The Genius of Concealer Cooking

As ladies, we share and dish fun sayings and style swag with Drag Queens and our fab gay brethren. But the genius of applying makeup—particularly “cooking concealer” as seen on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’—and recently highlighted on Birchbox is beyond invaluable and one of the many priceless perks of the bond.

The cooking makeup method applies to adding warmth and smoothness to your face with your own body heat. No stove or conventional oven required—it’s all beauty!

Here’s how it works:

After you apply your concealer to your t-zone and under-eye area, instead of quickly blending in, let it sit for a five minutes. As the moisture from the air permeates your face, your body heat melts the product into your skin for maximum glow and coverage. After the quick wait, gently blend into your skin and move to the next step.
