North West is shaping up to be quite the budding makeup artist. Kim Kardashian's eldest child has grown up around top-tier glam teams, and it sure looks like she picked up more than a few tips while hanging out with her mom. And those tips were put to good use while transforming Kim from the glamorous SKIMS founder we know and love to another iconic pop culture figure.

Kim posted a cute TikTok of North turning her into the Grinch, just in time for the holiday season. The video, set to the classic "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" from the animated adaptation, features North playing the role of the makeup artist as her mother sits in a robe in her glam room. 

First, North covers Kim's face with concealer and blends it in before painting her skin green á la the Dr. Seuss creature who hates Christmas. Then, once Kim's visage is coated in a thick layer of lime green, North takes a green pencil and draws on the Grinch's features around her mother's nose and lips.

Honestly, the transformation is pretty great; we can totally see North teaming up with Kim's makeup artist bestie Mario Dedivanovic in the future or curating a "Kylie Cosmetics X North West" collection with her aunt Kylie Jenner one day.

This isn't the first time North has shared her seasonal makeup skills on TikTok. As noted by E!, the nine-year-old turned herself into Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in 2021 and lip-synched a snippet of dialogue from The Grinch. In 2020, she and Kim used Kylie's Grinch collection to paint their faces Grinch green. 

The Kardashian-Jenner family has many holiday traditions, and it sure looks like the festive makeup transformations are now part of their canon. Will we be seeing Saint as Santa or Grandma Kris Jenner as Frosty the Snowman on North's TikTok sometime soon? We can only hope!
