    I am doing a more plum color, not a bright purple.  That’s what the lady said at my make up trial so I listened and I liked it!  I have dark brown hair and slightly olive skin.

    Mine was grey, almost black! I was so afraid it would be too dark but when I saw it in the photos I loved it. It was a dramatic look but not over the top–it was an evening wedding.

    I have brown eyes and am doing like a grayish-blue type of color from what I remember from the trial.  The smokey eye is so sexy!

    I have ight brown hair, brown eyes, and will be tan he day of wedding (naturally olive skin). I will use neutral tones for the ceremony, and for reception I plan to up the wow factor with black liner and grey shadows. Also, I have a petite face so I don’t want my eyes too dark, or I look too juvenille (sp?)

    Browns/neutrals to be a little softer and not look super harsh since I’m pretty pale. Brown shadows also look great with blue eyes.

    I have been having a horrible time picking colors for my eyes. I typically line them in a dark plum shadow. I tried doing a black gel iner and I think it just looks too harsh against my pale skin and eyes. All I can see is my makeup and I think it hides my eyes rather than highlights them. I just bought some gray gunmetal color to see if I like it. If not, then I am going with my standard plum color and hope it lasts since it isn’t gel.

    I did a light smokey eye with browns and then black accents for the lashes and eye liner.

    I did my make-up trial the day of my engagement shots. I absolutlely loved it! I wanted GLAM so, my eyes are dark black liner with a gray smokey eye. It was a lot of make-up in real life but, showed up perfectly in my engagement photos.

    Here is a pic I took with my cel phone:
