How to Get Lipstick Off of Skin

brain-lipstick_300If someone’s ever planted their pucker on your cheek with freshly-applied lipstick (hello, Aunt Bea!), or if you’ve been a little bit too overzealous with your Halloween makeup, you can understand how difficult wiping away a heavy lipstick stain can be. The next time you’re in a crunch and don’t have any makeup remover handy, try this trick.
