There's a lot of hype going round about this beauty secret at the moment and it's actually quite an old trick to achieving thick, voluminous and long lashes depending on how well you apply the baby/talcum powder...
What I do:
I apply a thin coat of mascara to my lashes to start off with just so the powder has a base to stick to, I then apply a thin layer of powder using a fluffy brush making sure to evenly coat all the lashes including the inner corner baby ones. I then finish off by applying a final layer of mascara to seal the powder onto the lashes and get jet black lashes. You can build up as many layers as you like, usually 2 layers work for me otherwise I just use false lashes.
Make sure you do apply thin layers as you can end up with really lumpy spider lashes which are not so good looking unless you like that sort of thing of course. Also using a cotton bud or Q - tip to apply the powder will work just as well as using a brush.
By doing this you can get a very similar look to the 3D Fibre Lash Mascara from Younique and this way you don't have to splash cash on a whole other mascara! And yes I have tried the 3D Fibre Lash Mascara and to be perfectly honest I didn't love it on me - Don't get me wrong, it does work really well but it just flaked way to much on me and it was very easy to get lashes that looked clumpy and spidery rather than voluminous and long.
Let me know what you think when you try this out for yourself! I'd love to see the results you guys get - So do share them on Instagram & Twitter!
