How to: Hailey Bieber’s Gorgeous ‘Sugar Plum Fairy’ Make-Up Look 2023

Hailey does it again. Here’s a step by step guide on how to achieve her perfect winter glam.


Hailey Bieber, our makeup and skincare icon, is back at it again. This time it’s for a new sugar plum fairy make-up look.

Step one: Lay the foundation

Start by washing and moisturizing your face. Grab the Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer for a perfect base that looks just like Hailey’s. Apply it underneath the eyes and mix it outward toward the cheeks and temples. This prepares the skin to be even and beautiful.

Step two: Hailey’s Cheekbones

A delicate shape will accentuate your features just like Hailey’s. Apply your preferred contouring product, paying special attention to the hairline and cheekbones. Feel free to draw attention to the highlights of Bieber’s appearance, as her ‘Sugar Plum Fairy’ outfit radiates youth.

Step three: Blush it up

The blush extravaganza is the key to this look. Choose a bright pink blush stick, like Fleurotique by Pat McGrath. Put a lot on your cheekbones and mix it in toward the temples. By applying many layers of blush to the nose and eyes, Bieber elevates the look and achieves a pink, just-out-in-the-cold look.

Step four: Highlighter, duh

Concentrate on the eyes to simulate the glimmer of sugar crystals. On your lids, apply a sheer, shimmering white eyeshadow. Bieber goes one step further with an eye gloss that has more glitter, giving the eyes a lustrous, wet appearance that delights the senses.

Step five: Let’s POP those eyes


For this appearance, perfectly styled brows are essential. Brush and set your brows in place with a stronghold brow gel, such as Anastasia Beverly Hills Strong Hold Brow Gel. Bieber uses the Beaubble Berry Freckled Pen to apply freckles on her cheekbones and nose for extra cuteness.

Step six: LASHES!

Applying a few coats of mascara will draw attention to your eyes. Bieber achieves a defined yet natural look with the M.A.C Extended Play Gigaback Lash Mascara.

Step seven: Lip liner and Lip tint

Use a dark brownish-plum lip liner, such as the MAC Lip Liner in Cork, to outline your lips. The finishing touch is added by Bieber’s dazzling Rhode lip tint, which has a jelly bean flavor and leaves lips with a glossy, sweet finish.

Step eight: TA DA!

Take a moment to appreciate your transformation into a “Sugar Plum Fairy.” The finished image captures the essence of the Nutcracker character, ready to shine in the digital era, and is shiny, sugary, and sweet.
