Cream eye shadows are super versatile and a great way to create new makeup effects. Here are some of the situations when I choose a cream texture instead of powder.
Choose a matte creamy colour similar to your skin tone and layer eyeshadow on top to make it long lasting and beautifully blended. My favorites are Bobbi Brown Shore and Bone.
Choose a strong coloured cream eyeshadow like bronze, red or black and blend into the eyelid and socket usingSigma E40. Then press rich shimmery pigments on top for a dramatic effect. Shu Uemura Matte Black Cream Eyeshadow.
Creamy textures blend effortlessly into more mature skin. Go for a shade slightly deeper than your skin tone and choose a very soft shimmer to give your eyelids life without exaggerating fine lines and wrinkles. MAC Groundwork is my go to eyeshadow for mature skin and just the right amount of shimmer.
