I am guessing that you have heard of contouring and are getting to grips with strobing, however, have you ever heard or tried ‘baking’ your makeup? This means letting translucent powder sit on your face for five to 10 minutes, which allows the warmth from your skin to set your foundation and concealer. This will leave you with a creaseless, flawless finish. Baking has been around for a while and becoming more and more popular.

Here is how you too can pull off poreless skin and lighten your eye:

1. Moisturise your eye area. Apply an eye cream around your eye area to moisturise your skin and plump it up, minimizing the appearance of any fine lines or creases.

2. Apply concealer under your eyes. While concealer usually contains oils and has a tendency to crease, it won’t if it’s set correctly. Apply it upward from the apples of your cheeks toward the temples all the way underneath your eye. Then, blend it in with a damp sponge or dry brush.

3. Add more concealer. After you apply the second layer of concealer, blend it in again with your damp makeup sponge or dry brush. Make sure to cover and smooth out all the creases before setting your concealer in the next step.

4. Dust on translucent powder. Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to apply translucent powder over the entire area of concealer to set the base makeup.

5. Now, “bake” your makeup. Use a wedge sponge and dampen it with a setting spray. Then, dip the wedge into the translucent powder you used in step four to pack the loose powder generously over the area where you applied the concealer. Leave the product on for five to 10 minutes.

6. Dust it off. Using the same fluffy eye shadow brush from step four and a pressed powder swirl the fluffy eye shadow brush over the formula and dust away the powder as you add more coverage to blend any harsh edges.

Happy Baking!
