Steps To Baking your Makeup:

Step 1:

Moisturizing or hydrating your skin, to bake your makeup first you have to hydrate your face because it gives you matte look that is why moisturizing is necessary.

For Dry skin-  make sure to hydrate my under eyes so that the extra powder you are using does not settle into any wrinkles or under eye circles.

Step 2:

Apply the concealer under your eyes to conceal your dark circles, dark circles will steal all your beauty it s better to choose light color of concealer to appear it perfectly, for best look try  something creamy or thicker liquid like so it blends easily.

Now apply it in upside down triangle shape.  Using your damp cosmetic sponge, blend the product out so that it is evenly distributed blending effortlessly.

Step 3:

Using your translucent powder apply it over the concealer with a fluffy brush. The key here is to make sure you have enough powder to apply to your face where your concealer is but make sure that it can bend well and remove extra powder away from your face.

Step 4:

Now it’s time to Bake / Cook your makeup,  Using cosmetic sponge, dampen with a setting spray or mineral mist and then dip the sponge into your translucent powder then Pack the loose powder generously over the area that you applied with your concealer.

If you are using a pressed compact, you may need to tap your brush into the product a lot to pick up product.  Wait 5 – 10 minutes while the powder sits and bakes.  During this time you can start working on your eye makeup.

Step 5:

Use your fluffy brush, simply dust off the product on the face while blending to set your makeup.

After you complete your makeup you will find that your under eyes highlighted without using any glittery and shimmery effect,  What I love about looks like these is that they give you that glowy appearance.
