I often benefit from the technique of doing my make-up, however I am not going to sit down right here and inform you that there aren’t days the place I want I may snap my fingers and have a full face accomplished in seconds. On these days I am all the time searching for shortcuts to get my make-up accomplished as quick as attainable. Enter: the make-up hack from TikTok that sees you putting on all of your face products at once and mixing them along with a moist sponge.
Everybody that I noticed attempting this trick on the app was blown away by how simple — and most significantly, fast — the method was. In contrast to some TikTok magnificence hacks that fall flat when put to the check by a number of individuals, this one appeared 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 offer it a attempt.
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 beneath 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 all the time 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.
Thus far, your entire software course of was solely about three minutes lengthy — I timed it. The mixing portion was equally simple, though my contour took just a little bit of additional effort to make it clean. By the point that was accomplished, 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 severely impressed with the ultimate outcome. All the things seemed even and blended, however my cheekbones had been nonetheless outlined and my blush seen. All stated and accomplished the make-up hack took 5 minutes, and I am undecided that I am going to ever apply my merchandise one by one once more.
