Cetearyl alcohol is in reality a mixture of both stearyl alcohol and cetyl alcohol (that refer to links beneath for structures). Both of such compounds would be considered ‘fatty alcohols’ due to their long chains of carbon. The Fatty alcohols are in aliphatic hydrocarbon family. To draw the structure of ‘cetearyl alcohol’ you would really have to draw the structure of cetyl alcohol and structure of the stearyl alcohol.
