I am always so thrilled to learn that a woman is inspired by one of my bride's look. I contacted Carissa, the bride of the "get-the-look" mentioned below, and she was tickled pink since she was about to give birth and not feeling like a beauty inspiration! PS she had a beautiful baby girl.
Hello! So I just stumbled upon this entry recently (http://www.weddingbeepro.com/2009/03 /19/get-the-lookask/) on

Once Upon A Shine in sheer raspberry is what I have right now.
I think that this classic look will look great on you. This look is all about accentuating your natural coloring and contouring. For the eye shadow you want to use a color that is very close to your natural lid color, but just a smidgen lighter. For your olive skin, I would suggest priming the eye with a creme shadow (M.A.C paints or Laura Mercier Eye Basics) in a light champagne color then topping that with a powder shadow of the same tone. Use a rosy/plum shadow lightly in the crease which will just accentuate your natural crease and add dimension in photos. Apply a tight Black Plum gel liner (Bobbi Brown) on the top lash line as this will really pop your green eyes. You have great brows and I recommend having them filled in lightly which will add sophistication. I used Bobbi Brown's Aubergine gloss on Clarissa, which I believe would look good on you, but for a deeper color I would suggest one of the following:
