If you spend time on the interwebs, it’s likely you’ve heard about ASMR — the calming, tingly sensation triggered by various stimuli ranging from whispering to tapping makeup brushes on microphones. It’s a growing community with a wide range of devotees (there’s a 100,000-member subreddit) who swear by its abilities to calm them down or help them sleep. A growing sector of the space is ASMR makeup tutorials, complete with helpful application tips and a healthy dose of tapping and whispering to stimulate the ASMR response.
