Chances are, your eye colour tends to change depending on your mood or what you wear, and that’s because hazel eyes have so many different tones in them. The best part about this? You can play around with different eye makeup hues depending on which colours you’d like to bring out in your eyes - lucky you! Here are our five best picks to make your hazel eyes pop:
NYX Professional Makeup’s Slim Eye Pencil in Gold Shimmer is just what you need to highlight the gorgeous gold and bronzy flecks in your eyes. Line your eyes with a gold-tinted liner and finish off with lashings of a mascara of your choice.
The same applies to any shade of green. If you’d like to make your hazel peepers appear greener, use a dark beetle-green shadow swiped all over the lids and blended out with a fluffy brush for a sexy night-time look. Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow in Loaded is our go-to.
Earthy brown shadows and liners work wonders on hazel eyes by enhancing their underlying chocolatey richness. Instead of a traditional smoky eye with charcoal hues, stick to different tones of brown (graduating from a light sand all the way to a dark chocolate). The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette by Maybelline has all the neutral shades you could ever need.
Just like with green eyes, purple sits on the opposite side of the colour wheel for hazel beauties, and an eggplant shade, specifically, contrasts them beautifully. Smoke out your top and bottom lash lines with this colour and then line the rims of your eyes with a deep eggplant pencil, such as Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Rockstar, for a sultry look.
