As COVID-19 spreads across the world, society is slowly shutting down. From canceled events to closed schools, governments are putting extreme efforts in place in hopes of flattening the curve. While Americans are being urged to socially distance themselves, large beauty retailers like Sephora (who shut down in-store beauty services)and Glossier (who closed all of its retail locations) are taking steps to help slow down the spread as well. Self-isolation can become a bit mundane, but thanks to social media and technology there are tons of things to do. From streaming movies and podcasts to face timing your group chat, and if that’s not enough, luckily like always TikTok is here to save the day. The app is quickly becoming the go-to social media platform with viral dances, comedic videos, and of course different beauty trends. To save you some time, we rounded up all the TikTok beauty trends you can try at home while social distancing.
Perfect Your Go-To Looks with #MakeupHacks
There’s no better time than now to flawlessly perfect your daily makeup so that when you finally do head back out, your looks will be on point. One of the trickiest makeup applications is a winged liner, but thanks to TikTok there are a plethora of videos that teach you the best hacks to create a nice and easy wing. Fly high!
Non-Creased Foundation? Sign Us Up!
Hear us out! What if you found an entirely new way to put on your foundation and it didn’t crease at all? While this trend is not a new technique, it’s one that has everyone on TikTok looking snatched right now. A bit of moisturizer, followed by translucent powder, setting spray, then the primer will set foundation flawlessly and have it last all day.
Serve Eyes, Lips, And Face
Get hyped up like James Charles and show off your skills with eye, lip, and face makeup. You can add your own flair to this challenge, so have fun with it. If you want to add a wig, go for it!
Get Rid Of Boring Lids
Just because you’re not going outside doesn’t mean you can’t create an outside look. Create sky looks with a blue base or any color base because you can paint the sky whatever color you want, accompanied with white cloud-shaped shadow. It’s like drawing clouds when you’re bored, but when it’s makeup it feels like art!
The rainbow trend has been making its rounds for a few months on TikTok, thanks to James Charles. From blended looks with every color of the rainbow to cut creases with the vibrant colors, it’s a playful trend that you can try multiple looks with. You can start with just about any color base and build the colors as you go.
Even though you’re in the safety of your home and it’s a judge-free zone, if you’re still not sure of your makeup skills you can try your hand at creating an eyeshadow look on your arm. If you’re daring, you can even create your dream brows from scratch.

It only takes a few steps and you’ll have your new favorite summer accessory.
