But, makeup can lead to horrible experiences, like ruining your favourite top. You have to be careful in applying makeup as some cosmetics are challenging to remove.

Some cosmetic stains are non-removable with normal stain-removing tricks. These makeups are already waterproof and oil-based, making them hard to break down and bring back your clothes into their former glory. Thus, if ever you experience a cosmetic stain, it is better to pre-treat them first before bringing them to the nearest laundry expert.
