    Your hair and your eyes are warm, but your skin is neutral/cool. I’d try a cool and a neutral shade – you might have to mix the two to get just the right colour.

    I think the best way to judge is to go to Sephora (or similar) and swab a bunch of colors on your jawbone along your neck. I was clueless until I did this, and the sales lady helped me find a perfect match. I have no idea if it’s considered warm or cool though. 

    For eyeshadow, I think you’d look great with browns/golds. I also have green eyes and that’s what I usually wear, and will be doing for the wedding also. 

    And I’d also like to add that you’re a very pretty girl! You’ll make a lovely bride.

    You definitely look like you have pink undertones, not yellow. So i would say cool toned. You may work well with neutral as well but not warm.

    You’re definitely cool-toned!  The eye colour indicator is kind of misleading because a lot of green-eyed people are actually cool-toned. 🙂

    But because of your hair colour, you can actually pull off shades from all over the spectrum.  Are you looking for a dramatic look or natural?  For a “classic” bridal look, I think you’d look great in warm-toned (i.e. more red undertones, less grey) brown or cool-toned (i.e. more grey) taupe on the eyes.  For your cheeks and lips you could rock neutral to slightly cool (i.e. with a tiny hint of blue undertones) pink, but in my opinion, you’d look amazing in peachy-coral tones as well.

    See if you can find a consultant at Sephora or MAC or something with similar colouring as you and makeup that you like and ask for their advice! 🙂
