The “Tiny Face” Makeup Challenge Is Going Viral On TikTok—And It Requires Serious Skill

The “tiny face” challenge is taking over TikTok and it requires serious makeup skills. The trend isn’t really a recent idea, but became more popular lately when TikTokers started trying the challenge.

The tiny face makeup challenge involves drawing on new facial features, which gives the impression of a smaller face when you cover up part of your face.

Typically people draw a new mouth and nose and cover the bottom half of their face, but some draw new eyes on their cheeks and cover their forehead.

The tiny face challenge became more popular after it became required to wear face masks out in public due to the current crisis. People decided to have fun creating a new face above their masks.
