Makeup how-to videos are always a hit on social media.
And, lately, the stars in these videos are the Chinese makeup artists using an app called Tik Tok to demonstrate their skills in transforming their own faces.
The video posted on a Facebook page called Es China has garnered over 24 million views and over 33,000 reactions since it was posted last Wednesday, June 20.
Many were astounded after the women revealed their bare faces: How did they achieve these stunning makeup transformations?
Netizens are guessing how they did it, and here are some of their theories.
NOSE AND SCAR WAX
Some netizens commented it's prosthetic makeup, and the easiest way to do it is by using nose and scar wax, which can be molded like clay, and spirit gum adhesive to keep it in place.
However, the nose and scar wax easily wears off as it is sensitive to heat. The makeup needs constant touch-ups.
CHIN AND DOUBLE EYELID TAPE. Several videos also show the women using chin tape to shape their jaw lines and get rid of double chins.
They also use double eyelid tapes. Most Asian women have no visible crease line on their eyelids. Double eyelids are deemed beautiful, and many Asian opt for surgery to achieve the look.
