Awesome Ways To Use Makeup Wipes

When I run out of makeup wipes, I literally freak out! You may think this sounds a bit silly, but it’s because I use it in so many ways! If you’re only using your makeup wipes to just remove your makeup, you’re underestimating the power of makeup wipes! Just to be fair, I wanted to share some awesome ways to use makeup wipes other than removing your makeup that I’ve personally learned over the years!



Awesome Ways to Use Makeup Wipes


Clean makeup brushes

Having clean makeup brushes is a must to create a crisp makeup look!

Gently rub your makeup brushes with a makeup wipe to quickly clean them! This is my preferred method of cleaning my brushes when traveling.


Clean up eye look

Messed up your winged eyeliner? No need to worry when a makeup wipes is in reach! You can swipe makeup wipe along the angle of the eye for a crisp eyeliner and eyeshadow!


Clean the bottom of your bag

We all have those dirty bags that we just throw whatever in them. Instead of leaving it filthy, you can easily clean the bottom of your dirty bag by using a makeup wipe.. Just don’t expect makeup wipes to magically remove ink stains!


Lift stains

One of my favorite ways to use a makeup wipe is to use it to clean makeup stains on the carpet or on clothes. If you end up dropping your makeup palette on the carpet or accidentally rub some foundation on your shirt, leave it to makeup wipes to remove the stains!


Tame pesky flyaways

Gently wipe the root to the mid section of your hair to help with flyaways when you style your hair up. However, I don’t find this to be too effective with the hair hair is dry and frizzy.


Remove residue from surfaces

This may sound strange, but I love using makeup wipes to remove buildup on my bathroom vanity and bathtub. You won’t believe how easily makeup wipes removes any gunk. Seeing gunk bothers the heck out of me, so I love removing gunk whenever it starts appearing. You can even reuse a makeup wipe (one that has already used to remove makeup) with this method. You just want to make sure to wet the wipe with water before using. I use this as a first step in cleaning my vanity and bathtub and always disinfect the area with a bathroom cleaner and scrubber after. Try it for yourself — you’ll see makeup wipes really does the trick of removing gunk fast!


Do you use makeup wipes in any other ways than removing your makeup?
