Easy Trick: Thick Lashes using Loose/Talcum Powder

Apart from a healthy diet and gentle care, do you know what can help you get thicker and longer looking lashes? Talcum Powder!! Yes, that's right! When used sensibly, talcum powder is actually a very handy tool. It can:
-Help mattify oily areas on your face. Just rub a small amount between your palms, clap a few times and blot your face.
-Save you from oily roots. Just rub a small amount on your palms and finger comb through your roots. Brush your hair.
-Make your lipstick last longer by first applying it, then blotting on a tissue. Pat a small amount of powder on your lips to mattify and re apply the lipstick.
- Make your lashes look thick & long (I will show you how)

These are my fav uses of Talc. What are yours??

 You will need:
-Eyelash curler (optional but recommended)

 After applying a coat of mascara, Using a fluffy brush, dust your lashes with talcum powder. Gently wipe away the excess with the same brush.

Now apply the second coat of mascara, and Voila!
