Why “Baking” Your Face Should Become Your Next Must-Do Makeup Method
It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian-West has top-notch makeup looks. And, as evident by her barrage of daily selfies, her makeup stays flawless all day, every day.
But just how does she get that matte finish? Mario Dedivanovic, the man behind Kim’s famous face, swears by baking his client’s makeup.
The term “baking” your face isn’t an entirely a new idea, as it was popular in the drag community long before Kimmy Kim came along and helped popularize it. This technique uses the heat from your face to "cook" on the makeup.
It’s a relatively easy process, but like most recent trends, it requires a lot of product. Regardless, you should still attempt it ASAP. And, to help you bake like a pro, I've put together a quick how-to guide.
1). Dab On Eye Cream: Hydrating your eyes is a key aspect to getting rid of fine lines or creases.
4). “Bake” Your Makeup: Let the thick layer of translucent powder sit for 5 to 10 minutes. The heat from your face, trapped under the powder, will effectively melt the product onto your face.
5). Dust Away Excess Powder: Using the same brush that you used to apply the powder, gently remove the excess product.
