Posted by Ellen on Mon, 10/27/2014 - 12:00 AM

Uh, of course going as Cady Heron’s Halloween faux pas is such a fetch idea. Honestly, is there any better way to commemorate the 10-Year Premiere than strutting into the party as the infamous Ex-Wife? Well, aside from that mandatory October 3 post, of course.

So yeah you’ve got the costume down: white face paint, dark black eyeliner, bloody red lipstick, plush wedding dress, sheer veil, and the kicker - nasty teeth!

 

Now as for your post-party, clean-up plan? Ah, didn’t think that far ahead, huh? Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered; no raccoon-ringed eyes for days, blotchy lips, or seriously clogged pores for you. Just follow our clean up tips and November 1 you’ll awaken bright-eyed, with a seriously revitalized complexion!.

 

Full Face Refresher

Step 1

Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover

Grab a cotton ball or pad and go ahead, dose it in this super-gentle cleanser formulated for the eye and lip area. Start with the eyes. Two to three swipes across the lid, under eye, and lashes will instantly remove all make traces of makeup; no matter the base: powder, cream, gel, etc. Just so you know, the Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover  formula is ophthalmologist-tested and won’t cause irritation for contact lens wearers. Once you’re finished with your eyes move onto the lips. No need to press hard here, with soft strokes you can easily remove the darkest of pigments.

Step 2

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk

Now grab Take The Day Off Cleansing Milk Clinique’s  gentle, milky makeup remover. Squeeze about a quarter-sized dollop into your palm and apply to entire face with your fingertips. Let the cleanser sit for 30 seconds and start with your T-zone, softly guiding a cotton ball or pad across your forehead and nose with broad strokes.  Now move onto the chin and cheeks. The milky formula dissolves the most stubborn of facial makeup. When all makeup is removed, fully rinse your face and pat dry.

Step 3

Clinique Clarifying Lotion

And for the final touch, a hydrating splash of Clinique Clarifying Lotion .Dermatologist-developed formula sweeps away any remaining excess oil that can lead to breakouts. Just run a quick layer over entire face and it’ll leave skin looking cleaner, more refined.

 

Spot Check!

Ok, so you didn’t go all out this Halloween. Instead you played up your best assets (lips, eyes), while incorporating a gnarly gash or two, maybe a witchy wart, a few playful whiskers, or a dazzling touch of pixie magic. Either way, you need to transform back to yourself and Clarin's Instant Eye Makeup Remover  will do the trick. This cleanser is amazing for heavy or waterproof eye make-up, which means it will also be amazing for serious costume makeup removal. Just shake well, squeeze into a cotton ball or pad and spot remove as needed.
