I am a sucker for Indie make up.
A few years ago, I was on Etsy searching for new things to try, and I stumbled across Moon Glimmer Cosmetics. I placed an order, did my Indie Spotlight on the blog and the rest is history.
I recently came across that little bag of pigments and thought I would give them some love since it had been a minute since I’d worked with them. Besides, there’s a hurricane going on outside and what else could make me any happier than to play with make up.
Kendra, the shop’s kick ass owner sent me a sample of Forest Elf in a Christmas card last year. Yes, she’s pretty awesome.
For this eye look, I mixed a little of Forest ELf with some setting spray to get a liquid. Then I mapped out a sort of cut crease with it and filled in the inner half of my lid. I did the same with Firefly pretty much all over the lid. I used Artemis on a fluffy brush and went over the crease of my eye and slightly above.
I used a small wet angle brush to create a wing with Forest ELf. I did this the same way I did the initial application, I made it Forest Elf soup instead of using the pigment dry. After everything set and dried down, I went back in with dry Forest ELf and touched up my inner corners. I used a teeny bit of Siren to highlight my inner corner and brow bone. Whew. That’s a pretty one.
For my lower lash line, I mixed Forest ELf and Firefly and applied them wet. I added Wet N Wild Mega Last in Chronic Condition to my lash line and kinda felt like that got lost so I added some Maybelline Lasting Drama Eyeliner in the shade Sleek Onxy to about half of my inner rim. That was what I was looking for.
Kendra’s pigments are impressive. They are creamy and blend well and they stick well. AND she’s cruelty free and vegan. Her website has a spot on visual representation of all of the shades she offers and she will even custom make shades for you. Did I mention she’s pretty awesome? Her attention to detail in the packaging has always made me smile, come on’ you know you don’t feel this kind of love in commercial brands packaging.

Then THIS happened.
After I removed the green and yellow look, this happened. I love that blue! Melody is the name of it. When you see your face with setting powder it transforms into this rich beautiful blue.
