Quick Beauty Tip for the Budget Divas

Makeup removal can be so irritating to remove, when I get home I just want to crash but not before I remove my makeup. There are plenty of makeup removers out there from: makeup removal wipes to liquid and cream makeup removals.

I put about 10-15 wipes in here, it's very convienent for traveling.


One of my best kept secrets is... I use baby wipes to remove my makeup. I used to buy to makeup wipes and they did the job, but they can be expensive- $6-$8 for 30 wipes and some brands are even more expensive than that. I thought, why am I using makeup wipes when I can use baby wipes. If baby wipes are gentle enough for a baby's butt, they're gentle enough to use for my face.


Baby wipes remove all of my makeup, even stubborn mascara and eyelash glue.

They're also cheaper, I can get 80-90 wipes for $3 or less.  I'm not particular about any brand-I normally just buy the store brand. They're made with some of the same cleansing ingredients and moisture properties in makeup wipes since they're used to clean a baby's bottom :) I also use these in my kit as makeup wipes for my clients.

Just a quick tip that I thought I would share, hopefully it helps :)

Comments

I often wondered about using baby wipes, I didn't think I could use them for whatever reason... Shame on me! Lol. Thank you for sharing. I need to pick some up tonight. I've been using E.L.F. wipes, but they don't last very long!

Thanks!

Thank you sooo much for this tip. This was right on time, I never thought to use baby wipes. Makeup wipes have been getting crazy expensive for me.

I have used baby wipes on occasion. The only thing I don't like them for is eye makeup but other than that they do a solid job.

@Lovelifelive4ever: The makeup wipes don't last long for me either, sometimes I would need 2 for a face and they only give you 30-40 wipes.

@Destinee: Your welcome, the baby wipes are less expensive...CVS brand has 70 for under $2.50.

@Danielle: I understand what you're saying, I prefer cotton balls to remove my eyeshadow (I use them along with the cream eye makeup remover)and baby wipes for mascara and everything else.

hey this is great tip. argh. i'd use this...because i'm lazy. i get confused with those beauty pple selling you all this crap you need for the routine...and i just give up...and just rinse with water in the shower..but it doesn't feel like it gets it all off completely. these are cheap and simple. maybe i shall go get these at the cvs.
Ms. Viva Glam said…
I know how you feel... I like to keep my makeup removal simple as can be. The wipes help a lot, after that I just wash my face and I'm good to go. Try the wipes and let me know how it goes.
Great tip! I'm definitely going to try this out. Anything that can save me some money....well, you already know :-)
Ms. Viva Glam said…

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!

At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.


Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."


Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
