How To Bake Your Makeup

03 September 2015   |   2:52 pm

In today’s post, I will be showing you how to ‘bake’ your under eye makeup which will leave you with a flawless finish.

Baking your makeup is very very simple and won’t take out time from your makeup routine. Baking or “cooking” makeup began as an old-school drag makeup technique used to set concealer and highlight the face all in one go. The tools for the job are a loose setting powder (I am using the Sasha Buttercup Setting Powder), a high-coverage concealer (I’m using LA Girl Pro concealer in Toffee) and a sponge for blending.


Here, I have applied my concealer and blended it in under my eyes, on my forehead and on my chin.

This is the Sasha Buttercup Setting Powder. It’s a yellow translucent powder which can be used to set your whole face or just your concealer. Next to it is my Beauty Blender which is the best thing that I has ever happened to me.


Here, I have applied the powder to the places I want to highlight. Now to ‘bake’ the makeup, all you have to do is wait. Allow the powder to sit on your face for about 15 – 20mins. In the time that it takes to bake my face, I usually do my eye makeup.

After that, I brush off all the excess powder and continue with my face makeup. The result is a better highlight and coverage under my eyes and a flawless finish.


Here is a picture of my face with flash. The powder has no flashback and it blended in nicely.


I hope you learned something from this post! You can buy the Sasha Buttercup Setting Powder HERE at BeautyRevNG.

Stay fab.
