DIY Cream Eyeshadow!

Hey everyone! This is going to be a post teaching you how to make your own cream eyeshadow. I love to use cream eyeshadow to intensify my look. Except sometimes cream eyeshadow can get a little pricey.  I am going to show you how to make your own with things you probably already have in your collection!

What you need:

- eyeshadow primer or concealer (I recommend primer so it will last longer but if you don't have concealer will work fine)

- eyeshadow (works better loose) 

This is "Wild" from ELF


1. Put a little dab of concealer on either your hand or a piece of paper

2. Use an eyeshadow brush and get a lot of the shadow on the brush and then mix it with the concealer or primer.

3. Once it is fully mixed apply it to your eye and voila! You just made your very own cream eyeshadow (it also works really well to intensify colors like the picture below!)

Top: Plain shadow; Middle: Shadow with cream shadow; Bottom: Just the cream shadow

How to Apply:

1. Apply primer (If you want super long lasting eyeshadow)
2. Apply the cream eyeshadow
3. Apply the color eyeshadow or any shadow you want!
4. You're done!

Hope this helps and let me know if you like these DIY posts!

  16. What a great idea! I'm always looking for cream shadows in specific shades and it's impossible to buy one in every color under the rainbow. I love the idea of mixing my own.

  17. such a really good & simple idea, would be good to use with primers or concealers that I don't use anymore (only coz i would hate to waste my TFSI) lol. Ima need to buy some more loose eyeshadows now!
