So this collection is really pretty! Some of the shifts were harder to capture on camera than others. My favorites were Carina, Cepheus, Monoceros, Musca and Oculus. They are just gorgeous and the label art is beautiful. These are absolutely lovely and you should go try them. xd I am now going to try to sleep. Which I’m probably going to fail at again. Boo.

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.

3

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.

5

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. 

6

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!

7

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 :)
