Make-up colors?

Warning - this is kind of long. Sorry!

I'm still debating what color shadow to do on my eyelids for the wedding.

Yes, I had a trial. However, the gal seemed rushed (even though I was on time for my appointment). She did not seem to want to redo my eyes when I didn't like them the first time. They were WAY too much, with the shadow (gray) all the way up to my brows! So, she wiped some off. It was a little better, but I still wasn't sure if it was "me." Instead of taking it all off and starting over, she just quickly took it off one eye and tried again in brown. It was ok, but wasn't great because she didn't spend a lot of time on it. It would have been nice to see both eyes with the brown.

I'm debating either going with browns or with gray with a hint of purple (but only on the lids!). I put a faint purple shade over my other eyeshadow (usually a brownish shade) quite often.

I like these 2 photos that I found over on Weddingbee.

Here are some photos from my make-up trial. (Sorry for the blurriness...I'm not good at taking photos of myself!) As you look at the picture, the eye on the left is the gray shadow, and the right is the browns. Also, it seemed heavy on the blush to me. What do you think? I definitely am asking for none on my nose. I'm not sure why she put some on my nose, because my nose is already redder than the rest of my face and gets red easily.

My hair is darker than in the trial photos. It is more like the shade of the second photo in this post.

So, what do you think?

Gray, with a hint of purple? Or browns?

Too much blush?

I think I like the browns with some purple. I don't know what it is, but I'm not really liking the gray. But, in the end, it's all about what YOU like best! :)

I am by no means a make up expert, but I like the gray better. It brightens your eye. I don't think the blush looks to heavy. I think your makeup looks beautiful. I know sometimes makeup and feel heavy or clownish, but you look GREAT!!

I like the eye makeup on the second model. I like some color but natural look.

Interesting, I like the brown . . . and I think the blush looks nice, natural and flushy. :)
