In one such clip, she could be seen in a make-up store while holding a tube of concealer in one hand.
“When you want to test concealers in a store, use this part of your hand, where you have a lot of natural lines,” she said.
Holding her hand up, she pointed towards the skin between the wrist and the thumb, where there are a number of ‘natural’ lines that occur.
She instructed viewers to push the product directly into the area to see exactly what it would look like.

This will give you a good idea of how the concealer will sit under your eyes, where lines appear as you age.
“Go ahead and push into those lines as you would if you were tapping into your eye,” she continued.
“And then just tap in because it’s going to give you more of a realistic viewpoint of what the concealer is going to do when it actually goes on your under eye.
“Your eyes are always naturally going to crease… Your hand is naturally going to crease.”
In the caption, TikTok user @thelipsticklesbians added: “Over time, I’ve found that I get the most accurate lay-down for concealer when I deposit product on this part of my hand.
“Since it naturally creases just like your under eye will, it’s a clever way to simulate how your concealer might perform on your actual face.”
People were quick to comment as one person wrote: “solid tip!!”
Another said: “My mom taught me this too. Also works for lipstick mimicking the lines of the lips!!”
“You are a make-up genius! I love watching you two!” another said.
A fourth added: “Great tip. They all seem to settle into my under eye lines even if I use a great hydrator first”.
And a fifth said: “Keep in mind the skin underneath your eye is very thin so not the same”.
She responded: “No, it’s not the same the skin is def different. This is more about the behaviour of products on natural folds or creases”.
Meanwhile, another said: “But they all crease,” to which she replied: “Yes, they do! But they crease varying levels!”.
