We all know what translucent powder is for, and it is basically to set our foundation. But did you know that translucent powders can also be used for another make up hack except for just setting makeup on your face? You can actually use it to make your eyelashes longer and thicker.

Who needs falsies if you have translucent powder? But if you don’t have any translucent powder, you can also use some baby powder, it wouldn’t make a difference.
