So, it is essential to know the right combination of shades. The shades of eyeshadow, eyeliners, and mascara should be well coordinated to result in a beautiful look. Here are a few tips to help you out.
Makeup Tips
Eyeshadow
Purple Makeup
We first focus on the eyeshadow as it is the most important component of any eye makeup. The eyeshadow shades that work best for hazel eyes is the mauvish-purple color tones. These shades work very well in bringing out the natural shade of the eyes.

Another option that works really well are tones of brown. Eye shadow of pearl, peach, and light rose shades can also help to play up the hazel eyes.
Eye Makeup
For a more dramatized look, try using shades of deep green, especially khaki. Purchasing eye shadows in color palettes would be a good way to obtain all the suitable shades for makeup.
Eyeliner

A dark brown eyeliner would be the best for hazel eye makeup, though other shades like green would also work well. However, make sure that the eye liner color that you use is not an extreme contrast with the eye shadow color.
Eye With Sexy Black Liner
Black or gray are also good options. Green eyeliner can be used, in case you want a dramatized or smoky eye look.
Mascara

A dull brown mascara and a black gold mascara, apart from the black and transparent mascara are the best options for you.

Please, do not try using a green or a blue mascara, because it will only end up over-dramatizing the eyes, thus ruining the eye makeup. Besides, no shade of blue really works well with hazel eyes. Sticking to shades of brown will be the wise thing to do.
Applying the Makeup

Step# 3: Choose the shade of the eyeshadow that you would like to apply. Now, the question is how to apply eye shadow? Take the darkest shade of the eyeshadow and apply it to the crease of your eyelid. The application should be even, start from the inner corner of the eyelid, and move towards the outer corner.

You can also use a shimmer liner instead of the eyeliner, if the shade of eyeshadow that you are using is more on the neutral side.
