As great as wearing makeup can be, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of taking it all oﬀ after a long day. But, removing it quickly, easily and comfortably is often a rarity. If anyone knows a thing or two about it’s Katy Perry, Madonna and make up artist Gina Brooke.
“One of my favourite things I’ve implemented into my regimen is SHU UEMURA OIL to take oﬀ all the makeup. Because it gets it all oﬀ in one swoop. So, you do dry hands and then you put the oil here [on your hands], put it all on your face, and then you get a warm wash cloth…and it takes it all oﬀ in like two swipes,” Perry says.
“I do this before bedtime, so it leaves a nice residue that is kind of like a bit of a moisturiser before you go to bed,” Perry says. “Madonna’s makeup artist, Gina, showed it to me about eight years ago and I was like ‘no,’ but then she said, ‘Madonna does it’ and I was like, ‘Alright, whatever it is, I’ll do it. Fine!’”
And there you have it, a Madonna and Katy Perry-approved solution that means you can stop using 1,000 makeup remover wipes each night. Win.
