I'm Lazy When It Comes to Makeup, But I Can't Be Without This One Easy Product
I have never been particularly artistic. Creative? Sure. But artistic? Most certainly not. And when I was fobbing off my art homework from school onto anyone in my life who knew how to hold a pencil, I was very much of the mindset that not being artistic wouldn’t really hinder my prospects too much. But fast-forward 25 years, I’m now a beauty editor who is wildly clumsy and messy when it comes to her makeup application.
You see, it’s not that I am intentionally lazy with my makeup application. Rather, my lack of artistic skills only leaves me frustrated and angry on the odd occasion that I do attempt to really make an effort. My makeup MO, I have learned to accept, is minimal, natural-looking and, most importantly, easy to achieve.
In fact, I have spent my entire career dedicating my words to those who feel similarly to me. I spend hours testing products and writing about them so that “lazy” girls and boys far and wide know what products to shop. My makeup capabilities start and stop with finger painting. Providing I can swipe products onto my face with my hands and fingers, I have learned that the results can be impressive.
And since discovering the versatility and brilliance of cream blushers in recent years (just dab on and dash), I have come to be captivated by the easy wonder of cream eye shadows. While palettes and powders that need layering, blending and tidying up are, needless to say, not my thing, cream eye shadows can be scribbled or patted onto lids in a matter of seconds, and no one would ever know how easy it was.
I have become so captivated by the genius of cream eye shadows that barely a day goes by that I don’t wear at least one shade on my lids. Whether you want to add a subtle wash of colour to hide redness or want a smoky look for a night out, a cream eye shadow will deliver a seriously chic look in just one swipe. I’d go as far as to say that I love cream eye shadows so much that I wouldn’t mind if I never had to use a powder shadow ever again.
So if you’re lazy with your makeup like I am, these are the 11 best cream eye shadow products that are guaranteed to make your routine a whole lot easier.
