    This was recently used on me! The makeup artist, Enrique, used this as a base. He then used the Naked MAC Pigment all over the lid, and in the crease he used a deep Smashbox brown. He lined my eyes Tightline in Black Ebony Laura Mercier liner (upper lashline), and on my lower lashline, he used Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner in Java. On my lips, he put Smashbox Pout lipstick and used Nude Lilac glass over it from Laura Mercier! It was so pretty

    i would put it all over the lid and use a matte brown in the outter V for a nice and natural look

  3. On it’s own! Perfect for natural looks!

    I wear it underneath matte shades, especially light matte pinks. The shimmer from the paint pot comes through so it looks all pretty and shimmery!

    I have only had it a few weeks – but I have put it on my whole lid and up and over the crease. I use UD Woodstock liner and eyeshadow in the corner to bring out the pink in Let’s Skate. Then I use black liquid liner on the top lid and mascara. Looks really cool!

  6. Alone with winged black eye liner! I’m a simple kinda girl =)

    By itself. It looks like a gorgeous whitish pink shadow by itself.

    I wore this the other day as a base for MAC Sea Myth eyeshadow. It was really pretty and brought out the iridescence of the shadow. I used MAC Parfait Amour in the crease with MAC Au Contraire in the outer v. I think it would also be great under Seedy Pearl or Pink Opal pigment!

    I was actually pleasantly surprised by this Paint Pot. The glitter wasn’t too obnoxious and it really brightens up the eyes :)

    i actually went to a mac store and they used it on me to promote it. yes i has fallout but it made for a strangely nice sparkly effect on my cheeks. lol. they used it mostly as a base on me with ‘da bling’ on the lid and ‘smokey lady’ in the crease.

    … Probably overly-girly. With glitter.

    i was allergic to this like no other!!! i had to wash my eyes like 20 times literally. they burned like the dickens until every single tiny piece of glitter was gone. anyone have any idea what that ingredient is so i can avoid it in the future?

  12. I wear this one my lid with genuine treasure paint pot lightly in the crease. I add a tiny bit of black liquid liner and some mascara and I’m good to go!

    I recently bought this paint pot and I’m loving it! so far I’ve used it on it’s own just with two coats of mascara on the top and bottom lashes – it creates a pretty bright eyed look. I have also used it with a navy eye liner lightly smudged on the top of my lid and in the water line as well . But the best look with this so far that I have worn is when I put it all over the lid a little past the crease then i put on MUFE Aqua cream in #15 (taupe) just on the lid and also along the bottom lashes. then i tight-lined with a black eye liner pencil and also put it on my waterline. Finished with lots of mascara on the top and bottom lashes. I finished the look with Nars Cactus flower cream blush just on the apples on my cheeks and for lips i wore MAC lipstick in Faux. :-)

    I own this and I love to wear it all over the lid with a think black liner and bright/red lip:)

    I’d wear it under matte shadows as others have mentioned. I’d use it others as a “fairy dusted” effect on collar bones, brow bones, maybe even cheekbones – who knows. I’d probably go overboard and get a disco ball effect, but it’d be fun!

  16. I would press a shimmery gold like UD Baked or even Half Baked, to create a golden pink look.

  17. Ashley

    all over the lid with Hold that Pose! in the crease, Print in outer v, black liner and lots of mascara!!!

  18. amanda

    all by itself over the lid and up past the crease maybe with a tny bit of dazzlelight to highlight and lots of black mascara with my lashes super curled for a perfectly icy feminine look. =]

    there is a special kind of shimmer in this paint pot which i really like!
    sometimes i waer it as a highlight on cheeks oder eyes.
    you can also wear it with a simple liquid liner just to add a special touch to your eye make-up!!


  20. Marta

    On its own with matt cream eye-shadow for highlight and a brown liner.

    I would use as a base then applying UD Sin all over it and then UD Buck on the outer corner to give more depth to the look. This awesome color can also be worn on its own, it’s so pretty!

    Ive worn it tis way: (for a simple quick makeup look)

    1. Put lets skate all over the eye (lid, crease, brow bone, everywhere) as a base. And I place another sparkly paint pot on the lid and blend up toward the crease to create sort of a smoky look.(The sparkly black one from the same collection as Lets Skate, or the Treasure paint pot one – its a sparkly dark brown – form Posh Paradise) and I wore it with a pink lip (Love Forever long wear lip cream)
    Red would look nice with the sparkly black paint pot. And just line your lids and put on mascara.
    Sometimes i don’t have a lot of time to do makeup and have to go for a quick but cute look such as this.

    I also use it as a base to bring out the color in darker eyeshadows. And for lighter eyeshadows i use a darker base (the shimmery black paint pot) to bring out the lighter color

    • MORENA

      side note – Lets Skate serves as the highlighter in the brow bone since i placed that all over my eye in the beginning. And its gorgeous

      • MORENA

        I’ve also worn it all by itself and then line lids, add mascara, and pick a lip color. I always wear pink lips

    I love this by itself and with simple black liner, too sometimes. There isn’t much fallout on me with this actually. The Morning Frost one had more fallout on my face at ~5h of wearing it.

  24. Ashley

    I use it under pinks, neutrals, and soft looks. I love this pink paint pot!

  25. Maren

    Maybe with sin from urban decay over ? :)

  26. I find myself using this one quite a bit – it’s so pretty on it’s own – it’s like that perfect light shade with shimmery sparkles, great for pairing with a bold lip! I also like to use it when I’m feeling lazy and want to just put something on real quick (I find that I like cream shadows quite a bit for that convenience). It’s good too for using as a base and giving more “oomph” to any shadow you decide to layer over top! Something’s telling me that I may want to obtain a backup of this… It would be cool if they’d decide to make this part of the permanent collection as it’s so versatile and a real go-to color!

  27. Ellie

    I wear this all over my lid with All That Glitters on the outer half and UD’s Hustle in the crease with Blacktrack fluidline, it looks great!

  28. Marisa Payne

    Sorry, this one was a major miss for me.

    I wore it once as an all over color with a black winged liquid eyeliner. Fallout city!!!!!!! By the end of the day (6 hours maybe less) the glitter had migrated all over my face (without me touching my eyes). I even had it down on my chest. Never again.

    I wore this while away recently. UDPP first, Let’s Skate topped with Swish, carbon outer 1/3 of eye on an angle & blended. Embark in the crease & Vanilla to highlight & inner corner. Black liner, Fascinating to lower waterline. Nice overall smokey look. Pink was obvious, yet subtle. NO fallout whatsoever.

    On its own with dark black winged liner, and a fun lip! Perfect for holidays!
