While you might have a make-up bag stashed with some of the best concealers and best drugstore concealers on the market, it turns out that the placement of the product makes a huge difference to how your face looks after application.

According to heaps of viral TikTok videos, applying just a few swipes of concealer in just the right places provides the look of an instant face lift.

Instead of liberally slathering the product all over your under eyes and bringing it down onto your cheeks, the key is to apply it in the inner corner of your under eye, in an angled line from the outer corner of your eye, the outer fold of your nose and the corner of your lips. Then BLEND UP.

"The moment you released you been doing make up wrong this whole time 😳," added another, while one more chipped in to add, "Can’t wait to try this!"
