The Candy Cane

You’ll need: Red and white eyeliner (Try Makeup For Ever Aqua Liner in Iridescent Red and L’Oréal Paris Double Extend Eye Illuminator Eyeliner)

Starting from the inner corner of your eye, draw three thick white lines with two spaces in between them and wing out the last line (at the outer corner of the lash line). Then, fill in the gaps with you red liner and underline the wing for some candy cane sweetness!

Christmas Lights

You’ll need: Green and red eyeliner (Try L’Oréal Paris HiP High Intensity Pigments Color Truth Eyeliner)

A very chic-yet-simple way to add some holiday cheer to your look is by replacing your black eyeliner with a red one! Draw a thick red line and line it up top with a dazzling green!

Gold Ribbons

You’ll need: Gold eyeliner (try NYX Glam Liner Aqua Luxe Collection)

Step up your everyday cat eye with a velvety metallic gold eyeliner. Make sure to extend your wing for some added drama!

Silver Bells

You’ll need: Silver eyeliner (try Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Bobby Dazzle)

Light up your eyes by using a shiny silver liner! Make sure to keep your eyeliner neat and tight for a subtle sterling twinkle!

Pumpkin Spice

You’ll need: Orange and light gold eyeliner (try Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner)

Begin by drawing a wide orange line along the top lash line. Make sure you follow the natural shape of your eyes and extend the line outwards. Fill in your lid (up to the crease) with the light gold liner.
