Do you have not a clue??? Neither did I, until this morning, when my friend Linda Levy asked me if I have tried it. I couldn't possibly, since I somehow missed the newest beauty fad to hit the blogosphere.

So what's it all about???
Face "Baking" is not new. It's origins are in the drag community. The purpose is to create a long lasting more flawless finish, to areas that one wants to highlight.

What remains does appear flawless.
Here's the thing...these are very young chickadee's...How on earth does this translate to a more mature face?
I know I do almost everything to avoid powder these days, so it's hard to imagine how baking would be an advantage to fine lines in the delicate eye area.
So what do you think? Just another gimmicky colossal waste of time for the beauty obsessed with too much time on their hands?
Of course, just for fun and to assuage my curiosity, I'm going to have to try it. If you are very, very lucky, I will share the before and after with you, though at this moment, all I can thing of at the moment is Bette Davis in Sweet Baby Jane...
