Going to extremes for beauty is nothing new. People have been manipulating their bodies to fit the latest trends since the beginning of time, from makeup to plastic surgery. Even with that vast history of body modification, the latest trend may be taking things a step too far.
The TikTok Lip Glue Challenge has people gluing their lips to their faces so they appear bigger.
Yep, you read that right. To complete the challenge, all you have to do is glue your top lip to your face so it appears plump. And then pray that the glue holds it there. Here’s the TikTok that sparked the movement:

Part of the key to making the big lip trick work is to coat your lips in lipstick after they’ve been glued.

But even still, most of the results of the challenge are pretty funny.
Okay, they’re REALLY funny.
Even kids are getting in on the trend.

Of course, in order to make it work, there’s that awkward chunk of time while you wait for the glue to dry.

Gluing your lips is definitely a lot cheaper and easier than getting surgery or injections. But, it’s definitely a much more difficult beauty routine to maintain.
I tried that lash glue lip lift thing for shits and giggles and… I have to invest in lipfiller now, I always only ever wanted to get the middle of my top lip lifted pic.twitter.com/Xykx0gZYGK

But, as long as the glue you’re using is non-toxic, I guess there’s no harm in adding a little glue to your rotation of beauty tools.
I wonder which arts and crafts tools will end up being beauty hacks next.
