According to TikTok, Classy Girls Who Go to Jazz Clubs Wear This Makeup Look

TikTok's beauty trend cycle can sometimes be enough to give any makeup enthusiast whiplash, but one theme reigns true no matter what appears on our For You pages—trends and aesthetics come and go at breakneck speed, but vibes are forever. At least, that's what came to mind when I scrolled through the app's #jazzclubmakeuptutorial page. The story of how I ended up there is fitting, as it was through the discovery of a trending sound that featured the voice of a woman proclaiming, "She wants to be a classy girl that listens to jazz" set against Dave Brubeck's 1959 recording of "Take Five."

In the past, we've definitely seen beauty trends drawn from increasingly niche aesthetics (clean girl makeup made it out of the pandemic just to be surpassed by the lively and colorful fruit girl makeup), but this one is arguably different. The makeup trend draws from musical roots that extend far beyond the lifetime of the many TikTok users who've wholeheartedly embraced the trend and leans heavily into an sleek and sultry makeup look worn by someone who would attend a jazz show. Below, I've detailed how to achieve the "jazz club" makeup look using TikTok's most viral eye shadows, lip products, bronzers, and more.
