IDEAL FOR CONCEALING DARK CIRCLES, FIXING MAKE-UP, ETC. IF ITS FOLLOWERS ATTRIBUTE A MULTITUDE OF POSITIVE POINTS TO IT, THE BAKING TECHNIQUE FACES DETRACTORS. EXPLANATIONS.
A fabulous solution responding to several make-up problems at the same time, baking has won over.
This singular technique takes its name from the English verb “to bake” – literally saying “to cook”, in English -.
What is baking for dark circles?
The power of baking? Conceal dark circles and fine lines … and fix make-up with a fantastic cosmetic: translucent powder!
For a sublime look and long-lasting eye make-up, start by applying your concealer as usual, from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye.
Take the translucent powder with a brush and tap it over the concealer.
It is crucial when it is also necessary to make sure that the concealer has not ‘sunk’ in the fine lines, is not frozen etc … under penalty of further emphasizing the imperfections.
Then, we go to the baking itself: we apply a generous layer of translucent powder roughly. And we let it sit for about 10 minutes.
It is time it takes for the translucent powder to melt into the skin with the help of body heat. After this time, using a dry brush, remove the excess fine powder.
The ideal? Take advantage of the exposure time to make the rest of the eye make-up: if the pigments deposited on the upper eyelids fall off, they will be removed with the excess powder … without ruining all of your make-up!
And since we took the reflex to hide our minor imperfections using concealer, we can reproduce the baking technique on all its minor imperfections!
What’s wrong with this trendy make-up technique?
The catch? After the surge of tutorials and other baking tips, the technique has been singled out.
The accumulation of quantities of cosmetics … which would prevent the skin from breathing!
Even more damaging is over-makeup in the fragile and sensitive area around the eye. In the long term, baking could thus accelerate the ageing of the skin.
As a result, we avoid repeating this technique daily. But for an evening where we have to display a fresh look, we can allow ourselves a small gap without feeling guilty!
