Since its exponential rise in popularity in 2020, TikTok has become the home of entertainment, information, and fun, with beauty and lifestyle, hacks being shared almost hourly.
It’s not surprising that many TikTok accounts are dedicated to beauty; it’s the perfect platform for makeup and beauty influencers to share content and reach a new audience quickly.
TikTok beauty and lifestyle hacks have become increasingly popular on the platform, with professionals and amateurs alike sharing their tips and tricks. WomanlyLive has picked some of the most exciting and useful beauty hacks shared on TikTok.
The Under-Eye Concealer Hack
We have watched makeup artists and beauty influencers do the standard upside-down triangle of concealer under the eye for so many years. The concealer is then usually blended out using a brush or a beauty blender, but recently TikTok has shown us all that this drags your face down.
The hack presented to solve this problem is to place a dot of concealer in the inner corner of your eye and a line of concealer from the outer corner of your eye and up your cheekbone. You blend the concealer in the same way as before, but this technique lifts your face.
The Foundation Hack
We all know how to apply our makeup; it goes SPF, moisturizer, primer, foundation, setting powder, setting spray. At least it used to go like that. TikTok has shared an ingenious way of applying foundation that gives you a beautiful smooth finish that lasts all day.
You start by applying your SPF and your moisturizer, but then add a light layer of translucent powder and your setting spray. Once you’ve done that, you can move on to your primer. Apply your foundation on top of this, and you’re set to go.
The Baking Soda Hack
This hack is one that, while helpful, can be harmful, so it should only be used if you have no other options available. While everything was closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, frequent patients at the dentist’s rooms couldn’t get their usual teeth-whitening treatments done. Once again, TikTok was there to save the day. This hack shows you how to mix baking soda and peroxide on a dry toothbrush and then brush your teeth with the mixture. Baking soda is abrasive, and that is why it removes stains from the teeth quickly. However, it can be harmful to your teeth and gums because it is so abrasive, so it should only be used as a last resort or occasional DIY.
