Red Lips & A Punch Of Pink

Glam up your candy cane eyeliner look with a bold red lip. Then apply pink eye shadow above the crease for an extra punch of color.

Big Drama

Go all out with that candy cane eyeliner by covering your entire eyelid. Gradually get thinner at the outer edges to create a cat-eye for extra drama. Then, use a deep red lip color to complete your look.

Classic Christmas Colors

Start with green eye shadow and create a thin candy cane design, just above the upper lash line. Pair with a red lipstick for a makeup look in classic Christmas colors.

Outlined Eyeliner

Using black eyeliner to outline the candy cane design will add more drama and really make your eyes pop. It creates a sort of pop art effect, which is cool for those less-traditional ladies.

Shimmer Like Gold

A candy cane eyeliner look won't necessarily make your eyes sparkle. But, if you apply a shimmery gold eye shadow above the eyeliner, you'll get a holiday glow that's straight up perfection.
