The best eye makeup won’t look attractive if the skin it is being applied to is not prepared carefully. Start by cleansing the entire face with a mild soap or cream cleanser and patting it dry. Apply a moisturizer to the entire face, including the eye area. Including this step will help the makeup to spread easier and create a more attractive appearance.

A good eye makeup for hazel eyes for daytime wear includes an eyeshadow in a brown shade which complements the wearer’s skin tone. Choosing an eyeshadow palette with more than one shade can work very well for this purpose. The lightest color is applied under the eyebrow as a highlighter, and the darkest one is applied to the crease of the eyelid. The medium shade is reserved for the rest of the lid. Using these three shades in the same color palette helps to create a coordinated makeup look.

Other good choices for eye makeup for hazel eyes are gold tones, since this color picks up on any light flecks in the wearer’s eye color. Plum tones also look attractive on a person with this eye color. A woman may not immediately think of using pink as an eyeshadow color, but it does make an attractive look for times when the woman wants a soft, natural appearance.

To draw attention to the eye and make this area of the face stand out, consider using eyeliner in a brown tone to the upper lid only. Black eyeliners are available, but this choice may be too harsh for most women. If someone really likes black eyeliner, it can be saved for times when an evening look is being created and a more dramatic makeup is desired.

To finish the process of applying eye makeup for hazel eyes, use a brown or brownish-black mascara to apply some color to the eyelashes. This step will serve to open up the eye area without being too harsh. Hazel eyes can be very beautiful and skilful makeup application will enhance a woman’s appearance.
