I’ve tried posting this picture 7 times….. Anyways guys I bought some stuff lol and I’m in love with these brushes, they’re so soft and colorful😍

Sorry dictionary, but the term “baking” has a new definition. What we normally associate with sticking a combination of eggs, sugar, and flour in the oven has now become a new beauty trend fresh off Instagram. While it originated as a theater technique to flatter complexions under hot spotlights, it was later adopted by the drag set to create a feminine face shape and make concealer last longer where it matters most. Now, baking is finally getting the attention it deserves, all thanks to celebrity makeup artists and selfie queens singing its praises. We’ve created a step-by-step tutorial that makes baking a piece of cake—plus a visual guide courtesy of Huda Kattan of Huda Beauty. But first, it’s important to see whether baking is right for you. The overall result gives a full-coverage, matte finish—so if you’re a dewy loyalist, you might want to steer clear of the bakery. Normally, the technique is better suited for a photo studio than the street, but our guide is perfect for an everyday baked look that’s totally wearable. Let’s get started! JESSICA VELEZ

STEP ONE: With your foundation and contouring already completed, apply a concealer with a sheer-to-medium level of coverage to your Triangle of Light (a V-shaped area created from the inner corner of your eye to your nostril, and from your nostril to the other corner of your eye). tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof 12-Hour Concealer and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage are great options because they’re both emollient. Then, blend the concealer using a beautyblender.

STEP TWO: Apply a loose setting powder—NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder would be perfect—to the same area you applied the concealer using a fluffy brush such as the SEPHORA COLLECTION hakuho-do + Sephora PRO Large Teardrop Pointed Powder Brush (Otsubu), and let it sit on your skin for one to three minutes. While the shade of NARS’s powder is nearly universal, deeper skin tones could switch it up with a banana-hued powder, while fairer skin tones would benefit from a powder with pink or peach undertones. For medium skin tones, stick with a translucent powder.

STEP THREE: Using the same brush as in STEP TWO, dust away the remaining setting powder that wasn’t absorbed into the skin using a light, flicking motion. OPTIONAL: for more coverage, first dip your brush into a medium-to-full coverage complexion powder, such as Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation, and then dust off the setting powder with the dipped brush. This creates an exchange and buildup of product.

STEP FOUR: Finish with a setting spray, like Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.

NOTE: To remove this buildup of product at the end of the day, we recommend a two-step cleansing routine. First, start with an oil or a balm. boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil and Clinique’s Take The Day Off Balm work wonders. Then, follow up with your favorite everyday cleanser.

Any good dupes for benefit eye bright? I'm almost out and with baby #2 almost here can't afford to splurge on more 😭

First of all, congrats mama!  Don’t forget to take a little time for yourself whenever you can!  You’ll definitely be able to find some inexpensive alternatives to Benefit Eye Bright, so no worries!

Benefit Eye Bright ($20)* is a creamy pencil used to conceal darkness around the eyes and add highlight to the brow, lid, and under eye to create the appearance of rest.  Definitely an important product for mothers, I’d say!  While I’ve found quite a few replacements, not all of them have the same pink tone - most are more nude, but they do the same job and do it well.

The closest dupe:

Sephora Collection Brow Enhancer in #01 Matte Light Pink ($12) is the most spot-on match that I know of.  It’s not quite as creamy as the Benefit one at first, but it blends beautifully and the color is perfect.  It’s a slightly chubby pencil, just like Eye Bright, and has great staying power so it won’t crease.

My #1 recommendation:

NYX Wonder Pencil ($4.50) is my top recommendation to your for what you’re using the product for.  The color itself isn’t the same, because these are more of a flesh-toned nude than pink, and these are slim pencils unlike the larger size of Eye Bright, but I’ve used these and I like them even better than the expensive Benefit one.  You can do more with these pencils, such as concealing, cleaning up rough edges, creating an ombre lip, brightening the waterline… I could go on.  They’re very inexpensive and they’re still nice and creamy and easy to blend.  They also come in different colors for different skin tones.

I also like:

Milani Brow & Eye Highlight ($6)  In this pencil you get two colors in one!  One is a glowy pink with a hint of shimmer, and the other is a matte nude.  The texture and size is very similar to Benefit Eye Bright, too!

NYX Eyebrow Push-Up Bra ($10)   The pink highlight side of this double ended pencil is really close to Eye Bright, and it comes with a brow filling pencil on one side, which could either be a good or a bad thing!

I really hope that you find something that you like!  And good luck!
