The beauty of makeup is that it can be used in endless creative ways, and luckily we have social media to share the art of makeup. The latest killa concept? Use concealer to create a fierce winged liner look. Yes, TikTokers have tossed basic black eyeliners to the curb and opted for concealers instead, our trusty hide-and-seek. Here’s everything you need to know about this #NoMakeupMakeup eyeliner trend.

Get ready – this is no ordinary liner look. Badass and fashion-forward beauty MUA May Akhtar designed the #transparenteyeliner look with a few Now You See Me, Now You Do not magical, earning 1.1 million TikTok views. In case you missed it, her stripped down version of the classic wing doesn’t use the standard black eyeliner – no, she uses concealer to create the sharpest wing of your dreams.

The lesson here? Don’t limit your concealers to masking dark circles and ripping off your cheekbones – they can do so much more! Swap instead out your black eyeliner for a creamy concealer like our new Huda Beauty #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Concealer, $29. Use a shade that is one or two shades lighter than your usual concealer shade (this is your highlighter shade in our skin tone matching guide). Remember, the lighter you go, the more your liner will pop.
Next, prep your eyelids with an eyeshadow primer for long-lasting wear. Next, use a flat angled brush dipped in concealer and draw a thin line, starting from the lower lash line towards the tail of your eyebrow. Connect the line to the center of your eye to create an empty wing shape. To finish, gently tap concealer into skin, then blend outward for an even finish.

We recognize a versatile look when we see it. We love how beauty maven Aysia has embraced the #fairycore trend of pastels and shimmers. Part of the appeal of the trend is that it can be worn across the color spectrum and with everything from a natural little film to a totally dramatic wing.
And can we also take a minute to appreciate this sexy, shiny edition of the sheer liner?
@maytahmi People wanted gloss!!! The transparent liner is actually so cool hehe #graphicliner #linermakeup #editorialmakeup ♬ money trees – 🍪
One word: DOP!
Ourrrrrr make it more dramatic and wear it solo like Wendy Asumadu does here. We rock hard with this natural wing illusion and love that it’s bold enough to turn heads but subtle enough to wear every day.
TikTok has also given us plenty of concealer hacks over the years, including a technique that lifts your face in 30 seconds flat?! If you’re curious, here are our favorites.
