Well, there seems to be another new TikTok trend going viral that’s got us scratching our heads…
A popular social media space for users to share “hacks,” DIY videos, tips and tricks, and trends, has become the Gen Z platform. While TikTok has become a great tool for skincare and beauty gurus to share fast trade secrets or highlight the season’s newest makeup trend, the script on beauty rules has been completely flipped by one specific viral trend.
Hold the concealer, as the next big makeup trend in 2021 is apparently under-eye bags! Yes, I’m serious. While many of us are constantly trying to cover up our tired eyes or purple-ish tones, which seem to be a permanent fixture on our faces, the under-eye trend is telling individuals to improve the “tired” look.
Keep reading to find out more about TikTok’s under-eye bag trend and why the biggest insecurity of many individuals has now been considered trendy on social media.
Apparently, TikTok Makes Under-Eye Bags “Cool”
It’s finally our chance to shine for those of us who have desperately tried to cover up our inherited eye bags with three separate concealers, foundation, powder, and every other beauty trick that has circled the internet.
People are now taking darker colors and drawing on under-eye pockets, instead of tracing over under-eye areas with a lighter base to get rid of them.
TikTok user @sarathefree posted a video of herself intentionally using a dark crayon to give the appearance of an under-eye bag, although it is unclear who initially started this trend. Since then, the video has received over a million views, and more people continue to hop on the under-eye bandwagon.
