Blot It Out

The only things that should shine are your hair, the sun and your best friends (diamonds)!

Keep your t-zone in check with blot paper. Unfortunately not all blot papers are created equal.

You have to find one that:

* erases the shine with without taking off your makeup.
* has finely milled powder to prevent product buildup.
* mattifies skin without a drying appearance.

Brands I like:

The MAC Cosmetics Blot Film: Perfect travel size -- 30 sheets/$13.50.
The BOSCIA Blotting Linens: A green option free of dyes, chemicals, parabens and sulfates. Great for sensitive skin. 100 sheets/$10 at Sephora.
The SONIA KASHUK Blotting Papers oversized blot tissue. 100 sheets/$7 (VALUE)

Blotting papers keep skin fresh and shine free -- great on makeup-free faces too! They're a staple item in my kit and are perfect for male and female clients alike.

Do you use blotting papers? Post your favs in the comments section.
