post #1 of 133
Thread Starter 
Sooooo i was playing around with my M.A.C paint pots and pigments and tried the most craziest combos....

Delft p/p paired with Pink Pearl Pigment made this awesome mood-ring like color


Pharaoh p/p with Pink Pearl brought out the blue overtone in it...it looked awesome.....

H.I.P. 's cream liner in purple as a base with MAC's Pink Bronze pigment made this dark yet vibrant color lol it was awesome... i would post pics but i cant find my usb cable for my cam



well just wondering if anyone elso has any awesome suggestions, ideas, discoveries with any combos.... post em!!

Re: Best Paint Pot and Pigment Combos

Great thread. I wore rubenesque paint pot today and found myself lost when trying to figure out a pigment to put on top of it.

I ended up just using a shadow.

Can't wait to read everyones ideas

Re: Best Paint Pot and Pigment Combos

blackground paintpot simply makes any pigments smoke! but my fav is using golden olive or softwash grey on top of it.

I like to use Artifact under Reflects Blackened Red. Really brings out the burgundy!

Re: Best Paint Pot and Pigment Combos

Melon & Rubenesque, Vanilla & Blackground, Vanilla & Indianwood. Especially Vanilla looks really nice over Blackground, colour is hard to describe, but that combination looks stunning to me!

Re: Best Paint Pot and Pigment Combos

Here are some combos I've tried lately.....
  • Blackground p/p under Pink Pearl on lid, Bell Bottom Blue in crease, Kitchmas to highlight
  • Constructivist p/p on lid to crease, Viz a Violet over that, Haux in the crease, Kitchmas to highligh
  • Rose Fresco p/p under Apricot Pink on lid, Bell Bottom Blue in crease, Pink Pearl above crease, Whistle (e/s) to highlight
  • Artifact over lid to just above crease, Silver Fog above crease and blended down over it, Your Ladyship to highlight
  • Perky on lid, Apricot Pink over that, Softwash Gray in crease
  • Artifact under Royal Flush - blended very well. Neutral color (like Brule or Ricepaper) to highlight, inner corner
I have a lot more faves, but these are off the top of my head.....

Also love Constructivist under the new Starflash Sunset B.!

nope! blacktrack is one of my favourite bases for a dark and dramatic eye. Blackground is nice because its irridescent, but its too sheer. besides, you can work the blackground down into your top lashline as well, so when you go in with whatever shadow or pigment you want for a dark eye, you don't necessarily even have to go back in with a liner, and if you do, its easy as pie because you already used blacktrack!
