On these days I am at all times on the lookout for shortcuts to get my make-up performed as quick as doable. Enter: the make-up hack from TikTok that sees you placing on your whole face merchandise without delay and mixing them along with a moist sponge.
Everybody that I noticed attempting this trick on the app was blown away by how straightforward – and most significantly, fast – the method was. In contrast to some TikTok magnificence hacks that fall flat when put to the take a look at by a number of folks, this one gave the impression to be successful each time. So, on a day once I solely had one Zoom assembly that I actually did not really feel like preparing for, I made a decision to provide it a strive.
The important thing right here is to make use of cream or liquid make-up merchandise for each step – powders will not do. I grabbed the TLB Ivory Caffeine Concealer ($15) for below my eyes; Pur 4-in-1 Sculpting Concealer ($22) to cowl blemishes; Tower 28 Bronzino ($20) to contour my cheeks, temples, and jawline; Hourglass Vanish Blush Stick ($46) for my cheeks; and About-Face Mild Lock Stick ($20) for the excessive factors of my face (cheekbones, eyebrow bone, and nostril).
With solely sunscreen on my face, I utilized my merchandise in the identical order I at all times do: concealer, bronzer, blush, and highlighter. With all the completely different pigments on my face without delay, it seemed just a little foolish, however I used to be a believer it’d prove OK. I sprayed my face with the City Decay All Nighter Lengthy-Lasting Make-up Setting Spray ($33), which supposedly helps all the merchandise mix collectively, and used a moist make-up sponge to get to work.
To date, the whole utility course of was solely about three minutes lengthy – I timed it. The mixing portion was equally straightforward, though my contour took just a little bit of additional effort to make it clean. By the point that was performed, my timer learn two minutes. To complete issues off I utilized some forehead gel (Kosas Air Forehead Tinted Volumizing Eyebrow Gel ($20)) and mascara (Roen Magnificence Cake Mascara ($28)).
Though I by no means had any doubts, I used to be critically impressed with the ultimate outcome. Every thing seemed even and blended, however my cheekbones had been nonetheless outlined and my blush seen. All stated and performed the make-up hack took 5 minutes, and I am unsure that I will ever apply my merchandise one after the other once more.
