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.

  • 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.
