The Easy Way to Remove Makeup

The Face-Cleansing Trick the Beauty Pros Adore

Do you ever get the feeling that your facial cleanser's benefits are getting washed down the drain? Makeup artist extraordinaire and Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux has the solution. "I take a few pumps of makeup remover and put it all over my face. Then I leave it on for 10 minutes while I shower and shampoo," Pecheux explained. This mask method gives the steam time to help your product penetrate.

His favorite all-in-one makeup remover and cleanser is Bioderma Créaline H2O (a French brand that is hard to procure on this side of the pond). But this trick works with any moisturizing face wash. This season at NYFW, Pecheux did shows for big names like Badgley Mischka and The Row, passing on his skin care knowledge to all; even manicurist Deborah Lippmann is already using his tip.

Bioderma is very easy to get in the US as anyone who has shopped Amazon can tell you. Various vendors offer it at verious prices ranging from a price comparable to what it costs in France up to the totally rediculous. Caveat emptor!
