Hi, I’m Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist. And today, I’m going to show you how to get makeup off of a sweater. Sometimes, we’re in a hurry and we get our makeup all over our sweater, or if we pull it over our head some of it gets on our necklines. So, the best way to handle this until you can take it to an actual cleaner if it gets really stained is to try to find a brush that has some hairs on it that can wisp it away easily. And so, that’s what we’re going to do with this one. It’s going to uplift the product without pressing it back into the clothing and the fibers, which is normally where our troubles are. So, try to go with the grain. This has ribbing going vertically, so vertically is probably going to work the best. After that, we can see that there’s still a little bit of lightening left. We’re just going to go in with a makeup remover wipe – nothing with actually face/eye makeup remover, because that’s a little harsh on the skin or the fabric. So, we’re just going on with an actual wipe and just dusting along the ridges, not pressing too much product in there. A Clorox bleach pen is ideal, but this is just the great alternative if you need something in a pinch. We can see that most of the makeup is eliminated, and we can carry on with our day with this. I’m Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how to remove makeup from a sweater.
