Hello everyone! I’m Carissa and I run The Indie Makeup Blog. Luna was nice enough to allow me a spot as her guest poster today.

You know how people say that adding mascara ties a whole look together? Well for me it’s a nice bright eyeshadow placed in the inner corner. Even when I just wear liner, I still add an inner corner highlight. It makes you look more awake and I love the effect it gives. Although there are plenty of eye-brightening shades out there, I have a few in my regular rotation that are my tried and trues. I applied these without primer or a glitter fixative because I wanted you to be able to get a better idea of how it would look worn in the inner corner.

Fyrinnae Sled Puppies is a white gold shimmer with subtle blue sparkles. This is my #1 shadow that I reach for to highlight. Pigmented, smooth, and the white gold shimmer seems to complement nearly any look. I’ve also used this as a cheek highlight and it’s very pretty worn that way.

Hello Waffle Sweetie is a shimmery off-white with blue iridescence. The blue shimmer is more apparent in person. This eyeshadow was part of the limited edition Kitty Kingdom collection. For those who don’t know, The Kitty Kingdom collection was inspired by the pet’s of members from Hello Waffle‘s Facebook fan page. A portion of the proceeds were given to a local pet shelter in Christine’s area. I like this shade a lot because of the blue sheen. I use this all the time with other blue eyeshadows such as Femme Fatale Dreamstate and Hello Waffle The Great Catsby.

Fyrinnae Crimson Ghost is a soft white with a prominent pink shift. The shift can look red or pink depending on the lighting and this one is pretty pigmented. It is easily one of my favorite shades from Fyrinnae and I highly recommend picking it up. One of my go-to looks is Fyrinnae Repunzel Has Extensions on the lid, Fyrinnae It Beautifies! in the crease, and Crimson Ghost on the inner corner.

Femme Fatale Perspect-Illusion is a soft pink with a strong blue shift. The blue shift is so intense that it often appears blue instead of pink. Femme Fatale is known as one the best makers of duochromes in the market, and I absolutely agree. This shade is stunning. I like to pair it with Femme Fatale Prismo.

Hello Waffle Snow Bees is an off white with subtle creamsicle shimmer. I wish I had more sunlight the day I swatched these so you could see the shimmer more, but trust me it’s there in person. I tend to use this one with orange shadows such as Hello Waffle Fauxlivia.

Shiro Moon Prism Power a white gold with a green shift. This is part of Shiro’s High Scores collection and is pretty loved in the indie world. Plus, Sailor Moon. How can you go wrong? This and Femme Fatale Planeshift make the most beautiful combination!

Femme Fatale Bone Dust is a greyed out lilac matte base with pink shimmer. Hello long description! But seriously, this color is so cool. Femme Fatale has a few shadows in the matte base + shimmer formula and I really like them. I don’t have anything like this in my collection and it’s light enough to wear in the inner corner or on the lid.

Aromaleigh 100 Years of Winter is a sheer grey with heavy silver sparkle and a subtle pink shift. This color was actually made to be used as a multipurpose highlighter so I wear it both as an inner corner shade and as a cheek highlight. It was part of the first Aromaleigh Ephemera Subscription box.

That wraps up my most used highlight shades! Hope you guys enjoyed. Thanks again Luna for allowing me to be your guest poster today :)

Rapunzel Had Extensions is a peachy pink with a strong gold sheen. Kurisumasu! is a dusty rose shade with gold/silver sparks. They’re all lovely. :d

Moon Child is a soft glimmering ivory shade with just the right amount of shimmer and sparkle and a touch of coppery highlight.
Rapunzel Had Extensions is a pale pink with a stunning brilliant light gold highlight.
Kurisumasu! is a versatile satiny rosy beige shade with flashes of golden sparkle.

Meerkat is a vibrant pink-purple with gold shimmer and sparkle highlight.
Arcane Magic: Faerie Glamour is a violet base with an aqua shimmer that changes to a bright pink when closer to light.
Nevermore is a nearly-matte vibrant purple, fairly neutral, but leaning to pink. This shade has a slight satin finish.

