The Best Eye Makeup for Hazel Eyes The Best Eye Makeup for Hazel Eyes The Best Eye Makeup for Hazel Eyes

Having a set of hazel eyes—which contain shades of green, amber, and sometimes even blue—is a gorgeous characteristic, not to mention unique! Contrary to the more common greens and browns, however, having hazel eyes might make you feel less certain about what shades of eye makeup to wear. What’s more, hazel eyes can often appear to shift in color—which is amazing, but certainly makes it more difficult to choose the right eye shadow shade. Here, we’re sharing the best eye makeup looks for hazel eyes so you can upgrade your makeup game ASAP.

HAZEL EYE MAKEUP IDEA #1: GREEN SHIMMER

Hey, you’ve got green in there—so why not accent the natural green pigments in your eyes with a coordinating eye shadow shade. To achieve this look, simply dust the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald onto your lid, blending out at your crease. Using the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner in Black, add a thin line of black liquid eyeliner to your upper lash line, then top it all off with your go-to black mascara.

HAZEL EYE MAKEUP IDEA #2: EARTHY BROWN WITH GOLD ACCENTS

When it comes down to it, there’s pretty much nothing better than a classic neutral eye makeup look, especially for everyday activities and meetings. Best of all, it requires minimal effort and time, and it’ll compliment the brown hues in your hazel eyes.

Here’s what to do: Start by laying down a light brown base using the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe. Next, dust a darker brown shadow, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Bottomless Java, onto the outer corners of your upper lids. Your last eyeshadow step is also the most fun—adding a sleek gold accent. Dip a clean eyeshadow brush into the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow in Gilded Gold, then dust it onto the inner corners of your eyes to really make them pop. You can also add a little gold to the outer corners of your upper lid, layering the metallic pigment over your dark brown shadow. Finally, finish off with a coat of dark brown eyeliner, such as the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner in Brown, on your upper and lower lash lines. Give your eyelashes a few coats of your favorite black mascara, and your eye makeup look should be all set!

HAZEL EYE MAKEUP IDEA #3: ROSY TONES

While this may seem far-fetched, eye makeup with rosy tones is perfectly complementary to hazel eyes—especially when paired with brown eyeliner and black mascara. To create your own warm-toned eye makeup look, pick up the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Avenue Des Roses—it comes with four shades that can be mixed and matched for a variety of looks that suit hazel eyes. Here, we’re sharing one of our favorite options.

First, dust the palette’s light nude shade all over your upper eyelid. (Applying a nude base will help make the shadows that follow more vibrant.) Next, dust the light rose shade all over your upper lid. Then, place the dark brown shadow on your outer corners to give the look more depth before applying a thin line of the L'Oréal Paris Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Bronze to both your upper and lower lash lines. Finish everything off with a few coats of the L'Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Waterproof Mascara in Blackest Black and you’re ready to show off your eye-catching eye makeup.

HAZEL EYE MAKEUP IDEA #4: PRETTY PLUM

Another option that really flatters hazel eyes, but often doesn’t work for other eye colors, is wearing shades of purple. We especially love dark purple tones on hazel eyes—so pretty! Trust us, give it a try. Start by applying the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Pain Au Chocolat all over your upper eyelid and along your lower lash line. Next, layer the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Violet Beaute onto the outer corner of your upper eyelid. Your look will be close to complete after adding a little black eyeliner and a few coats of the L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara in Black, but don’t forget your brows! Especially when rocking a darker eyeshadow shade, such as deep plum, you’ll want to make sure your eyebrows don’t fade into the background. Use the L'Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel to fill in your arches and all that will be left to do is enjoy your bold brows.
