1 – Use Dark Eyeliner

Dark eye liner will really bring people into your eyes and notice them for all they are worth. You could use black, navy blue, maroon, hunter green, or just about anything else that you want. Just try to stay away from pastel pinks and other shades like that. You could use a liner pencil or liquid liner, depending on what you like. The darkness is going to be the only thing that matters.

2 – Wear Purple Eye Shadow

Purple can instantly bring out a variety of eye colors, including those in hazel eyes. Your hazels may look blue with the purple, or they may look enticingly green. Either way, they are going to stand out really well on your face. Try to go for a plum color, not something that looks like the Hamburglar. This will be much more sophisticated in the end.

3 – Use Good Blush

Blush is meant to highlight the cheek bones, but it can also emphasize the eyes. The reddish tones in any blush are going to bring out the flecks of green in your eyes, and that will make them pop next to your skin. Test out a few different colors to see what works best with your skin tone.

4 – Wear Green Earrings

Green earrings will tie in with the colors of your eyes without being directly on top of them. It’s not a good idea to use green eye shadow because it will detract from the eyes, but doing this will actually make them pop even more. You might also want to try gray, blue, teal, or some other color that matches the exact shade of hazel you have. You’ll just have to play around with the options to figure out what works for you.

5 – Use Thick Mascara

Once you put on some really good mascara, everything changes. You no longer look like a little girl playing around with makeup. You look like a sex kitten ready to pounce at any moment. If you don’t have good eye lashes, get some fake ones to add on. Then you can apply the mascara and be proud of your awesome new look.

    Im not sure if i have hazel eyes, but I do have brown eyes. One time I bought colored contacts, hazel ones. A friend of mine said that nothing has changed since it looks the same. This article really helped me in enhancing my favorite feature. I constantly use black eyeliner to amp up my eyes. 🙂
