Coming in at number three with 1,129,500,000 views on TikTokis microblading that promises to banish sparse eyebrows popularised in the 90’s and undo damage done by over-plucking. Now we are able to get the look of naturally bushy eyebrows like Cara Delevigne. 

Beauty expert Lauren offers an overview of the risks and benefits of microblading:  ‘Microbladed strokes mimic real brow hairs, so they look so natural! It’s so easy to keep on top of plucking them yourself too as your shape is already there for you to follow! You do need to come back each year for a top-up as the microblading will fade over time. There are a number of health conditions that would mean you can’t get microblading such as skin conditions like keloid scarring. It’s also not ideal if you have really oily skin, as the strokes won’t heal well. Lots of people think microblading will hurt, but I use two types of numbing creams so the whole treatment is really comfortable.

In fourth position is the new phenomena in the beauty world, brow lamination, which uses chemicals to perm your eyebrows and make them appear fuller. It has an impressive 544,700,000 views on TikTok. Lip blushing has a total of 138,600,000 views on TikTok. Another lip enhancing procedure that deposits pigment in your lips using needles to alter colour and shape to achieve a younger look.
