Ole blue eye

Yesterday my Mum gave me a tiny trial size liquid eyeliner in bright peacock bue - it was part of a free gift from Boots No.7.
This morning I decided, before I washed my face, to give it a quick try just on one eye - have a look at the effect. Bit bold, but quite festive. Then I washed my face. Looked in the mirror. Still one blue/green swoosh over one eye. Tried Liz Earle eye makeup remover. Then Clinique. Then Vaseline. Then I read the tube. 'Stay Perfect' (or words ot that effect). I'm stuck with the remnants over one eye. How do you get the berludy stuff off? I look like a crazy woman. I don't even want it on now, so am loathe to do the other one, and all the faff to get it off again... Sigh... I've got a rare night out tonight, was going to go for the sultry smoky eyes look. Now I'll just have to go for Circus Troupe sparkle. Sigh again...

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar Heck, nasty.....you can't exactly scrub your eyes. But can't you put the smokey stuff over the blue (maybe balance up the other eye first)? Then you'll get the odd glimpse of glimmer. Hopeful me!

Re:
Ivy's Avatar Get some oil from the kitchen (almond if you happen to have it but any other seed oil will do even olive) put it on some cotton wool and wipe your eyelids it should come off.

Re:
KittyB's Avatar Thanks Ivy - a ray of helpfulness amongst the mirth (grrr Milla) I will have a go with some olive oil. But failing that, Jane's suggestion of the smoky graphite bunged over the top with have to be the way forward. Thankfully it's only the staff and govenors' Christmas meal at the local pub, nobody to impress. They all think I'm crackers anyway. At the last meeting I chaired I hurried everyone up at 9.30pm with the words, 'come on, make it brief, stop waffling, it's bedtime.' They looked at me with some surprise/derision etc...

Re:
Pondside's Avatar Like Ivy, I'd suggest the oil or some good face cream, but don't use cotton wool or tissue, be sure to use a wash cloth. I've had........er ........a similar experience and can declare that real cloth seemed to do the trick.Embarassed

Re:
KittyB's Avatar I've just been to school to pick up H and Kind Lucy peered at me and said 'oh, I see it's still there, then.' Ah. Off for a hot bath, some cleansing oil and that washcloth - good advice, Pondside!

Now come on, Pondie - share the shame!

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar Face clothes and scrubbing would do it but eeek, on sensitive eye area. So carefully. Steady with the oil or you won't be able to keep any make up on top afterwards - it will all slide off.
But hey, it's a night out! Go, enjoy! You will look gorgeous whatever.....

Re:
Exmoorjane's Avatar Hmm, have you tried toner? Know that sounds funny but I've got some that is like acid wash.....takes off anything.

Re:
What about putting an ice cube on it first and then wiping off with cotton wool dipped in warm water? Good luck and have a good night out.

Re:
LaughingLaughingI'm sure it hasn't diminished your gorgeousity (great word Chris) one jot. I seem to remember in the 70's there was something that you had to almost peel off. It stuck like glue, but once you managed to raise a corner it lifted off quite easily. I've got some Helena Rubenstein remover, which I swear would strip paint, but it's not really much good to you considering you're down there and I'm up hereRolling Eyes

Re:
Patsy's Avatar Hmmm beauty advice from you @TM?
You who appears to need surgical intervention to get the hair curlers off your head? You've never been seen without them!
And do pull your stockings up missus, they are all wrinkled round your ankles! Rolling Eyes

Camilla's Avatar Hi Kitty,

Have you tried the blue tub of NIVEA, this gets rid of most cosmetics. Just rub away gently with some on tissue, should do the trick.
