Without a shadow of a doubt, TikTok has been our favorite pastime while social distancing. We obsessed over the makeup in a cup challenge, mastered the shape-shifting challenge voice over and used the beauty mode trend as an excuse to wear something other than pajamas. The newest beauty trend to make its way to the TikTok scene? The pass the brush challenge, where friends can virtually pass the glam-giving, makeup brush baton to one another. It’s proof that nothing can come between a group of BFFs and their love of getting glam. To see which videos were watching on repeat and to see some of your favorite stars taking part in the challenge, keep reading.

We thought it was impressive for people to put on some concealer and mascara while social distancing and working from home, but the girls in this video take their makeup to a whole new level. We’re talking sunset-inspired face makeup, graphic eyeliner and color-blocked eyeshadow. This is a great video for some fun and out-of-the-box makeup inspo.
