Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot | Painterly & Bare Study

Lets start with Bare Study it is such a gorgeous golden beige champagne colour. It reflects light beautifully and is definitely one of those products that is perfect if you are in a rush and don't want to go out with completely nothing on your eyes. I myself tend to have oily eyelids so I can sometimes struggle to keep creamy products in place for a long period of time, now with Bare Study I do have apply an eyelid primer before use (Elf eyelid primer/Too Faced Shadow Insurance work a treat) to make sure that it doesn't crease on me, that would be the only downside to this product in my eyes.

Moving on to Painterly, this cream eyeshadow in my eyes is quite a bit different to Bare Study. Painterly is a classic nude beige that has a matte finish. I don't usually wear Painterly alone like I would with Bare Study but if I am in a rush it works wonders to help conceal and cover the veins on my eyelids. I find Painterly amazing as an eyeshadow primer, it helps to keep colours true to what they are in the pan and it makes them more vibrant. It helps to stop my eyeshadows creasing and is one of the few products that can do that so thats an A+ in my book. Painterly is just my go-to when it comes to eyeshadow primers.
