Before waxing

Keeps lipstick in place

Applying baby powder in between applying lipstick coats helps it last for long hours.



Fill in your brows

After using a brow pencil to fill in sparse areas, sprinkle baby powder onto a brow brush and comb through to plump up each hair.



Removes excess shine from face

Baby powder is used for absorbing excess oil and dust on your face to obliterate an oily T-zone.




Using a large powder brush, baby powder is used once you’re finished with setting up your makeup to keep it as translucent as possible. The powder will also work to absorb any excess oil, keeping you from looking too dewy.



Use as deodorant

Just sprinkle a handful of baby powder into the palm of your hand and rub it into your underarms. It works great to eliminate sweaty odors and baby powder naturally absorbs moisture so it will keep you dry and fresh all day.



Cools your skin

Baby powder has a natural cooling property which will eliminate any irritation that shaving may have caused and it leaves your skin silky smooth. It’s also perfect for sensitive skin. If you normally experience razor burn due to sensitive skin, the baby powder will help to clear it up and leave your skin much less irritated.



Plump eyelashes

Create a acne-fighting face mask

Using of baby powder in with few drops of water and making a paste. Apply this paste on to your face for about 30 minutes and it will make your skin much softer and smoother.
