Cleansing 101 With Beauty Expert Andrea Claire
Andrea Claire Cleansing

In this series, we address the number one thing you must perfect before any outlandish lip colours or dramatic winged eyes; caring for your skin. Remember, good makeup starts with good skin, so honing in your skincare regime and tweaking bad cleansing habits is paramount. Like art, a good canvas is key, which means a fresh, cleansed face that is radiant and clear enough to wear with, or without makeup.

First up, we go back to (skin) basics, with two cleansers that will leave you so fresh and so clean.

Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water For Face and Eyes

The best part about this clever cleanser is that it doesn’t require any water, making it ideal for makeup artists and people on the go (i.e. everyone). It’s the perfect cleanser if you’re working on models and need to go from one look to the next but don’t have a sink nearby. Or perhaps you’re going straight from the office to girls-night-cocktails and need to reapply that concealer; simply take a cotton pad, use a couple of pumps and wipe away.

Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

Your eyes are the most sensitive part on your face, so perfecting your peeper routine is essential. Whilst eye makeup removers are everywhere, this one has a little something special. Enriched with a lash-strengthening ingredient, you’re basically getting longer lashes whilst removing your mascara at the same time – pretty fancy, right? All you do is shake the two ingredients, put a little bit on a cotton pad and wipe it off.
