Beauty enthusiasts are trying an unusual new makeup trend where they dip their foundation in water before applying it for a flawless finish that doesn’t rub off.
Makeup artists are flooding TikTok with videos of them trying the hack they say makes foundation ‘transfer-proof’ so it stays on throughout the day and doesn’t rub off during the day or onto clothes.
Beauty TikTokker Helin Doski tested the trick for herself with incredible results in a clip that has amassed more than 5.7million views.

She starts by adding a few drops of foundation to a glass of water and ‘letting it marinate’ for a couple of minutes.
Helin then scoops the foundation out with the end of makeup brush, applies it to her face and blends it out.
‘Guys why does this look so flawless? What is going on?’ she said.
To test whether the unexpected hack makes foundation transfer-proof, she presses a paper towel to her face showing that only a small amount of product had rubbed off.
While some were skeptical, hundreds in the comments were impressed with the unorthodox trick and gave their own advice for long-lasting foundation.

‘I wonder whether it only works with water based foundations?,’ one fan asked while another said: ‘I did this and my face was not oily at all all day and my face is always oily with makeup.’
‘Apparently applying foundation and spraying with some water helps to stay too! Without using a setting spray,’ a third suggested.
‘Using water on a sponge before applying foundation helps to remove oil from the foundation so when you apply it has more of a matte finish,’ replied a fourth.
‘I always soak my blender in water first, squeeze it out then dab my foundation around my face with it,’ another recommended.
