It’s just like any other day that TikTok surprises us with its useful beauty hacks that are out of this world creative. It is not an overstatement to say that as beauty junkies, we do rely on TikTok for its tricks and tips. It is definitely the only reason to have an account, especially for those who choose to skip out of the dance challenge or lip sync to pop songs. Luckily, there is almost a new hack every month, from eyebrow mapping, lube as a makeup base to using salt water to treat acne. It is undeniable that there are a few TikTok beauty hacks that make us question its efficacy or should we say legitimacy? However, the moment we heard that people on TikTok have been head over heels with using a jade roller to blend their foundation, we just simply can’t resist ourselves.

The first thing that pops into our mind is definitely one word that describes it all, ‘what?’. Then, we decided to turn to the most trusted source, the internet for more thorough information. Surprise, surprise, it seems that people have actually talked about this hack two years ago with several tutorial videos on Youtube showcasing the makeup application. Well, it’s safe to say that using a jade roller to apply the foundation has actually made its comeback thanks to the viral TikTok video by Avonna Sunshine. If you are feeling super curious like us or simply want to hop on the bandwagon, now is the time to do so. To keep you abreast of the TikTok beauty hacks, Beauty Insider has gathered all the essential ‘tea’ that you need to know on using a jade roller to blend out your foundation.

How Did This Hack Started?


As we have mentioned before, a video posted by Avonna Sunshine on TikTok has gone viral recently with accumulated views of 1.2 million. In the video, she applied the Maybelline New York fit me 340 with a rose quartz face roller to blend her foundation evenly. According to her, “Not only does it evenly distribute your foundation but the coldness of it helps to shrink your pores. So it’s gonna give a very smooth application and you gonna get full coverage this way too”.

“So, you have to think when you using a sponge or brush it soaking up some of the products. But with quartz roller, it’s just evenly distributing the product, that way you gonna use less product and you gonna get fuller coverage,” she said on the video. Well, that’s definitely one of the issues that all of us experience when applying the foundation. The makeup brush or sponge eventually soaks all of the precious product.

She stated that the idea came to her when she was sitting in front of her makeup vanity and honestly, we’re kinda glad that she posted the video. Following suit, other TikTokers like Amanda Frisch and Rissa have also put this hack to a test and documented their experience as well. To simply put it, this beauty hack received a mixture of reviews. However, those who have tried it, claim that this trick helps to deliver full coverage since the jade roller evenly distributes the product to every inch of the skin. Unfortunately, as we all have expected, blending the foundation with a jade roller actually takes some time.

If you’re thinking of adding this TikTok beauty hack into your routine, it is only right that you do it properly. So, without further ado, we have listed the step by step guide on how to use a jade roller to blend your foundation. Trust us, it is so easy peasy!

Step 1: Apply the Foundation

First of all, apply the foundation directly to your face and we recommend that you apply a generous amount on four areas, your chin, both cheeks and forehead. We know that some people prefer to coat the jade roller with the liquid foundation, however, it actually can get quite messy. Plus, by applying the foundation directly to your skin, you only need to focus on evenly distributing the product and blending it perfectly.

Step 2: Blend It With A Jade Roller

Next, grab your jade roller and start to blend the foundation with upward and outward motions. If it is your first time, it’s absolutely normal to feel overwhelming since it takes quite some time. Our advice is to proceed with the blending and pay extra attention to the streaks of foundation. One pro tip is to use the small side of the jade roller to blend the foundation on your nose area. Once you have seen the foundation blend to your skin, you are definitely done.

Is It Yay Or Nay?

We have tried this beauty hack before and honestly, it delivers the full coverage that we have been looking for. Additionally, we also noticed that it helps to conceal all of the spots and blemishes effectively, which is something that beauty blenders or makeup brushes can’t deliver. Most importantly, applying foundation with a jade roller means that we get to use less product. Imagine how many bucks we can save from this hack! However, it definitely takes more time to blend, so if you’re in a hurry or prefer a 5-minute makeup routine, using a jade roller to blend your foundation is something that you need to rethink. Apart from that, this TikTok beauty hack has our seal of approval!
