Baking has been around for years. First used while doing drag makeup to keep everything on (since men usually have oilier skin). Baking can look cakey up close and in person. So it's best for either photos or nights out with low lighting only. It's too much for every day.

Some beautiful pictures and ideas thanks

Love... "The Lob"... Too HOT!!!
