What is baking

Many people may associate baking with the kitchen, the oven, and delicious pastries. "Interestingly, the baking technique uses a similar concept: it's a process where your body's natural heat fixes makeup with a layer of loose powder," explains Maria Rincon Djuro, professional makeup artist at KIKO Milano.

"Usually, a generous layer of loose powder is applied to the skin under the eyes, T-zone, and areas of the face that we want to highlight, and we leave it on for a few minutes," the expert adds. During this time, your body heat helps to "securely fix" the makeup. After that, you should remove the excess powder.

Why this technique is not for everyone

It is important to note that makeup is not for everyone. "Sometimes baking accentuates wrinkles and dries out the skin," Ceciliato explains. Therefore, baking should be approached with caution for those with dry skin, as well as rashes on the cheekbones and under the eyes.

Then apply cream or liquid-based makeup as usual. "This means primer, foundation, concealer, and liquid blush," Maria says.

After applying all the liquid products, you can do baking. Take a loose powder, a makeup sponge, or a dense brush and apply the product in a thick layer with light pressing movements.
