Let’s take a break from the kitchen oven and head to the makeup vanity. Here, we’ll apply the so-called “baking” technique that sets and blends concealer like a slice of pie. Originally used by drag queens who performed under hot stage lights, “baking” had a recent Instagram appearance à la Kim Kardashian and her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. Now, famous beauty gurus and makeup enthusiasts are stocking up these makeup tips and tricks. Read below to achieve poreless under eyes:
Say yes to skin care: As the skin under the eyes are the most sensitive, use a hydrating eye cream to prevent your skin from drying out.
Hello, concealer: Gently pat on your best concealer in the shape of an upside down triangle. Cream concealers work best with the “baking” technique.
Blend me away: Use a moistbeautyblender to blend out your concealer using an upward motion. Make sure fine lines are gone, or else “baking” will make them more prominent.
Pack on the goods: With a slightly damp makeup sponge, pack on a thick layer of translucent powder.
Time to Bake! Let the powder “cook” on your face for 10-30 minutes. This is the perfect time to apply your eye makeup or make your brows on fleek, as the excess powder will pick up any fallout.
Bye bye, dust: Now, dust off the powder using your favorite Luxie fluffy brush
