immediately get blemishes and breakouts. I know, I’m dramatic…
