Bestie, it's time to acknowledge the power your concealer wields. Yup. That blemish banishing, spot-reducing, brightening formula you set the base of your makeup with? That's what we're talking about today.
Unsurprisingly, the last few hacks we've covered all involved a concealer. Remember the brightening hack that eliminates your eye-bags instantly? Yup, the one that involves dabbing a dollop of white concealer under your eyes. And the one before that—drawing glasses around the eyes to conceal under-eye bags. But that's not all that there is to a concealer. We're bringing to you another TikTok hack that you're going to love. Here's what you need to know...
What's the TikTok concealer hack all about?
Recently, a TikTok user took to the platform to show her followers a new hack: contouring with concealer. In the snippet she posted, she applied concealer on her face in a very bizarre manner.
She starts by applying the concealer under her eyes—extending right from the start of the brows to the inner corners of the eyes. She goes on to sweep the product around her nose and dabs a little under her nostril. She proceeds to trace it around her lip, and across the cheeks before blending the formula on her face. You can do the same with a blender or sponge. It's kind of like drawing the number '5' backwards. Sounds a little complicated, no? But it's worth it. Trust us on this one.
A lot of other TikTokers (including Addison Rae) have experimented with this hack, and they weren't disappointed.
