What Is Baking?- Makeup baking focuses on setting. It’s all about applying cream concealer under the eyes before adding a thick layer of powder on top. You let the powder set the areas that you’ve highlighted with concealer for 10-15 minutes (also known as the baking process) before dusting it off. Presto, you have a flawlessly set look that’s highlighted in all the right places.

According to Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist Mario Dedivanovio baking is a makeup trick that’s been used for years.

“Baking’ or ‘cooking’ is a very old makeup technique. It’s basically a heavier way of applying concealer and setting it with loose powder. [The move] is used a lot for TV makeup, stage, drag queens, etc. It gives a very matte, full-coverage finish to the skin.” – via

Makeup baking is all about a flawless application of makeup. It brings out your strongest features and makes you look like the best version of yourself.
