When choosing these eye shadow colors also consider the texture or consistency of shadow. Some of the different choices for eye shadows are the following:
- Powder - These are great for finishing touches but require a primer to stay in place for the entire day.
- Cream - The consistency of the cream eye shadow allows the user to create depth but can be sticky and messy when not set with powder.
