Is it a day or evening wedding?

I'd go ultra natural for day. Nude lips, light blush, neutral eye shadow, and lots of mascara

Still natural if evening, just kick it up a notch – little more color on lips and darker eyes.

I also say go natural. Smokey eyes if it is an evening wedding. The dress is a very pretty color.

I would go with light pearly/shimmer color on eyes- a shimmer neutral white or a complementing shimmery light plum.
Then I would pair that with a plum color on lips, or something that closesly resembles the color of the dress.

Can you please tell us your eye colour? I see that your hair is blonde.
That dress has a really great colour.

I find that a dark purple liner and shadow looks aweseom on green eyes.

I would go for a smokey eye with dark purple. I also think it would go well with the color of your dress. The dress is glamorous so I think you could get away with wearing smokey eye during the day.

Plus I'm sure the party will go into the night.

I can't make any suggestions on lipstick becuase I never wear any myself.

I would sugest some grey eyeshadow with a lot of mascara or a taupe eyeshadow. Both look great with green eyes because it make them stand out.
You could do a smokey eye with those, like Celine Chic suggested.
Go for a peach blush and a natural coloured lipstick or a pinkinsh gloss.

Have a nice wedding and have fun

u can use that shadow from the pick just blend it a little more on the top half of the eyelid and use a darker shade of it or a dark grey eye pencil to get that smoky look. for cheeks use a light peachy blush and finally a natural shade of lipgloss and don't forget lots of mascara.

am sure u ll look gorgeous

yes that shade, just use ur finger to make it go from that color to almost nothing as u go up on ur eye lid and then use a thinner brush to put the darker shade as u would an eye liner but that also u have to blend so that it wouldn t look like a very obvious line both on top and under the eye

have fun
