Am trying to figure my eyes and lips for my wedding this weekend! My dress is this in shade Misty Rose. I have blue/green/grey eyes, dark hair, cool pale skin and some freckles.

Any thoughts, o wise ones? flowers

bump! I tried a pale pink eyeshadow but not sure about it - it's maybe a bit shimmery/dated. Grey works well with my eye colour but perhaps grey is too heavy for day?

I'd go neutral and not use strongly coloured eyeshadow - define with eyeliner and use shades of neutrals.

I have similar colouring and would go for grey smokey eyes. If you think that's a bit heavy one of the lovely Clinique neutral eye duos in a cool rather than warm brown would work well. I personally steer clear of totally pastel make up as it may look a bit shimmery.
