Match your eyeshadow to your eye colour: Hazel eyes

Never Too Much Sparkle! is having another Makeup Showcase and the theme this time is Match your eyeshadow to your eye colour.  Having hazel eyes, at first I wasn't sure what to do for this. Mainly was wondering what colours to use as my eye colour may change due to surroundings, makeup colours I am wearing as well as if I'm in false lighting or natural light. In general they tend to look golden olive green to me, but often they can appear gold or a dark green. Taking a closer look there are a variety of colours and I have these pale green rings in both of my eyes that I never even noticed until a follower of mine commented about it. Wha? Green rings? How come I never noticed before?! Weird.
At any rate I've always loved my eyes as I can wear pretty much any eyeshadow and get away with it. Here's my interpretation of my eye colour.

  1. You did a great job matching all the colors in your eye.. its rare to see truly hazel eyes a lot of hazels are green with just some yellow around the very center

  2. Pretty, you nailed it! Both your eyeshadow and your eyes look beautiful. ;)
