Baking is an age-old technique. It is when you allow your highlight and contour powders to “bake” or sit on your skin for a brief period of time (typically about 10-15 minutes) so that your own body heat helps it to set. You dust off the excess.
Don’t just use any setting powders, which can leave layers of white on top of your skin. When it comes to locking in your makeup, it’s best to stick with setting powders that match your skin tone.
This is the key to achieving a good makeup look. When you don’t use the correct powder for your skin tone, you risk looking like Casper the friendly ghost. So, it’s best you go for your shade.
