Natural make-up with PIXI

    - Advertisement -

    Now it's summer, and even though I'm such a creative person who just gets more inspired and colorful by the heat and the beautiful nature that is now, I know that most of you mostly relax and take it easy this time on. year.

    Make-up then comes second, and the only thing you want is to sometimes spruce up a little so that you look fitter and fresher - but still very natural.

    So today's make-up is almost a "no makeup makeup", but with a little more make-up and focus on the eyes than if you want to look completely unmade up. Perfect for looking alert and fresh, but still relaxed and "naturally good looking" :)

    Smoother skin tone without full coverage, more lively eyes, more framing eyebrows and a little color on the lips!

    A look that fits just as well with loose shorts and flip-flops, as with a nice summer dress :)

    I chose to do almost the whole look with Pixi products, which is mostly because they are so heavenly good when it's hot outside! Both the foundation, the brow pencil and the eyeliner pencils are water resistant (the eyeliner pencils are also waterproof), so they can withstand a lot of sweat and water splashes when you sunbathe and bathe (but you may not need to dip your head if you want to be on the safe side).

    I have some small pimples on my back that Miska helped me tone down with the Pixi H2O Skintint last Saturday because I was going out in the evening. But before that, there was a spontaneous dip in the pool first - which was about a quarter of an hour long with just a lot of mischief and running haha, and afterwards the coverage on my little fins on the back was just as good as before the bath!

    Pixi H2O Skintint is water resistant, and I do not say that for everyone it holds as well in the face as it did for me on the back, because you have a tendency to rub more in the face and so all day, but it lasts considerably better than any other basic makeup I have tested, just when it comes to water!

    The other reason I want to show this type of makeup with Pixi is because the products are so natural and beautiful, they are not a brand that is primarily aimed at creative and artistic makeup artists who want to express themselves with makeup, but it is developed for private individuals who want a natural brand, without strangeness, which highlights your already nice and natural features on the face :)

    The nice uplifting focus on the eyes I got by using both a black and a brown eyeliner, which I then faded out a little with a small makeup brush.

    1. Paint brown eyeliner along the upper lash line, and thin at the bottom of the lower lash line.
    2. Fade the edges for a soft fade.
    3. Lift the eyelid with your finger and fill in with a black eyeliner pencil just at the scalp of the lashes, so you get a more intense and effective look. In addition, your lashes look fuller and darker - so you do not need as much mascara, but a little is enough.

    Products I have used:

    Eyes
    Black eyeliner - Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen (Black Noir)
    Brown eyeliner - Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen (Black Cocoa)
    Black mascara - Paese Adore 3D Lash Mascara

    Face
    Face primer - Pixi Flawless & Poreless
    Foundation - Pixi H2O Skintint (Nude)
    Sunscreen - Paese Bronzing Powder (1M)
    Eyebrow Pencil - Pixi Natural Brow Duo (Deep Brunette)

    The lips are also Pixi, Tinted Brilliance Balm in the shade Soft Sienna, which will be coming to Byher.se soon! The pen becomes more colorful if you apply it by painting directly on the lip, but I dabbed a bit and then spread the color with the fingertip only, to get a more discreet tone on the lips.

    Hope this post was helpful!

    And since it (at least here in Gimo) will be gray weather for a few days now, I can also emphasize that this type of makeup is not only good for sweat and splashing pool water, but also rain;)

    Even in rainy weather, I recommend taking more of the lip gloss, or a more colorful shade, to liven up a little extra in the greyish light and liven up the atmosphere a bit :)

    1. Just have to start by saying that your hair color is really spot on! Shitty!
      But, now to my question: Do you only have 1 layer of Pixi skintint on you in the pictures? I bought it a while ago and do not get that even nice skin at all. It still looks a little spotty on the face. (Although it does no matter what foundation I use, water-based, oil-based or mineral foundation) I never manage to get that even look. How-to? Or what to use? Do not want to look cakey either :)

      • Taaack! Yes, just one layer and it will be even and nice immediately. Have you tested without day cream underneath, to see if it could be the culprit, or do you have a face primer underneath that may not match the cream? I apply it with my fingers, no matter how fast and easy!

        • Thanks for the reply! I have tried with 3 different primers below and noticed a slightly better result with one of them. But I simply have to experiment further :) Thanks for the tips!

    2. Hi Helena
      I also usually mark the upper waterline, but despite using a waterproof pen, it sticks to the lower waterline…. Doesn't that work for you?

      • No I usually do not have that problem, but it may be that you apply a little too far in? I try to stay only where the lashes are stuck in the skin, and thus not directly on what is moist. Because even if the pen is good and stuck, it wants to discolour a little when you blink, but you often avoid that if you do not apply that far in. Hug!

        • hahaha, yes… ..I have always marked the waterline but now I know… ..Rub into the lashes then… ..
          Thank you and have a nice weekend.
          Hug

          • It is not wrong to do as you have done, but in most eyes it smears just like you had problems with :) But on the lower waterline you can paint on the waterline itself, because then it will not be so clear if it would smudge the upper one, and besides, the lower waterline does not move as the upper one does, so it also comes into play. Maternity! :)
