Hello beautyholics, how’s the monsoon going for you? Not so good for me as the humidity is irritating my oily skin even further. I need something which makes my face look matte and fresh all day. I’ve stumbled upon baby powder and got to know how amazing it is for beauty purposes. After a lot of research, I’m here with 11 Beauty Tricks Baby Powder Can Do to beautify you further. Let’s head on to the post now…
Why choose baby powder? Because it’s gentler and safer than any other talcum powder. It is meant for babies so we can trust it.
Use it as a setting powder
With the help of a large powder brush, set your makeup with a translucent layer of baby powder. It will absorb excess oil from the skin and give a polished look, especially when you have oily skin. If you buy the setting powder that’s too dark, you can also lighten your loose powder by mixing with baby powder.

Bake your makeup
After you’ve applied concealer, apply heaps of baby powder on your skin and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Within this time, your body temperature will get adjusted to baby powder. Do your makeup in the meantime, after that take pressed powder on a brush and gently sweep it off your face. Baking will make your face remain matte for a longer duration.

Highlight your undereye area, forehead, nose bridge, and chin area with baby powder. It will not only make your skin shine-free but also highlight the beautiful areas of the face.
