What lipstick can I wear? It's an odd shade so I can't really do red I don't think...

Rosy pink - similar shade to my lips? Or a light nude and dark eyes?

If the dress is a real statement colour, keep your makeup fairly neutral. I hate when people think "oh i'll match my red lippy/blue eyeliner to my gorgeous bright red/blue dress" and don't realise that it's overkill, or worse still get completely clashing shades of the same colour.

Nude lippy is hard to carry off, and as a general rule you aren't meant to make your lips lighter or the same colour as your skin so its hard to always find the right shade. I generally think one lighter than my natural colour lip with a sheer finish so it doesn't look like you've died.

Maybe a light smokey eye, a little bit of bronzer, tiny bit of blush and a lipstick not to far from your own colour?

Minimal. Don't do completely nude lips, do natural nude like in the picture or maybe just clear lipgloss, line your eyes with a grey or brown if you aren't skilled enough to lightly feather a black right in between your eyelashes. A skin coloured shimmery/ satin eye shadow, black mascara, natural blush, try not to use too much foundation/ powder. You'll feel much fresher and look a lot better. If your make up is dark or obvious with a dark, deep or statement dress you'll look overdone and haggard.

I have a lovely shimmery nude lippy reviewed in my blog I think nude would be the best, with a understated eye make up (maybe black liner and mascara and a shimmer shadow) xx

I would do a brown smokey eye with a pinky nude lipstick such as MAC lipstick in Angel
