Even if you’re not cooking this year, you better be in the kitchen helping the host/hostess carry dishes at the bare minimum. Between trips to the kitchen, and that super cozy sweater you decided to wear to your Grandma’s house (which is already heated to 94 degrees), you may get a little, um, shiny. Blotting papers are one of the best inventions ever–they’ll get rid of that extra oil without disturbing your makeup.
