TikTok is swimming with countless contouring “hacks” — some weirder than others — all claiming to provide you with a beautifully sculpted base. I put several popular ones to the test to see if they actually work, complete with photo evidence. For reference, here’s my bare face.

The first TikTok contouring hack, demonstrated by multiple creators, involves using large, fluid lines to contour.

Then, fill in the remaining areas with concealer.
