Microfiber cloths. We use them to clean cars, kitchen counter tops and our television sets butt I bet you didn’t know you can use them in your skin care routine. Here are 4 great ways you can use microfiber cloths in your Makeup and Skin Care routine.
I like to think that there are two types of Exfoliation- Dry exfoliation and Wet Exfoliation.
Dry Exfoliation– as the name implies, use the microfiber cloth on a clean, dry face and rub the microfiber cloth gently, in small circles all around the face and neck .The purpose of this is to get rid of any dead skin cells and improve blood flow to the face.
This can be done 2 to 3 times a week
Wet Exfoliation– After I rubbing cleanser on your face, just like in Dry Exfoliation, take the microfiber cloth and I rub in small circles all over your face and neck.
This should be done every other day.
*You can use both of these techniques to prep your lips for a liquid lipstick and you can also use it on your body*
I think makeup addicts like myself know about the * Vera Mona Color Switch.
If you don’t know about this sorcery,let me explain. The Vera Mona Color Switch is used in your makeup routine, when you’re doing eye shadow application.
For example, when your doing you’re eye shadow,you may have one great blending brush that you want to use more than once but you can’t because it’s already packed with eye shadow. This is where the color switch comes in. Just swipe your brush in the color switch one or twice and all the eye shadow is removed and no color is transferred when you SWITCH eye shadow colors. It’s a tool I never knew I needed. Recently, by accident, I discovered that you can use a microfiber cloth for color switches as well. It’s really simple. Just take your used brush, rub it into the microfiber cloth a couple of times until all the eye shadow is removed. If you want to make it extra clean, you could dip your brush in some rubbing alcohol and then rub your brush into the microfiber cloth. If you are doing this, I suggest that you don’t use it right away.
A Microfiber cloth is also a dupe for a more expensive product that removes makeup. It is called, The Makeup Eraser.
The Makeup Eraser is a product that stepped on the scene I think, a year and a half ago. The first time I saw this product was on Instagram. It was marketed as the one step solution for removing makeup, even the most difficult makeup products like waterproof eyeliner, waterproof mascara and HD makeup.
The Makeup Eraser is essentially a microfiber cloth. It does the exact some thing a normal, cheaper microfiber cloth does.Yes, it is a bit softer than a cheaper microfiber cloth but that does not mean that the microfiber cloth isn’t soft also. When I’m removing my makeup, I saturate my face with coconut oil (yes,blog post on that coming soon), rub it in, let it sit for a couple seconds, then I use my microfiber cloth to remove the makeup. If you’re not into all of that,you could just wet the microfiber cloth. It does the same thing but I like to do the extra step to ensure all of my makeup is removed.
Last but not least, this magic cloth can be used to dry makeup brushes after washing. It is as simple as rubbing your wet brushes into a dry microfiber cloth!
