What kind of make up are you wearing?
Oil or Water Based?
Oil based ALSO KNOWN AS cream or grease (grease paint)
Make sure you are using the correct make up remover for the kind of make up you are wearing!
Water based make up is the easiest to remove.AVOID: paints, including Tempera, Sharpies, acrylic and watercolors. They are not design to be applied to the skin!
Body paints can be staining to your skin and clothes so patch test your skin in an area that people won’t see to make sure it won’t leave you looking like a surf the next day!
If you are going to be wearing fake hair which is typically applied with spirit gum make sure that you have adhesive remover to remove it later. If you don’t have the remover use oil (olive, almond, etc.) soak a Q-tip in the remover or oil work along the edge of the fake hair gently pulling. Don’t just rip off the fake hair!!!
Don’t use a wash cloth! It will end up ruined. Stick to cotton balls or pads, tissues, Q-tips and facial wipes. You can use a wash cloth after all the make up is off to wash your face not before!
Remember water and oil don’t mix! Using oil on a water based make up equals a mess!
Examples of Water Based Removers:
Use a store bought makeup-removing wipe, bi-phase liquid remover, or micellar water
Usually works on latex make up as well!
Examples of Oil Based Removers:
Cold Cream – good for glitter
Albolene – good for glitter
Oils like: almond or olive
Petroleum Jelly/Baby Oil (can be used but the above are much better options)
Wipe off the oil based removers without water first! Get all the make up off before washing your face! Again oil and water don’t mix!
Follow up by washing your face as would normally do.
Still some residue left:
Apply a thick layer of shaving cream to your skin and massage it in. Wipe it off with a washcloth or tissue and the cream should lift the stains from your skin.
Using fake blood and afraid of staining apply a barrier cream like invisible glove before putting on the fake blood!
Cloves are the aromatic flower buds of a tree in the family Myrtaceae, Syzygium aromaticum. They are native to the Maluku Islands in Indonesia, and are commonly used as a spice. It is an evergreen tree, which produces a flower bud it is often referred to as clove bud. The clove bud has a shaft and a head and hence it has the Latin name clavus, meaning nail.
Archeologists have found cloves in a ceramic vessel in Syria, with evidence that dates the find to within a few years of 1721 BCE. In the third century BCE, a Chinese leader in the Han Dynasty required those who addressed him to chew cloves to freshen their breath. Cloves were traded by Muslim sailors and merchants during the Middle Ages in the profitable Indian Ocean trade, the clove trade is also mentioned by Ibn Battuta and even famous Arabian Nights characters such as Sinbad the Sailor are known to have bought and sold cloves from India.
Cloves were traded like oil, with an enforced limit on exportation. As the Dutch East India Company consolidated its control of the spice trade in the 17th century, they sought to gain a monopoly in cloves as they had in nutmeg but failed.

It is commonly used dental care; several toothpastes, mouth wash and oral care medications contain clove oil as an ingredient.
