Contouring, Strobing, Baking,  the terms may change but the techniques are not exactly new.  With sites like Instagram and You-tube we have more access to stars, makeup artists, bloggers etc. and are seeing a revival of old makeup tricks.  Way back when some of these techniques were not used in “everyday life”.  Baking is heavy and was typically used for TV and Stage while also being very popular within the Drag community. With changes in the beauty culture, certain methods have become increasingly popular and taken on a new life.

So what the heck is baking anyway? Baking is basically a technique of highlighting, but without the shimmer. When we highlight, the goal is to have luminescence and glow. With baking we want to brighten and give long-lasting full coverage.  Since baking gives a matte finish, heavy powder can accentuate dryness and fine lines.  Be sure your face is very well hydrated before you start. 
 
So let’s take a look on the method and products I used to test out this trend; 

Baking Makeup Tutorial

The two main products needed for baking are concealer and translucent powder. I’m using mainly products from Amazing Cosmetics which can be found at Ulta Beauty. The Amazing Concealer has a nice creamy formula that provides full coverage and blends easily. I applied one layer of concealer using Tan Golden  and a second layer using Light Caramel.  
 
The Amazing Cosmetics Velvet Mineral Powderset is a translucent powder that sets makeup and absorbs excess oil, this powder won’t settle into fine lines and leaves a silky finish.

    Thank you, Mercedes. I had been wondering what baking was in the makeup world but I haven’t had the time to find out. Now I know

  • Interesting. I might give this a try. I also love Amazing Cosmetics.

  • So true when I lived and worked in Miami the men were all over this concept. They put Kim K to shame on some contour too but they didn’t have access to reality TV heheh. So I have done this and never gave it a second thought, funny how the internet makes old things new again ehhe. I have found that I love the Laura Mercier Setting Powder for my “baking needs”. I will look into this product though, I am a sucker for new things ehhe

  • Looking fabulous girl. I am working on this post right now. 🙂 We used to do baking back in the day and so interesting that it has made its way back to being popular again.

    I’ll bake different areas of my face, but have yet to do it under the eyes. Once you get a little bit of texture change after like 35, everything just accentuates the lines. I have to try this tho even though I can’t imagine having that much product on my lines.

  • I had an artist do this on me and i LOVED the outcome!

  • Great post girl. 🙂 Learned something new

  • Aleya Bamdad

    I want to start doing this, mainly for my eye area. I need a lot of help there and this seems so easy.

  • I haven’t tried this technique yet, but it may not work around my eyes where I need to brighten. I’m noticing a lot of fine lines. It looks great on you, and I love the matte but brightened look!

  • I’ve *tried* it, but I didn’t do the second layer of concealer or the setting spray. Maybe that would help! I do like it when I have time to let my concealer warm up to my skin before blending and setting, and tend to get better results that way.

  • I haven’t tried it yet, because I worry about it being too much.
