{beauty board} highlight your...hazel eyes!

Knowing what colors can truly accentuate your eyes can be somewhat challenging, so I thought that this would be a fun series to start. Over the next few weeks, I am going to focus on a different eye color each week - hazel, blue, brown, and green {green is the eye color of yours truly}; bringing you different palettes, products, and shadow shades that will highlight your charming color in the haute-est way possible. Beginning with…hazel!

365 Beauty Guide: Hazel Eyes

From left-to-right.

Hazel eyes are incredibly fun to play with as you have the option of bringing out the umber/topaz/golden hues with bronze shadows {as Nicole Richie often does with her drop dead gorgeous eyes}, or you can go in a completely different direction, drawing out the green undertones of your peepers with eggplant and moss green shades. Either way, the effect is jaw-dropping; and allows you to change up your look from day-to-night, or simply day-to-day.

Kyle has hazel eyes and I think they are so pretty! I love that they can change color, depending on what you are wearing. Shades like this would be awesome as well! I can't wait until you get to blue!

Great post! My eyes are green also. I love playing with eye shadows and it makes a world of difference when you know which ones look best on you.

oh love this and I have hazel eyes! Though the last year or so they've been going more green.

If I were to change my eye color, I would definitely go for hazel. It's such a pretty color. Can't wait to see what you have for brown eyes! :D
