What Is Baking Your Makeup?
Baking is a technique where a loose powder, talcum powder, or translucent powder is used in a good amount under the eyes.
This powder is left to sit under your eyes for 5 to 10 minutes after you have done your concealer and foundation. The technique helps in setting your foundation and concealer. It absorbs any excess oil from under your eyes.
After a few minutes, brush away all the powder and you get a flawless, neat look.
How To Bake?
Baking your face is no science. Even if you are new to makeup, it is an easy technique to follow. You can use a loose powder or translucent powder to bake your under eyes.
After applying your concealer and foundation, apply a layer of loose powder or translucent powder under your eyes. Keep it for 10 minutes and then dust off the powder.
You can also apply the powder underneath your cheeks. This will help in popping out your contour. Just take some powder on the brush and apply it under your cheekbones. Let it sit for some time and then brush off.
