Cosmetics / Makeup Tip: Summer tip for fresh makeup

submitted by Sally, Fort Collinhs, CO USA

Tip description / details:
I would like to share a great summer (or anytime) tip for keeping your makeup just-applied fresh. If your skin tends to get more shiny/oily during warmer weather; instead of buying expensive blotting papers simply use a porous, cheap napkin or public restroom paper towel (like from a fast food place). These work exceptionally well because of their porosity and absorption properties. I get a couple of extras when I'm on the go and at lunch, stuff them in my glove compartment and then when I feel the need to refresh during a busy day I just take one out and press against the various oily areas of my face and presto! It's like you just put your makeup on fresh again!

Cheap, porous napkin or paper towel.

How to prepare:

How to use:
Press gently but firmly onto oily/shiny areas of face.

Results (observed by submitter):
It's like you just put your makeup on fresh again!

Costs involved:
way minimal
