From NASA-made foundations to freckle pens, there’s never a shortage of weird and wonderful new launches in the beauty industry.

But the latest – make-up made from paper – may just be the most intriguing to hit the shelves yet. They may look like blotting paper but these new foundation, highlighter and blush papers from Mai Couture are tipped to be the next big thing in beauty. The light sheets, which cost £12.50 for £50, are infused with color for base, lips, cheeks and eyes. The makers encourage you to simply press and sweep the paper over your face and then blend it to finish the look. ‘Tear a sheet from the booklet (one sheet is enough for both cheeks) then gently rub the colored side of the paper in a semi-circular motion up the apples of the cheeks. For added depth of color, repeat motion with added pressure. Discard after each use,’ read the blusher’s instructions.
