I tried the viral face shape filter that shows you how to apply makeup – it made me look snatched & glowy | The Sun
17th November 2022

FINDING the right makeup look for you takes a great deal of trial and error, but a face shape filter on TikTok helps ease the process.

As a senior lifestyle reporter at The U.S. Sun, I tested out a viral face shape filter that shows users how to properly apply their makeup to see if it lives up to the hype.


TikTok content creator Grace Choi created a filter that helps map out your perfect contour and highlight based on your face shape.

The Match Stix Snatch filter showcases six different face shapes and a specific contour for each shape.

Beauty creators Mikayla Nogueira and Sarah Wolak also tested out the makeup hack for themselves and gave rave reviews.

Using products I already have, I tested out the filter to see if there would be much of a difference from how I usually highlight and contour my face to this new strategy.

Before starting the application process, I first used the suggested My Face Shape Filter from the TikTok content creator.

The feature contains nine different shapes — including circles, diamonds, and hearts — to help users find the one that best matches their own face shape.

Upon using the filter, I figured out my face shape was diamond and then quickly shifted to the Match Stix Snatch filter to continue figuring out well the beauty trend would work on me.

In Choi's original video demonstrating how to use the filter, which was made in collaboration with the artistry team for Rihanna's Fenty Beauty, she recommends following the colored areas that correlate with your appropriate face shape.

Users should apply contour in the pink area, concealer or highlight in the white area, and a shimmer highlight, or blush,in the lavender area.

When I do my makeup, I normally contour the temples of my forehead, down the sides of my nose, my cheekbones, and along my jawline.

The contour tool showed me that I should apply my contour in a straight line at the top of my forehead, along the bridge of my nose to meet my eyebrows, my cheekbones, under my chin, and a dot equidistant between my lips and chin.

I applied some It Cosmetics CC Cream Full-Coverage Foundation with SPF 50+, $44, before I started the beauty method.

I contoured with the Maybelline Super Stay Foundation Stick, $9.99, in the shade espresso, and an L.A. Girl Pro Concealer, $4.99, in warm honey.

In the end, I actually liked the contour method and think I may change how I contour from here on out.

The process was straightforward to follow and it took less than ten mins to figure out my face shape, follow the filter guidelines and blend it out.

It's apparent to me that I wasn't doing what was right for my diamond face shape, and instead did what I thought was a universal way of applying it.

I enjoyed the overall result because my face came out glowy and snatched in a way that I haven't seen before.

My forehead looked smooth and even, which helped to draw attention away from any fine lines, and my cheeks looked more sunken in, which helped my lips look more full.
