Flashy Candy Cane Eyes

By  |  19 Comments

This is the result of just playing around, attempting to make a christmassy look that had a bit of Leesha flair to it :) A long time ago I remember seeing someone who did a candy cane look that was just diagonal stripes across their lid and lower lid, and I took that memory and put my own twist on it: adding glitter, and turning it into a smokey look, because I felt like the stripes on their own weren’t really finished.

    Ohhhh emmmmm geeeee! So so so so pretty :) I really like it a lot. Not only that but is is actually wearable. I can for sure wear this out for a pretty hot Christmas party :) And this is sooooooooooooo much cuter and better than michelle phan’s candy cane eye look. I’m not hating on mp…but its just my humble opinion. Thanks xsparkage for being colorful, and daring and for doing cool makeup tutorials “outside the box” ;)

    I love this. I think if I recreate it, I’m going to do green in place of the purple/maroon. That’ll rape some eyes. Thanks Leesha!

    How does Liquid Candy compare with Benefit’s Shelaq? This video was very persuasive to me and I totally want it but Shelaq is a lot easier for me to get…!

    I did this look for my family Christmas with my sisters. It was so much fun and I received a lot of compliments… plus the little kids loved it so much. My husband was surprisingly very fond of it, he took photos of me with my eyes closed. What a great look!!! Thank you!!!

    Hi! Great tutorial, I love the fancy looks. How long does the Eye Kandy Liquid Sugar Glitter Adhesive take to set once you’ve mixed and applied to the skin?

    Beautiful make-up, so I can not, perhaps through your films to teach. Can you give me a number of brushes that you use the mac? Sorry for the mistakes but I do not speak English. I’m from Polish.
