This may be tricky for some so I'll try to keep it simple. I in no way mean to insult you. Just dealing with the public on eyes an eye color on a daily basis, I'm quite aware that the average person believes he knows much more than he does and is usually wrong. So here it goes regarding mixed eye color:
Very Light Mixed Eyes - Any of the following combinations: blue, green and/or grey. The colors must be mixed together for it to be a true mix. The eyes appear to change colors according to lighting.
Light Mixed Eyes - Any of the above combinations mixed with brown. This could be blue and brown; blue, green and brown; green, gray and brown; etc. The eyes appear to change color according to lighting.
For Very Light Mixed or Light Mixed Eyes, you may call them a "blue mix", a "green mix", a "grey mix" and even a "brown mix" if you'd like. However, these particular mixes are never, ever properly called "hazel" because hazel is a color of its own.
Mixed Eyes - Mixed Eyes are the above with a balance of both light brown and dark brown pigment. In other words, green eyes with an equal balance of light brown and dark brown mixed or blue, grey and green eyes with an equal balance of light brown and dark brown mixed. The eyes appear to change color according to lighting.
Hazel Eyes - Hazel Eyes are the only Medium Mixed Eye Color, and they are in the middle between blue eyes and black eyes on the Scale. Hazel eyes are usually light to deep brown with a small or signifcant admixture of golden, red and/or green pigment that becomes well seen and prominate in brighter lighting conditions such as sunlight. Looking closely at a hazel eye, you could see the lighter colors throughout. However, from a distance, they appear to be brown.
In conclusion, everyone's eyes look darker from a distance. To know your true eye color or the true eye color of another, you should look at their eyes in direct sunlight - Not just sunlight but direct sunlight.
If your eyes are blue, green and brown, you could call them a "blue mix" or a "green mix". If your eyes are grey, green and brown, you could call them a "grey mix" or a "green mix". If your eyes two-tone green and brown, that is a "green mix". BUT if your eyes are gold and brown, your eyes are hazel. If your eyes are red and brown, your eyes are hazel. If your eyes are gold, red and brown, your eyes are hazel. And if your eyes are gold, red, green and brown, your eyes are hazel. What hazel eyes could never be is any mixed shade of blue, grey or two-tone green.
