The Most Valuable Viral TikTok Skin Care Hacks for 202228.07.2022
Every day, there is a TikTok beauty hack that people claim will make your life easier. These tips can sometimes yield worthwhile results. For example, you could add blue pigment to your foundation in order to neutralize it. Some are just too complicated or time-consuming, like mixing lubricant with your base makeup. It can be overwhelming to try and keep up with all of the new tricks, let alone figure out which ones are worth your time.
We are here to tell you the truth about these TikTok hacks. We have debunked many of them. These are the top hacks that you may have missed while scrolling through your Aboutfash.
Contouring Made Easy
Megan Lavallie, a Houston-based TikTok user, stunned the beauty world with her simple yet effective tip for contouring your skin. The short video begins with Megan Lavallie saying that there is a spot on your cheek where if you poke a hole, it would touch your eyes. She demonstrates the technique by using the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand to apply a dot in the area.
She doesn’t use the brush to sweep her contours back and forth like most people would. She focuses her blending where she added the dot. It creates the illusion that she has higher cheekbones, she says. This trick will make contouring your face a lot easier if you have ever been confused by contouring.
Blush as a Color Corrector
If you use makeup products correctly, it is possible to save time and money by using them for multiple purposes. Tammi Clarke, a London-based content creator, was inspired by one of her her followers to use color corrector as a cream cheek blush. The Girl HD Pro Concealer Orange Corrector is her choice. This product is popular because it is great for darker skin tones, and it is also affordable. It is a great product that can be used in small amounts.
Clarke applies a few drops of bright orange pigment to her cheeks. Then she buffs it with a large fluffy brush along her cheekbones. Clarke’s cheeks look stunning with the soft peach blush. She shares her hack: “I love this hack because it allows me to find new ways to use products that you might already own but have never considered using in that way.”
Use eyeliner to contour your nose
Amina Keita, a Maryland resident, shared a simpler way to manage your nose contour using an eyeliner pencil. To draw precise lines, she uses the Wet N Wild Color Icon Kohl Liner pencil in Simma Brown Now. She first fell in love with the product as she couldn’t find dark contour products that would suit her skin tone. It was also great for her lips and eyebrows, and she eventually tried it on her nose.
She shares that she realized it was not only the perfect shade but also affordable and allowed her to have more control. Even though I own many contour products, this method is still my favorite. With the product, she swears that her nose contour is flawless every time.
Color Your Lashes
In 2020, colorful lashes were everywhere on social media. Suzan Dabas, a Toronto-based user wanted to experiment with the trend. Instead of coloring every lash, she uses bright yellow eyeliner on a few hairs to create a striped effect. To paint her lashes, she uses the Matte Lashes Pastel WaterActivated Palette with a small brush. Because the lash can be repainted back to its original color after it has been rinsed, she chose a water activated pigment. This allows her to try the trend without damaging her falsies.
Brightening the Undereye
Concealer can be used to highlight your undereyes, cover up acne or as your foundation. What if you used concealer white to highlight your undereyes? Although it sounds strange, many TikTok users including Thiri in New York have given their approval to the technique. She viewed a video by Halen Rodriguez in which she applied a white concealer directly under her eyes and then blended it with a concealer that was slightly lighter than her skin.
Thiri tried it herself with L.A. Highlighter for Girl HD Pro Concealer. The bright white concealer is applied right under her eyes and between her eyebrows. Before showing the final result, she looks skeptically at the camera as the white pigment is applied to her face. Her undereye highlight was brightened by the white concealer, without any flashback. Thiri said that she uses the technique to highlight her features.
Add a Heart Highlight to the Nose
This style of nose contour is not meant to alter your sculpting. This trick is great for those who like experimental makeup. Kutlwano Pride Sekgale, a South African creator, created this tutorial to show viewers how to create a heart-shaped nose contour. The end result is a tiny heart of highlighter at the tip of the nose, which adds some flair to your look. This technique is even used by Shuga Cain, drag queen. With a brown L.A. color, she contours her nose as normal. She applies Girl HD Pro Concealer and draws two lines along her nose. She also applies the concealer to the tip of her nose. She blends it with both a brush or a sponge.
She blends the outside of the heart so it is still defined. She then applies a lot of powder to bake around her heart and along the sides. After defining the lines, she goes back in with some concealer. Finally, she applies a pink blush along her bridge. Then she applies a shimmery highlighter to the middle of her nose, and the heart. She finishes by adding a few dots to her nose to make faux freckles.
These hacks won’t work for everyone. Take what works and discard the rest. If your current routine is working well, you don’t need to try it. You don’t have to change it if it’s not broken. This list should help you make your beauty routine a little easier.
