I learned a really good tip. Excuse me if everyone knows this already but I honestly didn't. I learned that putting talcum powder under your eyelashes makes them fuller and longer. Mine are dark but not full nor that long. I tried doing this and it's made such a difference they look like I have extensions!! This is just normal mascara so not bulky mascara or anything fancy. Thought I'd share if you wanted your eyelashes more prominent without the expense of eyelash extensions. See pic (excuse dodgy selfie of eye!)
Talc has been connected to cancer, so I wouldn't want to put that near my eyes (or anywhere on my body), and baby powders with cornstarch and talc apparently can cause lung damage if inhaled. Even if it doesn't go on the skin, it gets mixed with the mascara - and surely I am not the only one who prods myself in the eye with the mascara wand sometimes.
I would rather get a better mascara or use a different product. I recommend tightlining as well. Tinting your lashes also make them look longer.
