Since most clown make-up is some kind of petroleum-based product (grease) you need something that made from a similar product to re-liquefy the greasepaint on your face.
Soap won’t do it. You’ll be scrubbing and scraping your skin if you try to remove grease-paint with soap. Save face!
There are lots of different professional products on the market.
I prefer Mehron’s Make-up Remover for a number of reasons:
- Easy to use
- No waste
- No travel mess
- Gentle on skin
- Smells nice
- Low cost
- Lasts a long time
How to use Mehron’s Solid Cream Make-up Remover:
- Scoop about a tablespoon on your fingertips. A little goes a long way, so start out with less than you think you need.
- Using your fingers, rub it gently all over your face in a circular motion. You will feel the remover become more liquid as it makes contact with your skin. Massage it into your skin. Take your time and give yourself a bit of a facial! What you are doing is re-liquefying the greasepaint so you can wipe it off. It almost seems to melt off! When I am removing my whiteface make-up I do it in sections at a time. I am very careful not to get it in my eyes; I wear contacts.
- How you take off the melted make-up will determine if you have a bad reaction. Use a soft moist cloth to remove the mess you have created on your face. Paper towels and even some baby wipes can be rough on tender skin, especially under the eyes!
- Once you have wiped off the melted make-up and remover, wash your face with warm water and your regular skin cleanser.
- If you don’t already use skin moisturizer, you should consider it. As we age, our skin becomes less pliant and more dry. Dry skin sucks in the pigments of your make-up and is harder to remove. Moisturize your face in the morning to give it a chance to soak in well before you begin applying your clown make-up later in the day. If you find that your skin is still picking up pigment, try using Barrier Spray before you put on your greasepaint Remember to use moisturizer after washing off your clown make-up, too.
Make-up Remover by Mehron –
The 4-ounce jar will last you a very long time. Its simple 4-ingredient product has been expertly formulated to have quick penetrating properties that will non-abrasively remove grease paint makeup.
This fine cleansing cream treats your skin to a moisturizing treatment while you easily remove even the heaviest of makeup applications. (and I love the fresh scent!)
Give it a try; you will love it.
I don’t like wasting product. While liquid removers work great, they run down your arm and your chin and are incredibly messy to use.
Not only do liquid removers leak into your make-up kit or luggage, but they also are banned in your airline carry-on luggage because they are more than 1 ounce of liquid.
Because this Mehron Makeup Remover is a solid there is no dripping, no waste, no spilled liquid in my suitcase prompting a full body search by Helga at the airport…you get the idea!
