Last night, I found my plastic bin full of Magnolia Makeup eye shadows and I began to swatch and then fell in love all over again. It’s been a while since I’ve rocked those eye shadows. I forgot about the goodness of those amazing colors! I felt led (doesn’t that sound spiritual?!) to do eye shadow looks. I used the shade Au (a beautiful mustard golden-y yellow haha) and another burgundy shade with gold flecks. Unfortunately, the name of the shadow isn’t on the label. Here’s what it looks like:


Do you see my love for the color?
