Eye makeup on a black background

Decadent make-up is back: start by perfecting a bold, dark eye

Whether opting for a smoky lids, expertly pointed wings or loaded lashes, the only colour you’ll need this season is black.

You can’t argue with the allure of an expertly executed black-winged eye or the long slow blink of a mascara-heavy lid. If you’re a fan of such seductive beauty then you’re in luck, as over the coming months our peepers are destined to play a starring role in the return of decadent make-up. Experiment with slightly smoggy, cut-out smoky, XXL kohl or souped-up lashes: the only colour you need is black.
