i’ve never been able to define my own eye colour (which garners many an odd look from others). there’s a ring around the pupil that’s a bright rusty orange (with a slight tinge of brown), and the rest of the iris changes from greyish to blueish to greenish (although whatever colour it is always has a greyish hue to it).
so i thought, “well, why don’t you see what hazel eyes are?” and durned if i can find an actual answer! i get results that say anything from “light golden brown” to “greeny blue”. so is hazel a catchall phrase for “i don’t know what colour it is!” ?
i know people used to think that eyes were only blue or brown, and no inbetween (at least if my old “guess who” board game is to be trusted :p), but now it seems to be “brown, blue, green, grey, black, and hazel”. but hazel apparently is a catchall phrase (or people are using it incorrectly).
so, my friends, what exactly is the colour of hazel eyes?
