This week's TikTok beauty trick: Find love with the mesmerizing powers of eyeliner

·2-min read
Michelle Diaz's #Whitedots beauty trick has already been viewed several million times on TikTok.

The treasure trove of TikTok makeup tricks keeps on giving, always serving up something different and never failing to create viral hits. Such is the case of this latest TikTok beauty tip, the virtues of which extend beyond the aesthetic, since this cunning eyeliner technique also promises to help you find love with its mesmerizing powers. A few quick, but cleverly applied dots could be all it takes to change your life completely... or not.

This is probably one of the most bizarre beauty tricks to come out of TikTok so far, yet it already has millions of views. And, there's no denying that it's safe -- and that's already a good point -- and that you shouldn't have any reason to bitterly regret having tried it, as could be the case with some other BeautyTok hacks. If it really doesn't suit you, a mere cotton ball and makeup remover -- or an eco-friendly makeup remover sponge -- will be enough to get rid of the minimal traces of makeup left behind by this beauty trick.

Dubbed "#Whitedots," the technique not only transforms your bog-standard beauty look, but -- according to its instigator Michelle Diaz (@ bymichellediaz ) -- could also help you find love! Indeed, the young woman, who has nearly 450,000 TikTok followers, assures viewers that the tip will "hypnotize" men. No small promise!

Look into my eyes...

All that's needed to captivate the entire male population, it seems, is an eyeliner. And it has to be white, otherwise you don't stand a chance. Who knew? For decades, the essential tool to make men fall at our feet was easily within reach, and nobody, before Michelle Diaz, had found the key to unlocking its potential. Unbelievable. Fortunately, once again, TikTokers are on hand to enlighten us.

In practice, all you have to do is apply your regular makeup, then add four white dots of eyeliner around each eye. But not just anywhere, or it won't work. The first two should be positioned in the inner and outer corners of the eye, then the other two under the lower lash line and just above the eyelid, right in the center so that they line up with the pupil. Then, the sleight of hand is complete -- you can now go forth and wait for the magic to take effect.

Although it might seem ridiculous, this beauty trick has already been viewed some 7.5 million times on Gen Z's favorite social network. And while we can well believe that it could, indeed, have men spellbound, we can't help but wonder if a salad leaf stuck between your teeth might not have the same effect. Still, the possibilities are so limited when it comes to experimenting with eyeliner that this original beauty trick could, at the very least, prove an interesting alternative to the usual looks. And that already counts for something!
