How to disable eye blinking for a closed eyes gesture?

In the Avatar Descriptor the Eye Look is using a blend shape for blinking.

I made a eyes closed animation and put it on GestureLeft = 3 sign on the FX layer.
Animation doesn’t work because the eye look overrides it.

How does one disable eye look during a gesture and re enable afterwards?

I know there’s ComboGestureExpressions (CGE) | Easily generate Avatars 3.0 animator layers for hand gestures to control face expressions but i just wanna know how it’s done manually. Don’t wanna use it.

There was another topic here where someone said they figured it out but never told us exactly how…

EDIT:

For anyone trying to do this select ur gesture:

Add Behaviour VRCAvatarTrackingControl
And set Eyes and Eyelids to Animation

Then select Idle:

same thing but set it to tracking:

And that’s it, you can use this to present visemes too during an animation that’s playing currently that uses ur mouth.
