Sandbagging Is The Perfect Preparation For Sunshine

In case you haven’t heard of the term ‘sandbagging’ do not panic – you haven’t accidentally stumbled across a reference to a dodgy porn site. Although it sounds a tad bizarre at best, sandbagging is a beauty craze that has been on the scene for the past year. This beauty technique hyped for being the next level of contouring, promises to banish oily areas of skin, whilst keeping your makeup Photoshop perfect all day long, even on the beach. As the warm weather is finally upon us, this news couldn’t be better – because, let’s be honest, mattifying primer is good, but it doesn’t have the ability to fight endless rays of scorching sunshine; the sweat always wins in the end.

Find out how to apply the technique like a pro:

Following Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic’s sandbagging tutorial, beauty vloggers have filled YouTube with awesome tutorials on achieving this technique.

Contouring doesn’t have to involve a painstaking number of hours with hideous clown-like results. Once you have mastered the hack you will find it takes very little time and the results are well worth it. The same can be said of sandbagging.

As long as you follow the instructions, the technique is quick and simple.

All you need to do is grab a sponge to apply powder over your foundation, making sure you pay attention to oil-prone areas such as the T-zone, under the eyes and the lips.

Allow a few minutes for the powder to set. This will soak up your skin’s natural oils, providing you with the ultimate matte picture perfect makeup – and it will last all day. Sandbagging joy does not end there – it also prevents your eye and lip makeup from bleeding over the lines. Let’s face it, everyone loves the sun, but no one wants the ‘I let my little sister or my slightly mischievous fella apply my makeup today’ look.

On a separate note, should you despise the whole contouring thing, this gem of a beauty trick can also bypass contouring. This hack instantly adds a hint of effortless highlighting. #Sunshineaces!
