@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.

others may have a different approach.Embarrassed
 
regardless, the la girls blend beautifully, imo.


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

coco i had a bad toasted almond i think...lol.  the one i have now is nice.  and while i love the milani coralina it took a lil more to get it to pop like i wanted it too lol.  neither are as pigmented as the la colors girls blush in my humble opinion...
 
try coral heat or the satin flush if you can get your hands on them.  like i told cc...i think these would look very pretty on darker skin tones...

If not for the trusty stippling blush I would not touch these highly pigmented colors.  It gives me total control.   If you use a very dense brush its over before the first stroke so try this method. 



TC I'm going to try some of the LA Colors blush.  These are actually in my drugstore and easy to find.
