sleeping with makeup one ONE TIME doesn't ruin your skin, it's really baffling that so many of you guys believe that. The worst that could happen from one time is a breakout (level of said break out depends on the sensitivity of your skin) and yes, breakouts suck but they don't ruin your skin if you take care of it. that's even IF it happens. But sleeping in your makeup won't give you wrinkles and saggy skin and discolouration after one time. the article doesn't recommend it but it does give you the information that's needed if the occasion occurs. I'm all for washing off makeup, I don't like sleeping in my makeup, but if I had to do it wether it be because I couldn't wash my face or I needed to save time for in the morning, I would consider it for that time. washing your face too much can do the same damage that you all talk about sleeping in makeup does. You can sleep with your makeup on, just don't make it an every night habit. just like you can wash your face but don't over do it. what's the issue here

Never sleep in your makeup!

Calm down everyone, it's not recommending sleeping with make up on, it's advice for those who choose to occasionally for whatever reason. I personally remove mine at night too but each to their own. Ugly comments are worse than sleeping one night in make up!!

The worst feeling in the world is to sleep with makeup on, unless it's an afternoon nap. If you want to see how bad it is to sleep on your makeup do so and when you remove it the next morning you'll probably saggy skin and acne all over your face

Even when I come home drunk I make sure I take of my makeup. I feel bad if it don't lol

Eeeeeeeew! Worst post ever. If anything, no ONE should do what KK does. I cannot believe this. And I can't believe either that Marie-Claire published such a thing. Again, EEEEW

I would never..........

Stupid and pointless article. Don't follow Kim ks advice. Do the right thing and remove your make up before going to bed.

No night zits for me! I'm not doing this unless I have no choice.

This is stupid
