We can never get enough of upcoming makeup trends and techniques. Contouring, Strobing and now Baking. I am sure you came across makeup baking over the internet, so what is it? and how do you do it?
Baking makeup has been popular in the drag community for years and is even used by Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist (Mario) . To “bake your makeup” means to let your concealer sit on your face for 10 to 20 minutes before blending it, so that your own body heat enables the makeup to melt into your skin and cause it to change color and texture.
Step two: dab a thick, creamy concealer in a layer under the eyes and moving towards the temples, blending with a sponge.
Step four: dust translucent powder over the concealed under-eye, to set.
Step five: now that you’ve pre-concealed, you can bake. Dampen a sponge, dip it into more powder and with a suitably heavy-hand, apply a layer under the eyes
Step six: wait for your face bake for anywhere between 15 to 20 minutes.
Step seven: With a clean fluffy brush, dust away any excess from your under-eyes.
You can just forget about all the powder and pre concealing and just apply primer, foundation just like you regularly do, go with your normal makeup routing. apply your under-eye concealer in a sideways triangular shape while staying in the cheekbone area. let your concealer sit for at least 10 to 20 minutes. Use the time to line your lips, style your hair, or fill in your brows. Then Blend 🙂
