TikTok Made Me Do It: The Beauty Hacks Going Viral

In a world of vanity, beauty and cosmetic trends come and go - but with thanks to ever-growing social media platforms such as Instagram, and more notably, TikTok, some of these trends can gain extraordinary popularity and become viral sensations overnight. From jaw-dropping makeup transformations to innovative skin and hair-growth routines, TikTok has become a go-to hub for beauty enthusiasts seeking inspiration and trying out the latest hacks. In this blog, we will explore some of the most popular beauty trends currently sweeping the internet, including laminated brows and the likes of perfume balms.


1. Laminated Brows

One of the most viral beauty trends, or hacks should we say, taking TikTok by storm is no other than laminated brows. After the 2016 trend of carefully sculpted and perfect brows, now in 2023, fluffy, modelesque brows are top of the agenda. After models like Cara Delevigne stunned the world with their iconic fluffy brow look, laminated brows are slowly starting to take over the TikTok “For You Page”, accumulating an impressive 226.6 million views. This technique involves setting the eyebrows in an upward direction, creating a fuller, more defined appearance that's all the rage in the beauty community.

2. No-Heat Blow Dry

In the latest TikTok craze, we’re witnessing a shift from makeup and skincare tips to the careful craft of hairstyling. With the latest 'heatless curls' and 'heatless blow dry' trends, users are seeking new ways to create bouncy and voluminous hair without the need for potential heat damage. It's time to wave goodbye to damaging heat tools and say hello to the no-heat blow-dry trend.

This innovative technique allows users to achieve gorgeous, voluminous hair without relying on a blow dryer, straightener, or curling iron. Not only does it save time and protect the hair from heat damage, but it also creates a natural and effortless style that's perfect for everyday wear.

One of the most popular ways to achieve a no-heat blow-dry, as seen on TikTok, is to start by applying a heat protectant spray to damp hair. Next, divide your hair into sections and twist each section around a dressing gown tie or a specialised no-heat curl string. These gentle alternatives provide structure and support without exposing your hair to damaging heat.

Allow your hair to air dry overnight or for a few hours until it's completely dry. The extended drying time allows the twists to set, resulting in beautiful, heatless curls. Once the designated time has passed, release the twists and gently finger comb your hair for loose, tousled waves. If you desire additional texture and volume, consider using a texturising spray or sea salt spray to enhance the natural texture of your hair.

The no-heat blow-dry trend is not only practical but also provides an opportunity to give your hair a break from excessive heat styling. By embracing this technique, you can achieve stunning hairstyles while minimising the risk of heat damage. Plus, the natural and effortless waves created by this method are perfect for achieving a relaxed and carefree look.


3. Perfume Balms

Alongside laminated brows and no-heat blow dries, another viral beauty trend gaining popularity on TikTok is perfume balms, more specifically, the Tara Maynard Perfume Balms from Bbare. Popular especially with those travelling and constantly on the go, these compact and travel-friendly pods offer a unique and long-lasting fragrance experience. Bbare’s Perfume Balms are perfect for those who want subtle hints of freshness throughout the day. From floral and fruity to woody and musky, these perfume balms offer a wide range of scents to suit your preferences.

Perfume Pods are designed to provide users with a luxurious fragrance experience that lasts 3x longer than standard perfumes. Made with organic ingredients, these perfume balms accentuate the notes and settle on a deeper level when applied to the skin. The small size of the pods makes them perfect to carry with you on the go.


Why Choose Perfume Balms Over Perfume?
1. Longer-Lasting Fragrance: Our perfume balms last 3x longer than a spritz of standard perfume, ensuring you stay fresh throughout the day.
2. Travel-Friendly: The compact size of our pods makes them ideal for carrying in your purse or pocket, allowing you to enjoy your favourite fragrance anytime, anywhere.
3. Luxurious and Organic: We use only high-quality organic ingredients in our perfume balms, providing you with a scent that feels luxurious and is gentle on your skin.
4. Easy Application: Simply use your fingertips to apply the perfume balm to your pulse points for the full effect.


4. Faux Freckles

Another trend that has taken TikTok by storm is faux freckles. This playful and youthful trend involves using makeup and other products like henna to create natural-looking freckles on the face.

To achieve the perfect faux freckles, users will need a reliable freckle pen or a fine-tip eyeliner. With precise application, users can strategically place freckles across their cheeks, nose, and forehead. TikTok influencers sharing this trend warn that it's important to keep the freckles varied in size and placement to mimic the randomness of natural freckles.

Experiment with different shades and intensities to find the most flattering look for your skin tone.


5. Unique Contouring Methods

Contouring has been a staple in the beauty industry for years, but TikTok has introduced some unique and creative contouring methods that have taken the trend to a whole new level. These innovative techniques allow you to sculpt and define your features in unconventional ways, providing a fresh and artistic approach to makeup application.

One popular method is "clown contouring," which involves using a combination of colourful concealers and contour shades to strategically shape and highlight the face. By blending different shades of concealer and contour products, you can create a multidimensional and sculpted look that accentuates your best features.

Another trend is "draping," which focuses on using blush to contour and add dimension to the face. Instead of traditional contour products, draping relies on blush shades to create shadow and shape. By applying blush in a diagonal motion from the temples to the apples of the cheeks, you can achieve a natural-looking contour that brings out your cheekbones and adds a healthy flush of colour.

TikTok has become a hub for beauty enthusiasts to explore and experiment with new trends. From faux freckles and no-heat blow-dry hair to unique contouring methods, these viral trends offer exciting and innovative ways to enhance your natural beauty. Whether you're looking to embrace your freckles, achieve effortless hair volume, or redefine your features with creative contouring, TikTok has a wealth of inspiration to offer. So grab your favourite products, watch some tutorials, and let the TikTok beauty trends inspire your own unique style.
