TikTok is a haven for beauty hacks, and cream eye shadow is the trend that will elevate your makeup routine to glowing new heights. 

WATCH: TikTok Makeup Hack – dried lip products.

Cream eyeshadow is one of those beauty items that we um and ahh about buying because our powder eyeshadow pallets are already taking up so much space.

But truthfully, we have been making a big mistake because this makeup item has more transforming possibilities than we thought.

Not only does it have the option to build up the colour so you can choose how dramatic of a look you’re feeling, but it can also be used as a colour punching primer for underneath your powdered eyeshadows.

TikTok has also taught us that its creamy texture makes it perfect for dry and sensitive skin and that you can use it to create bold looks for your eyes.

Plus, because cream is longer-lasting than powder, you can go about your day and dance all night without the product budging, while the dewy finish will keep you looking awake and fresh.

The product is also straightforward to use, and it’s up to you if you would prefer to opt for a brush or your fingers.

However, we recommend using your fingers because your body warmth will make the application smoother.

Here are some TikTok videos that are making a great case for the cream (or crème as the French say) eyeshadow.
