There are different sides to TikTok: dancing videos, cute animal videos, hilariously inappropriate videos and so on.

We can’t get enough of the makeup and beauty influencers who pump out beautiful and informative videos.

A subset of these beauty videos is makeup hacks - we love ‘em!

Screenshots from @sarah_wolak's video on TikTok as she applies concealer to nose and cheeks. She wears a blue v-neck jumper and has her hair clipped back with blue clips.

Anything that allows us five more minutes snoozing is a major win.

For a flawless face that looks red-carpet ready, you normally have to spend hours in front of the mirror, but this one-line concealer hack will tighten your entire routine.

TikTok video shows full glam concealer hack

TikTok makeup artist Sarah Wolak has an impressive 81,000 followers and regularly shows off makeup hacks, looks and her favourite products.

In this viral video, she shows how she conceals/contours her face to get a glam, snatched look in under a minute!

Set to music, Sarah starts just beside her right eye and conceals underneath it.

She then continues the line of concealer around her nose and down to her mouth, where she pulls it across her cheek to the edge of her face.

Still in one continuous line, she drags the concealer back to her mouth, under her chin and creates a symmetrical version on the left side of her face.


The one-line routine looks easy and smooth.

Sarah shows us the final look in a jump cut, once the concealer has been buffed out, revealing a flawless, Kim Kardashian-esque look.

The video has more than 2000 likes, with multiple TikTok users commenting they “gotta try this”.
