    I'm not a big make-up expert but it really does depend on the rest of you.

    What's your dress like?

    I would say that if you do go something fancy with the eyes then keep the rest of your face simple otheriwse you risk looking like a bit of a Barbie! Draw attaention only to the parts of you that you want. And as for matching the dress to your eye make-up, there is no rule that says you cannot. -Obviously some people pull it off better than others. And if depends how subtle you decided to be. If you post a pic, it would be easier to judge.

    Hope that helps.

    My cam is messed up and wont actually allow me to transfer the pics on to the comp so I can't post a pic of the dress. Its kinda hard to explain but its halter neck and is russhed to the waist then has diff layers for the main of the skirt, quite short (a bit slutty lol)

    why not stick to natural/neutral colours - cremes and browns and greys - on you eyes. you can make them smokey and sexy and subtle.

    When I do subtle it looks like I have nothing on and I like it to be noticable.

    fair enough. i think browns and greys sort of smudged around your eyes looks more sophisticated than blues to match your dress...

    you could do it darker than usual to make them noticeable?

    what about an emerald colour for your eyes mixed with black eye liner and mascara? would that work?

    I have to say, after seeing your pic then the ones of CZJ, if u were to choose one of those styles, the second pic with the darker eyes would make your brown eyes stand out more. The pink in the first one can look too neutral if you want them to stand out. At the end of the day it's your choice, but I think the second one would suit you more.
    Have fun tonight! Mine's tonight as well - I'm really excited. Let me know which you go for, if any!

    I think i might go for that and at least it has step by step, but I know it will end up looking nothing like that lol.

    Yeah have fun tonight aswell, aww I can't wait.

    It probably won't look exactly like it, but I bet it will look pretty damn good!! If you end up doin it & not likin it, you could always adapt the bit you don't like and make it your own!!
    Hope I've helped a bit. It's so excitin! We'll both have a blast!
