Get The Look: Rei Lilith’s Candy Cane Eyeliner Tutorial

Christmas is nearly here and we are all about the festive makeup looks, so when @rei.lilith came to see us and created this Christmassy candy cane eyeliner, we were obsessed with the outcome. Follow the steps below to recreate this look for yourself.

STEP ONE

Apply your base makeup as normal, then apply the Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Primer all over the lid. Next, using a dense eyeshadow brush apply the shade Cherry Soda from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar Palette into the crease, winging the shadow out at the outer edge.

STEP TWO

Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush and the shade Prick from the same palette, buff the edges of the crease shadow up towards the brow bone for a seamless finish. Deepen the crease with the shade Extraction.

STEP THREE

Cut the crease using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Primer and set it in place using the shade Glucose from the Blood Sugar Palette.

STEP FOUR

Add a hint of shimmer to the lid using the Stila Little White Lies Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade Mint Myth. Apply straight to the lid using the applicator provided, then buff into the lid using a fluffy blending brush.

STEP FIVE

Create a winged liner using an angled liner brush and the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade Drug Lord, making sure to add a dramatic point at the inner corner of the eye.

STEP SIX

Now it’s time to create the candy cane vibe. Using a fine liner brush and the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in Redrum, add delicate stripes to the white liner in the effect of a candy cane.

STEP SEVEN

Add an extra Christmassy touch by lining the cut crease with the BEAUTY BAY Liquid Crystal Solstice Eyeshadow Trio in the shade Malachite – it’s the perfect sparkly Christmas green.

STEP EIGHT

To finish the eye look, buff the shades Cherry Soda and Prick from the Blood Sugar Palette under the lower lash line and apply mascara. Add Unicorn Cosmetics 3D Vegan Silk Lashes in the style Bubble Pop, and your eyes are complete!

STEP NINE

Nothing completes a look like a red lip. Apply the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade Unicorn Blood all over the lips, then create a gradient effect by applying the Redrum Velour Liquid Lipstick onto the centre of the lips.
