Black eye makeup is very popular. Just a bit of kohl lining and it instantly lifts your face and you are ready to face the world. The simple kohl lining in the eyes immediately makes them look beautiful and mystical. The black eye makeup is the trend forecasted for spring 2012, though it is there to stay and a trend that will never go out of fashion and always provide a quick fix for your eyes.

Black Is Also For The Handsome

Black is a classic color and men love it too!! There are a plethora of gadgets in sleek and shining black. The black colour exhibits power, sophistication and is very authoritive. Henry ford said about the model T that “People can have the Model T in any colour--so long as it's black”. Cars, gadgets, accessories and shoes everything looks stunning in the shiny black.

Sophisticated And Trendy Black Interiors For Your Home And Office


These days black interiors are also very much in fashion. Couches, pillow covers, rugs all in various combinations with black and you have gorgeous beautiful interior. Black coloured wall tattoos are also very much in trend and look extremely great.


Considering the trend of black and the fact that black is here to stay many products are being designed and manufactured in black. It is not only the living room and the bed room that is influenced by black but also the bathroom that has various black accessories and black combination interiors.


There are some reputed brands that have recently introduced black Single Ended Roll Top Baths collection to meet the modern day requirements. There are also various black coloured accessories available for the bathroom as well as the home interior.

Combining Black and white:


Black and white complements each other and emphasise the importance of each other’s existence. The very well known yin yang symbol is also in black and white and emphasises exactly that.


Black can be combined with various colours white, red, green, blue and even yellow for a very chic and trendy look. With slight tint of a brilliant colour showing through black looks extremely classy. Black is a colour of rebellion, it is both positive and negative and it should be used just in the right manner for a positive powerful, sophisticated and a beautiful effect. It should be balanced out with lighter shades, black combined with diamonds, look extremely rich and sensuous, black with red has also been a very loved combination and a trend for long time. The midnight blue is another colour in trend and the color also gets its shade with the combination of black with blue. The beautiful black also gels well with silver, gold various other materials.

      Great photos and tips about upcoming trends. Only problem with wearing black in our house is that the cat hair and dog hair show up nicely on it. Oh well...anyone knowing us is aware that we are pet lovers. We carry a little of them with us practically everywhere we go. :))

      Black has always been unstated and I suppose misunderstood. It can be used as an interracial color in many application, fashion, design or to accent beauty.

      I love black colour furniture too, and I can only enjoy that in hotel and public places with such design. Unforunately, in my house, black colour will attract mosquitoes.

      However, wearing black is not a problem. It looks professional too.

      Hi nell!! oh i love punk and steam punk as well:)). Never tried it on myself but i love the look, and i personally dont like black lipstick but i think thats also trendy these days. And why black eye makeup can look great on you. You can have nice kohl lined eyes with black maskara and you can smoke up the kohl on the eyelids, use it instead of a liner. and no eyeshadow!! it looks great, give it a try young lady!! youll feel great :))

      Hi random creative!! yes what u say is right and also black needs to be used carefully specially for interiors, if overdone or too much of black combined with similar dark or grey shades can give a dead look to the room. it should be combined with the right colours in the right amount to look trendy.

      Black has always has been one of my favorites - especially for clothes. From stockings to make up! This color is flattering on most body types, goes with most everything and seams to be timeless! Nothing like a little Black dress, or a little Black Bath for one classy evening! Rated up and awesome!!!! Good ob Carrie!

      drbj and sherry 6 years ago from south Florida

      Black has always been one of my favorite dress-up colors, carrie, for two reasons. First, you can accessorize with almost anytning, and second when traveling if you confine yourself to black and just one other color, you don't have to pack so many clothes.

      Hi, Oh this is great! I love my little black dresses, and believe it or not, I know I don't look old enough!!!! ha ha but I used to be a punk back in the day, so black makeup was all I seemed to use! nice to see it coming back, better not wear it now though, I may look a bit silly! lol great hub as always, nell

      That was a Fun read Carrie as well as Informative. I have my Basic Black Dress and it never seems to go out of Style...I've got a long one and a Cocktail Length, each can be dressed up or kept simple.

      Fun topic! Black seems to have gotten a bad rap lately, I think because it became so overused as a neutral. A lot of fashion shows and whatnot really push other neutrals, but black is still a great classic.

      Completely agree with the title of your hub, carriethomson. Whether it is a lady's short black dress or a man's tailored black dress pants, it is always a powerful and classy fashion statement. And I completely agree with your other statements about the color black. Enjoyed your hub.
