Hazel eyes (which consist of gold, brown and green tones within the iris) have a unique look because of its mixture of colors. Therefore, darker eye shadows work best when determining colors that would go with your natural eye shade. Hazel eyes have the advantage of applying many eye shadow colors; depending on the make up you put on, the color of your hair, the clothes you wear or the degree of light used indoor or outdoors, the natural eye can appear to change colors. Sweep a light layer of green or brown eye shadow over the eye and add gold to the center of the eyelid and both corners to highlight the eye. The Key to making Hazel eyes stand out, is to apply colors that will bring richness and warmth to the eye; like a neutral shade of brown.

Blue eyes(which have no pigmentation, unless it is exposed to light)are one of the rarest and in some cases, rated the most sought-after eye color out there. Whether the color of your eye is hazel, baby or ocean blue, applying shades of brown to your eye lid adds depth and is complimentary. Blue eyes look great when you apply neutral eye shadow colors and are even more astonishing when you add gold and orange colors to the lower lid of the eye. To accentuate the eye use deep eye shadow colors such as browns and purples(lavender) or lighter neutrals colors: gold, peach, dusty pink and orange tones. The key to making Blue eyes stand out, is to apply warm tones and a shimmery eye shadow to the crease of the eye; also, inner and outer corners.

If your eyes are Greenish Blue, then you can also use eye shadows that correlate with Blue eyes.
