Uses of Kleenex for Beauty

Other Ways to Use Kleenex For Beauty

Did you know that Kleenex was originally marketed as a cold cream/makeup remover? It wasn't until a few years after its initial release that it was commonly thought of as a nose-blowing product. Backstage at Fashion Week, I saw lots of facial tissue, and it wasn't just for blotting lipstick or t-zones. This got me to thinking about facial tissue and its usage in beauty. Here are some of my tips below. What are yours?

  • Hair protector: Behind the scenes at Fashion Week, hairstylists often use tissue between hair clips to prevent any unnecessary denting on freshly-styled hair.
  • Powder palette: Scrape off powders from eye shadows and blushes onto a tissue to create an artist's palette. That way, you can mix different colors together without making a mess. It's also a sanitary way to do someone else's makeup since you won't be double dipping into the products.

To see the rest,

  • Secret storage: Last year, I had the chance to interview Heidi Klum about how to look best on the red carpet (or pretty much any fancy event). She said, "My super-secret tip is I can't fit the powder compact into a very tiny evening bag, I'll take some shavings of the pressed powder wrapped in a tissue!"
  • Little helper: It might seem rather obvious, but tissues are great for removing gunk buildup around makeup items like mascara wands and nail polish threads. Clearing out the excess product ensures a tight seal, and prolongs the life of your makeup items. Yay.

I'll have to remember the powder idea...my clutch is awesome, but alas, teensy. Cellphone and mini wallet with ID, etc, and it's stuffed.
