Dear concealer, I love you. Like most people, I’d hail concealer as my desert island beauty product because whether you want something to quickly erase dark circles or have a spot you want to banish (thanks, maskne), concealer is the superman of skin-correcting. Plus, it takes two seconds to dot a spot of concealer on your skin and the results are instant and astounding.
And just when I thought I couldn’t love concealer any more, a viral TikTok beauty tutorial proved the humble concealer has yet another talent—face-lifting powers.
The TikTok beauty tutorial from Megha Singh is blowing up on the social media app after the beauty maven showed how to create a ‘face lift’ effect using concealer.
In the video, Singh can be seen swiping concealer across particular points of her face—like up the outer corner of her eye, up along the curve of her mouth and at the inner contour of her eye—to create a lifting effect. After blending the concealer in using a BeautyBlender, she contrasts the left and right side of her face to show the dramatic results.
Pretty damn impressive.
The video has been liked hundreds of thousands of times by her followers who copied the hack themselves to emulate a face lift at home. Just look at how transformative it is.
In the market for a new concealer? From illuminating to color-correcting to industrial strength and weightless, there’s a solution for all; each created with specific skin concerns in mind. And now that many of us are ditching full coverage foundations for tactical touch-ups, a well-placed concealer might be all you need to feel ready and fresh-faced. Here are the best concealers to add to cart now.
