Sandbag Technique

What does the Sandbag Technique do? When you work super-hard on your makeup, the last thing you want is it to smear an hour later. No thanks!  It will keep your makeup from smudging and creasing, though it does have a bit of an unfortunate name. It’s called sandbagging – or the Sandbag Technique. Sandbag Technique 2 (2)

It stops eyeshadow, kohl pencils and mascara from smearing onto the lower lash line. This will includes lower mascara too! Its really very similar to “baking” but with this technique you are going right to the lower lash line. As far up as you can go. Then allow it to sit for a while, then brush off. NOTHING will smear, smudge or move again! Promise!

It’s pretty easy to do, too. Once you’ve applied your concealer and foundation, put some loose powder onto a sponge or Beauty Blender. Apply the powder under your eyes close to your lower lash line. Then, do the rest of your makeup. The powder absorbs the oil in your skin and creates a sort-of dam, keeping makeup from smearing into it. Finally, brush off the excess powder.

So, how is sandbagging different than baking? Makeup artist Wayne Goss explains it really well in his video tutorial. This technique is helpful for lower eyelash makeup — mascara, liner, etc. — so you want to get SUPER close to the lash line. That’s really where it differs from baking. Baking also has more of a highlight effect, where as with sandbagging, you really are just trying to keep other makeup out.
