The Eye (Tints) Have It: Get Ready For Summer With Shimmery Crèmes

Summer’s here, and for those of us with dry-in-the-winter, oily-in-the-summer combination skin, making eyeshadow stay put can be a real issue.

There is a way to fight this, though: crème eyeshadow. As with crème blush, the color sinks into the eyelid and stays put more firmly throughout the day. Most shades are buildable – the first coat will go on relatively sheer, but additional coats will make it opaque. The one caveat is that crèmes crease more easily than powders – make sure to apply an eyeshadow base first.

Some fabulous shades to try for summer: 

For the neutral naturalist: E.L.F.’s Duo Eye Shadow Creams ($1) have a lighter color for your lid and a darker shade for accentuating the color. Butter Pecan – a pink and chocolate duo will flatter any skin tone.

For the drama queen: Becca’s Eye Tint is long lasting and surprisingly opaque. Like the brand’s famous Beach Tint, it gives your lids a rush of color that sinks into the skin. Try Gilt (a droolworthy ruddy brown) for a nighttime dramatic eye ($24).

For the lover of color: MAC Paint Pots come in a huge range of colors. Try Delft (a deep teal with gold pearl,$16.50). Clinique’s Quick Eyes Cream Shadow in Sunlit Palm gives lids a dash of sexy olive ($15).
