For our wedding I was planning on wearing MAC Carbon eyeshadow but in my trials it didn’t want to stay on for more than a few hours. The day before we were getting on the plane I hunted down a MAC counter and asked about eye shadow base and the representative recommended I try their Paint Pot. It’s an eye color but she told me that people have found it is the best thing to keep on intense eyeshadow and that she uses it herself. It worked! I am so very pleased. The day of I put on my makeup at around 11:30 a.m. and my eyeshadow was still dark and dramatic at midnight without any touch ups. I used the Paint Pot in the color Painterly, a matte nude beige, which was just slightly darker than my skin tone. Paint Pot also comes in pearl and frost finishes in a range of beige and pink tones as well as some colors (shockingly bright teal anybody?). You can apply it with a brush, I’ve been using my finger and it goes on very thick. I can definitely recommend giving Paint Pot a try if you suffer from eyeshadow slippage. Paint Pot also gets remarkably high praise from reviewers at Makeupalley (registration required, worth it).
