We're all used to seeing pressed powders in compacts. It's functional, and it gets the job done. But, when you look at baked makeup, it's often luminous and has shimmery veins throughout. It's velvety to the touch.
That's because it's not a milled powder that's been pressed. It's actually a liquid that's been baked into solid form. You typically get less talc and more pigment. As a bonus, it has a chameleon-like quality, becoming creamy and more opaque with a spritz of water and changing right back when it dries. That means you can build up from sheer coverage and blend it easily.
Baking is being used in blushes, eyeshadows, foundations and other makeup products. You can find standouts in many great lines from the drug store up to the department store counter. Here are a few of our favorites.
