Volumising mascara is great, but if you don’t have one, don’t apply several coats of regular mascara in hopes of getting fuller lashes. The only other way to get thicker, plumped-up lashes is by sprinkling some clear loose powder over your lashes between two coats of mascara to up your eye makeup game. Make sure the first coat is still a little wet when you sprinkle the loose powder to get the desired results.

Most of us do our eye makeup after finishing our base, but eye shadow tends to fall out, especially when you are using powder-based products. Fret not, instead of doing your base again or piling more compact only to end up looking patchy, you can dust a layer of loose powder below each eye before starting your eye makeup. Once you are done simply dust it off using a fluffy brush.
