The beauty world is on fire with beauty techniques springing up everyday.

Before now 'highlighting and contouring' were the hottest techniques only to be displaced by 'strobing' and now 'baking' or letting your skin 'cook' is here!

'Baking', or letting your makeup 'cook' is the hottest makeup technique although it's a term that has been used in the drag community for many years. It's basically a way to set the foundation into the skin to last longer which reduces constant powder reapplication through the day.

This technique has been used by makeup artist; Mario Dedivanovic on Kim Kardashian many times (remember he made the highlight and contour trend popular with the famous Kim K couture chart image)

Although some MUAs think it may be too harsh and heavy, but beauty vlogger and make-up artist Wayne Goss agrees with the technique! In his words, "Bake under your cheekbones or on your nose, as opposed to under the eyes, where people tend to have more lines",  he told Refinery 29. "You don't have to bake to the same intensity that you see on YouTube. Balance it out, so you don't have too much texture on the skin"

If you love you some beauty adventure, watch and learn how to in few easy steps in the tutorial above.
