eautyTok is at it again and this time, it promises brighter-looking eyes with the Ombré Concealer trend. As a beauty enthusiast, I couldn’t resist diving into this mesmerizing trend, eager to explore the secrets behind its popularity. The Ombré Concealer wave has amassed a whopping 6.8 million views and counting. Of course, watching someone apply three shades of eyeshadow on TikTok is nothing new but the idea of using multiple concealer shades for a radiant under-eye effect is new and intriguing.
The Ombré Concealer technique involves an artful combination of concealer and blush, skillfully blended to brighten the under-eye area and lift the cheekbones. The method starts with a simple dotting technique, using three shades of concealer and two shades of blush to create a seamless gradient effect. It’s a unique approach that provides a radiant under-eye and lifting effect without the need for separate brushes. The simplicity and effectiveness of this method have made it a favorite among BeautyTok’s makeup gurus.
How to achieve TikTok’s Ombré Concealer
To achieve the Ombré Concealer look, follow these steps:
- Step 1: Prep and prime – As with any makeup application, it’s essential to start with a clean and moisturized face. Apply your favorite primer to create a smooth canvas for the makeup to adhere to. This step ensures your concealer stays in place throughout the day.
- Step 2: Choose the right shades – Select three shades of concealer that complement your skin tone and are in varying degrees of lightness. The lightest shade should be applied near the inner corner of your under-eye area, followed by a slightly darker shade in the middle, and finally the darkest shade at the outermost corner.
- Step 3: Add a touch of blush – It’s time to add some color to the mixture with a pale pink and a dark-pink blush. At the inner corner of your eyes, place a tiny dab of the light-pink blush over the concealer color (optional). Apply one more dab of the dark pink blush to the farthest corner. The blush will increase the ombré effect and offer a subtle flush of color.
- Step 4: Blend, blend, blend – Grab your favorite makeup brush or a beauty blender and begin blending the concealer and blush shades together. Start from the inner corner and work your way towards the outer corner, taking care to blend the colors seamlessly. The key here is to create a smooth transition between the different shades so there are no harsh lines.
- Step 5: Set it in place – To ensure your hard work lasts all day, lightly dust a translucent setting powder over the concealer and blush. Use a fluffy powder brush for a soft, diffused finish. This step not only sets the makeup, but also helps prevent creasing and smudging.
Easy and simple! That’s how to achieve the TikTok Ombré Concealer trend which makes it possible to produce bright, luminous eyes. Without additional brushes, this simple multipurpose approach lifts your cheekbones while also brightening the under-eye area. Regardless of your level of makeup experience, give the Ombré Concealer trend a shot for an opportunity to confidently show off your mesmerizing eyes.
I’m eager to see the next trend BeautyTok has in store for us. These kinds of fads come and go, but what’s the fun if you don’t jump on board and improve your makeup techniques? Feel free to experiment with various concealers and blush colors and make this trend your own.
