The holidays are quickly approaching, so it’s time to start planning your festive-wear. If you’re looking to stand out at your Christmas party from all of the ugly sweaters, how about giving this festive candy cane eyeliner a go.
For makeup lovers, the holidays are a time of year when extra glitter is a necessity; and red lipstick is pretty much mandatory. However, this year beauty vloggers have taken to Instagram with a series of candy cane eyeliner looks. The trend, which was also popular last year, has recently been brought back by Florida-based makeup artist Alexandra Sanchez.
These days, beauty trends have become even more seasonal and funky. So, if you’re looking to replicate the look, sketch out the candy cane pattern on your eyelid using khol or liquid eyeliner. Start by tracing a line using the white product, then add vertical red stripes along the wing.
Alexandra showed off her skills by pairing the intricate eyeliner with a bold red lip and a fluttery pair of eyelashes. There’s no shortage of video tutorials on how to get this fun look. But if you choose to use candy cane eyeliner, it’s sure to be a hit at any holiday party.
