2. Freezing your makeup sponge

You probably already know about the benefits of ice to de-puff the skin and soothe any redness, and wetting your makeup sponge achieves a more natural, dewy foundation finish, so why not combine both? Freezing your makeup sponge between 30 minutes and an hour offers a cooling, soothing action on the skin while getting that fresh makeup finish!

3.Lifting the whole face with concealer

Arguably one of the most celebrated and shared trends of 2022, this viral hack showed us just how useful one concealer formula could be. The trick works by applying your liquid concealer formula in upward angles across strategic areas of the face, including the outer eye, outer lip, cheekbone, etc., creating a “face lift” effect.

4. Lining the inner lips for more volume

Korean beauty (aka K beauty) has been a pioneer of modern-day makeup trends, and this one mimics that gradient lipstick effect with a more western twist of over-lining or oval-lining the lips. Start by using your go-to lip liner shade in a darker but complementary color to the lipstick you’re planning on applying. Line the outer edges of the lips and then the inner contours of the lips with a triangle shape in the center. Apply your lipstick, blend a little if desired, and your lip look is complete!

6. Nailing the gradient eyeshadow look

We’ll never do our smoky eyes the same, thanks to this transformative TikTok makeup technique! Start by choosing at least three coordinating eyeshadow shades, applying in swatches from lightest to darkest starting from the inner corner of the eye and working towards the outside. It looks a little crazy at first, but when you grab your fluffy eyeshadow brush and blend the shades together, you achieve the perfect ombré effect!
