Things were not as simple as they seemed. I do not have the same eyelid real estate as many of the videos I saw so the result was kind of muddy and could have been achieved with just two or three shades instead of the five shown in the videos.
My final look was nowhere near as neat and clean as the TikTok equivalents, but I got closer than I thought. I did swap out the concealer for a white eyeshadow pen and in an ideal world would have more thin, specialized eyeshadow brushes to work with.
This was not only my favorite look, but it was also the easiest to recreate. I settled on shades of red and orange and quickly dabbed the colors onto my lids. The pigment transferred more boldly than I expected and I liked the high fashion vibe of the “messy” colors.
The tissue paper hack can also be blended out for a subtle and clean look. I found this to actually be a better way to blend and create dimension than the five-shadow line hack. This was the easiest TikTok eyeshadow hack of them all.
