Shine On ... Or Not

There's something to be said about someone who can pull off a summer glow.  That dewy look of just being misted with a crashing wave is gorge!  But the look is not so attractive if the shine is due to oily skin...

Many brands have their very own version of Clinique Oil Blotting Sheets.  Blotting sheets run anywhere from $5 to $20 for a package with anywhere from 50 to 300 sheets.  

My home solution?  Just grab a tissue or a few squares of toilet paper.  Rubbing your face with this would lead to smeared makeup and the need for retouching.  So when a shining moment arises, just lay a tissue on the oil spill and gently press your fingers to the tissue.  Patting the tissue will allow the oil to absorb while your makeup stays put.
