painting ceilings

After recently painting a ceiling for the first time, having mostly lived in brand new houses,we have found that with any form of shiny finish e.g. gloss, vinyl silk, it is incredibly hard to achieve a good result. by comparison, a matt paint goes on much better.Obviously older properties may have a less than wonderful plaster, when, in the worst case senario, a skim is the only answer.Hope this is of some help!
