I have a confession to make. This is the first time I've ever done a Christmas eyeshadow look 😲! It's about time right? I knew I wanted to make it jusssst a little sweeter, so I added a candy cane element to this look.
You can recreate this look yourself with any red green and white beauty products you have on hand! I used 4 different eyeshadows and 4 other products to create the perfect candy cane glam.
Lipstick on my Eyes? Yep. Falsies? Check.
1) This is my first time using Dollar Lash Club lashes and I am shook. I used faux-lexi to take this look to the next level and I'm in love with how real/luxurious they look!
2-5) I used shades 2-4 in my photo above from the Colourpop palette So Jaded (my current fav palette from them). Shade 2 is a deep red called "Garnet', shade 3 is called is a glitter grinch vibe called "Emerald", and shade 4 is a subtle shimmer called "Diamond". Shade 5 is a lighter red/pink from Huda Beauty's New Nude palette in the shade "Spanked".
6) This maroon eyeliner is from the Like a Charm crème gel liner vault in the shade "Joy Ride". Did someone say joy ride on Santa's sleigh? Hm, I thought I heard something 😂.
7) Tarte tartiest lip paint in the shade "Cheerleader" is a bold and bright red that applies smooth and stays put! But I didn't only use it on my eyes...keep reading to find out more 😉.
8) I used NYX retractable eyeliner in "White" for my candy cane because it glides on smooth and covers colors pretty darn well.
Tell us the Steps Already! 🙌
Step 1. I swept "Garnet" all over my crease in a pretty messy application. Don't worry about being neat because we're going to clean it up next. This deep color adds some definition to our eyes and makes them pop!
Step 2. I applied "Spanked" in a blending, sweeping motion over the top half of "Garnet" because the lighter color helps the look blend into the skin.
Step 3. Use your favorite concealer, foundation, eye primer etc. to make a cut crease that flicks out into a wing. Experiment! You can have a cury or straight wing with this look.
Step 4. I applied the shade "Emerald" with a small flat brush all over the areas where I had concealer. You can use a makeup wipe and swipe it from your outer eye corner to your ear for a sharper wing.
Step 5. I used my white NYX eyeliner to outline the green shade and create my candy cane base. Go over this a few times to create an opaque white.
Step 6. You can use eyeshdow, eyeliner, or lipstick for this step. I took a thin tip eyeliner brush with "Cheerleader" on it to create the small, red, candy cane lines. This step is crucial for the candy cane to be recognizable. Liquid lipstick works like a dream when you want "painted" details on the lid.
Step 7. I used "Joy Ride" to line my waterline because the bottom part of my eye wanted some attention! I patted "Garnet" in the middle of my bottom lashline and blended it out with "Spanked".
Step 8. I took "Diamond" and swept it under my browbone as well as the inner eye corners to add some highlight. The little sparkles in it are perfect for this glam look. Next, I popped on my faux-lexi lashes and took a million selfies 🤩.
