From challenges and DIYs to hacks, here are a few of the TikTok beauty trends that have gone viral.

Although most TikTok experimental challenges are temporary, the #PiercingChallenge is more long term.
The challenge showcases TikTokers applying a piercing filter in order to decide on which one to get. The choices include a dimple, labret, bridge and septum.
A while later they then film having the piercing done in real life.
If you are not sure about your makeup skills, this trend allows you to use your arm to recreate an eyeshadow look. If you are daring, you can even create your dream brows from scratch. This is body art!
While purple shampoo can help tone bleached hair, if your hair is not blonde prepare for some major disappointment.

At least when you finally do head back out, your look will be as fly as ever!
