How do I prevent cream eye shadow from creasing?

Kai Lee, Tacoma, WA

Bobbi: Makeup artists love using cream shadows because they last a long time, but they also have a tendency to settle into fine lines if not used properly. Darker pigments are less forgiving, so start by picking a light neutral shade.

Choose a non-greasy, long-wear product—I prefer shadows that start out as a cream and turn to a powder—then apply with a light hand using your fingers. That should do the trick!
