Gary Barnes, owner of LesBijouteries.com, claims that baby powder has a better effect than most of the powders. He learned this little trick from one photographer.

Small layer of baby powder will remove unnecessary glow on face when you’re in front of a camera.

Powder absorbs the sweat from face and reduces shine, especially for people with darker skin tone because darker skin reflects more shine in front of cameras, said Gary Barnes.

Lipstick will last longer

When you need your make-up to last longer than usual, you should apply a thin layer of baby powder between two layers of lipstick. After the first layer of lipstick, place a handkerchief on lips and pick up excess, then brush to apply a thin layer of powder. Then reapply lipstick.
