Crème Shadows were designed to improve and distort the face.

  • Description:  Creme Shadows can be used to chisel a full face, hide a double chin or correct a crooked nose. These colors are highly pigmented, so that their minimal application will look realistic close-up. Heavier application can bring a dramatic effect. Use in conjunction with Creme Highlights.

  • Size:  .25 oz. (35-125 applications)
  • Manufacturer:  Ben Nye
  • SuggestionsIntensify age effects with CS-3 Character Shadow, Cs-11 and CS-21 are subtle, natural tones that are better for sculpting the face.

Crème Shadows should be about two shades darker than the base.

  1. Apply over the crème foundation with flat brushes.  For small areas, like wrinkles, 1/8 to 1/4 inch flat synthetic sable brushes are useful.
  2. Draw in your shadows, add corresponding highlights and softly blend the edges to ease the stark nature of the shadows and highlights.
  3. Build a little at a time as it is easier to add to the color than subtract it.
  4. Powder to set.
