To recreate this trend, do as follows:

  1. Launch TikTok.
  2. Find a video participating in the trend (search ‘Euphoria eye trend’ in the Discovery tab) and click on the ‘Feel Something’ audio scrolling across the bottom of the video.
  3. Tap the pink ‘Use this sound’ button.
  4. The Euphoria filter should automatically be applied, but for the first part of this trend you need to switch it off. Tap the effect tab in the bottom left corner, and tap again on the Euphoria effect to turn it off for now.
  5. Zoom in on your eye with the front camera as the song plays, then close your eye on the word ‘again’ and stop filming.
  6. Next, go into the ‘Effects’ tab in the bottom left and tap on the Euphoria filter again to switch it back on.
  7. Use the flip button in the top right to switch to the back camera.
  8. Then, point the camera at your other eye (this is so the two videos match up.) For best results, sit near a light source like a lamp.
  9. Starting with your eye still closed, press record, then open your eye in time with the music.
  10. When you’re done, press the pink tick in the bottom right to watch your results back.

It might take a few tries to get it all matched up perfectly with the right timings, but the results are definitely worth it.
