Smokey eyes: Try bringing your makeup to an entirely new level, in the form of a dark and edgy smokey eye. To perfect the look, try emphasizing your eyelids with smudged charcoal grey and black eyeshadows, along with loads of mascara. Kohl-rimmed eyelids and bold eyebrows help to complete your makeup look.

Black glitter: For a seductive take on the trend, try darkening your upper eyelids with shimmering black eyeshadow. The inclusion of glitter helps to offer a slightly seductive feel, while luxurious long eyelashes are a finishing touch.

Crazy graphic liner: If you are in the mood for makeup that is quite literally eye-catching, look no further than the trend of wild graphic eyeliner. Use black liquid liner to craft swoops and swirls of over-the-top patterns around your eye area. Top off your newly crafted beauty statement with silver glitter, and allow your eyes to truly steal the spotlight.
