Loose pigment + cream shadow When it comes to eyeshadow, you've got a couple (imperfect) options: Loose powders come in lots of vibrant colors, but they tend to fade throughout the day, whereas cream shadows have longevity -- but the neutral shades are so boring. "Blending a bright loose power with a cream shadow -- which usually contain smudge-proof ingredients like silicone -- will give your bold hue staying power," explains Paul. "It's also a great way to customize your own eyeliner or mascara shade," adds Galadjian. Mix a scrape of the cream and loose pigment together in a small bowl and use a flat brush for your lids or angled brush for eyeliner. Galadjian suggests using a white or silver cream when blending, which will boost the loose powder hue.
