This year, we saw wide varieties of beauty trends and challenges. Most of them are all about being innovative, creative and time saving. Social media is always the driving force behind every trend and challenge we see, the same applies to beauty trends too. This gave opportunities for the beauty influencers to create the trends of their own with the help of social media. That’s how the one layer makeup trend got its first spark. With this one layer make up hack, you can put an end to your old methods of piling on the products on your skin one by one.
The first person to try the trend was the TikTok beauty influencer and content creator Chloe Morello back in February. Her video has over 1.8 million views now. Her inspiration behind this technique was that instead of layering up your makeup only to end up in cakey looks, it is better to try one layer and blending them all together. She explains that this technique makes the makeup look very natural and it stays all night without getting cakey. This trick only works with cream products. Blending a creamy foundation with a pressed powder blush is a recipe for pilling, so make sure you stick to cream or liquid formulas.
Start by applying the makeup products as dots all over your face. Apply concealer under your eye area followed by the foundation. Then apply the blush on your cheeks and then put on a bronzer wherever you want to. Now blend the products accordingly and gently. Put on some setting spray for the products to blend smoothly and easily. When you are done, take a brush and sweep it across your face and put on the setting spray again. You should start with the lightest color first. Starting with any darker shade will make it a bit pear shaped. The order should be concealer to blush to highlight and back to contour. This technique works best when a damp beauty blender is used with a setting spray
The one layer makeup trend is a blessing in disguise for people with oily or acne-prone skin. They agree that layering on so many products makes skin look cakey within a few hours, and clogging inevitably leads to breakouts. Even people with dry skin will find this technique helpful. The best part about this technique is that there is nothing new to learn as it is done in the exact same way of applying multiple layers. It saves time and energy and also works for all types of people. This is the easiest makeup trend because it only requires you to apply foundation or concealer only on areas that need coverage and not everywhere.
This trend is the ideal makeup for summer because this method lets the products sink into the skin instead of sitting on top of it. This makes you look more dewy and fresh.
