How to Do Your Makeup to Look Like the Glow Look Filter on TikTok

13 Materials
30 Minutes

In this makeup tutorial, I will recreate the glow look filter from TikTok! The look is mostly focused on the blush placement, which is all across the cheeks and bridge of the nose.

The glow filter on TikTok almost gives off a sunburned look with a lovely glowy highlight. If you're interested in recreating this look, then join me as I guide you with every step.

Tools and materials:

  • Makeup brushes
  • Nude eyeshadow palette
  • Blush
  • Highlighter
  • Eyeliner
  • Lipstick
  • BB cream or foundation
  • Eyelash curler
  • Eyelid primer
  • Color corrector
  • Eyebrow pencil
  • Spoolie
  • Setting spray
Applying eye primer to the eye area

1. Apply white eye primer

Use a high-definition eyeshadow primer in white and place it along the mobile eyelid and under the eyes. Use a finger to blend it out. 

Filling in eyebrows with a brow pencil

2. Fill in your brows

While the eye primer sets, fill in your brows. I focused on the ends, as shown. Use a spoolie where needed. 

Transition eyeshadow shade

Applying eyeshadow with a fluffy blending brush

3. Apply eyeshadow

For this step, use a big, fluffy blending brush and a transition shade in a neutral matte brown. Sweep the eyeshadow across the crease and blend it in. 

Deepening the crease with a darker shade

With a smaller blending brush, go in with a darker brown shade to deepen the crease. Then, add brown to the outer V until you are happy. 

Mixing the transition shade with orange eyeshadow

Mixing the transition shade with an orange color

Take the transition shade and mix it with an orange color. Apply it to the first half of your lid with a flat, dense brush. 

Using a darker eyeshadow along the lash line

Smudging the bottom lash line

With the same dark brown color used in the outer V, smudge the bottom lash line. Do this on the outer third. 

Using the transition shade to blend

Smoking out the dark color

Now, go in with the original transition shade to smoke out the dark color you just placed down. 

Highlighting the inner corners of the eyes

Highlight the inner corners with a champagne color. Gently tap it on with your ring finger. 

Applying gel liner to the upper waterline

4. Apply eyeliner

Give your lashes a good curl, and then apply eyeliner. First, line your upper waterline. You could do this with a liquid liner, but I’m going with a gel liner. 

Going over the top of the lash line

Go over the top of your lash line and smoke out the very outer edge of it, closer to the outer V. Use a small, dense brush to blend it out. 

Applying eyeliner to the bottom lash line

To finish up the bottom lash line, take the same eyeliner and tap it in right on the lashline.

Applying undereye color corrector

5. Apply an undereye corrector

I’m tapping in a brightening color corrector in the darkest area of my undereye. 

Applying BB cream with a large brush

6. Apply foundation

For foundation, I’m just going in with my favorite BB cream and applying it with a large flat brush. 

Applying blush across the bridge of the nose

7. Apply blush

Now, onto the blush, which is probably the highlight of this TikTok glow look filter. Go in with a brown/orange blush. Apply it to the top of your cheekbones and across the bridge of your nose.

Then, blend out the blush with a big face brush. 

Applying highlighter to areas of the face

8. Apply highlighter

Apply a highlighter to the tip of your nose, bridge of your nose, chin, above the eyebrows, and cupid’s bow. Do this with the tip of your finger. 

Blotting a berry-colored lipstick with fingers

9. Apply lipstick

Next, go in with a berry shade of lipstick and use your finger to blot it out. 

Setting makeup with setting spray

10. Apply a setting spray

For the last step, set your makeup with a setting spray. Mine has a slight glow to it, which is perfect for the glow TikTok filter look.
