MAC Paint Pot's

Hello everyone!
I hope you all have had a fantastic Monday! I have had a really great day so far. I met with some really wonderful people this morning and I am going to start working with them on a web series. Super fun and exciting :)



ANYWAYS. I wanted to talk with you guys about a product that I love, MAC Paint Pots. Basically this product is "cream eye shadow" but I use it more as an eye shadow base (like urban decay eye primer or too faced shadow insurance). If I am doing a natural look I will use "Soft Ochre" or "Painterly" and if I am doing more of a smokey eye I will start with "Constructivist".

MAC makes many of these. I think at the moment they have about 17 different shades. These range from light to dark and matte to metallic. They have some limited edition colors ( which I included in the 17) . I have four of them. All of the shades I have are "neutral" or every day kinda colors.

1. "Painterly" a soft neutral with a pink undertone







2. "Soft Ochre" a soft neutral with a yellow undertone




3. "Groundwork" a medium matte brown




4. "Constructivist" a shimmery dark brown






3 ways to use this product: 

1. As an eye shadow base. I use "Soft Ochre" on almost all of my clients and on myself every day! I think it does a great job of neutralizing the eye lid and it helps the eye shadow last all day! 

2. As an all over lid color. "Groundwork" is a beautiful color for this. Just blend this color all over your lid apply some liner and mascara and you are good to go! ( and your face makeup of course ;) ). MAC has a lot of beautiful "one and done" kind of paint pots that would be perfect for just a wash of color. 

3. Start with a paint pot and build it up with eye shadow for a smokey eye. I use "Constructivist" for this. I will lay down a wash of color with this dark brown and build it up with eye shadows. MAC also makes a color called "Blackground" which is a blackish gray version that would be beautiful for a dark smokey eye! I will be adding that one to my collection soon :) 


This product is a must have in my makeup kit. I really love the pigment, the amount of product you get, and how long is lasts on your eye. I have never experienced any creasing. If you do have really oily skin you could apply a primer (like urban decay eye primer) underneath to give it that extra staying power. 

Price: $20.00 and $12.00 with pro discount 
You can find these online or in MAC stores.

Have a great week everybody!! 

I hope this was helpful :)
