Baked Makeup Trio
Makeup is usually made by pressing pigments together with binding chemicals. A baked eyeshadow, blush, or highlighter, on the contrary, is literally a cream which is baked into a smooth, powdery solid by applying heat. Baked in the sun and inside ovens, these silky, velvety products shot to the forefront of beauty counters a few years ago, but few have actually figured out their benefits.
Baked makeup often has better pigment
Baked makeup doesn’t have a lot of chemicals and additives since it doesn’t need binding like pressed makeup, making the concentration of actual pigment much higher due to the absence of filler ingredients. Hence, baked products are less chalky than pressed ones and tend to have concentrated colour payoff. So, in terms of texture, baked products are easier to work with. However, it is unclear if that means they last longer, though most people suggest they do.
These products can be used wet or dry
Due to the fact that these cosmetics are originally creams and liquids, wet application is possible with them, making them very versatile. Now, wet application would yield messy results with regular pressed eyeshadow. With baked ones, it intensifies the shimmer, color, and overall vibrancy of the product while also setting it into the skin in a way that it lasts longer.
So, if you want to add some drama, all you need to do is wet your brush before dipping it into the product. Of course, you can always get the usual natural and soft eyeshadow look when you use these products dry. This gives you the advantage of using the same product in two different ways, depending on your needs.
Highlighting – is still on trend and you don’t want to miss this one.
This baked highlighting palette consists of 3 velvety brightening powders for face modeling. The product contains intensely pigmented highlighter and blush. The light, silky formula allows you to gradually build coverage from a delicate and natural glow to a more intense effect. It will add freshness and radiance to your complexion. In this range you can also buy the individual highlighters from Pierre Rene which have been swatched previously by Sugar And Spice Blog.
A lot of baked makeup is beautifully marbled and three-dimensional
If you hate flat makeup AND bright shimmer, you will find that finely-milled, beautifully mixed baked makeup is the perfect in-between. For instance, these baked highlighters have fine gold shimmer marbled through it will give your cheeks a luminous glow upon application. This multi-dimensional effect is more simply achieved with baked products.
