10 TikTok Beauty Trends That Have Dominated 2020

TikTok has certainly been having quite the year compared to the rest of us. Throughout 2020, many of us have plunged into an infinite realm of minute-long videos, often scrolling well past 2am – so an under-eye bag hack could be useful at this point. Beauty and make-up fanatics have found the perfect platform for all their beauty hacks, make-up tricks and skincare saviours. And for those of us who lack the attention span to spend hours perfecting the latest make-up trends, the beauty of TikTok means tutorials are condensed into 60-second masterclasses. Here, we counted down 10 beauty trends which dominated the platform throughout 2020. Warning: some are rather questionable…

Bella Hadid-inspired hair tutorials

If you’re after some 1990s-inspired hair-dos, look no further than Miss Hadid and her enviously good barnet at 2019s VMA awards. TikTok hair gurus have ever kindly made step-by-step guides to recreating her high-pony and side parting style.

Soap brows

The soap brows trend is one that definitely won’t be fleeting. Although more suited to thicker and darker brows, this technique is guaranteed to tame anyone’s wild, stray hairs. All you need is a clean spoolie brush, a clear bar of soap and a drop of water. Head to TikTok for the dummy-proof instructions!

Heatless curls

Singeing your fingertips on a curling iron is never the highlight to anyone’s beauty routine. Thankfully, hair extraordinaires have come up with a less painful alternative and all you need is a dressing gown belt. Simply – easier said than done – wrap your locks around the belt to wake up to gorgeous Hollywood curls. We can’t guarantee you’ll have a comfy night’s sleep, though.

Fox-eye make up

The key to the perfect smize is arguably a fox-eye. With that in mind, please don’t go spending your well-deserved cash on unnecessary and expensive – not to mention painful – surgery. Simply use a slightly lighter concealer just under your tear duct as well as diagonally up from your eye’s outer edge and blend. If you’re feeling up to the challenge, why not try extending your liner into your inner corner for the ultimate look?

Rainbow eyeshadow

For those of you who aren’t blessed with steady hands and a talent for bold eyeshadow looks, this one’s for you. Plenty of TikTok MUAs have blown us away with their colourful creations that will catch everyone’s eye.

Euphoria-inspired looks

Euphoria first graced our screens in 2019 and the make-up – as well as Zendaya, of course – 100% stole the show. With gem-studded eyebrows, holographic eyeshadow and glitter galore, we’re not surprised this turned into one of 2020s TikTok tends.

@sydninicole01pls dont let this flop i went all the way to walmart for gems and glitter😡🔪 ##euphoria ##fyp ##makeup♬ feel something – bea miller – valenn🐺

Button nose effect

Here’s yet another tutorial to add to our TikTok watch list. This time we’re using contour and blush to create that perfect button nose effect.

@latinabarbie222Luv a good nose contour 💗 ##buttonnose ##nosejobcheck ##nosecontour ##nosecontourtutorial ##GivingThanks ##makeuphacks ##beginnermakeup ##lagirlcosmetics♬ Show Me How (Album V) – Men I Trust

The Ordinary 

The Ordinary make skincare that actually works and won’t break the bank. Taking a single-ingredient based approach to skincare, you’re certain to find a product to cater to every skincare problem. Head to TikTok to find an abundance of reviews, advice videos and more to find the perfect product for you.

@honeydewglossone thing that actually deserves the hype ##theordinary ##foryou ##skincare ##fyp ##foryoupage♬ original sound – :))

Cerave

Here’s another skincare brand to add to your self-care routine. The Cerave Renewing Cleanser and moisturiser have taken the TikTok beauty empire by storm. So if it’s clear, glowing skin you’re after, you know where to look.

Faux Freckles

The legitimacy of this trend remains under question but as sun-kissed skin begins to fade as we head into winter, why not attempt to scatter some faux freckles over your cheeks? TikTokers have experimented with everything from brow gel and fake tan to hair root sprays in order to create a freckle-faced glow.
