Cream Eyeshadow I Can’t Quit
links + small things
I love wearing cream eyeshadow, not only because it’s easy to apply but also because it lasts all day. It creates a really beautiful base for layering powder shadows on top of it, but can also be worn alone.
Below is a list of my favorite colors and formulas of cream eyeshadow:
Laura Mercier Au Naturel – probably my most worn color because it really makes blue eyes pop!
Laura Mercier Caramel – a gorgeous warm shade of toffee.
Merit Vachetta – this is a rich warm brown, looks great with a nude lip.
Merit Studio – this is almost exactly the same as Laura Mercier Au Naturel!
Bobbi Brown Nude Beach – love this for a neutral brown with a hint of warmth.
Mac eyeshadow in Soft Brown (not a cream): this is such a beautiful warm brown to apply to the crease of the eye to add depth.
My favorite brush to use with cream eyeshadow is the EF1 by Makeup by Mario. I use the flat side for the cream shadow and the rounded side for any powder shadow I’m applying to the crease!
Merit also makes a great cream shadow brush that is perfect for applying a bit of color on your lower lash line as well.
