A FORMER makeup lover has discovered a hack to make your foundation feel lighter and less cakey in minutes.
The viral TikTok video sharing the beauty hack has been viewed more than 492,000 times.
“I don’t do my hair, I don’t do my makeup,” TikToker Joelle begins the video.
“I used to live that lifestyle,” she says, adding she used to have lip fillers, liposuction, a fake tan, and other beauty treatments.
But after a divorce, she was forced to change her lifestyle.
“So I decided to focus on rediscovering myself for who I am without the fake,” Joelle said.
She goes on to state how some of her family feel it is “disrespectful” to show up to a family event looking “natural.”
To combat that, Joelle tried a hack that she shares with her viewers.
“I heard of a hack that makes wearing makeup feel more natural,” she says.
First, she puts her liquid foundation in water.
Joelle says doing this separates the oil from the foundation to make it feel less oily on your face.
While she doesn’t specify how long to leave the foundation in the water for, Joelle said she was able to clearly see the oil separate.
She then fished out the foundation from the bottom of the cup of water with a spoon and began applying it to her face.
“Wow it even feels better,” she says.
“It’s messy but it’s working.
“It doesn’t feel like make up at all, it just feels like water.
“It feels natural, it does not feel like makeup.”
Joelle says that while she wouldn’t do her makeup like this for a date, she definitely will for a family function.
The video has been viewed close to 500,000 times and has nearly 60,000 likes.
Hundreds of people have commented on Joelle’s hack – and also in support of normalizing not wearing makeup.
“We need to normalize NOT wearing makeup if we don’t want.. dark eyes, wrinkles, crows feet.. all natural as intended,” one TikToker said.
“Girl rock those dark circles! I’ve had mine my whole life, something to do with low iron, it’s giving Tim burton chic,” another wrote.
“Girl. Show up how you want. Be a boss with or without make up,” said another.
