A few weeks ago we told you about a new trend called Strobing. Well the beauty world is ever evolving & there’s already a new trend on the block known as baking. Prepare to get your life huni, beauty writer Essence Gant breaks it down
To every woman, girl, boy, and man who’s waited tirelessly for the next big moment in slayage, the time has come.
Brace yourselves and enter the world of “baking,” also called “cooking,” your face.
Popularized by drag queens, baking vanishes fine lines, creases, and pores, giving makeup a flawless finish.
To bake your face, go about your beauty prep and apply foundation as usual.
On her YouTube channel Curls N Lipstick, Canadian makeup artist Karina W completed her full face and saved the baking for last.
After your normal makeup routine, apply concealer under your eyes and upward toward your temples.
Your concealer should be two shades lighter than your skin.
Pat the concealer into the skin with a sponge until it is fully blended.
Apply a heavy layer of translucent powder on top of the blended concealer and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
You should look like this.
As the powder sits, it works with your skin’s natural heat to melt (aka “bake”) the concealer into your face, filling in any creases and lines.
Once the 10 minutes are up, use short flicking motions to sweep away the powder with a blush brush.
