An Easy Trick for Thicker, Fuller Lashes


For what feels like forever, I have been on the hunt for the perfect mascara. To me, the ideal tube would need to add just the right amount of volume and length, not clump or flake, not irritate my eyes, and be available in brown.

Every time I think I find the right blend, I find something wrong with it and try something new. While I am yet to find my perfect lash potion, I have recently discovered a little secret that makes any mascara help you get thicker, fuller lashes.

The trick? Baby powder!

Just swipe on one coat of whatever mascara you’re using at the moment, then use a q-tip to apply baby powder to your lashes, which should have an ashy look after the powder is applied. Next, add a second coat on top of the powder and you’re done!

Now, what super simple beauty tricks do you rely on?

P.S. My most recent mascara purchase was CoverGirl Clump Crusher in brown. It hasn’t arrived in the mail yet, but if I like it I’ll be sure to let you all know ;)

    I’ve been using the Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara for about 3 months. So far it’s the best one I’ve found.
