Hazel eyes can be stunning due to the fact that this shade actually contains a variety of different colors. As such, those with hazel eyes often find that their eye color appears to change depending on what colors they’re wearing. Want to make the most of your hazel eyes? If so, then you’ll want to know about these hair and eye makeup tips.
Experiment With Gold and Silver Eye Shadow
Not all eye colors can get away with gold, silver, and other shimmery eye shadow, but if you have hazel eyes, you can have all kinds of fun with these types of eye shadows! You have all kinds of options when it comes to incorporating shimmer into your eyes, ranging from a bold gold eye shadow to a more subtle copper or bronze tone. Either way you go, these kinds of eye shadows will draw out the flecks of different colors in your eyes and make them pop.
Try Out Multi-Colored Eye Liner
Another great thing about having hazel eyes is that you can get away with using just about any color of eyeliner. Whereas some eye colors are limited to blacks and browns in terms of their eyeliner, those with hazel eyes can do anything from a silver eyeliner to a bold purple shade and still look amazing. So if you’ve been sticking to your “tried and true” black eyeliner pencil, it’s time to do a little experimentation with different colors. You just might be surprised at how great some less conventional shades look on your eyes!
You Can’t Go Wrong With Shades of Brunette
Okay, so we’ve gone over eye makeup tips for hazel eyes, but did you know that your hair color can have an impact on the way your eyes look as well? Generally, the best hair color for hazel eyes is a shade of brunette. However, the specific shade that will be appropriate for you can vary based on your skin tone, so you’ll want to keep that in mind as you select a shade that’s right for your eye color. And of course, if you’re not sure how a particular color is going to turn out and you don’t want to commit to it 100% just yet, you always have the option of trying a semi-permanent hair color, which will wash out.
When selecting a shade of brown for your hair, keep in mind that the idea of a brunette complementing a hazel hair color is that the brown shade will highlight the natural beauty of the green, grey, and gold flecks of color that are naturally found in your eyes.
Consider a Fun Ombre Hair Color
Just because brown shades tend to look the best with hazel eyes doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with some color. Specifically, consider a fun color trend, such as ombre hair styles; these essentially involve a gradient of colors cascading through your hair. For example, some women choose to go with a darker color (such as a brunette) at their roots and then gradually transition to a pink or purple towards the ends of the hair. When you have hazel hair, you can really get creative with this and use your ombre hair color to pull out different highlights of color in your eyes.
Above all else, when experimenting with colors in terms of eye makeup and hair to best complement your hazel eyes, you’ll want to find something that you like. It might take some time and experimentation on your part, but it will be worth it in the end when you have a look you can feel good about and that really draws attention to your unique hazel eyes.
