Thanks LuvMyLocs...I have been practicing and I have some beautiful bright shades. My thought was I'm either not applying heavy enough or I need a lighter primer shade...I had it done at the MAC Store and thought I followed what she did but it didn't look the same...only color I can get to pop is silver or black. Lol!! Thanks, I'm going to continue to practice. By the way, love the eye in you profile pic!
