If it’s heavier eye makeup, I typically use a cleansing oil (which one simply depends on what I have on hand or what I’m testing, but my default is shu uemura’s). If it’s a lot of long-wearing eye makeup, I will also use a separate eye makeup remover after I’ve done my face with a product like Lancome Bi-Facil. For lighter makeup, a lot of cleansers breakdown the majority of the product, and then I’ll use a toner afterward to ensure the rest is off (as well as around the edges of my face).
