Contouring then strobing, now baking?

The makeup world is continuously evolving and we are absolutely amazed at this revived trend.

Yes – revived. The drag queen community has been using the baking technique to help set heavy stage makeup and it works – makeup is always flawless.

Baking involves using your body heat to help set makeup resulting in a smooth, crease-less finish. Even Kim Kardashian-West’s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic uses this technique!

The trick involves layering setting powder thickly and allowing it to “cook”  into your foundation and concealer. As shown in the photo from Heidi Hamoud’s YouTube tutorial, it helps highlight the covered areas – underneath eyes, forehead and chin. The result is a flawless finish with contoured cheeks.

So how do we begin?

1. Apply moisturizer, primer, and foundation. This method can be drying so the moisturizer is extremely important. You may also want to include an eye moisturizer to help hydrate the area as this method does focus on the eye area.

2. Apply concealer under the eyes. Dab on from the apples of your cheeks towards your temples. Keep going towards the hairline for some serious contour. Blend in with a damp makeup sponge.

3. Use translucent powder to set the base of the makeup.

4. To “bake” or “cook your makeup, use a wedge sponge and dampen it with a setting spray or facial mist. Then dip the sponge into the translucent powder used in Step 3 and apply it generously under eyes, chin, jawline and middle of forehead. Let it bake anywhere from 5-30 minutes. We suggest 10 minutes for great results but if you have time, go for all 30!

5. Dust off the powder with a fluffy brush. If you want to blend any rough edges, apply pressed powder on the brush and use that to dust off the translucent powder.

We love how this makeup look leaves our makeup look flawless.

Tutorial Tuesday – Dramatic Winged Eyeliner

The trick to dramatic winged eyeliner is to use a liquid eyeliner and draw the outlines first.

Start at the inner corner of your eyelid and apply a thin line towards the outer corner. (you can fill in the space later).

Then create a small wing from the bottom, outer corner of your eye towards your temple.

Keep this small as the look will be dramatic without being a thick facial stripe.

Connect the top and bottom line with a point then fill in the space.

This is a beautiful look for a night out!

Quick Beauty Tip – No Mess Mascara Application

Next time someone wants to give you their unwanted business card, don’t decline or toss it! Keep a collection of business cards in your vanity for mascara application. Since mascara should be applied last as a finishing touch,  it often can create a smudgy mess. Avoid this by placing a business card right up against your lash line. Apply mascara as usual, only the excess makeup will smudge onto the card instead of your perfectly shadowed eyelids! quicktip-business-card-lashes
