    I just wore Hot Contrast last night like this:

    1. Smashbox Smashing Lightening as a base all over the lid & up to brow (similar to MAC Luna CCB).

    2. Hot Contrast marbled side in crease & bottom lid, solid side in crease & as liner.

    3. Circa Plum pigment on the middle of lid & swept all over the other shadow.

    4. MAC Dainty Mineralize Blush

    5. MAC 2N lipglass.

    • Hi Cloudburst,

      Very fun combo! Does the Smashbox base work really well with the MES?

        Well enough, it’s just a cream eyeshadow – it makes blending really easy but I can see it not being as long lasting as a Paint Pot. I usually don’t wear light purple colours but I’m loving Circa Plum layered over other colours!

    The marble side looks uber spiffy over Nice Vice paint pot. Then wet the black mono side and use it in the outter corner/crease. Add blacktrack and mascara…tada!

  3. I wore hot contrast last night. I used the marbled side all on my lid (applied wet), the black side in the outer v and crease, dazzlelight to highlight, L’Oreal HIP creame eyeliner in black, and black mascara. I wore Smashbox fusion soft lights in Guru on my cheeks and Viva Glam V l/s with Viva Glam VI l/g for a somewhat nude lip since the eyes were so strong. I got tons of compliments on it!
