A little makeup can go a long way, according to TikTok star @skincaresuzi, whose latest post shows how to get an "instant facelift" with just three products.

Suzi dedicates her account to skincare and makeup tips for people over 40.

Her latest hack has gone viral, with more than 88,000 likes, and many people proclaiming her simple tip to lift your face as "witchcraft" and "amazing".

Suzi's 'instant facelift'

Suzi's simple tip involves using cream concealer, light diffusing concealer and cream highlighter to highlight the areas of the face that naturally droop as you get older, and draw the eye upwards.

She dabs a bit of each product at the corners of her eyes, nose and mouth, and blends them diagonally upwards with a makeup brush.

"Just make sure they're lighter than your skintone," she advises.

The result is that her face looks naturally lifted and firmer.

"Do it as many times as you need to get the desired effect," she says in the comments.

"Just blend well to avoid stripes."

Suzi uses The Illuma light-diffusing concealer, Way To Glow Cream Highlighter and Undercover Cream Concealer, but if you're after similar products that are more easily available in Australia, try these:
