A big debate amongst beauty professionals is which works better – powder eye shadow vs. cream.

Personally, I like both depending on my mood and the occasion. For going out in the evening the cream gives a subtle but elegant look, while for day time the press eye shadows created by Motives offers dozens of different shades. If you really want a dramatic look you can wear both the press powder and cream eye shadow.

Below Loren Ridinger, creator of Motives and Motives for LaLa, povides a quick tutorial below for a step-by-step guide on how to apply powder eye shadow vs. cream so you can decide which works best for you!

Powder Eye Shadow: To reduce the fallout associated with powder eye shadow, apply with a patting motion using the Motives Eye Blender Brush before blending. Use one color on the lid for a neutral look or add a deeper shade in the crease for more definition. Motives’ powder shadows are crease-proof and deflect light away from fine lines to help visibly reduce the signs of aging for a bright, polished look.

Cream Eye Shadow: Motives Crème Shadow is best applied using our Motives Concealer Brush or Motives Detailing Brush. It can even be used as an eye base to moisturize and prepare the eyelid for the application of pressed eye shadow. There is no right or wrong way to use cream eye shadows! During application the shadow appear creamy, yet when it’s set it gives a soft, shimmery look that doesn’t fade.
