Makeup for navy dress and silver jewellery? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have a formal event next weekend and I don't know how to do my makeup.
    The dress in long, form fitting and navy. Just plain but elegant.
    The jewellery I have is silver with deep blue stones.

    My original idea was navy smokey eye and nude lips. However when I tried it, the navy makes me look like someone's punched me in my eye sockets no matter how light handed I am with the colour. Black has a similar effect.
    I tried grey/silvery eyes but it makes me look like a corpse.

    My colouring is medium-light, warm skin. Almost tan but with a brighter, yellower tone than tan. My hair is light golden brown at the top and medium golden blonde for the rest and my eyes are grey.

    My typical go-to look is gold or bronze eyeshadow but because of the silver jewellery I don't think that will work. What should I do?
Do you think parents should charge rent?
