I think it loos good, but I would definitely go more natural tones. Like browns, bronzes.

Do you have any pics in better light?

The colors seem a little strong to me (like pinkish along your lashline and then greenish along the crease with a stronger orange under the brow) though I suspect that’s partly the lighting and partly my monitor. Overall, I don’t think it’s playing up your beautiful blue eyes as well as it could, and the colors definitely need to be blended better.

Edit — OK, so they’re the colors you’re going for… I’m going to be honest here, I think you could do better. They don’t blend into each other at all and they just seem overall too much, like I’d be looking at your makeup instead of your face, and you’re too pretty for that! Makeup should compliment your face, not compete with it.

I agree with TB2011.  I think the greenish shadow competes with your GORGEOUS eyes!  Have you tried more natural tones?

OP -Honestly, I think you need to blend more.  The green and pink lines are too distinctive.  I think you need to add another color in there to blend the pink to green.  Also, instead of during all naturals, would you consider during a more neutral green color?  Or are your wedding colors bright green and pink?

I am attaching a pic of an image (from cosmeticsaficiendo.com) that I found where someone did a green and gold/yellow eye.  I think if you replace the gold/yellow color with a light pink, it woudl be really pretty.

@coffeegal85: i agree with this. OP, the technique you’ve used makes your eyes look sullen, try playing with the colors in a different shape.

@coffeegal85: I second this. If you do it more as an “ombre” with the colors fading into each other and less of a “pink on the lid, green in the crease” I think you will be much happier with the results.

Blend, blend, blend that’s the key.  Very pretty colours but without blending perhaps looks like you’re off to a nightclub.

Would you rather have your eyes pop or match your wedding colors?  Your eye makeup should match your eyes, not your surroundings.  I get what you’re trying to do and I think it’s really cute but I just don’t think it’s working.  Please don’t get offended because your eyes are GORGEOUS!  Have you tried browns?  They are opposite of blue and will make your eyes pop.  You might be able to do some pink in there also but I would skip the green.  That way, you’re picking up your wedding colors without mimicking them exactly.

I don’t care for it, but maybe it’s the light.

Honestly, it’s over the top. Your eyes are gorgeous and I think more natural colours would look better. It’s not that important that your wedding colours are incorporated in your make up. Use the colours that look good on you. You seem to be quite particular about using those colours. Have you tried the same colours but NOT in a shimmer? Matte looks more natural instead of going out clubbing.
