Another day, another TikTok hack. Surprised? Not so much. We're not even 60 days into the year, and TikTok has given us enough to fuel our experimental MUA alter-egos for the next couple of months. There's a new hack doing the rounds on the platform, and it's poppin'. Literally. Let's talk a little about it, shall we?
An under-one minute highlighter hack?

Yup. We chanced upon an under-one minute hack that delivers an instant pop to your eyes. Brightens them up. Lifts them. And plays into the illusion of bigger eyes. You will need a liquid-based highlighter and an eyeshadow brush to attempt this one. Popularised by MUA Megan Lavallie, this hack has garnered 3.4 million views on the platform. Because it's just that great. And it's just as simple as it is great.
This one's all about the placement of your highlighter. And we're not referring to the standard high points of your face. Nope. This one is centred around the eyes. Literally. In the snippet shared by Lavallie, you can see her dab a pop of highlighter around her eyes in a triangle-like pattern. She dots a tiny bit of her highlighter on her eyelid, and a little on either side of the eyes, and blends it out with her brush. She explains, "By placing your highlighter in these three specific spots kind of in a triangle around your eye, [you'll] create this beautiful halo. It just makes your eye pop," Lavallie says.
That's all that there is to the hack. Place a dot under the arch of your eyebrows; one under the inner corners of your eyes; and one below the outer corners of the eyes. Once you're done, blend it out with your brush. And the result is impressive: brighter, lifted eyes instantly. Works like a magical eye-brightening cream.
The perfect highlighter doesn't exi…
