Hazel eyes are particularly unique. So, what are the best eyeshadow colors for hazel eyes? The shades of hazel can vary so much, and some people with hazel eyes actually have flecks of green, yellow or brown near the iris. What you want to do with eyeshadow and hazel eyes is to bring out that particular color and really make your eyes pop. Take a look in the mirror: are your hazel eyes closer to light brown? You might benefit from going with the best eyeshadow shades for brown eyes. Are your eyes much more green than brown? You can probably get away with the best shadows for green eyes. Having hazel eyes can make eyeshadow fun! You simply want to find the right eyeshadow shades to enhance your natural eye color.
Hazel eye make up and makeup ideas for hazel eyes are essential for how to make hazel eyes pop. One thing to remember: Make sure you're using a really high-quality eyeshadow to emphasize your hazel eyes. You want to find the best eyeshadow that offers complimentary different shades, too: a darker tone for your lash line and creases and slightly lighter tones for sweeping across your lids and just below your brow. You can choose cream eyeshadows or powders - both come in great color palettes, and both can have excellent staying power. For some great suggestions, check out this list of some of the best eyeshadows on the market.

Stick with something more the color of milk chocolate, and bring out the warmth in your hazel eyes. Top with a bronze powder, or a light dusting of something shimmery. If you really want your eyes to pop, line the lower lid with white liner for an instant 'I swear I'm awake' pick me up.

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!

Anything with gold flecks in it will catch the golden tones in your eyes, instantly warming them up and making your whole face appear warmer as a result. Pair with big lashes, bronze cheeks and natural lips for an overall bronze goddess look.

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!

Green eyeshadow shades almost always look fantastic on those with hazel eyes. If the British racing green (on this list) doesn't work out, consider trying other shades in the green family. Forest greens and olive greens look stunning on hazel eyes.
