It's the most wonderful time of the year (according to the song, anyway) and so it's no great surprise that Christmas make-up is currently trending on TikTok.
We've worn considerably less make-up in 2020 than perhaps any other year since its invention, but nothing is going to stop us from getting our holiday glow up on. And while a lot of us see Christmas as a chance to go big on our make-up looks and crack out glitter, this is a whole other level of creativity.
As is the standard for TikTok (remember space girl make-up?), these trending Christmas looks are seriously creative and take inspiration from some of the world's favourite festive movies and fairytales.
Keep scrolling for some of our favourite looks, from the wonderful to the wacky, to inspire your holiday Zoom calls. First up we have a very festive reindeer inspired look...

For the brave ones out there, transforming into an adorable reindeer could be the perfect plan for Christmas day.

Next up we have everyone's favourite grump The Grinch, who somewhat paradoxically is still a symbol of Christmastime.

What's more festive than Christmas lights? Christmas lights all over your face, I guess.
Next up, how cool is this candy cane inspired look? Nothing is more festive than a red and white colour scheme.
Sweet like candy baby ❤️🤍 IB @jennseren @colecarrigan1 #christmasmakeup #workingxmas #makeup #makeupartist #candycane♬ It's Tricky - RUN DMC
And last but not least, one of the most popular holiday fairytales, The Nutcracker. I won't lie, the talent is real but I find this one a little scary.
What should my next Xmas look be?! #christmasmakeup #makeuptransformation #nutcrackermakeup♬ HOLIDAY - Lil Nas X
Will you be attempting anything similar for Christmas day, or do you draw the line at a little glitter eyeshadow? Either way, we're feeling way more festive after watching these.
