While I love being a minimalist when it comes to my makeup routine, there's one item I just can't quit because it's the ultimate glow-giver. No, it's not highlight or blush.

It applies really easily, blends beautifully, and adds so much warmth to a look without being too overpowering.

That being said, consider this your PSA to give cream eye shadow a go. IMO, It's totally underrated. Who What Wear editors and makeup artists can personally vouch for their incredible staying power and overall creamy goodness. For all our favorites, keep on reading.
