When you think of baking, you may conjure images of fresh cookies and cupcakes. It's time to think again.

This super simple beauty hack has been making rounds on social media since the summer — and for good reason. All you have to do is let your under-eye makeup "bake" on your face for about 10 minutes before you blend. This allows the natural oils to more easily mix with the concealer to create a more natural look.
