I also hate looking done up. Normally, I use only Cory Cosmetic mineral makeup, have been using it for years and love it (cause there's a mica free version). And a brown mascara.

Although I've started adding eyeliner when I go out and I'd love to get into blush!

I'm "blessed" with purple eye shadow around my eyes and I have hollow deep set eyes with deep socket lines, so I was thinking I could use this to my advantage and leave most of my natural shadows and only lighten and brighten my upper eyelids to bring my eyes forward.

This should be easy but I don't have many eye shadows and I also discovered that the ones I have won't stay put on the lids like they used to. I don't know anything about primers/good quality eye shadows since this problem is new to me...

I'm pale so a lot of light shadows will still be as dark or darker than my skin... At the same time my lids are a bit purple (almost magenta) because my skin is so thin.
White works well but it doesn't look natural.

Any suggestions for products? I don't want to pack on too many products to achieve this look so it would be great if one product could conceal and brighten and stay put!

What about a good highlighter instead of an eyeshadow? Benefit Highbeam si great but I would suggest you something compact or creamy rather than liquid.

That could be great because I want to highlight and bring my eyes out of the shadows : ) I like to keep my makeup matte but I think I can get away with some highlighter as long as it's not too metallic/silver/gold but closer to skin tone...

I have NYX Mosaic Highlighter, a pressed powder. I put it on today and it does a pretty god job bringing out the eyes, but it's a bit cold and frosty... Looks almost white. It's still better than my eye shadows!
