The latest product that’s been selling like hot cakes in the beauty world right now is the cream eyeshadow, and we get why. Cream eyeshadows are perfect for creating simple and uncomplicated eye looks. Plus, they’re beginner-friendly too.
But one major problem that comes with cream eyeshadows is that they tend to crease after a few hours. We know it can be annoying AF, but do not lose hope just yet. Because we are about to give you some really handy tips on how to prevent your cream eyeshadow from creasing all through the day.
- Allow your skincare products to sink in
- Do not forget eye primer
- Watch the formulas you pick
- Apply with clean fingers
Allow your skincare products to sink in
Wait for a couple of minutes after applying your eye cream, before going in with your eye shadow. This will give the product enough time to completely sink into your skin and moisturise the surface. Thus ensuring that the cream eyeshadow sticks better to your skin and doesn’t patchy and begin to crease.
Do not forget eye primer
Not using an eye primer is one mistake that a lot of women tend to make when it comes to their eye makeup. This little step will go a long way in absorbing any excess oil that is making your eyeshadow crease and smudge during the course of the day. If you have really oily eyelids, simply priming your lids may not be enough. You will also have to dust a tiny bit of translucent powder to help absorb the excess oil, if any.
Watch the formulas you pick
When you are choosing a cream eyeshadow, be mindful and pick eyeshadows that promise a long-wear or crease-proof formula. Since these eyeshadows have been specifically formulated to prevent creasing and make your eyeshadow last for a longer period of time.
Apply with clean fingers
It’s best to use your fingers for applying cream eyeshadows. But it’s really important to clean and dry your hands thoroughly before applying your shadow as you don’t want to transfer oil onto your eyelids. Once you have applied the cream eyeshadow, set in place with a powder eyeshadow to prevent it from creasing throughout the day.
