What is the Baking Make-Up?

How to make the Baking Make-Up

We start from the assumption that this effect is designed for much more elaborate make-ups. Follow step-by-step this process: first, moisturize the area around your eyes with a specific product. It is highly not recommended to use face cream here.

Then, rub your face cream onto your face to create the make-up base and apply the foundation. Use a concealer that is at least 2 tones lighter than your skin tone: apply it on the face areas that require it. Apply a creamy highlighter on your cheekbones, around your eyes, on your nose and on your chin.

Now it comes the baking part: take a large amount of face powder with a wet sponge and put it on the areas you need to cover, such as on the dark circles under your eyes and on your nose, chin and cheekbones. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes, then remove the excess with a soft brush. Your make-up will last longer and your flaws will be completely hidden!
