We’re telling you everything that you need to know about the TikTok beauty hack and the latest contouring and bronzing trends. Spoiler alert: it’s all about natural-looking contour for a sun-kissed and dewy glow.


Make sure to bookmark this article so that you can come back to it the next time you’re using bronzer!

The art of contouring


It’s no secret that contouring is notoriously one of the hardest makeup skills to perfect. If you take too much powder onto your brush, it can quickly go from a sculpted look to as though you’re wearing too much fake tan. All it takes is a split second on your brush to mess up your look.


It’s why we’ve long thought of contouring as an art form. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian were pivotal at bringing around the revolution of contouring. Do you remember before the pandemic when chiselled contouring was a must-have part of your look? We all made mistakes along the way, whether it was not blending properly or using a bronzer that was a shade too dark.


Like most beauty trends, the pandemic has seen us all tone down our contouring. Instead of the chiselled look of the past, trends are pointing towards a more natural look. You don’t want your contour to dominate your face or make it appear as though you’ve gone to down with your powder. Instead, your contour should accentuate your natural features and help lift and sculpt your face.


Bronzer is about creating the illusion of a slimmer face with a healthy glow and definition. We can’t deny that we’re glad to see this trend change. If you remember the old days of contouring, you’ll know how many hours were spent in front of a mirror trying to perfect the art of the Kardashian contour.


You can be forgiven for thinking that only a professional could get you that seamless look. Contouring isn’t easy but this more natural contouring trend can be achieved in just one swipe.

The essentials of contouring that everyone needs to know


As much as we want to look like a chiselled goddess every day, contouring takes time. As skinimalism comes to dominate beauty trends, contouring has been the latest makeup step to be pulled back to the bare necessities.


Before we can talk about this TikTok hack, it’s worth pointing out the basics about contouring that have never changed. Just like your blush, the placement of your bronzer is the most important step. If you put your bronzer in the wrong place, it can change the shape and appearance of your face. You also want to make sure you blend your bronzer to get rid of any muddy streaks or obvious lines that ruin the illusion of naturally sculpted cheeks.


It’s worth going back to basics and thinking about these two things before jumping into the TikTok hack. You’ll want to consider them regardless of what style of contouring or makeup hack you’re using.

The TikTok contouring hack that you need to know


Thanks to TikTok user @glamzilla, we have a newer and quicker way of contouring. It’s a gamechanger that your makeup routine will love. Nicknamed the ‘one fluid motion bronzer’, this hack focuses around applying your bronzer in just one brush stroke to give you a contoured look in seconds.


All you need for this makeup hack is a cream contour or bronzer (avoid powder as it won’t blend as easily) and a medium-sized makeup brush for your face. These are staples that you likely already have in your makeup bag or vanity. If you don’t, they’re the perfect investment pieces and a must-have for anyone who does their makeup regularly.


During the makeup hack, the TikTok user talks about how she loves to find easy makeup hacks that allow you to create a look with just one fluid motion of your hand.


To create the one motion look, you need to load your medium-size face brush up with cream bronzer. Place the brush at the outside corner of your eye, travelling along your brow bone, before going down one side of your nose, quickly followed by going up the other side. Carry on applying your bronzer in one fluid motion over your other brow bone, travelling down your cheek, along your jaw, up your opposite cheek, before crossing your forehead and finishing at your temples.


While that might sound complicated, it’s essentially taking the classic ‘3’ shape trick that most people use and re-creates it on both sides of your face in one fluid motion. It’s the perfect makeup hack to use when you’re on the go or in a rush out the door. Trust us. It’s not as complicated as it sounds.


You might think that this makeup hack would only give you a subtle contouring look. In reality, you get an impressive bronze glow and sculpted look in just one brush motion. It’s one of the most satisfying makeup hacks that we’ve found in years and so easy to do. Whether you’re a beginner or a professional makeup artist, this TikTok beauty hack can be a gamechanger for your routine.

Other things to consider with this TikTok beauty hack


One thing to consider when trying this TikTok beauty hack is whether you want to apply it under or above your foundation. You can experiment with one of the other major TikTok beauty trends by trying ‘reverse’ makeup. It involves applying your contour, highlighter, and blush first before adding a liquid foundation and blending everything together. As this trend calls for a cream bronzer, you can try both at once!


If you want the most natural and seamless look possible, it’s worth investing in a primer and applying it onto your skin first to help your bronzing brush move across your skin for a fluid motion.


You can apply your foundation after doing your cream bronzer, focusing the coverage on the areas inside the line of your bronzer. Don’t forget to blend everything together to give you the most natural look possible. Blending is essential to prevent any streaks or smudges getting left behind on your skin.


As the beauty industry looks for ways to cut down on the number of products we’re using and how long we spend in front of a mirror, this trend looks like it’s here to stay. It’s the latest in easy-contouring trends that focus on giving you the illusion of a healthy glow without caking your face with powder.


We think this TikTok hack is one that everyone should try and experiment with. It’s a time-saver that’s just made our everyday makeup routine even easier.
