Continuing the Paint Pot series, in today’s post I’ll share with you the beautiful effects you can achieve with a colored base. Not only does a colored base intensify the vibrancy of your eyeshadows, it also can dramatically transform the way they perform.
Idyllic paint pot is a deep red, cranberry shade, highly pigmented and produces amazing results for pink eyeshadows, especially those that might have yielded bad results in the past. Idyllic is a limited edition paint pot, so it is rather hard to find these days, but you can also use something like Blackground in its place for a very similar effect. I have always had trouble with Swish, not only in getting it to appear on my lids, but also to last! Not even after two hours on my eyes, and that sucker would be crease-city, slipping and sliding all over the place! Not anymore! 🙂
Yesterday, I tested the below beautiful combo over Idyllic paint pot for the first time. I am proud to say, not only did Swish NOT crease on me AT ALL throughout the day, it showed up even better than it ever had before! Idyllic also has an amazing effect on Heritage Rouge pigment. Just when I thought it couldn’t get stronger, Idyllic proved me wrong!
