Halloween makeup can surely be unique and fun to apply, but sometimes those fake wounds and clown faces can be really hard to get off once the night is finally over.

While you don’t need to be a trained makeup artist to remove your makeup properly, you’ll definitely need some handy tools to ensure that all traces of foundations and shadows are totally off your face. But before you run to the store and grab whatever makeup remover you can find, know that not no two makeup removing products are the same.
