Baking and Shaking Make Up Trend

Baking, and no I am not talking about the Great British Bake Off, baking is a make up technique. Its been used for years by the drag queen community and has found its way down to the highstreet. It has also become more popular of late with the likes of Kim Kardashian sporting this make up technique.
This make up technique is not for the faint hearted though. It can make your skin look flawless on photos, but in real life its very obvious you are wearing A LOT of make up. I would though give it a go as it looks great in photos.

Heres how I achieved this look. Take a cream concealer, I used Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and draw a triangle shape under the eyes, a line down the center of the nose, cupids bow, forehead and under the cheekbones.
My impression of a Badger

Blend with a sponge, I used my Beauty Blender (see my review) or for a budget sponge Real Techniques Miracle sponge is a good alternative, and then press transulent powder over the top, I used Illamasqua translucent loose powder and let it sit on there and then "BAKE" said in my best Sue Perkins impression (this is the baking process) and get on with applying the rest of your make up. At the end take a Fan brush or a big fluffy brush and sweep off the excess, then you are ready for any photo opptunity that may come your way.

Been aware though this can be abit addictive if you like wearing alot of make up, you will like this as your skin is FLAWLESS.

So, thats my take on Baking, a classic make up technique. Have you tried this look yet? Why not have a go, afterall its only make up.
