Pure excitement—it’s what you would have seen all over my face when I added the Freshly Baked + Glowing Collection kit from Sigma Beauty (Level 2, West) to my collection of beauty products. If you’re a die-hard beauty lover, you’ll know exactly the emotion I’m talking about!
What is baking and strobing?
Cosmopolitan has great breakdowns of both techniques.
According to Cosmopolitan, baking:
…refers to letting translucent powder sit on your face for five to 10 minutes, which allows the heat from your face to set your base foundation and concealer, and then dusting it off your face, leaving you with a creaseless, flawless finish.
It’s a fun term for highlighting, basically. Forget everything you learned about contouring (it was hard to master, anyway). Extra highlighting will give you a dewy, shimmery, more youthful glow.
How will the new Sigma brushes help?
Here is how Sigma carefully crafted each multi-functional brush to simplify and enhance the baking and strobing technique.
F06 – Powder Sweep™: This small powder brush is designed to sweep excess powder from under the eyes and can also be used to highlight the cheekbones and nose.
F42 – Strobing Fan™: This fan-shaped highlighting brush is designed to flawlessly apply and diffuse powder and cream products.
F79 – Concealer Blend Kabuki™: This medium- sized kabuki brush is designed to blend concealer under the eyes, and it gives a full-coverage finish to the skin.
F89 – Bake Kabuki™: Exclusively from Sigma, this angled kabuki brush has a flat edge designed to apply product right up to the lower lash line.
P89 – Bake Precision™: A smaller version of the F89, this precision brush has the same angled head and flat side to apply concealer right under the eye.
