Then blot excess lipstick on a tissue paper. Take dip a small brush in talcum powder and lightly dust it over your lips. After that, put the lipstick again. This easy trick will help your lipstick stay longer. Just make sure to clean up the area around your lips properly after the dusting it with powder.

2) To give more volume to your eyelashes: The hair on my eyelashes is quite thin and even after using an eyelash curler and mascara, I don t get longer and thicker eyelashes. What I do now is this: first, I curl my eyelashes and then apply a coat of mascara. Then with a brush, I dust a little powder on my eyelashes. Then I put another coat of mascara. Applying talcum powder to your eyelashes makes it look thicker, it sets the mascara properly and gets rid of clumps. Make sure you are using very little powder on your eyelashes.
