Tiktok inspired beauty trends u need to try

new age contouring + highlight

So we all know makeup trends are constantly changing, but this new trend really does have the ability to lift your face and create a youthful appearance. All you have to do is place your contour, highlighter and blush slightly higher than usual to create a higher cheekbone affect. Check out Missguided Beauty for a fresh full face look.

return of the claw clip

The ’90s style claw clip has officially made its entrance back into the fashion world and we’re glad for it. Its safe to say that we are sick of pulling hair ties out after a long day and ripping 20 hairs out with it. The claw clip is a gentle alternative and also looks amazing – what’s not to love?

the gua sha technique

The ancient Chinese ‘Gua Sha’ technique has officially blown up on TikTok and beyond, with celebrities like Lizzo even joining in on the trend. If you are feeling a bit puffy and in need of a cleanse, we suggest picking up one of these bad boys to drain toxins from your face to create a tight and youthful appearance.

full coverage + lightweight foundation


Is this actually worth the hype or wut??????I try NEW KVD Beauty Good Apple Foundation Balm! @KVDBeauty #AD #goodapple

Everyone is currently raving about the KVD Beauty Good Apple Foundation for its extremely full coverage effect that still feels lightweight on the skin. However, reviewers are noticing it isn’t the most long lasing with an oily sheen appearing after a couple of hours. A good dupe for a full coverage yet lightweight foundation is our Meet Your Match Demi Matte Foundation which is long lasting, vegan and cruelty free. Give it a go to upgrade your makeup game.

so eyebags are apparently a thing now?


@sarathefreeelf and @abbyrartistry made me do it

Tbh we don’t know if this trend is serious or not. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for dark eye bags becoming a trend – that’s definitely something we can all participate in for free. But this trend shows the positive side of TikTok. Showcase your insecurities because you are definitely not alone. Everybody is beautiful and TikTok does a great job of making everyone feel included.
