Facial tissues are a disposable option used as an alternative to handkerchiefs. They are also sometimes referred to as, ‘paper handkerchiefs’. Because of their disposability, they are known to be more hygienic compared to a handkerchief since they are disposed of immediately after use instead of being stored which prevents bacteria or germs to affect your health adversely.
You have probably used facial handkerchiefs for basic hygiene for example blowing your nose or cleaning your mouth after eating or drinking. But there is a lot more you can do with these disposable pieces of cloth. Let’s take a look at 5 unique ways you can use facial napkins:
Applying Eye Shadows
It is typical for glittering eye shadows to scatter all around your eye during application. Makeup artists will know what we’re talking about. Before applying glittery eye shadows, placing a tissue paper beneath your eye can prevent fallouts which ensures a clean and flawless eye shadow application.
Oily skin is a major struggle for a lot of women. It is usually the T zone, nose, chin, and the forehead that have an apparent oily sheen during humid and hot weather conditions. Facial wipes are an excellent way of getting rid of excess oils and keeping your skin as fresh as possible for majority of your day.
Removal of Excess Makeup
They can even be used to remove excess product from your face. Gentle swiping motions can help remove excess coats of foundation, concealers, and other products ensuring you get an even coat all over your face.
Matte lipsticks won’t cost you an arm and a leg anymore thanks to facial wipes that can help you achieve the same matte look with your average lipstick. It is quite simple. All you need to do is separate the layers of tissue from one another and apply it on your lip. Gently, press against your lips and apply a tiny bit of transparent powder with a makeup brush and remove the wipe for a final reveal!
Arts and Crafts
Did you know you can use tissue papers for art and craft? Grab yourself some scissors, tissues, tree twigs, and ribbons. You can create breathtaking flowers with tissue papers for decoration during the spring.
Don’t discard the tissue box! Use your imagination to decorate the box to improve its appearance and it can be used as storage for small items. You could use anything for embellishments and have a beautiful looking storage box. It is as simple as that!
