Today I shall list down Top 5 tips and tricks to use a tissue paper for makeup which I included in my life and found them very useful. I want to share all these tips and tricks with you today.

How to Use Tissue Paper for Makeup

Tip 1- The Matte touch

The most commonly used tissue paper use is to dab that tissueon that lipstick, to make the lip color matte and long lasting. How to go about it? After applying the lipstick, just grab a tissue and keep it between your lips and press the lips lightly. The blotting will take away the shine and make sure that lip color stays on for long. You can re-apply lipstick and blot it again just to be doubly sure you know Wink

Tip 2- Give me Wings

Winged eyeliner is the best makeup revolution in the recent times, no it’s not recent. We have seen our Bollywood divas rock the winged liner since the 60’s. But this trend is back in vogue and how. It’s a rage. The winged liner can be perfect with a little practice, but I wanna cheat Biggrin enter Mr. Tissue again. Just grab a tissue and fold it to give a straight line on one end. Place this at the outer corner of your eyes to give you a guideline to make that wing come alive. Now you just got to put your childhood tracing and drawing talent to some use, just draw a line following the line of the tissue. Next, you have to connect that flick to the rest of the eye liner, draw it inwards till the inner corner like you usually apply the liner. That’s it! Perfect winged liner Wink

Tip 4- Eye Shadow Fall out 

The powder eye shadows can sometimes be really nasty. It falls all over the place, under the eyes, over the face and everywhere else. If the eye shadow is shimmer based, then falls outs can make you look like a multi colored disco ball. To avoid all that unwanted mess, grab a tissue and there will no issue Blum 3 Oh! That rhymes. If you use one hand to put the eye shadow, you can use the other to catch the eye shadow fall outs by placing a tissue folded under the eyes till the cheeks. This keeps your base makeup untouched and clean.
