Lash Plumper

Apply two coats of mascara, then dip a cotton swab in baby powder and brush it onto your lashes. Finish with two more coats of mascara and boom—major lashes without the hassle of falsies!

Ease of Waxing

Waxing is great, or least the aftermath is, but the pain and redness isn’t. A bit of baby powder applied before your wax application can help the wax adhere better to the hair, while protecting the skin. You will end up with a less painful and smoother result.


Did you know that baby powder makes a great deodorant alternative, that is if you have run out of the other stuff? It absorbs moisture and smells fresh.

Long-Lasting Lipstick

Want your lipstick to last all day? Okay well, maybe just most of it? Try applying a light coat of baby powder to the lips in between the first and second coats of your choice of lipstick.

Cut Cure

Baby powder will help ease the pain and mess by helping to stop the bleeding.
