Thanks to face mask enforcement, eyes are having a beauty moment this year. It’s been fun practicing our eyeliner drawing skills and indulging in the various eye makeup trends, including feline eyes and ombre eyeshadows. But getting creative with your eye makeup can be more work than it’s worth when your eyelids are constantly dry. Enter cream eyeshadows. We love using cream shadows because they are great for all skin types, highly pigmented, lightweight, and easy to use with your fingers or with a brush. Ahead, check out three of our favorite cream eyeshadow products you can add to your makeup routine for a wet and glowy look or one filled with shimmer, even if you have dry lids.
Glitter looks gorgeous on the eyelids, but it can get pretty messy with the fallout. This shimmer shadow is a great alternative that still offers that sparkle without all the mess to clean up later. The flake-proof, transfer-free, and crease-resistant formula means you won’t need to worry about touching it up throughout the day. Its non-greasy finish also includes castor oil, which is excellent at keeping your eyelids smooth and luminous looking. It’s also super pigmented, so one swipe across your lids is all you’ll need to achieve a bold look.
If you prefer a pressed powder-based shadow but still want to add some glitz and glam to your eyes grab this metallic showstopper. It creates a foiled finish that can last all day but has a creamy texture that keeps dry lids feeling soft and makes it easily blendable. You can mix and match between the five available shades. For a more dramatic foiled look, apply this shadow with a wet brush.
If you like to switch your eyeshadow daily, you can easily fall in love with this option. With 20 colors available to choose from, including matte and shimmery finishes, it’s a great shadow to use in the winter thanks to its gel to powder formula. The color glides on with a velvety texture then dries down to a lightweight powder that will leave your eyelids feeling soft and looking enchanting.
