Beauty: Here’s how to achieve smoky eyes in an instant
When it comes to makeup tricks, the application can be very uneven. The eyeshadow trick to apply with a sponge went viral within 3 days. This easy technique has been copied so many times that it’s hard to know which beauty addict thought of it first. Sites @glamwithsuzan, @cbeauty_m and @thebeautyradar have all tried it, with thousands of views.
The method involves using a mini makeup sponge instead of a brush to create an eye look in seconds. The TikTokers can be seen dipping the towel in different shades of eyeshadow. The pointed end is usually a light shade or something shiny, while the wider end of the sponge tends to be a darker shade. The next step is to pat the sponge on the eyelid and the result is a multi-dimensional smoky eye – with no blending and no fallout. Could this simple trick take the drudgery out of creating a glam look with eye shadow? TikTok creators make it look easy and that’s why I was skeptical. How could a tiny sponge replace the dozens of brushes usually used to achieve YouTube’s favorite (and arguably most difficult) makeup trend?
