The NEW Contouring
You’ve probably nailed contouring and wrapped your head around strobing – now the new beauty recipe everyone’s talking about is "baking". The airbrushed-effect technique has nothing to do with cakes or the kitchen, and everything to do with highlighting, amplifying, and achieving everlasting makeup. This trick includes a hella lot of concealer and loose powder hacks to get an uber-matte complexion, but don't worry – as always, we have your back! Check out this super simple step-by-step…
1. PREPARATION IS KEY
Get the base wrong, and the whole cake falls apart. #nightmare. Start by glazing on our Roller Eye Gel under the eye. The green tea and guarana-enriched potion diminishes dark circles, reduces puffiness and makes sure your makeup stays put.
2. CREAMY CONCEALER
Wanna know this recipe's secret ingredient? Of course you do! Our PS… concealer stick is what you need for full coverage. For maximum effect, apply the concealer in a triangle shape under the eye. Then blend out with our blending sponge.
3. TOP UP
No, we haven’t repeated ourselves... In the same way extra frosting makes baking sweeter (!), indulging in a second coat of concealer will give you longer-lasting satisfaction and a flawless finish.
4. BAKING POWDER
Usually this would be the final step, but there are a LOT of steps to this technique (worth it!) Take a small amount of our finishing powder (we don’t want you to be cake-faced – pun intended), and apply over the concealed area. This makes sure everything holds in place. The fun continues…
5. ICING ON THE CAKE
Time for the icing on the cake (the most important part, obvs)! Start by dampening a triangle sponge and then pressing it into translucent powder. Apply in the same area as the concealer, and let it sit for 5-10 mins. Oven timer on?
6. WHISK AWAY THE EXCESS
Whisk away the excess powder with light strokes, and blend away any harsh lines as you go with our PS… PRO blending brush.
7. BOOM! READY TO SERVE!
It’s time to quit contouring, stop strobing and begin baking – ‘cause this is THE way to pore-free, picture-perfect skin. Most importantly? We’re brightening up your eye area to give you that wide-awake glow. With all this baking talk, we’re getting pretty hungry now... Cake, anyone?
