Get FAT lashes with... baby powder!

I have a very simple little trick for you to get big fat lashes on the cheap... one that I used to do all the time when I was younger, i.e. when I did not work, didn't have my own money to spend on good quality products. And this trick is... using baby powder to fatten your lashes! That's right, baby powder!

All you have to do is apply a single coat of mascara, while it's still wet dab some baby powder on your lashes with a Q tip, then coat with another layer of mascara. As easy as that! The fibres of the powder will cling to your wet lashes, thickening them up, while the 2nd layer of mascara will seal it all in place.

1. My bare lashes
2. Wearing a single layer of mascara
3. Baby powder and a Q tip
4. Applying baby powder to my lashes
5. My lashes topped off with a 2nd coat of mascara after applying the baby powder.

So why baby powder? It's hypoallergenic, so if some was to fall into your eye it won't do any damage besides the initial discomfort.

What do you think of this little trick? Have you tried it? Would you?


  1. Oooh, never heard of doing this before! Would save money on those white mascaras meant to do the same. Thanks!

  2. WOW I never heard of this trick before but the results look amazing, will have to give this a go!

  3. I think I heard it somewhere but never tried it. I should though!

  4. Great tip!! I use to do this with compact powder, but it's a waste! This way, it's a lot better!!