Let the swatching begin! I have Pteranodon, Digital Faerie and Sleepy Hollow from Fyrinnae. ^.~ I love all three of these. They’re similar, but so not the same. Pteranodon is a gorgeous turquoise with silver sparks. Digital Faerie is this amazing turquoise/blue with a green sheen. Sleepy Hollow I think is my favorite of the three. It’s this deep almost smoky blue/green with gold sparks. Sleepy Hollow makes me think of Really deep greenish-blue ocean water.

Pteranodon is a deep, vibrant, shimmering turquoise, enhanced with a touch of silver sparkle.
Digital Faerie is a stunning deep sky blue with green shimmer.
Sleepy Hollow is a Lush ocean blue with a flash of sage green as the light hits, Sleepy Hollow has a touch of gold sparkle as well.

I have for you some gorgeous blackened shadows from Fyrinnae. I have Okapi, Pumpkinfire, Fyre & Ice and Shinigami. I love, love, love Shinigami and Fyre & Ice. They’re so pretty. Okay, Okapi is a lovely blackened, muted wine color with gold sparks. Pumpkinfire is blackened with lots of orange/copper sparks. Fyre & Ice looks like a super blackened purple with purple and pink sparks. Shinigami is a deep purple with blue and multi-colored sparks. All four shades are gorgeous. All but Okapi are available in their shop. :)

Okapi is a rich mahogany burgundy with accents of gold.
Pumpkinfire is a brilliant coppery-orange sparkle and shimmer in opaque, yet blendable black.
Fyre & Ice is a varying hues of pink and purple on a deep black background.
Shinigami is a deep, smoldering purple entwinted with a scattering of blue and crimson sparkle.

I have more Fyrinnae pretties for you. Woot. I have Jaguar, Madame & Eve’s, Dressed to Kill and Cuddlefish. Jaguar is no longer available but that’s alright because Madame & Eve’s is almost identical, except M&E has a pretty purple shift. Dressed to Kill is just an amazing green. It’s like darkened peridot. Cuddlefish has an adorable name and is a beautiful purple. It shows up more blue in my photos, but it’s more purple. d= I swear.

Photos were taken indoors under a daylight bulb and swatched over Too Faced Shadow Insurance and Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue.

Jaguar is a shimmery teal-black filled with green and turquoise sparkle.
Madame & Eve’s is a striking Arcane shade, away from light Madame & Eve’s appears to be a vivid sparkling teal, similar to our Boytoy. Move it closer to light or in sunlight, and it morphs to violet then gleaming magenta.
Dressed To Kill is a glimmering, glowing, gilded green with flashes of gold and green sparkle.
Cuddlefish is a vibrant violet, but not an overly cool shade, loaded with varying hues of purple and blue-violet sparkle.

Woot more Fyrinnae pretties. :) I have Chaotic Evil, Blogger Beauty, Wake Not The Dead and *You’re. I love all four of these. Especially Wake Not The Dead, which appears to be dc’d. d= It’s a gorgeous purple/pink with tons of multicolored glitter. It’s beautiful. Chaotic evil is a super shimmery pink with silver sparks. Blogger Beauty is beautiful. It’s like a super toned down version of Wake Not The Dead. *You’re is a lovely red with lots of multicolored sparks.

Chaotic Evil is a brilliant cool shimmering pink loaded with silvery sparkle.
Blogger Beauty is a bright, shimmering mauve-pink graced with a touch of blue sparkle.
Wake Not The Dead this shadow has a solid, slightly shimmery, orchid purple base. It’s filled with captivating sparkles in varying hues of gold, green, and blue, which all change to give the shadow a distinctly pink-purple cast.
*You’re is a bright shimmery warm red filled with multi-color sparkle, much like Immortality and Shenanigans.
