The other day, while organizing my makeup collection, I noticed one item that had gone missing. The item in question is a lash primer that came with a mascara purchase. I realized that I rarely used the primer. But, it could be one missing step that takes my mascara routine to the next level.
Instead of wasting too much time searching, I browsed online for a DIY lash primer. Moments later, my question was answered. More than anything, I wanted to create the “fiberlash” effect that seems to dramatically increase the length of our lashes within seconds.
All you really need is your favorite mascara and a powder. Pretty much any dry powder will do.
First you prep by curling your lashes. If you want to create an extra bit of drama, heat the eyelash curler for a few seconds with your hair dryer (test the temp of the curler on the back of your hand before applying to eyes).
Once curled, apply one coat of mascara. This moistens them which allows the powder to stick. You can use baby powder, loose facial powder, whatever. I’ve tested this with multiple powders and, for me, activated charcoal came out on top. The ebony powder seems to add a slightly darker hue to my lashes. Although it’s pretty easy to cover up white powder with your mascara, with activated charcoal, there’s no white powder to worry about.
The end result is lengthened, more dramatic lashes. Who needs to waste hard earned money on falsies when you’ve got this budget friendly alternative that works beautifully? It takes only a few seconds to do but the payoff is huge.

This is a simple and quick beauty tip for fuller, longer lashes: After applying the first layer of mascara, apply a thin layer of baby powder onto the wet lashes. You can apply to the whole lash or the roots (for a fuller and thick look) or just the ends(for a longer look). You can repeat this step again for an even fuller/longer and dramatic look.
