You’re rushing to leave the office to begin the night’s adventures when you realize your eye makeup is sadly smudged or majorly creased. Fortunately, there’s a fix.
Almost all your fave beauty brands have released their own cream eye shadows by now, and it’s about time you try out these wonders for yourself. Just a touch (in any shade from black to metallic purple), a little blush, and a swipe of neutral lip gloss and you’ll be ready to beat the heat looking totally gorgeous (and on-trend!) Also, these formulas can last up to 24 hours! What’s better than that?!
Ready for some heat wave-ready beauty? Check out our top picks:
Bobbi Brown recently launched the stunning Desert Twilight collection, which includes a long-wear cream shadow. Try it out in Blue Moon for a totally chic look that will last through the day and night.
Color Tattoo cream gel is Maybelline‘s longest-lasting shadow. Apply some Painted Purple to your lids to add a pop of color to your favorite floral dress or lacy blouse.
Every lady needs some shimmery shadow in her cosmetic bag. This duo cream eye shadow compact from NARS is appropriately called Summer Time, and is guaranteed to make your eyes dazzle all day long.
Can’t make it to the beach? Use a swipe of Smashbox’s silky emerald green shadow in Neptune for some unstoppable seaside-inspired beauty.
And if you really want to splurge, Chanel‘s spongey Illusion D’Ombre gel shadows are the ultimate indulgence. I love this subdued purple shade, Illusoire, which will work from the heat of summer straight through the fall months.
