Fake Dimples Are Trending On TikTok & People Are Creating Them With Makeup

We love all the experimentation going on over on #beautytok. From hair transformations to playing with bold colour. Now, creators are using their makeup bags to create fake dimples.

And while every face is gorge as it is, if you’ve ever wondered what you’d look like with laughter lines and dimples, the beauty stans on TikTok have a hack for you.

One creator, @glamwithdaminee, showed how she created cute fake dimples. She started with a full face of makeup before taking a contour crayon and creating a rounded imprint either side of her mouth. (It looked like she used NudeStix Nudies All Over Face Colour, but Fenty Beauty’s Match Stix Matte Skinstick would also work).

Next she added a dinky stripe of concealer either side of the contour and gently blended it in around the edges of the contour with a makeup sponge to create a shadowed dimple effect.

We’ve seen others giving the hack a go, too. Like @misstaradavy who completed her no-makeup makeup look with a barely-there dimple.

And @robertasalatioa who used a matte brown powder eyeshadow from her makeup palette to sketch in dimples.

We also saw @serenalakkiss give the trend her own spin, creating curved bracket shapes around the edge of her lips with a liquid contour, then going back in with a brow pencil.

Given the cray-cray lengths we’ve seen some users go to to create fake dimples (anyone seen the stabby pencil method, we’ll skip, thanks), this makeup hack is a much safer and pain-free option if you want to experiment. At the end of the day, it’s only makeup, which was made for playing around with shapes and structure. And if it all goes wrong, you can wipe it straight off.
