Of course! As long as the link to this blog is still there :) thanks for your interest!
I buy my Mehron paints from either Treasure House of Makeup or eBay :) and I’m not sure what you mean, as in normal makeup or other paint brands? The only other paints I have used are Kryolan Supracolors, which were great for doing makeup for high-intensity theatre shows (CATS) as they’re oily and can’t be sweated off as easily during dancing and under lights, but I struggled to blend them properly when it came to my own makeups. In terms of normal day-to-day makeup, I love Urban Decay and have a few of their eyeshadow palettes and eyeliners :) and as I’m super pale I blend Illamasqua’s pure white foundation with Maybelline to get the right shade! Other than that, pretty basic high-street brands really :)
As it’s water-based it’s not so resilient to sweat/smearing unfortunately. Normally with my makeups I don’t actually have them on for very long but if I wanted it to last longer I’d use a makeup fixing spray (or hairspray in a pinch), which makes it much less likely to smudge :)
