There's so much creative freedom that comes with the holidays. It's one of the few times of the year when being over-the-top with your makeup look is completely acceptable. So of course, Katy Perry's glam in her recent video for "Cozy Little Christmas" is just that — over-the-top. 

In it, she rocks a striking candy cane eyeliner that everyone is ready to try, and we must say, we're mesmerized.


In case you missed it, Katy Perry just released her video for her holiday-themed tune "Cozy Little Christmas."

The festive December 2 drop proved to be an absolutely adorable yet edgy music video right in time for Christmas. In the video, Perry transforms into a sexy Christmas tree with sky-high hair, Mrs. Claus, and a candy cane martini literally sitting in a tub of milk to make the vision truly come to life. 


And while the song and costumes are intriguing, the makeup looks are truly catching everyone's attention.

Makeup artist Anthony Nguyen created corresponding makeup looks that are to die for, one of which is intricate candy cane eyeliner. The precision is inspiring and everyone is freaking out about it. "Backstage peek at my frostbitten blush and candy cane striped liner on the gorgeous @katyperry for the ‘Cozy Little Christmas’ music video, out today!" he captioned an up-close of the look. It was then paired with a cherry red lip for added glam. 


That wasn't the only festive eye look. 

Can you really ever have enough bling around the holidays? Absolutely not. "BTS look at @katyperry‘s icy eyes on set for the ‘Cozy Little Christmas’ music video out now," Nguyen said. "Tried to take this pic carefully as to not drop my phone in this giant martini glass of milk." 

Yep, we weren't lying about the giant glass of milk.

So if you want to re-create it yourself, here's how. Warning: steady hands preferred. Apply an ample amount of white gel eyeliner, like this one from Colourpop above the lash line, making sure that the line is thick enough for the decoration that's to follow.

Then it's time for the fun part. With a clean, sleek eyeliner brush, create diagonal dashes across the white liner with equal space. For added drama, wing the eyeliner on the ends. Finally, with a liner that drastic, add a falsie to finish the look masterfully. Merry Christmas!
