Goodbye Baking, Hello Sandbagging!

Baking, sandbagging, contouring, highlighting, and the beauty list goes on and on and on… The latest beauty trick that’s trending among makeup artists at the moment is sandbagging.

A while ago, Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist, Mario Dedivanovic, revealed the technique that prevents your makeup from creasing and lipstick from bleeding. The reality TV star's make-up artist Mario uploaded the sandbagging method on his Instagram, and we haven't stopped watching it since then.

Sandbagging involves dabbing heavy powder under your eyes and around the lips using a beauty blender to create a "dam" that would prevent your makeup from running or "flooding." There’s nothing new to the technique as it’s a little similar to baking (which sort of revolves around highlighting using loose powder), however, sandbagging is just creating a physical barrier -using powder- to set your makeup in and prevent smudging.

YouTube sensation Wayne Goss explains the sandbag technique in the video below.
