RCMA is a US professional makeup brand that has been used on sets and in theaters for years. I personally use it as a setting powder and baking product!
Baking is a new makeup technique which helps you to look like a doll and conceal all the imperfections (reddened areas, dark circles, etc.)
How to “bake” your face:
- Hydrate your face, especially the eye area.
- Apply concealer with a thick layer under your eyes, on the wings of the nose and under cheekbones.
- Apply foundation.
- Now it’s time for translucent powder! Apply it with a sponge or a brush to the areas with concealer generously. I prefer doing it with a damp sponge.
- Wait 10-15 min and wipe off the residue with a brush, when your face is “baked”
- Fix your makeup with bronzer or highlighter.
As for the powder itself:
- I’ve chosen RCMA No Color Powder. The main thing is that it should be not an HD, but a setting translucent powder, because your face would glow in the photos then.
- The fine milled powder comes easily to a sponge and suits my skin perfectly.
- It blends out very well and doesn’t whiten my face. Actually one can overdo it, but it can be fixed without much effort.
- May be used as a setting powder.
The packaging is so bad! One should transfer the powder into a small container or something, otherwise a mess is unavoidable. It’s not convenient for applying, I think.
Comparison with Morphe Banana:
1. RCMA sticks to my skin much better than Morphe Banana, but the latter doesn’t whiten my face at all and works well as finish in summertime.
2. Morphe is finer and it dusts more, but applies for baking worse.
3. Morphe comes in a more convenient packaging!
4. Verdict: RCMA is better for baking, Morphe for gorgeous finish.
