Creamy eyeshadow is so appealing with its smooth texture and velvety finish. BUT, the question is – How do we get it to stay and look stunning all day long?
STEP 1: Prime Time!
First off, be sure to foolproof your lids with a shadow primer – especially when using creams! This e.l.f Cosmetics Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer is perfect for prepping your lids for a crease-proof look. By using only a small amount, you can lock in your eyeshadow for a lovely all night wear!
STEP 2: Get the right tools for the job.
Next, be sure to use a small synthetic shadow brush to apply the product to your lids. This is helpful when creating a precise professional look. It will also avoid adding any extra oils from your fingertips that could affect the look and cause streaking. We love this e.l.f. Cosmetics Eye Shadow Brush because it’s so soft and the paddle shape is perfect for creamy textures.
STEP 3: Powder and Cream to lock those lids.
An additional step you can consider is to layer a powder shadow over your cream shadow for ultimate depth. The combination of textures and hues will sit onto each other creating a stunning effect. This Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow Palette comes in the most gorgeous variation of powder shades, and the formula is designed to last all day – locking in your creamy lids with extra security!
STEP 4: Use a Creamy eyeshadow to get the most out of your new look.
Finally, when using creamy eye shadow be sure to take advantage of the velvety texture. Cream eyeshadow is versatile and can easily double as eyeliner. Use your shadow brush to smudge the cream along your lash line for a dramatic, edgy effect. This Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment Eye Shadow is our favorite cream shadow of all time! It comes in six shimmery shades that are guaranteed to make the statement you’re looking for.
