Moisturise Your Under Eye

It is important to moisturize your face and eyes before putting on any makeup product. The moisturizer will hydrate your skin and keep it away from dryness and flakiness. It is difficult to apply makeup on dry skin as you won’t be able to blend the products properly. Since baking is mostly concentrated on the eye area; you need to apply an eye cream under your eyes using your ring finger. Gently dab the cream under the eyes and avoid rubbing it as the skin below the eyes is very delicate and sensitive.

Apply A Primer Then Foundation

You should always apply the primer first before getting your hands on the foundation. A primer will not only provide the much-needed hydration to the skin but will also create a barrier between your skin and the products applied on top of it. Take the foundation and put it in dots on your skin and then gently blend it using a beauty blender or stippling brush. If you’re using a blender then avoid rubbing it on the skin and instead tab the product gently.

Concealing Under Eye Area

Apply the concealer in a dot or inverted triangle form and then blend it using a sponge or a brush.

Now take out some loose powder in the lid and dab your sponge or brush in the powder, and directly apply under your eyes. Make sure you have taken and applied the generous amount of powder that you don’t have to rub or dab in. let the powder sit on the under-eye area on top of your foundation and concealer. You can even apply the powder on the bridge of your nose or under the hollow of your cheekbones.

The Baking Process

Once you have applied the powder to your face, let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Your natural body heat will make the powder bake or oxidize. The powder will also soak up any extra oil and will keep the makeup intact beneath it. You can meanwhile finish your makeup on the other parts like filling in the brows or styling hair etc.
