One of the symptoms of being in lockdown is downloading the TikTok app.

In case you have somehow missed out on the memo, everyone has been trying to get their hand at Tik Tok. Since the start of the pandemic when the whole world went into lockdown mode, we started seeing people unleashing their inner talent and creativity via this video-sharing platform.

You’ve probably seen the popular dance challenges like the fun lip-syncing “Bored in the House” or the “Savage” dance challenge, to the #wipeitdown and #sunglasseschallenge trending this month. There’s no doubt that we’ve been spending hours reshooting with multiple edits just to get that one challenge right on this 15-60 second video sharing app.

After all, this rising social media platform has a lot to offer. While we have seen the quirky and fun dance challenges, we are also enjoying a wide range of beauty and style influencers sharing some quick makeup tutorials. If you are still hesitant to go down the bandwagon and just need some inspiration to kickstart, here are some must-see beauty creators you should be following on TikTok. We wouldn’t be surprised if you are convinced about creating an account right after this.
