It's always such a treat when you can use just one product to take care of all your beauty woes. Not only it saves a lot of moolah, but it also comes in handy when you are in a fix. For instance, do you have any idea that you can use regular baby powder as a part of your beauty routine as well? In case you are wondering how you can do that then here's some help:

Get Voluminous Lashes

If you wish to get luminous lashes without going OTT with the mascara then trust baby powder to do the job for you. All you need to do is dust a very small amount of powder on your lashes, while applying your regular coats of mascara. Believe it or not, but your lashes will look more lengthy, voluminous, and thicker with this trick. Not to mention, it will also prevent the smudging.

Make Your Lipstick Last Longer

It's a bummer, really, when you spend big bucks buying expensive lipsticks and they refuse to stay on your pout for more than a few hours. Moreover, you really don't need to starve yourself to protect the coloured pigments. Instead, apply some baby powder on your lips for the magic effect. Begin by applying a coat of your favourite lipstick. Once you are done, place a tissue over your lips and dust some baby powder with the help of a lip brush on your pout. Next, apply another layer of lipstick. This will make it last longer.

Say Hello To Matte Finish

All you oily-skinned beauties out there, we have some great news for you: you really don't need to invest in pricey face powders to keep your skin oil-free. Just baby powder would suffice. You see, the talcum in the powder does a fab job at absorbing the oil and sweat and keeps your face shine-free for hours. All you need to do is pat some baby powder on your face once you are done applying foundation.

Make Anti-Acne Face Mask

Have you tried every trick in the book to fight acne, yet failed? Have you spent hours applying various face packs to fight the pesky pimples, but to no avail? Well, maybe this hack will take care of your acne once and for all. All you need to do is add some rosewater to baby powder. Mix it well and apply the paste on your acne-prone areas. Leave it on for 15 minutes then wash it off with normal water. Make sure to moisturize your skin once you are done.

Say Goodbye To Oily Hair

Why do you need to invest in chemical-laden dry shampoos when you have baby powder handy? So, if have to go out but don't have the time to wash your hair then just dust some powder on your scalp and gently pat it off. This will absorb the excess oil and you hair will look more alive.
