Emphasize Eyes: Hazel

In our last complementing eye color tutorial we showed you how to use red shades to make green eyes stand out. Today we’re onto our third eye color focus: hazel! We took Sigma employee, Leah, from the operations department to be our model. Keep reading to learn more about Leah and discover the best shade for making hazel-hued eyes pop!
Leah is an operations assistant at Sigma and has been for almost 2 years now. Curious to know what it’s like to be in the shoes of Leah on an average day? She says, “I float back and forth between quality control (checking products to make sure they're up to Sigma standards), packaging the products for delivery, and also shipping out the products to our many loyal customers!"

When I asked Leah what her favorite part about working at Sigma is, she replied, “The people!!” “My co-workers all great, funny, and overall very kind. Also I love being around for the product launches -- seeing all the steps that take place from what starts out as as idea to a full-blown product down the road is really amazing.”
Leah’s favorite Sigma products include:
  • The Mrs. Bunny Collection – “All of the brushes are so soft and I love the colors of the handle and ferrule.”
  • The C&P Tool – “This makes my face feel so clean and refreshed."
  • The F45 Buffer brush – “I feel like this brush doesn't always get the credit it deserves. I use it as a corrector brush; it's great for smoothing out lines with foundation, blending in bronzer, or softening and blending your blush so it's not too drastic.
  • The Dry’n Shape – “It's really important to keep your brushes clean, and this is great way to maintain the cleanliness and shape of my brushes.”

Now let's get to the tutorial!

Note: All the eye shadows used in this look are from the Paris Makeup Palette.

1. Prep lids with a shadow base using the F70 brush to apply. (To really enhance the yes, we used the shade 'Spy' from our eye shadow base collection - coming soon!)

2. Apply the shade 'Notre Dame' onto the lid using the E55 brush from the Bunny Collection.

3. Apply the shade 'Elysees' into the crease using the E36 brush from the Performance Eyes Kit.
4. For the liner, apply the shade 'Eiffel' onto the upper lash line and 'Triomphe' onto the lower lash line, using the E65 brush for both.

5. Lastly, apply a coat of mascara and swipe of 'Rouge' blush with an F40 brush to complete the look!
