10 Baby Powder Beauty Hacks Using Talc Free Powder
Baby powder beauty hacks have been something much talked about over the past few years, but recently it has come into the limelight that talc—an ingredient found in most baby powders—might actually be dangerous for us and for our children.
Mummy’s Miracle Delicate Baby Powder is a safe, talc-free solution. This product replaces talc with cornstarch infused with soothing, anti-inflammatory ingredients like aloe vera and rice starch. So what kinds of baby powder beauty hacks can you achieve with talc-free baby powder?
1.) Makeup setting
The main purpose of most translucent makeup powders and setting sprays are to absorb excess moisture from the skin. Baby powder has a very similar function, making it just as good to use for makeup setting as the leading makeup brands.
Better yet, less is more with baby powder as a setting alternative--all it takes is to dust the slightest amount onto your face.
2.) Lipstick setting
Baby powder can easily help you to up your lip game in two ways.
To make sure that your lipstick remains vibrant all day, apply baby powder in between coats to seal the color. However, if you’re looking for more of a matte look, apply the baby powder last; use a very light amount and apply it using a soft tissue. Not only will this set your lips, but it will reduce the shine, offering a matte appearance.
3.) Lash extension
Make your lashes look longer and fuller by mixing baby powder into the process. To achieve this, curl your lashes and apply a coat of mascara. Then take a clean brush and apply baby powder to your lashes. Add one or two more coats of mascara for lashes that are fuller and more plump.

4.) Eyebrow plumping
Similar to extending your lashes with baby powder, brushing baby powder into your eyebrows while penciling them in will create fuller and plumper brows.
5.) Makeup baking
Instead of using expensive translucent powders to bake your makeup, turn to an inexpensive product with many household uses. Dust it to the sections of your face you would like to bake like any regular makeup powder and then let it sit for 5-10 minutes before dusting it off.
6.) Face shine removal
As a moisture absorbent, baby powder is a wonderful alternative to blotting sheets. Even better, it won’t remove your makeup in the process.
7.) Dry shampoo alternative
Dry shampoo can become expensive really quickly. The moisture absorbing qualities of baby powder work just as well on the oil produced by hair. By dividing your hair into sections and applying a light amount at the roots, it’s a simple, cheap alternative.
8.) Waxing aid
What if there were a way to make waxing less painful and more effective? Well, there is now. Applying baby powder to your skin before waxing helps protect it from feeling irritated later. The hair itself is removed much more easily, as well.
9.) Sand removal
The worst part of a beach day is all the sand that comes home with you. Removing that sand becomes even more problematic. Believe it or not, baby powder makes this problem so much easier. Apply it to the parts of your skin that the sand is clinging to and watch as it becomes that much simpler to dust off.
10.) Inflamed and irritated skin soothing
Last, but certainly not least, the use we all know baby powder for. However, it’s not just for babies, it has soothing qualities for everyone. And with Mummy’s Miracle Delicate Baby Cornstarch Powder, relieve your skin without fearing the negative side effects of using talc.
