Bionic Asks: How do you remove makeup?

I recently took a trip to a pretty dry climate. I’m one of those rare gals who adores humidity. My skin dries very easily and the humidity helps keep me from getting flaky. Between the humidity decrease and the dry airplane air, I knew I’d need to slather extra moisture on my face.

My solution? I mixed up a custom Tinted Moisturizer.

  1. I started with an empty mineral makeup sample jar– but any small tub would work (such as a pill container, lotion sample bottle, lip balm tin, etc).
  2. Then I added a few pumps of my Lexli Day Lotion (with SPF 15) and…
