The NEW Contouring

You’ve probably mastered contouring and got your head around strobing, but the new beauty recipe everyone’s talking about is ‘baking’. The airbrushed-effect technique has nothing to do with cakes or the kitchen; instead, it has everything to do with highlighting, amplifying, and achieving everlasting make-up. The trick includes a helluva lot of concealer and loose powder hacks to get that uber-matte complexion, as always, we’ve got your back with this super simple step-by-step…

BEFORE

1. PREPARATION IS KEY

Get the base wrong and the whole cake falls apart… #nightmare. Begin by glazing on our Roller Eye Gel under the eye. The green tea and guarana enriched potion will diminish dark circles, reduce puffiness and ensure your make-up stays put. 

2. CREAMY CONCEALER 

Wanna know the secret ingredient to this recipe? 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 eye and then blend out with our blending sponge.

3. TOP UP 

No, we haven’t accidentally 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 A LOT of steps to this technique. Take a moderate amount of our finishing powder (we don’t want you to be cake faced – pun intended), and apply over the concealed area. This will ensure everything holds in place. The fun continues…

5. ICING ON THE CAKE 

Time for the icing on the cake, which is obviously the most important part. 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 poreless, picture-perfect skin. Most importantly, we’re brightening up your eye area giving you that wide-awake glow. All this baking talk, we’re pretty hungry now. Cake, anyone?
