Materials
Vaseline or other petroleum jelly.
Micellar water.
Cotton round.
Fierce League
Instructions
1. Apply a thick layer of Vaseline over your lipstick. Gently rub it into your lips with a fingertip.
2. Put some micellar water on a cotton round. Rub the cotton round over your lips and remove the Vaseline and lip makeup.
3. Never go in with a dry tissue or cotton round, as it will drag at your lips and cause irritation.
4. Don't press or rub too hard. The Vaseline layer should help melt away your makeup, meaning it can be softly wiped away without too much pressure.
5. Once you're satisfied your lips are totally clean, reapply a thinner layer of Vaseline to add moisture.
