Ho ho ho, it don’t get better than this!
Even though we’re well past the Stare at a dead tree and eat candy out of a sock month, there are a few Christmas trends that have stuck on. And topping the list is, candy cane eyeliners!!
If you’ve not yet heard of candy cane eye liner look, well, do send the address of the rock you’ve been living under so that I can mail this post to you! If there’s a body part (if you can call it that) our make-up gurus are obsessed with, it’s definitely our eyelids. From glitters to smoke to wings, there is literally no chilling when it comes to eye makeup. And this time too, they have come up with something as exciting, with the candy cane eyeliner look! We have put together some of the coolest candy cane eye looks these brilliant artists have come up with (yes artists, for these are some of the greatest artworks I’ve ever laid my eyes on).
1. Keeping it simple
Well, to start off, you could literally just draw a candy cane, right under your cat eye. You can keep it simple with a simple winged liner and a cane. Or you can glam it up a little with that glitter!
2. Playing it classy
To get all the eyes on the cane, just do a perfect winged eye look with white and red liner. You can enhance the effect by outlining the candy cane liner with a black eyeliner. This creative and classy look screams “Christmas”, and not that loud!
3. For the foodie fashionista
If candy cane isn’t enough, throw in some gingerbread as well! Gingerbread has long inspired beauty enthusiasts and even has some eyeshadow palettes named after it. And now candy cane has made an entry too. Combine the classy gingerbread look with the candy cane liner and girl, you’d be looking like a gingerbread snack! (pun totally intended).
4. Digging the stripes
If you’re bored of just drawing lines, go all the way and turn them into stripes, for stripes will never go out of style! To get a more defined look, add black outline both over and under the stripes. Add some green eyeshadow to make your eyes a little more merry and bright!
5. What happens under the mistletoe, stays under the mistletoe
Ward off the evil spirits with this candy cane plus mistletoe look! Who knows, you might even get a bit luckier. (Wink, wink)
6. Glitter all the way
A dash of glitter never hurt anyone (unless it gets into your eyes). So, why not try the candy cane look with glitter itself! I know, it’s not for everyone. But the “Extraaa and I own it” kind, this would be the perfect festive look!
These were some of our top candy cane eyeliner looks. I know what you’re thinking, “soooo many looks and just a pair of eyelids?” Well, better not waste any more time and dive right in! It might take a few hundred tries to get it right, but once you do, there’s no looking back, ladies.
