Rumor has it crystal eye makeup is the not-so-new-but-refreshing trend to hop on. Whether your Valentine's Day plans involve you stepping out for a romantic date night con el novio, hanging with the chicas, or simply staying home (and documenting your beauty look), there's no harm in upping your makeup game with pretty embellishments that say "mírame." Aside from bringing extra attention to your peepers, crystals and gems are a fun and unexpected detail that adds plenty of character to a soft and minimal cat eye or a fierce touch to a bold eyeshadow.

But it's not just rhinestones we're talking about — pearls, tiny studs, and even stickers are taking center stage in making the windows to your soul the focal point. What's more, it's entirely up to you how little or how much you want to add — it's all about keeping your style fresh!

If you've ever dreamed of being the "Princess of Jewels" in some fantasy flick, then these gems by BH Cosmetics ($6) are for you. They come in a variety of shapes, including star, heart, diamond, and teardrop, and they're tinted in sparkly, holographic hues. We see them paired with an icy-blue eyeshadow such as Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Dream Much ($6).

The One With the Pearls

Pearls embody classic elegance, but when fixed around your eyes, they become effortlessly cool. Pair these BH Cosmetics Gem On Pearls ($6) with your favorite champagne-colored eyeshadow and glue-on lashes such as the Ardell Natural Lashes ($12) for a dramatically chic effect.

For a sweet look that's simply dazzling, we love these delicate Crystal Face Jewels from Colourpop ($7) with a slightly yellow tinge. Picture this: a pastel pink winged eyeliner like Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cupcake ($4.50) and these assembled around each of your eyes. Begin by placing one of the gems on your eye's inner corner and across your upper lid forming a rainbow, and voila! Finish off with the lengthening mascara of your choice.

Add a little rock 'n' roll to your date-night look with the golden studs of the ASOS In Your Dreams Face Gems ($11.50). Create a soft smoky eye using the Nyx Epic Smoke Liner Stick ($11) in the color of your choice. Simply line above your upper lids and below your lower lash line, and use the brush on the other end to diffuse the color. Next, add some studs, and see how it brings the attitude.
