The “Baking” or “Cooking” technique is one that I had been playing with for years .. before it became a “trend”. I would love to use powder to bump up & intensify highlights at the sides of the nose (to make it look thinner) and along the underside of my cheek contour to really carve it out further and kick up the contrast! There are SO many benefits to “baking” your face:
– PREVENTS CONCEALER FROM CREASING
– LOCKED IN / BULLETPROOF / LONGER-LASTING MAKEUP
– BUMPS UP INTENSITY OF HIGHLIGHT + BRIGHTNESS
– BUMPS UP CONTOUR CONTRAST / REALLY CARVES OUT YOUR CHEEKBONES
– MINIMIZES THE APPEARANCE OF PORES (especially because you’re applying loose powder with a dampened beauty blender sponge)
Here, I’ll show you:
I will say that in theory, it might seem like A LOT of makeup but I will say that the concealer I use is very thin in consistency so it doesn’t ever end up looking cakey. If you have dry skin, you may benefit in finishing this all off with a few mists of MAC Fix+. If you have oilier skin, you know that anything will look dewy on your skin in about an hour or so!

I recently came across a photo-morph of Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox by artist Pedro Berg Johnsen online and was mesmerized. Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox have constantly been compared to one another for their looks and overall bad-girl vibe. I wanted to recreate the look but also have fun and turn this into a little bit of a transformation of my own. In the past, I’ve transformed myself into Iggy Azalea and even, Eminem.
