After months of spending my days and nights doom scrolling and feeling like complete crap day after day, I decided to give in and download TikTok. And WOW. Who knew that scrolling through hilarious (and super informative!) videos was the balm I needed during this crazy time? I’ve never posted a video myself, but I say with full confidence I’m obsessed with the platform.
When you first join, it takes a few days for the algorithm to learn what type of content you like. For me, that’s beauty tutorials and hacks, funny animals and babies, animal crossing vids, and some book and gym content. It’s my little Internet oasis away from the madness that is happening around the world.
So, today, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite TikTok beauty tips I’ve seen in the past couple of weeks. Some of these tricks and trends are actually life-changing!
Makeup That Looks Like Velvet and Lasts All Day
Achieving a velvety, natural foundation look that doesn’t immediately melt off of my face during the summer has always escaped me, so I typically don’t even bother—that is, until I found this viral tutorial.
All you need to do is apply your moisturizer as normal, then use a powder over your moisturizer, spritz some setting spray, apply primer, THEN put on your foundation. This simple trick really does help your makeup last all day long, without it being cakey or heavy. Iconic!

Finally, a Winged Liner Tutorial That I Can Do
Do you know how many winged eyeliner tutorials I’ve watched on YouTube and still couldn’t get it? Well, that all changed when I watched this life-changing tutorial. Truly revolutionary. If you click in the comments, there’s even an option for people with hooded eyelids. We love to see it!

Apply Your Press-on Nails Like a Pro
I’m not planning on going to a nail salon anytime in the future, so to curb my long nail craving I’ve been opting for cute press-ons, but the problem is they always pop off. Cue this TikTok and WOW. Now they last through all of my daily tasks. No more $100 dollar nail appointments anymore, friends!

Don’t Pop Your Pimples, Use Some Chamomile Tea Instead
Long story short, I am pretty shook by this beauty hack. Steep a bag of chamomile tea, put the bag in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, and then apply the compress to your pimple. So much better than popping!
