Is TikTok’s New #TriangleConcealer Technique As Good As It Looks?
With so many viral concealer techniques out there, you’ll understand why we need concrete proof before we let something new creep into our beauty routine. The latest that caught our eye: TikTok’s new #TriangleConcealer method. Its transformative before-and-afters were impossible for us to ignore. Unlike the huge undereye concealer triangles that were everywhere back in the day, this new technique uses concealer to lift, snatch, and brighten your complexion. Intrigued?
The Viral Triangle Concealer Method
The hack: TikToker @l_dbeauty drew concealer triangles in three strategic spots – her undereyes, beside her nostrils, and below her lower lip – blending it immediately for a natural faux snatch unlike any other.
Pro tip: To enhance the lift, draw a fourth triangle extending the outer corner of your eyes toward your hairline – trust us!

The hype: #TriangleConcealer has over 131,000 fans praising its ability to snatch effortlessly. No surprise there because it focuses on lifting specific areas of your complexion with strategic application and upward blending.
How to get the look: Start by drawing a concealer triangle (think: 90 degrees) below your undereyes, and blend it out. Repeat on both sides of your nostrils and then the outer corners of your lower lip, blending the formula outward and upward.
BTW, you may see different variations of the technique – some go for large triangles, others for tinier ones. We love dipping a thin, angled brush in our #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Concealer, $29, to create sharp triangles for an emphasized, crisp natch.

While the OG creator immediately blended out her concealer, we’ve also seen plenty draw their concealer triangles first and then blend it with a damp makeup sponge or brush. This game-changing technique gives your concealer a few seconds to set and “cook” into the skin for fuller coverage – a hack we learned from drag queens.

What we liked: If you expected #TriangleConcealer to pull up with old-school heavy concealing, you aren’t alone – us too! But the technique is different as it uses concealer strategically to create a facelift sans the spenny docs appointment. It uses *just* enough concealer to make your complexion appear 5x more lifted, eliminating the need for contouring altogether! BRB, calculating… Yup, that’s time, money, and product saved.

What we didn’t like: Most of the tutorials we watched skipped over an important step: baking! This involves setting your concealer with a medium to thick layer of powder for a few minutes and dusting off the excess with a loose fluffy brush. It sets your snatch and keeps your lewk in check for HOURS, especially if you use our Easy Bake Setting Powder, $35 (true story).
