Mac #Painterly

I have found the most perfect eye lid primer, if you are someone who has oily eye lids? Or needs extra long staying power with your eye make up this post may really help you. I have picked up some excellent make up tips through reading blogs and watching You Tube videos, and this is exactly where I initially found the idea for purchasing Mac's Painterly Paint Pot.

The difference this product makes to my eye make up is amazing, not only does it completely wipe out any discolouration I have on my eye lids it also provides an even base for my eye shadow.  Painterly is an excellent colour match for me, I am quite fair skinned so if you are as well this would be great for you too.

I take small amounts on my ring finger and pat onto the lid area, until I have an even base. The result is a matte cover, I leave it a few moments to dry well before I go in with my selected eye shadow. I tend to apply my eye brow products whilst painterly dries. Its the perfect routine for me, I find my eye shadow looks the same when I arrive home from work as it did when I left out in the morning. I have zero creasing and no loss of eye shadow pigmentation. This is a miracle product!!!

Do you have a long wearing eye make up routine? I would love to hear about it if you do. As you know I like to try new products.

  2. I normally use Urban Decay's eyeshadow primer and that is brilliant. I'll have to have a look at this too as I do love MAC!

  3. I really want this! I have the rubensque one and I love it but it's not as neutral a base obviously :)

  4. Heard so much about this.. I am an NC42 so I was eyeing up Rubensque or Soft Ochre but then when in the drugstore I found that NYX does an eyebase too.. not as pretty as MAC but I want to try that one as it's $4.50!!! :)

  5. I dug this out of my drawer the other day. I love it. X

  6. I love Painterly! I don't wear eyeshadow everyday but I always make sure I've got some Paintetly on to blank out discolouration.

  7. I wear Painterly quite a lot but my eyeshadow still creases! I think its the shadow more than the paint pot that means it creases annoying! x
