Hello my loves and how are you today? I hope you had a lovely weekend and I for one was very grateful for no school run this morning!!
Today I will be showing you a makeup technique I have stumbled upon. You may not have been aware of it but it is making waves again right now. It’s called baking makeup and I am going to show you how it’s done.
Start with a clean and moisturised face. Then go into the skin with a primer and leave for a minute. I then apply any green concealer where I might need it. I am using Barry M primer and for the green, just a palette concealer that I am not sure of the brand. Then dampen your makeup sponge lightly and apply your foundation as normal. I am currently using one of the teardrop makeup sponge, I ordered off ebay.
Let’s Start Baking Makeup
Now it’s time to bake!! Apply one layer of pretty thick concealer and I have gone for the MUA Hide and Conceal concealer. Apply a decent sized triangle under your eye and blend out with a slightly dampened sponge again. Next, apply another layer of concealer and I have used Barry M light-reflecting concealer. It’s more of a liquid and applies better on top of the MUA concealer.
Now, this second application is more of an option and isn’t required for the ‘baking’ to work but with 2 little boys and the eyes bags to match……I use two layers hahaha!!!
Now apply a first layer of powder on top of the concealer with a brush and make sure you cover all the concealer. Next you will need either your sponge damp again or better yet damp with a fixing spray and I am using the MUA fixing spray (yes I am obsessed with MUA I really am lol). LOAD the sponge with powder and really apply it!! I mean REALLY apply it.
Now you need to wait 10 minutes or so for it to ‘bake’ and I use this time to finish off my look. Then once your 10 minutes are up just dust the powder off lightly. I tend to stay in my pj’s whilst doing this as I don’t want my clothes covered in powder. It can be a little messy.
After you’ve brushed it off finish applying any blush, contour, bronzer etc, finish the powder on the rest of your face and you’re done.
