How to do TikTok’s Invisible Eyeliner Hack
Of all the makeup techniques out there, winged eyeliner continues to be one of the most elusive. Sure, it’s easy in theory – create a delicate flick of eyeliner that lengthens the look of the lash line – but in reality, the handshake and lack of well-practiced precision can quickly turn things into a bit of a mess.
But a new eyeliner hack from TikTok claims to make the process much easier. And while there are a number of inventive solutions available on the platform, we think this one might actually be one of the easiest to achieve. And the best part is? You probably have everything you need in your makeup bag.
Introducing the invisible eyeliner trend, originally championed by TikTok beauty creator May Akhtar, which quickly went viral and has now garnered millions of views on TikTok.

The invisible eyeliner trend involves creating a winged eye look using concealer, rather than just relying on a liquid, pencil or eyeshadow to create a defined cat-eye look. Once you’ve applied your chosen neutral eyeshadow, blend it out and upwards towards the tip of your brow.

Next, take your favorite concealer and carefully draw a line from the outer corner of your eye outwards – just like you would traditional eyeliner, only with concealer.

Now this is where the invisible eyeliner hack gets really good. Once you’ve shaped the lower line of concealer, simply take a small amount of concealer and focus it on the upper lid, starting around the center of the eye and taking it out towards the end of the lower line of concealer to the two. meet – sort of like an inverted triangle, if you will.

Then just buff in the concealer – very, very gently, mind you – and you’ll find a very subtle winged eye in your wake. The technique allows you to create the shape you want while still having room to blend and correct any mistakes.
