Makeup Looks: Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer

Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king's headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and her voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.

And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora's blood--and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.

As the faerie queen and her army of Vultures prepare to march, Isabelle must race to find a prince who can awaken her sister with the kiss of true love and seal their two kingdoms in an alliance against the queen.

Isabelle crosses land and sea; unearthly, thorny vines rise up the palace walls; and whispers of revolt travel in the ashes on the wind. The kingdom falls to ruin under layers of snow. Meanwhile, Aurora wakes up in a strange and enchanted world, where a mysterious hunter may be the secret to her escape . . . or the reason for her to stay.

Spindle Fire is the first book in a lush fantasy duology set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae and featuring two truly unforgettable heroines.

  1. I always love looking at the makeup posts. So much fun to pretend it's on my face. I think this matches the cover well!

  2. Ooh so pretty!!! Very nice! I wish I could do something like this, but I've always been so flincy and finnicky with my eyes that I could never do something so elaborate! Gorgeous though!

  3. I've really been looking forward to reading Spindle Fire! It sounds amazing! These gorgeous makeup looks have me even more excited! I love that The Naked Palette can be used for it. It combines my two great loves(books and makeup)! My bookstagram and blog actually started out all about makeup. I never realized that people posted about books on Instagram at first. Anyway- I'm really excited to read Spindle Fire- I can't get enough of retellings and this one sounds like a mix between Frozen(or the book equivalent) and Sleeping Beauty and I love that there are two MCs! :)

  4. Spindle Fire sounds awesome! I love the makeup look, so pretty! Thank you
