This Brilliant Artist Just Sleigh-ed The Holiday Makeup Game

And it took just over four hours.

The closer we get to the holiday season, the more and more seasonal makeup-looks come up on our newsfeeds. But amidst a season of candy cane eyeliner and perfecting our holiday party lipsticks, this self-taught, Canada-based makeup artist has just blown every other look out of the beauty world water.

Nine eyeliners and four hours later, 17-year-old Ali Nordahl (Yes, she's only 17!) had created a dream-like winter wonderland — all backed by her own eyelid canvas. The starry night scene was complete with the cutest little reindeer, a present under the tree, a north star, and even a winged layer of snow on the ground — err, lash line.

While it's obvious she has mastered spreading holiday cheer (onto her eyelids), Nordahl has countless looks on her Instagram page @cakefacedali, ranging everywhere from delicate floral looks to festive alien eyes.

TBH, all we want for Christmas is to have this artist's incredible self-taught abilities and her obviously insane patience!
