I truly believe that I look like two completely different people before and after makeup. When I wake up, my hair is a frizzy, knotty mess and my pimple cream from the night before is still plastered on my face — I’m basically the antithesis of put-together. But fast forward through some hair styling, foundation applying and mascara swiping, and I’m a brand new woman. Thanks to TikTok, I know I’m not alone  — there’s even a beauty challenge to help showcase some amazing transformations. The “My Name Is Margo” TikTok challenge showcases people going from just-rolled-out-of-bed (My name is Margo) to glammed-up (They call me Tiago) in a matter of seconds. Take a look at a few of my favorite transformations, below. 

At-Home Hair Color 

Given that hair salons were closed for quite some time, it’s no surprise that Victoria Lyn decided to do some DIY hair color. The transformation is phenomenal, too. The hot pink hair is stunning, is perfect for summer and will for sure have everyone doing a double take. 


Hi, Mikayla Noguiera, this is our formal request for a step-by-step makeup tutorial. Her foundation is flawless, covers up every blemish and redness and still manages not to look cakey in the slightest. And don’t even get us started on the bold wing and sea green eyeshadow. Obsessed is an understatement. 

Some Neon Action 

Aiden McGuinness goes from bare faced to wearing neon green eyeshadow the second the beat drops. And, WOW. The blending is next-level and we love the contrast between the army green shade on the eyelid and the neon yellow and green near the brow bone. It’s a show-stopping look, for sure. 

Pretty in Pink 

Now that some social distancing restrictions are lifting (depending on where you live), you might  be heading outside with a face mask on and playing up your eyeshadow so you still look glam. For some inspo, take note of Alexandra’s gorgeous pink eyeshadow look. It’s perfect for summer and is bound to make your eyes pop. 

Emerald on the Eyes 

For a mesmerizing Margo to Tiago transformation, press play on this clip from Karina Brooo. While she looks great with no makeup, we can’t stop staring at how stunning she looks with a glossy nude lip and emerald-colored eye. Can we talk about that cut crease, you guys?!
