Makeup junkies, there's a new, or not so new trick in town.
Every so often, a new makeup trick pops up on the scene. First it was contouring, then highlighting, then baking and now sandbagging. I mean seriously, will we be able to keep up with all the new tricks in another year or so? I guess time will tell.
Of course, Kim Kardashian's makeup artist put this trick on the map after posting the technique just in time for summer. Similar to the baking technique, sandbagging is all about absorbing oils and grease from the face via setting a powder on top of your foundation.
According to Marie Claire, 'All you have to do is use a sponge to cake on loose powder over foundation, focusing specifically on the areas underneath the eyes and around the bottom edges of the lips. After the powder is applied, you wait a few minutes for it to set—the idea being that it absorbs oils from the skin and ensures that those areas will stay ultra-smooth and matte throughout the day.'
While this trend isn't technically new, it's new to most, so we are going to pretend it is. This technique not only absorbs oil, but it sets makeup and ensures your makeup won't bleed outside of the lines. Talk about heaven sent. If this technique sounds like it's up your alley and you're in need of absorbing some access oils, keep scrolling and check out the brief tutorial seen below.
