How to Get Liquid or Cream Foundation Out of Your Clothes:

Turn to shaving cream to remove smears of oil-free foundation from collars, carpets, and bath mats. You can also mix in a touch of alcohol if the stain won't lift with shaving cream alone. After treating the fabric, throw it in the wash to really get that stain out. If the handy-dandy Tide to Go pen ($9) fails you when it comes to oil-based foundations, pretreat the spot with dish detergent to counter the oil in your liquid foundation.
