This one is probably the easiest one to remove. Scrape off as much of it as you can without rubbing it into the fabric. Then apply a stain remover like Shout and launder it as normal. If that doesn't work, wash it again but with color safe bleach.

Oil-Based Make Up


 
 

Use a makeup remover or rubbing alcohol, but first make sure the color won't run by testing it in an inconspicuous area like inside the seams. Dab a small amount onto the area and let it set for ten minutes. If it doesn't change color, you should be OK. Next, use a washcloth to dampen the stain with whatever you used on the seam then dab it with a dry paper towel until the makeup stops coming out. Then dab stain remover on the site and wash in warm water.

If you can use bleach, mix a quarter cup of it in one gallon of water. then soak the stain for a half an hour. If you're worried about the colors running, use ammonia instead and instead of soaking the garment, stretch the stained area over a bucket and pour the mixture directly onto the stain then rinse well and throw it in the wash.
