Ariana Grande Poked Fun At Herself On TikTok Over Her Past Winged-Eyeliner Phase, And It's Relatable

    We've all been there...

    Who hasn’t looked through past photos and wondered, “What was I thinking?” I know I have — and so has Ariana Grande.

    In a TikTok promoting her cosmetics brand R.E.M. Beauty, Ariana poked fun at her former beauty look — specifically, the iconic "thick cat eye" and "overdrawn lips" phase.

    In the video, the "current," more natural-faced Ariana asks the "past" Ariana, who is drawing on winged eyeliner, whether her eyes are a little too smoky. The "past" Ariana, as she continues to thickly apply winged liner, retorts, "Yeah, I'm going through a phase. Is that okay with you?"

    The video is layered over a past clip of Kim Kardashian criticizing Kris Jenner's one-time love of a smoky eye.

    And it's kind of funny/interesting because, you know, Ariana's one-time fiancé is Pete Davidson, who dated Kim Kardashian after her divorce from Kanye.

    These days, Ariana has been rocking a more subdued look, as she’s been filming the anticipated Wicked films in which she plays Glinda the Good Witch.

    But cat-eye beauty fans, I think it's safe to say this is just a light-hearted, self-deprecating video, as just a few weeks ago, Ariana demonstrated her winged eyeliner technique...which is a relief, because IMO winged eyeliner is forever!!
