If you’re looking to figure out the next big beauty trend, TikTok may be the best indicator of what’s coming off the shelves.
Since the appearance of the popular video-sharing application, certain trends and products have become immensely successful. The #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt hashtag has been used when TikTok users try to test out some of the most viral products online, although it looks like some brands can’t seem to keep up with the demand.
Products such as Tom Ford’s Soleil Balm Frost Lip Balm are out of stock while some are out of stock or have a waiting list.
Almost always, a viral beauty product starts with a single video created by makeup artists or enthusiasts that racks up millions, sometimes tens of millions of views.
Mikayla Nogueira is a social media star and one of the biggest beauty influencers on TikTok. With her 9.5 million followers and counting, her videos testing out various trends and products happen to be one of the main reasons why certain makeup and beauty products sell out overnight.
Here, WWD Beauty Inc takes a look at some of the emerging beauty products on TikTok. Scroll to find out more.

Beauty lovers love a good blush trend, and that was the case for Nudestix’s Nudies Blush in Moodie Blu. The product is a deep eggplant purple matte blush that can be for your cheeks, eyes and lips.

Last year, the official CTZN Cosmetics website crashed after Nogueira posted a video reviewing the brand and its products, specifically the Nudiversal Lip Duo in the shade Dubai, which is apparently the perfect shade of naked.

Chanel Compact Mirror
There was a time when TikTok users bought the “cheapest thing” from designer beauty brands following the #CheapestThing trend on the app. This involves buying one of the less expensive items, in this case beauty, and filming its unboxing.

Tower 28 Sunny Days Sunscreen Foundation SPF 30

Within six months of being on TikTok, K18’s views grew from 500,000 to over 7 billion. “There is a desire for hair content on this platform and we are here to fuel it,” Michelle Miller, SVP Marketing at K18, told WWD.
