Baking: All The Info

 

Baking (or cooking) your face has recently blown up in the makeup industry. But what
some people don't realise is that it's been around for a long time and actually originates from
the drag world. The reason it is called baking is because you are essentially trapping the heat
from your face in with the loose powder and setting your foundation and concealer in place. The
best way to achieve this is with loose powder and leaving it on the skin for 5-10 minutes.

Step 1
Apply foundation and concealer as usually in the desired areas. If you are wishing to 
highlight and brighten with your concealer then apply under you eyes, center of the forehead,
down the bridge of the nose, your chin, around your mouth and you can also apply to the
tops of your cheekbones and under where your contour would be (by your jaw line).

Step 2
Take a makeup wedge or a damp beauty blender also works, and dip that into your powder.
Loose powder works best but you can also use a pressed powder of your choosing. Apply
 the powder on the area where you applied your concealer and leave for 5-10 minutes.

Step 3
Using a fluffy brush dust of the powder after the desired time. The longer that you leave 
the powder the better effect it will have on the skin and last longer.

Step 4
After you have contoured your cheekbones you can apply the powder underneath
and leave for the desired time to get a harsh and dramatic contour.

Baking will give you a flawless finish to the skin and make it last all night long!!
