Using two very common beauty products, Dedivanovic uploaded a TikTok video detailing the illusion of an instant facelift. The artist shared his simple step-by-step process with his 422,000 followers, and of course, it went viral. First, the Master Pigment Pro Pencil was drawn onto the upper waterline and inner corner of the model, then her eyelashes were curled before he applied a tiny bit of mascara. Next, the makeup artist glued on a fake eyelash strip but made sure the outer edge of the fake lash was pointed slightly upwards. By sticking the eyelash strip onto the skin of the eyelid rather than on the lash line itself, it created the desired "lift" illusion. Mario filled the gap between the fake and real eyelashes using a simple black liquid eyeliner to top off the look.
