This Full-Coverage Foundation Hack Is Going Viral on TikTok, So I Put It to the Test

Jessica Harrington

I typically apply my makeup products in the conventional order: primer, foundation, concealer, setting powder. I've never really had the urge to stray from the beaten path until I saw a TikTok video by makeup artist Sasha of @sashainspires. In the video, she mixes her foundation with - yes, with - her setting powder to create the fullest-coverage finish I've ever seen. So I attempted the makeup hack myself.

For this beauty experiment, I first primed my face with the Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Pore Minimizing Primer ($32). Then I used the new Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Foundation ($40) and my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder ($39), which is the powder Sasha used, and attempted to copy her technique to a T.
