Even if prom is a month or two away, you should already be thinking about how you want your makeup done. If you figure it out in advance, you can practice the look so that you know you like it – and if you don’t, you have plenty of time to pick a new look that you actually love.
While you can of course wear whatever color you want, you might want to consider specific eye makeup for the color of your eyes. Different eye colors can be played up with certain hues to enhance your eyes and make them look even nicer. If you have hazel eyes, the good news is that you can wear almost anything – your eye color is very versatile. But the best shades for hazel eyes are warm browns and greens, golds and bronze, and deep purple. The browns, golds, and greens will bring out the colors in your eyes you want to enhance, while the purple will make a nice contrast.
But picking an eye shadow look out of these colors is still really difficult. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, here are 12 easy prom makeup ideas for hazel eyes. Bring in the picture if you’re getting your makeup done, or use the tutorials some of these have to do them yourself. Oh, and by the way: these are perfect for prom, but really work for any event!
