I say no. You want your make-up to really bring out the features of your face, not the colors in your wedding. Thats what everything else is for. Your not an accessory to the wedding so again i say not at all.

No! Then again, I’m not going crazy matchy with anything, we have four colors but will be accenting with other complimentary colors as well. 

I’m going with a smoky grey eye and subtle lips, because that’s how I prefer my makeup.

I don’t think so, but I’m OCD so I’d say they do have to compliment them in some way, assuming you’re wearing heavy-ish eye make up.  Like, my colors are purples and silver.  My eyes are brown so purple works with them, I’ll probably try to do a semi-dark purple smoky eye.  But with your colors, I think a gold shadow would be beautiful!  And its a color that works on all skin colors.

No way!  I’d much rather have make up that looked good on me than one that was matchy-matchy with the wedding colors.  I would say that you should try to keep your make up in the same level of formality as the wedding (i.e. no heavy “evening” make up for a casual day time wedding).

I would say just do a complimentary color…go with a deep eggplant-hued brown and it will be a bit more natural, without clashing!

I would say an emphatic NO, lol. Just wear whatever makeup colors complement your face. I would say the makeup should match the formality of the event–for instance, if you’re doing an informal bbq reception, you might not want to go with a super smokey eye and lots of liner, but maybe a more fresh-faced, natural look. But wear whatever makes you comfortable.

That would be kinda scary if makeup matched some wedding colors.  I can’t imagine having orange, turqouise, etc. on my face!

No, it doesn’t need to match. If anything, it might be nice to have a hint of the colors in your make-up, ut we have similar tones, and I KNOW that orange in any shape is not going to be a good makeup color for you.

I would recommend thinking about a buttery yellow for the base of your eye shadow, with purples as the eyelines and crease shadow. I wear that combo, and it will look springy and hint at your colors.

I think it is more that it should match the style of the wedding and make you look your best. you don’t want your makeup to be the wrong level of formality/ or evening vs day but you should def wear the colors that you look best in.

i’d say as long as it doesn’t “CLASH” ! I’d say purple eyeshadow with a more blue-ish tone (instead of the pink purples) will complement the colors very well~ (purple/blue and yellow/orange are complementary colors~ and look great together!) 🙂

@Brasty-I’m with you. I have green eyes and wear purple. Luckily, my wedding colors are plum and lavendar so my makeup will just happen to match. However, if I had your colors I would still wear purple shadow! I think it’s more important to wear the right makeup colors then to try to match it with flowers, etc.
