If you ever needed real-life makeup tips and tricks that work, TikTok is the place to find them. We’ve discovered valuable beauty hacks like “Gym lips” for a quick lip-and-go moment, and we’ve even used the frozen cucumber method for our skincare needs. The latest fad to sweep the platform now: Under-eye blushing.

Currently amassing 5.2 million views, the #underblush is a clever way of working with blush placement underneath your eyes. The goal is to help cover up dark circles and hollowed eyes, which can be quite daunting to conceal. The trend was curated by pro makeup artist and TikToker @paintedbyspencer, who explains in a clip that this trick can be “life-changing.”

Before you decide to pick up all of the blushes you have on hand to try this hack, Spencer advises, “You can’t just use any blush. I find it most effective when it’s a pink, coral or peach-y blush. That’s what’s going to cancel out those tones.” An even more important tip is that the blush cannot have any shimmer or glitter in it. “It has to be matte because shimmer, or highlighter is going to accentuate pores and fine lines,” says the artist.

Spencer advises doing your foundation and concealer first. (Yes, the foundation does go before concealer.) Then, you’re ready for the application of eye makeup. For the last step, Spencer uses a powder blush right underneath the eyes to finish the look.
