Hi I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm here to answer your question: How to remove black light reactive ink from your skin. It's probably best not to wear actual black light reflective ink on your skin but there are makeup products that do serve that same purpose that are best to use for your skin because they will come off. And we have our lovely selection of our colors that we can use under a black light. Or they're also called day glow colors So if you go outside in the bright sunlight they'll do the same thing. So they do glow underneath a black light and it's not necessarily hard to remove it in daylight but it's best to actually remove the makeup underneath a black light because then you'll see bits and shades that you wouldn't normally see in the daylight. But we don't all have the luxury of owning a black light . So what we're going to do is, it comes off quite easily, in all honesty, as long as you're using the proper makeup. We're just going to go in with some petroleum jelly. Now soap and water works fine but sometimes you're not around an actual sink. So if you don't have water or any ability to rinse then this will do the trick. So I'm taking my jelly and I'm going in with a sponge and we're just coating the area, and it's slowly coming off. These colors do tend to stain or ghost and a couple layers are probably needed to remove this makeup. If you're doing a really intense look with body paint then you might need to further go in with Witch Hazel which can remove a lot of the staining that happens with this makeup. And as we can see it's coming off nice and it's, it doesn't require a lot of tugging or tearing on the skin and that's exactly what we're looking for. The skin isn't red because of agitation, it just has, again, that tint from this pretty pigmented reflective makeup. We can see that it's gone, if you need to go in with the Witch Hazel or maybe another layer, that's great, too. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how to do black light reactive ink or makeup removed from your skin.
