We've all been there. You're out at a party, or on a hot date, and you start to sweat. Or, maybe you just got caught in a rainstorm. Suddenly, your carefully applied mascara is running down your face in black streaks. And, of course, you're wearing the waterproof kind. Don't worry, we're here to help. Here's a step-by-step guide to removing waterproof mascara without losing an eye in the process.

1. Start with a steamy shower and the best smelling shampoo! The steam will help loosen the mascara and make it easier to remove. Be careful not to get too close to the mirror, though, or you'll end up with raccoon eyes.

2. Grab a cotton ball and douse it with micellar water or your favorite makeup remover. Gently press the cotton ball against your lashes and hold for a few seconds before wiping away. Repeat until all of the mascara is gone.

3. Splash some cold water on your face to help close up your pores and prevent any irritation.

4. Admire your clean lashes in the mirror and congratulate yourself on making it through another day without looking like a panda bear.

There you have it! With these four simple steps, you'll be able to remove even the most stubborn waterproof mascara without any trouble. Just remember to take it easy on your delicate lashes—they deserve a break every now and then!
