You Can Do Tiktok’s “No Foundation” Hack With Just 2 Products
Raise your hand if you love wearing a full beat every day! That’s great, and you look great. But be honest, sometimes you hate the feeling of wearing foundation, right? It can feel heavy and, if not prepped right, can look cakey.
Everyone online is always talking about their makeup secrets to getting skin that looks natural, flawless, and like you’re not wearing any foundation. But Tiktoker Amaya Colon has discovered the secret to a full face without actually wearing foundation.

She regularly does GRWM videos on the platform, and in one, she generously—and no joke, you have to be generous with this technique—applies concealer on her undereye area up to her cheekbones, the middle of her forehead, the middle of her chin, the middle of her nose, and underneath her cheekbones. Before blending, she then goes in with a bronzer or contour shade and draws it on the sides of her forehead, her nose, and her cheekbones. Then it’s blend, blend, blend until everything looks seamless and smooth.
By the end, she powders her whole face so everything’s set and doesn’t move!
So, what do you need to recreate Amaya’s “no foundation” full-beat look? Only a concealer in your exact shade and a bronzer in a warm or cool shade. Luckily, Strokes has those in incredible, award-winning formulas!
Nothing says glam like a blurring, full-coverage, matte concealer. Spot Veil is that girl—she’s loyal and stays put no matter if you sweat or oil up, she blurs fine lines and other blemishes, and the best of all, she’s lightweight. No heavy feelings here!
The secret? A blend of skin-loving actives like Caffeine to reduce undereye puffiness and brighten dark circles, Hyaluronic Acid to help your skin stay hydrated and plump, and Niacinamide to brighten dark spots while helping increase your skin’s collagen production. So, when you wear it and take it off after a long day, your skin looks better!
Spot Veil is so blendable, you can use your fingers, and it’ll still look good. But with the amount you’ll have to use for this technique, we recommend you use a brush!
Tip: Before applying this all over your face a la Amaya Colon, don’t forget to apply some eye cream and sunscreen to protect and prime your skin.
With 6 shades to choose from, there’s no doubt you’ll find your ja s contour and bronzer shades. Whether you go for Peanut, Mochaccino, Almond, Tortilla, Cinnamon, or Espresso for this “no foundation” look, you can expect skin that looks like it’s being hit by the sun at all angles (without the danger of UVA and UVB rays, of course)!
Don’t let Face Sculpt’s ultra-creamy formula fool you, she melts into your skin, sets, and won’t move at all.
Like Spot Veil Concealer, Face Sculpt is full of skin-loving ingredients, too. Vitamin E, Sweet Almond Oil, and Grapeseed Oil provide antioxidants to protect your skin from environmental aggressors, like pollution, and leave skin moisturized from day to night to improve its texture and elasticity. What more could you want in a contour and bronzer?
