Believe it or not, green is one of the components of hazel. So, it makes sense that putting green next to hazel will bring out the green tones in your eyes. In this case, being a green-eyed monster is definitely a good thing! British racing green is a bit darker and more exotic than other shades of green, but putting it on lids (particularly in the crease) can really make some shades of hazel eyes pop!
Burnt sienna can be an excellent eyeshadow color for many different eye colors, including hazel. This shade is definitely in the "brown" category, though it's more of a mid-range brown with a hint of rust (and definitely darker than bronze). If your hazel eyes have flecks of light brown in them, wearing burnt sienna could really bring that out. Try blending the burnt sienna with other shades (including bronze and a more classic brown) for high drama.
Carnelian is another great shade of eyeshadow that can really make hazel eyes look incredible. This shade is quite similar to burnt sienna, though it's a bit more on the red end of things. I've seen several different shades of carnelian - ranging from a lighter color to a dramatic, smoky dark. If you're going with a darker carnelian on your hazel eyes, use a light touch. Layering is important. Start with just one sweep of shadow and, if that's not enough, gradually add a little more.
Cerulean blue is such a beautiful shade, so it's not surprising that it makes for a simply breathtaking shade of eyeshadow. Hazel-eyed women would be well served to check this color out. Cerulean is typically a deep blue, but it can also be more of a sky blue color. If you're going for high drama, sweep cerulean shadow over your entire lid. If you have hazel eyes with a hint of blue in them, this will really emphasize your natural color.
Cyan is another excellent shade of blue that can bring out the most gorgeous tones in your hazel eyes. Cyan is similar to cerulean, but more on the aqua-blue shade of things. I've seen women with hazel eyes wearing light aqua shadows that were incredible - but I've also seen some daring hazel-eyed women wearing a more "electric blue" shade of cyan. This is one of those exotic shades you'll want to experiment with a little before you step out the door. If you get it right, it will be stunning!
*Tip: You can also mix cyan eyeshadow with some shades of green for an added, super-dramatic effect!
Ah, silver shadow! Silver shadows are a must when creating a true smoky eye effect - especially when you have hazel eyes. Silver is wonderful, because it blends so beautifully with so many other eyeshadow shades. Try using silver as your base shadow and then blending some of these other hazel eyeshadow colors over it. If you're really going bold, add a super-dark gray or even a black eyeshadow over it.
Whether your hazel eyes have more green in them or more brown, violet and plum shades of eyeshadow can really enhance the natural color. A light violet or plum on the lids can really bring out the beauty in hazel eyes - but so can a darker, stronger purple shade. Combining the two? That can be eyeshadow glory!
