TikTok E-Girl makeup is all about the edgy, punk rocker vibes with a splash of playfulness. This unique look is unruly and meant to be seen.

Trend #2: Soft Girl Makeup


The faux freckle trend is one thing that the E girl and Soft girl look have in common. However, the Soft girl look is overall super girly and feminine — lots of pinks, baby blues, yellows, and peaches. It’s all about the romantic, pastel-hued aesthetic. Think light pink hair, cloud or heart shapes, and soft blush. Don’t forget about your go-to Soft girl hair accessories: barrettes, hair clips, scrunchies, and bows.

Whether you have hooded eyes or close-set eyes, there is an eyeliner look that will match your eye shape and highlight your natural beauty. There are also plenty of featured hacks geared to make beginners look like experts. Bobby pins, credit cards, and tape, are just a few of the everyday household items you can use to transform yourself into a makeup artist.

We all know how frequently popular trends have changed throughout the decades, and this TikTok challenge lets us explore how we would personally rock each style. Ever think of what epic blue eyeshadow and crimped hair you would’ve worn in the 1980s? Or maybe you’re more into the natural glamour from the 1950’s? Either way, it’s an exploration journey that we’re all about.  >> Download FREE YouCam Makeup app & Try!

Trend #7: Foundation Challenge


This challenge is ALL about the foundation, the more the better. Meredith Duxbury went viral posting this excessive foundation makeup routine on Tik Tok. It’s always recommended, but optional, to start with Skincare and a primer. A thick layer of foundation is then added using a makeup brush and rubbed into facial skin using both hands. Once this sets, add a full additional layer of foundation, before completing the rest of your makeup.

Simply put, it’s a layering effect that results in full, flawless coverage. Use the YouCam Makeup foundation feature, which includes face and shade detection technology, to find your perfect foundation shade match.
