FOTD using Magnolia Makeup pigments in Shero & Sublime and Infinity Palette

20 Nov 2013

This post has been a long time coming. I have posted bits and pieces of it on Instagram, on Facebook & on Twitter but have not been able to put together a full post with the different sides to this look.

Well, here it is.
My first look using the Magnolia pigments and Infinity palette I received from dear Funke aka Madam Gifty
I did a pictorial of the eye makeup process:

1. Eyeshadow base using the gel liners from this post
2. Applying shadow shields
3. Shero on the green base & Sublime on the pink base
4. All the colours blended together
5. The two-tone brown shade from the Revlon Colorstay quad to blend out the edges
6. Finished eye with the Asta gel liner in Onyz, Khuraira mascara and L'oreal white pencil in my waterline
Zaron Creme-to-powder in CZ30
Zaron Compact powder in ZZ65
Sleek compact powder
Sleek Luminous Powder
Motives blush in Lust

Zaron brow kit
Gel liners used as eyeshadow base
Magnolia pigments in Shero & Sublime
Revlon colorstay quad
Asta gel liner in Onyx
L'oreal white pencil liner

Magnolia Makeup Infinity palette

Gifty's Daughter professional brushes
Hegai & Esther brushes
Italian badger lip brush

Love this lip to pieces. I am looking forward to creating more like it
Has anyone else tried the Magnolia Infinity palettes? 
They look like a knock-off of the MUFE Flash palettes though. But are equally pigmented and super creamy (they don't do well in heat though as they move around when stored in really warm temperature)
What did you think?


  1. Hi Barbara,
    I gotta say this is one of my least favourite of your looks. The lip and eye makeup I like seperately but together it's a bit jarring. There's also a little fallout from the shadow under the eyes. I do love your work though and the fact that you are daring with your looks. Cheers
    I did get the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra foundation I mentioned before and it's the most gorgeous, natural looking foundation I've ever worn. Never going back to Mac Matchmaster.

    1. Yes Faith. Truthfully, this didn't come out as well in pictures as it did through the mirror *covers face*, fallout included.
      Good for you, where did you get it? Perhaps I should give it a try too.

    2. Lol yeah I know the feeling. I still struggle with my under eye concealer when I try to do a Kim K look. Sometimes I just end up looking like a raccoon. I got the Lancome via a friend who just went to the UK. He got it from Selfridges but Debenhams, Boots and House of Fraser sell it too. I also got a bottle of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk but haven't tried it yet.

  2. I LOVE the vibrancy of these colors! The lips especially are amazing.

  3. I am in love with your eyebrows!!
    What do you use to fill them in ?
