I was so excited to see that Good House Keeping Magazine US posted about my baby powder mascara beauty myth! It got a ton of questions that I thought I would share it again! It works so well! :)

Soooo, I’ve been experimenting with some rather interesting beauty “secrets” and while some work, some really don’t! I just tried doing the baby powder on your lashes beauty hype that has been going around, and it works–BEAUTIFULLY at that! All you do is apply one layer of mascara, then using a q-tip apply a small layer of baby powder on your lashes! Then coat again with mascara, and voila! It adds so much volume to the base of your lashes, it was actually really surprising and amazing!

      Not at all, I was worried it would be, since I wear contacts, but it wasn’t at all

    OMG, I just tried this with my Passion Eyes masacra from Dolce&Gabbana, thanks a bunch :D

    So you apply one coat of mascara first, then powder, then mascara again? because in your pics it seems like you only do powder then mascara.

      Darling, that is not normal, and there is not anything that we can do that is beauty related, this is caused from something health related. You must see a doctor and I recommend a natural doctor that is more into natural healing, as they are usually great with hair loss issues

  9. 13 Katherine

    LOVE this idea, i will have to try it. Do you need to wait for the first coat of mascara to dry before putting on the baby powder?

  15. 20 Jag

    Hi what contact lenses to u wear pls

  16. 21 Krista

    It also works with clays and is better for your lashes. Such as French Grenoble clay or bentonite

  17. 22 Krista

    French Green Clay* ..don’t know what happened there ha

  18. Wonderful! Very helpful, specially if you don’t want to wear false eyelashes. :)

  19. 24 lujain

    Woww!! That’s amazing

  20. 25 Meshii

    Hi Huda, I just wanted to ask is there anything which can make eyelashes stronger; every morning I wakeup and see an eye lash on my face even when I take mascara off I would see a lash on my face. If you have any recommendations please let me know… Thankyou x

  21. 26 Krista

    Meshii, I use a mixture of coconut oil (for its benefits for hair) and castor oil ( for its benefits of making hair more thick, long, and stronger) on my lashes before bed each night. I had the same problem but now my lashes are fuller than ever and it’s only been 3 months since I started doing this!=)

  31. 37 Sarah

    Pleaseeeee tell us eye contact brand and color

  32. 38 Arlene

    I would not use baby powder,it is not safe. I use eye shadow powder. It works great and it’s safer.

Tell me what you think Gorgeous?!
