Cooking, baking, just being in the kitchen is not one of my strong points.
However, when it comes to the latest makeup method trend called “baking,” I have actually become quite good at it because of it’s very clear recipe (steps!).
Cooking doesn’t come naturally to me unless it is a box of brownies or a frozen meal in a bag or I found the directions on Pinterest!
The makeup method “baking,” refers to letting light colored powder sit on your face for 5 to 10 minutes, which allows the heat from your face to set your foundation and concealer. Then after your timer goes off, you dust the excess off your face, which should leave you with a creaseless & flawless finish. I mean just check out my undereye beds above, pretty good right??
But to be quite honest, this method isn’t that new at all. It’s been around the drag queen world for awhile. Those queens have mad makeup skillzzzz. And Mario Dedivanovic who is Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist, uses this technique on her a lot, so you know it’s worth a shot.
Here is the recipe for “baking” your face in a few easy steps plus the ingredients I used at the bottom of post…
Yes, this method takes some patience but the payoff is really huge.
And you have to reallllly lay on the powder to make it work. (you can use loose or pressed, just as long as it’s a lot lighter than your natural skin tone) I know it’s hard to tell from my photos how heavy the powder is, but it’s piled on thick!!
