So here's another Tried and Tested Tuesday! This time I am trying out something I've heard forever- baby powder to make your lashes thicker. I have seen this so many times on Pinterest but actually never tried it for some reason. So I guess it's time I put it to the test. I do naturally have long lashes and I am a mascara junkie so I will always find a mascara that works well to lengthen and build volume but if you need a little help, I would recommend this trick. I was surprised at how well it actually worked.
So here I just applied one coat of mascara to my top lashes, then before it dried, I dusted a bit of baby powder across them with a small face brush.
Then I applied another coat of mascara to cover up the baby powder and here's the result:
Not bad right? Ok so here's a few more pictures just to show you what a difference it makes.
On top: My left eye has a coat of mascara, baby powder and another coat of mascara. My right eye has only one coat of mascara.
And the before and after side by side. I think this works well considering there's not much to it. I'm personally too lazy to go through the effort but I would say it works if you want to try it out. It's not exactly fiber lashes or anything but it does add a bit of volume. I only dusted a light layer, I didn't get crazy with it so that might make a difference if you keep layering. All in all this is a good tip to try. Anyone else tried this or do this daily? Let me know if there's something you'd like me to try on my Tried and Tested Tuesday series!
