When I was in the Spore's wedding I wore very little make up and the only thing that I did not like about any of the pictures I was in was that my sunscreen sweat off and I am showing the beginning of a sunburn. So my chest is pink in a few of the pics.
If you are worried about how you will look, try to get a friend with a good non digital and a digital camera to snap some photos of you wearing your dress in natural light. It won't be exact but it should give some idea of what to do.
Our skin tones are not the same but here's what I did for that wedding:
-Neutrogena sunscreen spf 45 specifically for the face, no oils added. It's a little more expensive but this stuff is awesome and while my chest was burning my face was safe.
-Bronzer rather than blush because my skin tone was more tan at the time. Applied to the cheek bones, and a brush on the forehead, nose tip, chin and a little bit on the neck and the collarbones. I like the powders more than the goop.
-Brown eye liner on the top lid and along the bottom.
-Chapstick with sunscreen topped with gloss.
