I agree.  You can also use the LA Pro Conceal if you don't have a lighter foundation.  I think Toffee or Fawn will work good for you depending on your undertone.   I was using Toffee but it is too close to my color so it wasn't really doing anything like you said with Destiny's mix.  I switched to I think Honey Beige and it's really good.  Having multiple colors has really been a benefit.  Before this thread I could NEVER get that bright eye thing to work for me.  NEVER.  I didn't want to experiment with MAC @ $18 each and these gave me just what I wanted and I found several options that work great.  Several options to mix for a TOTAL of $18LOL

i know exactly what you mean kfoxx.. the mac prolong wear concealer i have didnt work for me with the bright eyed thing cus it wasnt light enough.. i like how i can experiment (if i stop being lazy..) with the LA girls.. 

thanks guys.. 

one more question.. 
when you mix colors.. do you put them into something and stir? put them on the back of your hand and swivel? or put layer them on your face..?

@TC Hell yes on the lid with the lightening.  Another problem area.  Ruby Kisses and Fergie are both good.  I go back and forth between those two. 

I brush/blend Milani Baked Bronzer in Soleil on my entire lid using the Sigma E50 when I'm not doing shadows and it looks beautiful yet very nuetral.

Once again I agree with this beautiful young ladyHeart.  I only use my little ceramic dish when I'm mixing a bunch of stuff for the first time to see how different things look.

TBH I think using the back of your hand is the best palette you can get.  Make-up has to adjust to your body chemistry anyway so the back of your hand is a good warm-up spot for mixingWink

Sang you have to try the Nanacoco glosses.  I have this struggle with lipstick as well.  It just never really like the way that it looks.  Just too much most of the time.  I'm very partial to glosses and I can't even tell you how much I love, love, love these.   The are perfect.  Just the right amount of everything w/o seeming overdone or underdone.   I bought a lot of them and I really can't even pick a favorite.  They are all wearable for everyday. 

Also that Nude Chic Balm from Jordana is heaven sent.  Another perfect choice for very pretty lips w/o wearing actual lipstick.

I think I can skip the new Milani matte blushes TBH.  While I was playing makeup last light I pulled out my BR Raspberry and when hubby came into my little play room he was drooling.  It looked really pretty and I forget how much he loves me with blush on.   I forget to add it most of the time but I'm stepping my game up again thanks once again to the best thread everLOL
