Top 5 viral TikTok Beauty Hacks

There is no escaping TikTok, it is absolutely everywhere and most people I know are just loving it whether they have joined or just watched, whatever the reason there is no escaping that it is the place to be and some of the biggest Beauty Bloggers are using it to its full advantage whilst it is popular and killing it.  On TikTok, you will find everything from lip-synching and dancing to something that catches my attention - Beauty Hacks! I even have a dedicated Pinterest board to Beauty Hacks.

I am one of those people who isn't obsessed with YouTube, but there are a few people who have a channel that I can and do watch, one of them being Laura Lee, who with her 4.45million subscribers was the one who drew my attention to the TikTok Beauty Hacks! So these are the 5 that have intrigued me the most and I would love to know if you have tried them!

Foundation Coverage - Making your sheer/medium coverage foundation into full coverage adding a loose powder to it!   In some videos, it appears to work really well and you can see a slight change in the coverage whereas, in others, it just makes that sheer coverage foundation have a thicker texture but does nothing to change the actual coverage. In fact, it looks really odd. It could all depend on the initial product, type of loose powder and whether or not, as in some videos, a primer is used.  That said, I think the concept is quite an interesting one. 

Faux Freckles - This is by SophdoesNails but Laura Lee did her version of it too.  You need a bronzer and some setting spray to create the look.  In a tub or dish, whatever you have spare, mix bronzer with some setting spray to get an almost runny paste and then taking an angled makeup brush, dip it into the mixture and flick it onto your skin, creating the Faux Freckle look and I quite liked the finish better than having to dab them on using eyeliner pencils, which I have seen others do!

DIY Glow - This is one I have tried having seen many beauty bloggers do it and that is to create your very own setting spray which gives that glow and it is something you can almost definitely make right now.  All you need is your favourite facial mist, or better still if you have a mist you are not that much of a fan of, but need to use it up, grab that and a product which has a loose pigment in champagne gold, maybe a silver, rose gold or something that sparkles - I have found loose pigment highlighters, such as Illamasqua's Beguile* work really well for this. Then add some of that sparkle to the facial mist, shake it up and test it out.  The joy with doing this is that you can add as much or as little 'glow' as you are happy with.

Foundation Lashes - There are a lot of products on the market which claim to make your lashes look thicker and more fluttery thanks to the addition of fibres within a mascara. From TikTok we have adding foundation to your lashes before adding mascara.  For this, you need to paint your lashes with foundation and whether you use a brush or a spoolie seems to be up for contention and then apply your mascara on top.  Again, it does seem to work in some videos and not so in others and each person who has done it has used a different foundation and mascara, so that combination would need to be the one which works for you.

Eyelash Curler Eyeliner - This is one I have actually tried with a varying degree of success. Eyeliner and I will never be the best of friends and it will never be a product I will actively seek out and need in my life.  Anyway, the trick is to get your eyelash curlers and almost colour in the top part of the curler which curls your lashes and as you curl them, the eyeliner should transfer to your eyelid.  On the whole, I have found it does work and it definitely makes tidying up the line an easier process than it would usually be.

Now we all want to find time saving hacks to make life that much easier and I would love to know if you have tried any of these or even have a little trick of your own that should be shared?
