Applying Foundation With a Spatula
You can thank the innovative Korean makeup artists—and our favorite beauty gurus on TikTok—for sharing this amazing tip with us, revealing that applying foundation with a spatula makes for smoother, fuller and more even coverage. Then, with a sponge, the foundation can be pressed in for a gentle finish that looks super natural and never cakey.

Washed Denim Eyeshadow
Even if you're not on TikTok, you're probably aware that blue eyeshadows have been taking over the beauty world, but the app has been the place to learn how to get the look. Everyone from Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner to Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa have been spotted wearing this fab washed denim look, and we love how versatile it is in terms of both hues and styles.

Dry Shampoo Foam
Dry shampoo foams are perfect for anyone in need of a hair refresh, and thanks to @sarahpalmyra, we're now obsessed with Schwarzkopf's Blonde Wonder Dry Shampoo Foam. Instead of hopping back into the shower after working up a sweet, just apply this game-changing foam to your roots for a sleek, clean style that looks even better when styled with a blow dryer. Even better, it's also super affordable.

@erinduganjurchak turned us on to The Lash Buddy, a must-have for anyone who swears by false lashes. This easy-to-use product holds down your real eyelashes so you can put your falsies as close to your natural lashes as possible. It's also super handy for preventing mascara from hitting your eyelids during application, and has a comb to brush through your lashes to avoid clumping. It's a triple threat you need to add to your collection.

Euphoria's influence on makeup doesn't stop when a new season ends, and while bright pigments and gems were all the rage earlier in the year, right now, it's all about the glitter tears. Use your favorite glitter makeup and brush it under your eyes to emulate tear streaks for a unique pop, evocative pop.

Nose Contour With Freckles

Bratz fashion is in. The brand has always been about self-expression through clothing as well as glam looks, and we love the way that TikTok makeup gurus are turning themselves into real-life Bratz dolls, complete with big lips, dramatic eyes and soft face makeup. Get the look yourself with winged-eyeliner, false-lashes and over-lining while going easy on the bronzer.
More specifically, you can achieve this look with winged eyeliner, false lashes, over-lining the lips and going easy on the bronzer.

There's a good reason the skin cycling trend has been all over TikTok. According to Dr. Whitney Bowe, a certified dermatologist, skin cycling—or exfoliating on day one, using regional on day two and resting your skin while moisturizing on days three and four—can do wonders to clear skin, so long as you're willing to commit to the process.

'Ovallining' Your Lips
If you want that pouty lip look, stop overlining and start "ovallining." Begin with making a line with your lipliner on your cupid's bow. You can decide how high you want the liner to go based on how much you want to go over your natural upper lip. Do the same below your bottom lip and connect the two by creating an oval to create that bigger lip illusion.

This Creative Mascara Hack
This trending beauty hack is a necessity in all of our lives. The next time you accidentally get your mascara over the place, instead of trying to rub it off with a Q-tip, grab a spooly and poof to take care of your mascara without ruining the makeup underneath.

Don't love cakey-looking makeup? Neither do we, and this TikTok trend is the perfect way to avoid the consequences of layering all of our makeup. Put on all your cream makeup at once, then spray a setting mist to make blending easier. When you begin blending, start from light to dark and voilà—perfect results.

While Kirsten Titus might be best known for her classic fruit-cutting videos, both Kirsten and her sister, Erika, have taken over the platform—and they've recently been really into the beauty scene. She's been especially keen on showing people with oily skin how to achieve the glass skin look—and we'll just say that Supergoop!'s sunscreen is an essential ingredient.

'I Got 99 Problems, But Makeup Ain't One'
You may have seen several variations on this creative trend, but we're loving @meredithduxbury's take. Instead of showing off impressive outfits, she decided to show off her amazing beauty skills. She has 99 problems, but makeup definitely isn't one of them.

New Nose Contour Hack
We don't think we'll ever see the end of creative and stunning contouring hacks, and the latest one is just for noses. This one's taking off because it's so easy to achieve, with incredible results. Just apply some bronzer to your index fingers, then rub the sides of your nose before adding concealer to the walls for a slimmer-looking nose in seconds.

Maximalist Rhinestones and Gems
We're pretty sure we have Euphoria to thank for the new maximalist trend of including rhinestones, gems and more in makeup looks. Whether they're in your hair, on your face or nails, or even on your teeth, rhinestones are trending again—and we think they'll be here to stay for a while.

Bold, thick brows have been the norm for quite some time, and it was only a matter of time before thinner 2000s-inspired looks returned. Pamela Anderson, Bella Hadid, Tyra Banks and many more have been spotted wearing thin brows—and in case you're not sure if they'd be right for you, there are also TikTok filters that will allow you to test out thin brows before committing to them.

The simple glossy lip look has been massive this year. Many brands are emphasizing fabulous glosses right now, such as Kylie Cosmetics with the gloss in the new Kendall 2.0 collection. Glossier's Holographic Gloss is also massively popular, as is the drug store alternative Ice Lifter Gloss by Maybelline. And if shiny lips aren't your scene, gloss on the eyes has also become a statement makeup look.

Cheek Contour Filter
If you regularly contour your face, you need to check out the cheek contour filter on TikTok. The unique filter uses lines to show you precisely where to contour with your favorite bronzer. Though it might look too high at first, even the gurus believe that the results look better than if you would have bronzed the hollow of your cheek.

We're sure you've seen the pinched eyelash look. Once your mascara is applied, simply take a pair of tweezers and lightly press your eyelashes into small sections while the mascara is still wet to create this that will be trending all year long.

Lipliner and Gloss
Lipliner and gloss are becoming the new direction for lips. If you still want to use lipstick, make sure it's a drastically different and lighter in color than the liner. Bella Hadid, of course, is one of the girls who made this look what it is today, but she's far from the only one exploring this trend.

Brown is the new black when it comes to eyeliner this season. It looks great on all skin tones and is a nice refresh from the typical black shade. TikTok guru Gisele Ayora has found a perfect liquid liner that doesn't dry up when applying it. So, if you can't let go of your favorite liner, now you don't have to make the switch to crayon or pencil.
