There is a beauty myth that floats about saying that if you put baby powder on eyelashes wet with mascara, it will give you instantly fuller, longer lashes. Always up for a new adventure, I decided to try it out.
They way you're supposed to go about it is to swipe on some mascara (using my tried and true Falsies Volume Express by Maybelline), dip a Q-tip in baby powder, place in on top of the wet mascara and then redo the mascara on that side.
The first time I tried it, virtually nothing stuck to the mascara. I'm kind of wondering if it wasn't wet enough? I gave it another coat and, with a Q-tip, really tried to get the baby powder on good before swapping another coat of mascara.
Here are the results.
|Left eye baby powder, right eye regular mascara|
|Left eye baby powder, right side mascara|
To be honest, I don't see much of a difference. In fact, the baby powder seemed to clump the mascara more. I looked on Huda Beauty and although the blogger there claims it works, to me her eyelashes also look really clumped. Either I'm doing it wrong or it's just a myth.
