Highlight color

I picked up the weathered blue triad of MSP's. Heather blue is the highlight color, but I think I like it as the base coat. What would you use to highlight? I'm painting up a Warmachine Cygnar battlegroup. Light brown is my primary, and the blue is my secondary color. In theory, I wanted it to look like the blue was worn/weathered....in a faded kind of way. My skill doesn't match my mind's eye, but I'm well pleased with the product thus far. I'm doing one model at a time and have never tried mixing paints either. So...bite the bullet and mix, or go through my smorgasboard of paints and highlight with a lighter blue? I even thought of using a gray? Dunno. Thank you in advance for your help.

If you're going for a faded/weathered look, desaturating the highlight ought to work well. Snow Shadow as a first highlight, maybe, and then either Ghost White or (less blue) Leather White at the top?
