If you follow me and my stories on Instagram, you’ll know that my favorite social media platform is officially TikTok. I can say wholeheartedly that TikTok has changed my life for the better—I’ve learned how to close a chip bag correctly, how to get parchment paper out of the roll without it ripping up into pieces, I’ve learned tips on how to get motivation to work out from home, how to deal with clingy dogs … and of course, more beauty tips than I know what to do with.
We all know sharing = caring, so I thought I’d talk about a few of the game-changing beauty TikTok tips I’ve found that make me look more youthful. Scroll on for more!
Update Your Blush Placement
I have to admit that I am old and I still placed my blush on the apples of my cheeks—and specifically applying it while I’m smiling. It definitely looks dated and makes my face appear super “droopy,” but using this tip changed the game. Now my face looks super snatched like a supermodel, and I’m here for it, tbh.

Mix Your Serum, Foundation, Moisturizer & Sunscreen Together
I’ve been trying to get into wearing makeup more often, if only because it greatly improves my mood and makes me feel like I’ve accomplished one thing in the day, even if I sit hunched over my computer while Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol plays on the TV for the 40th time in a row. Not only does this TikTok beauty tip mean I get four skincare steps done in one, but I also end up with more youthful, super glowy glass skin. It’s a win-win in my book.

Hair Gel Is the New Brow Gel
Since I haven’t had my brows done in a year (I can’t believe it’s even been that long), I’ve gotten into the bushy/spiky trend, which involves brushing your eyebrow hair up so it’s spiky. I’m obsessed with the look, but I admit that finding the right brow gel to keep your brows up is a bit of a challenge. Enter the Got2B Glued Spiking Gel that gives you the bushy brows of your dreams. I admit that I rushed out to buy it because hey, what else is there to do these days, and WOW. I am in LOVE. Just make sure you wash your face thoroughly afterwards.

Slugging Is Your Skin’s Best Friend
It’s no secret that I am obsessed with slugging, aka slathering Vaseline or Aquaphor on your face. Trust me, there is no better treatment for dry skin out there. Wanna wake up with glowing, dewy skin? You gotta slug, girl.

Update Your Concealer Routine
Yes, I am still one of the people still doing the whole upside down triangle thing under the eye, but I realized that a) I don’t need that much coverage, and b) it definitely made my look a little older. I’ve tried this application tip, and WOW what a difference. I look more awake and like I’m not drowning in concealer. We love to see it!

How to Remove Glitter Eye Makeup
I am obsessed with glitter makeup looks, but I am not obsessed with the fact that when we wash the glitter off, it ends up polluting waterways and oceans. But have no fear, this brilliant TikTok beauty hack actually works! Just remember to gently pull the tape away from your eye—no need to tug or rip it off. It’ll come right off!
