Remember the TikTok Space Girl challenge? The Frances Forever song has now inspired a whole new wave of make-up videos, and the resulting looks are seriously good.

The social media app is home to what feels like an endless number of beauty trends, tutorials and online challenges, be it Ariana Grande's 60s eyeliner, slugging skincare or this game-changing winged liner hack.

It's also the place you'll find things like this hack for checking your beauty products' expiry dates, hot chocolate bomb drink tutorials and before and afters of rice water for hair.

In a nod to the aforementioned song, Beauty TikTokkers are now creating incredible make-up looks inspired by outer space, with more than 140 million videos under the hashtag #spacegirl.

Spoilers: some of these looks are so good, you won't believe that they're not using a filter. First up is a seriously silvery look by TikTok user @sianblighmua.

How good is this green alien inspired look? Is anyone else getting serious The Sims vibes? Just me? OK then.

"I'll be finding glitter in my hair for weeks" – yeah, you probably will, @morgainemaide. In fact I think I have some in my hair just from watching this.

"Not to be dramatic but I've had this song on repeat for three days", writes user Abby Roberts, who inspired the previous look. After writing this I too will have this song in my head for three days.

Of course, there's really no need to stick to the space theme at all, as this cinnamon bun proves. I don't make the rules.

This lot get top marks for effort, that's for sure. Will you be giving this one a go? If you start practising now you'll have it nailed by Halloween 2021. 

Now I just need to get that song out of my head...
