Start With The Color Wheel

Hazel eyes are usually a combination of Green with Brown (which in turn has reds and oranges in it).  Depending upon which colours you choose, you can make your eyes look like one colour vs the other, or even decide to bring out subtle variations like gold flecks in your eyes. 

The boldest choices will be complementary colours that are directly across the colour wheel.  You can also chose a more subtle approach with an analogous colour palette, choosing colours near whichever primary colour you want to bring out.   

Depending upon which colours you want to bring out in your eyes, you could use eyeshadows for  green or  brown eyes.  For more picks specifically for hazel eyes, check out my collection,  The Hazel Eyes Have It.

Analogous Colour Choice: Greens

Ironically, using a green on your hazel eyes will complement the brown tones, often making your eyes look more brown.

Analogous Colour Choice: Golds

Golds will pick up on any flecks of gold in your eye colour and may make your eyes look either more green or brown depending upon the shade.  Look for darker golds, lighter ones may simply wash out your eye colour.

Complementary Colour Choice: Purple and Plum


Eggplant, Purple and Plum shades will all provide a great contrast to the green in your hazel eyes, really bringing it out.  If an all over purple tone is too much for you, consider using the shade in just a liner.
