Sephora Makeup Blotting Papers
Blotting Sheets & Blotting Papers
When it comes to makeup, you want products that make your skin glimmer and glow. But if your perfectly applied makeup look begins to show unwanted shine and sweat, oil blotting sheets and powders can help. These handy products are must-haves for every makeup bag, especially during the summertime. You can apply them at any time of the day to give you a fresh, clean look.
What is Blotting Paper Used for?
Blotting paper is a cosmetic tool that aids in the removal of skin oils and makeup. By reducing a shiny appearance, the skin can maintain a smooth, matte finish. Oil-absorbing sheets and oil-blotting sheets help keep your skin shine-free all day long.
When you’re concerned about shine, gently press the sheet anywhere on your face for a few seconds. Don’t rub the paper on the skin as this can spread the oil around instead of absorbing it. Be sure to repeat throughout the day as needed.
Difference Between Blotting Sheets & Blotting Papers
Both of these products are extremely efficient at soaking up excess oil on your skin. But there are a few differences to take note of.
Blotting papers are small, thin and compact enough to take wherever you go. The papers absorb oil and are thrown away once you’re done using them. Blotting powders, on the other hand, are typically lightweight and translucent. They can be applied with a makeup brush to cover up excess sebum production.
Who Should Use Oil Absorbing Sheets?
Oil-absorbing products are especially effective for people with oily skin. However, blotting papers will work for anyone who wants to absorb excess oil that appears on the surface of their skin. Look for products that contain oil-fighting ingredients and come in a convenient size that you can take with you on the go.
Should You Use Blotting Products if You Have Acne?
Some blotting papers are dusted with salicylic acid and minerals to actively reduce the formation of comedones and acne. The great thing about blotting papers is that they don’t typically have harsh ingredients that can be found in some oil control cleansers and toners.
Other Tips for Staying Shine Free
In addition to blotting paper, be sure to explore other makeup essentials. Another way to combat shine is with a mattifying primer. This way, you can control excess shine without drying out your skin. Another great option is a setting powder. Look for a lightweight setting powder that lightly blurs oil and uneven textures for an ultra-smooth appearance.
