I was fortunate enough to be #blessed with my dad’s super long lashes, but that still doesn’t stop me from wanting them to be even longer. My favorite look is a natural face with long, full lashes and a bright lip. That’s why I own, like, a million tubes of mascara.
Sure, you can wear false lashes or pack on mascara until you can’t see, but neither of those options are really good for your lashes. I’ve been seeing this baby powder mascara trick all over the internet and figured I’d give it a go. Basically, you apply baby powder to your lashes while your mascara is wet and it’s supposed to add length. Does it work? Find out!
Mascara of your choice, a fluffy shadow brush and baby powder. I used Johnson & Johnson.
Start With Bare Lashes
Apply One Coat Of Mascara
Tap On Baby Powder
Before your first coat dries, lightly tap on baby powder using your brush. Warning: do not do this while wearing contacts.
Let It Dry
Let your mascara dry with the baby powder on.
Appy Second Coat Of Mascara
They look pretty long, right? I noticed more fullness instead of length, and they felt a little clumpy to me. How does this compare to mascara without baby powder?
This is my other eye with just two coats of mascara. They look pretty much the same to me.
Side By Side
So...you can't really tell a difference. Like at all.
Meh. This "trick" doesn't really do anything. I'm currently sitting here with one eye coated in baby powder, and my lashes on that eye honestly feel heavier. I didn't notice a difference in length, though there was a slight difference in volume. But I don't think this really does enough to warrant doing it. I have better results by combining mascaras.
