Magellan’s Light (from On the Horizon) is so difficult to capture! It has a rosy copper base with lighter, warmer peachy-gold sheen and flecks of greenish-gold micro-sparkle — which I hope you can see toward the inner tear duct/browbone. I’ve applied Magellan’s Light from lid to crease and then tried to really diffuse and sheer it out toward the brow bone but packed it on toward the inner tearduct. On my lower lash line, I applied Calming Presence for contrast.
Hopefully, you can see that I love a good eyeshadow that can look lighter/darker or warmer/cooler depending on the application and the lighting! This is Sydney Grace Earthbound from the On the Horizon palette applied all over the lid–from inner tearduct to outer lid. I applied Flying High on the lower lash line for contrast.

They used to be one of my favorite brands, but since they reformulated to be vegan… without bringing back most of their products, there’s just not as much that tempts me from them. I miss their Amuse Bouche Lipsticks and Prismatic Lip Glosses!
I thought I'd share some color combinations using the Sydney Grace x Temptalia Radiant Reflection Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.76 oz.) paired with other palettes. Of the three, this palette is one I very much envisioned as a way to complement your existing stash by adding more colorful shades.
Lethal Cosmetics Scatter Magnetic Pressed Highlighter ($18.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light lavender with cool undertones and a luminous finish. It applied evenly and blended out with ease on my skin as the powder was smooth without being powdery, yet it wasn't overly-dense or...

I applied Phoenix Awakens (from On the Horizon) from lower lid to beyond the crease, and I didn’t have it as diffused as some might prefer. I wanted a little more definition in the shape as something different to try.
There’s also Magellan’s Light (also from On the Horizon) on the inner tearduct and a little bit on the brow bone. I have Calming Presence on the lower lash line with a bit of Phoenix Awakens on the inner lower lash line.
Here’s Sydney Grace My Constellation (from Quintessence) applied all over the lid, then blended and diffused past the crease. I applied Orion Nebula on the lower lash line for contrast (shows off how raspberry it is!).
Next in the one & done series, as I know many readers wear only a few eyeshadows in a look, so I kept that in mind when coming out with colors for each color story but also wanted to make sure I shared looks in that vein, too.
This is Sydney Grace Heart-dog, from the On the Horizon palette, applied from lower lid all the way to the brow bone getting more diffused and sheerer toward the brown bone. I also had Flying High applied on the lower lash line for contrast.
