Faux freckles were all the rage last year, but there’s a new TikTok beauty trend in town – that’s right, move over 21st-century eye cream technology, because fake dark circles are officially in. And no, I’m not kidding…
Honestly, kudos to social media for turning the insecurity of several people into a part of Gen Z’s daily makeup routine.
Several TikTok users have been teaching their viewers how to create the look by swiping a thick lip crayon under their eyes and blending it out, obviously for those who don’t already have them naturally.
@sarathefreeelf and @abbyrartistry made me do it
Understandably, there have been some HILARIOUS reactions to this trend, with one person tweeting, ‘Someone must have been bolloxed tired one day and was like actually I’m making this fashion’.
Someone else reacted, ‘You’re telling me I’ve been trying to get rid of my dark circles for ages for it to become a trend?’.
I'm in, I've been rocking the dark circles for years now!

Personally, I can totally get behind this trend because I don’t even have to try. What do you think about this?
