Hazel is a really cute and, in our humble opinion, underrated eye color. We mostly think of eye colors as brown, blue or green, but hazel is actually a mix of green and brown which depending on the amount of each pigment can look different in different light. Sometimes hazel eyes appear as green, sometimes they look light brown, sometimes they can even look kid of gold. When it comes to makeup – there’s a lot you can do to make those hazel eyes pop. So here are the best makeup tips and tricks for hazel eyes.
1. The best eyeshadow colors for hazel eyes are those that look good with brown or green, which means you have quite an extensive palette to work with. Nudes, earthy tones, greens and purples will work great.
2. Sometimes you don’t even need to stress about eyeshadow colors. When your eyes are so pretty you can get away with just a classic soft eyeliner look and keep the rest of the makeup neutral.
3. A bit of yellow in the inner corner is a great way to brighten up any makeup look, especially if you have hazel eyes.
4. You can also do a yellow eyeshadow on the bottom lashline for a pop of color and a fun little detail.
5. Green eyeshadow will bring out the green specks in hazel eyes. If you don’t feel like doing a whole lid of green you can use a green eyeliner or just a touch of green on the lower lashline.
6. Teal is also a great color to make hazel eyes stand out more.
7. A messy and sort of gritty looking brown eyeshadow is a great look if you’re going for something edgy.
8. A peachy or rose gold eyeshadow look always looks flattering on most people but especially so if you’ve got hazel eyes.
9. Pink is also a good choice. You can even go neon pink if you’re feeling brave.
10. Gold is a definite winner when it comes to hazel eyes. It will look good as eyeshadow, eyeliner or even highlighter.
11. Burgundy might not be the first color that comes to mind, but it does wonders to intensify the look. It looks both classy and edgy at the same time.
12. And finally purple is a good color choice for hazel eyes because it’ll compliment the brown and intensify the green in hazel eyes. But go for the light purples, since darker shades can look a bit odd.
