  • I think if you went with out eyeshadow it would look best. Try using eyeshadow as an eyeliner (chocolate brown would look nice), it looks much softer & will blend in better. Some black mascara, blush (cover girl shade cappuccino) & lipgloss in a neutral color and you should be all set!! Hope that helps a little.

  • Visit the make-up counter at a department store and ask their advice on colors and what not. It's usually free and they are experts on it.....try Macy's or marshal fields

  • Something natural, like a light brown or beige, even a light pink would look very pretty with the dress. Good Luck

  • do a shimmery white over your whole lid. then just brush a light coating of a soft pink over your lid up to the crease. do a soft brown eyeliner. (i use an eyeliner brush and eyeshadow instead of an eyeliner pencil since this way blends best for me.) slip on the mascara. do a soft rose lipstick and blush. everyone looks good in pink.
    have fun.

  • Try to stay away from anything too shimmery....it does not photograph well!! You will end up looking like you did your make-up in the '70's!! Stay with what you are used to, just a little darker...so that it does show in photographs. GOOD LUCK!!

  • Went to your profile and saw a crisper pic of you. I am a Texas Certified Makeup Artist  so I just love doing this. Fist off for you stay away from white or shimmer it will make you ashy or sick looking. You need pinky bronze colors, and a soft eye. You want to have a polished look but not to outshine the bride so no heavy eyeliner. Saw your in Texas anywhere near San Antonio?? I would be happy to do a free makeover on you.

  • used to work in makeup for prescriptives, if you have time before the wedding go to a?chanel/mac/or benefit and asdk for a makeover, its ree, all you really need to buy is an eyeliner or something cheap, they will help you with all kinds of tricks. lancome is good too but is very heavy on the skin
