I wear a small amount of “natural” liquid liner (not waterproof, wipes right off my hand with water) from whole foods, but somehow I can not ever get it all off my eyes. I use coconut oil and a washcloth and end up with oily contacts, irritated lids and an impossible thin coat of eyeliner right inside my lashes. What am I doing wrong??

have you ever used just regular make up remover?
If that hasn’t worked, look in to the makeup removing “wonder cloth”. I’ve used it and it’s amazing. Makes it easy to take off and you don’t get all the oils around or in your eye.

I always wash my face with regular or gentle face wash after I remove my makeup. I usually remove it with makeup remover wipes or cocounut oil too. Coconut oil gets really annoying if you get it in your eyes but its really healthy for the face.
Washing it with facewash is really what helps me most, almost more important than removing with anything else. that extra black makeup that ends up in the waterline ends up in the tear duct and I just wipe it off with my fingers
i hope that helped!

Am I supposed to be taking my make up off? >> <<

I use micellar water for my eye makeup, then witchhazel for the rest of my face as a cleanser/toner. I only use face wash if my face is feeling really grubby or coconut oil if Im wearing a ton of makeup (and then Id follow up with micellar&withhazel as standard). Hope you find something you like 🙂

OK, maybe I need this wonder cloth because that’s the only thing that really sounds different than what I’m doing. Weird concept!

Sounds weird, but I just use conditioner in the shower to get my eye make up off. I read that oil dissolves oil, and conditioner is basically a light moisturizer, so I tried it and it works.

May sound weird but I use hair conditioner (thicker the better) as a pre-soap makeup remover. I rub it over my eyes, let it sit a bit and then wash w/ face soap. Anything leftover is easily wiped off w/ a soft towel 🙂

Use a cotton tip or a Q-tip to get the hard to reach places in between your lashes?

Muslin cloths work good too. I use them with Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, it’s the only thing that doesn’t bother my eyes at all

one other thing to try is baby shampoo– I have been using it for years- gets it all off and is vey gentle to your skin/eyes.

Garnier Micellar Water is the most gentle yet most effective thing for removing makeup that I’ve ever tried. I wear a hell of a lot of eyeliner and it comes right off. It’s cheap too. If I’ve used something gel based that doesn’t want to budge then I use a little olive oil.
If you’re getting irritated eyes then I’d stop using coconut oil and use something else.

Most people wipe their eyes with the cotton ball starting from inside your eye (closer to your nose) outward… you gotta go in the opposite direction, start with the cottonball on the outer side of your eye, close your eye, then swipe in toward your nose.
This is hard to explain without a visual, lol.
