Use dish soap. Since lipstick is made from an oily base- degreasing dish soap helps dissolve lipstick pigment.

Apply the soap, then let it sit for a few minutes then rinse with hot water.

cotton fabric: use a toothbrush to remove the excess foundation. Then apply spot cleaner (fabric cleaner/carpet cleaner) with a dampened cloth and dab on the stain.

Wool or silk: Don’t try to fix it yourself. Best to take it to the dry cleaners

Hairspray: “I can’t even begin to tell you the amount of makeup that has ended up on my clothes,” says freelance makeup artist Erica Maniscalco. Her tip that works “99 percent of the time” is hairspray. She warns that you must use a spray with a strong hold (she uses L’oreal Elnett Satin), not a shine spray or one with oil ingredients. “I spray it on the stain, and when I wash my clothes, the makeup always comes out,” she says.

Vodka: Jill Turnbull is a makeup artist who works with The Washington Ballet. “I work with ballerinas who have many extremely quick changes and wear the costumes up to three times in one day,” she says. She swears by vodka, of all things, for removing even “the most intense red from a white fabric.” She pours a little vodka on the stain, blots it, and washes it.

Baby Wipes and a Tide pen: Dee D. Rouzan, professional makeup artist of 19 years, calls the combo of baby wipes and a Tide pen a “life saver.” Rouzan recommends the baby wipes for hard surfaces and the Tide Pen for clothing and carpet.
