Cream Eye Shadow vs. Powder

Eye shadow is one of those things that people can be very picky about. Some people swear by powders, while others say that nothing can beat a good cream. Both can be good for different occasions, and if you haven’t used one or the other, I suggest you try.

Powders are the better known type, and are what most people think of when they hear the word eye shadow. You need a brush to apply them, and the blending can be a bit tough if you’re not used to doing it. On the other hand, creams can be applied with your fingers and blend smoothly, but are thicker and don’t always feel as nice.

If you decide to use a powder, it will look light and feminine. The downside is that it may end up looking splotchy, depending on the brand. To keep it simply looking pretty and feminine, try applying a primer beforehand. You don’t need to go expensive for this, either!

On the other hand, if you want a cream, it will look very smooth and, well, creamy! With this type, the downside is that it can go on too heavy or dark. Remember to only apply a tiny bit at a time, and to blend! You will be an expert in no time.

Both types of eye shadow have their advantages and disadvantages, and it all comes down to which one feels the best to you. You can find ways to be beautiful with each one, no matter your preferences.!
