The Viral TikTok Beauty Hack That Will Have Your Foundation Looking Filtered IRL

It will change how you do your foundation forever

Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / March 04 2020

A foundation application hack has gone completely viral on gen Z social media platform TikTok with users claiming it gives their skin the skin a 'filtered' appearance - in real life!

Instead of applying foundation and powder in the conventional order, the technique instead involves applying powder before foundation.

“Change your whole routine and try this instead… [You’ll] see how amazing your makeup looks. It [will] stay on 24/7 and it’s not going to crease.” says the TikTokker who is thought to have sent the trend viral, @ridaaaamat.

“Moisturise first then after moisturising take some translucent powder (I usually use the [Maybelline New York] Fit Me one) and I just lightly dab it all over my face – not too much.”

Once you’ve applied the powder, @ridaaaamat recommends spritzing on a coat of setting spray before applying primer and foundation.

“It’s a technique that’s probably used by so many other people. I heard it’s been used for a long time but I only just found out about it,” says @ridaaaamat before exclaiming: “Honestly – look! I don’t have a beauty filter on!” while gesturing to her skin.

And, considering how incredible her skin looks, we’d be willing to give it a try!
