EOTD: At A Wedding

My boyfriend best friend got married yesterday! It was actually supposed to be today, but with the hurricane imminent (it's about to pass over us within a couple hours actually) they bumped it up a day. Here is what I wore and my overall look.
You'll want to read on if you're interested in eye makeup. I used mostly the TrueBlood Tarte palette, with one MAC and one Urban Decay from the Ammo palette.
Closeup of eye makeup. Here is what I did:

This is only the shadow primer from the Tarte for Trueblood palette. I like to put it up quite high, which is why I have my eyebrow in the pic so you can see. It goes pretty close. If you don't put it up high enough and your shadow goes over the edge of the primer it looks weird and doesn't blend right.

I used brown eyeliner from Almay, then covered the whole lid with a toned down brown neutral - Tarte Dusk.

Then I used a darker brown to accentuate my eyeliner and apply in the crease - MAC Swiss Chocolate. The eyeshadow does have a touch of red to the brown, but not as much as the pic. I'm really not good at the crease thing by the way. Feel free to offer tips lol.

The dress I wore was teal, brown, and burnt orange. So I used Tarte Charmer to fill in the space between my eyeliner and crease about 3/4 of the way in from the outer corner. The brush in the picture helps you see where I applied it.
Here is Charmer finished on both eyes.

I love to play with color, so I pulled a color from my dress to line about 1/3 of my lower lash line. I used Urban Decay Shattered from the Ammo palette.

Here is the finished eye, with Blinc Water-Resistant Mascara.

Here is my finished face right before the wedding.
