Black eye shadow may not be a new thing, but in Fall 2016, it’s taking center-stage! We are seeing lots of ways to wear it – upto the brow, below the eyes, smokey eyes, winged eyeshadow and with accent color. These trends are surprisingly easy to pull off! Let’s check out these latest black eyeshadow trends and see which look is right for you!

5 Daring Ways to Wear Black Eyeshadow Every Girl Should Know

Black Eyeshadow #1 – Smokey Eyes

Black eyeshadow can be dark and daunting. Smokey eyes can really help soften the look. Personally, I love wearing black eyeshadow with a winged liner – blending deep black and charcoal grey. Add some shimmer to your eyelids to make your eyes pop!

Black Eyeshadow #2 – Below the Eye

We saw this very new and dramatic trend on the runways. The black eyeshadow applied below the eye can be worn as a night-out look. Expert advice: be subtle, or it’ll smudge before you get your first drink!)

Black Eye Makeup #3 – Up to the Brow

If you wanna try mixing patterned and smokey eyeshadow that goes upto the brow, then this is the trend for you! Wearing this trend would be a little dramatic and bold. This would be a great option for parties. Either try an ombre look with black on the lids and grey towards the brow. Or create a smokey eye with black, the wing extended up to the brows.

Eye Makeup #4 – Winged Eyeshadow

Winged eyeliner is pretty cool, but this season, consider winging out your eyeshadow! It’s suddenly a popular trend! It’s a little edgy and daring when taken upto the brow, but with the right outfit and attitude, you’re sure to pull it off!

Black Eyeshadow #5 – With Accent Color

Try black with a bright accent color to make your eyes pop! Dior showed black smokey eyes, in which we see a hint of blue color at the corner of the eyes. And on Givenchy’s Instagram, we saw black winged look, blending with the highlight color to give it a smokey eyeshadow look. You can also try a simple grey eyeshadow look mixed with a bright color like purple.
