What’s the trend all about?
Ever thought a peppermint could actually be the inspo behind eye makeup? That’s exactly what candy cane eyeliner is all about. One of the most adorable ways to embrace Christmas cheer, this eyeliner looks exactly like the sweet candy and has become one of the most popular looks on Instagram.
How is it done?
All you really have to do is take a white opaque liner and wing it like you’d do a cat eye. Create vertical dashes using red face paint till the end of the wing. Rub any rough edges using a Q tip.

Complete the look
For a more dramatic effect, add a hint of gold eyeshadow in the inner corners of your eyes to make your peepers pop. This one might be an OTT look but hey, that’s what eye-catching holiday makeup is all about, right? So make sure you finish the look by applying lots of mascara and filling in your brows.
