...but then along came 19-year-old professional MUA Nasia Belli with her super-christmassy winged eyeliner (the gingerbread man, though!) and it's safe to say she has blown every other face painter out of the water.
WARNING: You're going to want to spend hours in front of the mirror giving each look a whirl, so cancel those weekend plans, pronto!
Putting the 'art' into make-up artist, Instagram-famous Nasia has totally re-invented the classic wing in time for the festive season, and we'd be lying if we said we weren't incredibly jealous of her insane ability to take eyeliner from meh to AH-MAZING in the flick of a brush.
Of course, the MUA - who is a huge fan of purse-pleasing beauty brands such as NYX and benefit - has taken to none other than Instagram to give beauty-obsessives a good look at what she can do, and she's racking up the followers by the second.
Our favourite look? The little gingerbread man hanging on to her sharp-as-hell wing by a striped candy cane, duh, but the oh-so-cute penguin, complete with a glitter cut crease (obviously), is a close second.
Scroll down to feast your eyes on the rest of the Christmas make-up magic and be sure to give her a follow @nasiabelli. P.S. Is it still too early to put up the Christmas tree?!
SO COOL, we can't even deal.
