Lipstick is no doubt one of the more versatile products in your makeup bag. Not only can it be applied to lips in a number of ways (painted on, patted on, or blended with other shades) but it can also double up as a blush and, at a push, an eyeshadow if you’re going for a monotone makeup look.

But now, people on Tiktok are using lipstick to create an entire makeup look from start to finish – yes, that includes for concealercontour and even foundation. We’re not sure exactly why people are attempting this feat, but it’s safe to say that it’s not so much a genius makeup hack as a relatively random challenge (often with hilariously disastrous results).
