A fresh glowing face is always in for the summer, but that doesn’t mean that sweaty is chic. Piling on tons of powder in the heat seems so unappealing, so what’s a girl to do? We’re all about using blotting papers to keep our faces shine-free without gooping on more makeup. One of our favorites is Rodan + Fields Unblemish Oil Absorb Blot Papers, $19 for 60 sheets. Just one small square for your entire face does the job with a subtle dash of talc powder, not to mention the nude color sheets are definitely discrete. Other blotting papers we love include Philosophy’s The Supernatural Blotting Papers, $10 for 100 sheets, and Boscia’s Fresh Blotting Linens, $10 for 100 sheets, which are customized by skin type. Tell us: how do you keep shine-free in the summer?

If you haven’t heard about this yet then you’ve got to try the brown napkins from Starbucks. Keep a stack in your car & purse and grab one next time you need to blot – it’s the best, ever and it’s free!

I’ve never had blue stuff every shown up on my skin with the clean and clear blotting sheets. They are the absolute best. I’ve tried Clinque also and they didn’t suck the oil off as well. I don’t like the paper sheets that deposit powder onto your skin.

I also use Mineral Veil mineral powder and that works wonders.
