We beauty junkies aren’t above doing some pretty strange stuff if it yields results.
When it comes to eyelashes, I’m not well-endowed – as you can see from the ‘before’ photo above. They’re short, thin, and so straight they point down. As a result I’ve tried a lot of mascaras and have settled into a nice little way to layer mascara and get decent results. Still, they could be bigger.
I stumbled across this idea years ago, and hadn’t tried it since probably high school because who has time for this. Apparently I do. I had a few extra minutes on Monday morning and I used them to give this a try.
After curling my lashes, all I did was squirt a little baby powder into my hand. With a Q-Tip waiting in the wings, I applied my first coat of mascara (for me, waterproof). While the mascara was still wet, I dipped the Q-Tip into the powder and ran it across my lashes. You don’t need much; a little goes a long way.
I followed up with a coat of my second-coat mascara. It’s great on its own, but with baby powder to cling to and build up volume, wow.
