We're all familiar with the term "baking." We bake cakes, cookies, pies, and sometimes we even bake our own skin when we fall asleep in the hot sun for too long. Now, baking (also referred to as "cooking") your makeup has been getting a lot of buzz in the beauty world, cropping up on YouTube tutorials, and celebrities like Kim Kardashian. Baking your makeup is a technique that uses your own body to help set your base makeup to establish a smooth, creaseless finish, and to highlight the high points of the face – hence the term "baking" (only your face is the oven). Ready to try it out for yourself? Check out our steps and products that will help you get that flawless matte finish.

1 True Match Super Blendable Foundation - Perfect Beige
To start off the "baking" process, hydrate the area around your eyes with moisturizer to help plump it up, minimizing the appearance of fine lines or creases. Follow it up by applying a light-weight foundation or tinted moisturizer to perfect your base.

2 VISIBLE LIFT® CC EYE - CONCEALER LIGHT
Apply a thick layer of concealer in an upside down triangle under your eyes (or other areas if you want fuller coverage) and blend edges with a damp makeup sponge so they disappear into your already applied foundation.

DUST ON POWDER
Apply a healthy coat of loose face powder (a shade or two lighter than your skin tone) over the entire patch of concealer with a fluffy eye shadow brush to set the base makeup.

4 TRUE MATCH® MINÉRALTM GENTLE MINERAL POWDER- SOFT IVORY
Dampen a wedge sponge with setting spray then dip the sponge into the translucent powder to pack the powder over the area where concealer was applied. Allow the powder to sit for about 5 to 10 minutes. Use a clean makeup brush to dust away the powder and voila! You're baked.
