Beauty experts’ smart hack to avoid makeup marks caused by sunglasses
- A TikToker has shared a life-changing hack for people who wear foundation
- Social media users have praised her for the tip, saying it was “such a great idea.”
Looking across the bay, lips pouting, the glint of the setting sun in your shadow. It’s another perfect selfie.
Your Instagram friends back home may think you’re the epitome of cool… but after you drop your sunglasses to inspect the menu, the waiter stares at you.
He can’t take his eyes off you. As he approaches, give him your best smile. But he takes your order and leaves with a grin.
It’s later. Much later, back in the hotel room when you stand in front of the mirror. And find the truth – two pale sticking points on either side of your nose… where your sunglasses used to be.
Makeup and shades can be a dangerous combination, but don’t worry, one TikToker has come up with a “genius” solution to save you from those embarrassing face blemishes.
The creator, Miss Alana Black, shared that she likes to wear makeup and sunglasses in the summer but finds it annoying when the makeup creases
Ms Black shared the hack with her 160,000 followers as the method requires two quick steps before putting on your sunglasses
Alana Black, aka @missalanablack on TikTok, shared a video explaining how to get rid of those telltale blemishes and creases on your nose.
She captioned the clip “daily reminder to try this hack if you’re wearing glasses and makeup this spring/summer!” — and her followers praise her “great idea.”
In the clip, she begins by explaining that she likes to wear make-up and sunglasses in the summer, but finds it annoying when the make-up leaves marks.
But she told her followers that she has a hack to prevent this “annoying” occurrence.
Ms. Black said, “Don’t worry, this hack will definitely fix it.”
The TikToker showed its users a box of setting powder and said, “You are going to take some setting powder, you are going to take a brush. Every brush is suitable for your powder.’
After putting a little of the powder into a smaller jar, she said, “You’re going to dip a little bit of it.” You’re going to put your sunglasses and a little bit of that powder on your glasses where it would be on your face.”
The TikToker then gently brushes the powder against the nose pads of her sunglasses, making sure it doesn’t get on the lenses.
She continues, “This way [your makeup] doesn’t crease and your make-up looks perfect – even with sunglasses on.’
TikTok users have praised Ms Black for sharing the tip, especially with the warmer and sunnier weather just around the corner.

But one less than impressed user said, “This is assuming I have time and am not late to get out the door.”
