Received this email the other day:
I loved your post about "Today's Bass" where you showed off your bass makeup with Pixi's comprehensive foundation! Fun to not only look before and after with a certain product, but the whole step by step to the finished result. It inspires! :) Wondering if you can make a similar post with Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal? I have decided to apply for one before the spring, but would like to see exactly how you use it if I am to buy more products. Has a similar complexion as you, a little redness and blemishes here and there, but otherwise quite even. ”
Glad it was appreciated! :) You who have not read my previous post with "today's base - big pores" will find it here!
Pixi Illuminatint Tint & Conceal is a perfect multi-product now for spring as it both gives a natural coverage, nice luster, spf 20 and has a concealer that conjures away blemishes and irregularities.
Just use it for an unmade-up look, but at the same time rudely fresh;) Or do a whole makeup with contouring, eyebrows, lips and the whole kit that I will show you today! This can be such a big difference then:
A complete bass make-up, while there is actually not much coverage. All over the face, it's just a colored day cream, then the only coverage on the blemishes that I applied concealer on. Otherwise, only products that neutralize red tones, and then contouring, blush, eyebrows and lips on it for a nice whole :)
Big difference huh? :)
Here's what I did:
1. Face primer - Pixi Redness Reducing Primer
Face primer that evens out the skin and gives a smooth surface to apply makeup on. It provides no coverage but has green pigments in it that neutralize red. So there is already a big difference!
I apply this with clean fingers and massage it thoroughly into the skin.
2. Colored day cream, sunscreen and luster - Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal
And here we get a smoother and finer color on the face with the colored day cream. It contains spf 20 and light-reflecting pigments that give the skin a nice glow. I usually also apply it with clean fingers, like a regular day cream.
I have used the shade Bare Glow which is the lightest.
3. Concealer - Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal
Screw on the cap again (which contains a concealer) and dab the concealer on any blemishes and irregularities that you want to cover. Then spread the paint with your fingertip or with a brush.
4. Powder that neutralizes redness - gloMinerals Redness Relief Powder
The miracle product for us with a lot of redness that wants to shine through, a skin care powder that gives no coverage but a faint yellow tone that neutralizes away red shades. It is mineral-based and contains caffeine and licorice extract that goes into the blood vessels and tightens them a little, so that you become less red both cosmetically and under makeup.
You who do not have much redness in the skin do not need to finish the base with powder.
5. Contouring, blush, eyebrows & lips
Then I used Pixi Natural Brow Duo (Deep brunette), Pixi Contour Creator and gloMinerals Blush (Papaya) to get more color and shape in the face, and then the whole base is ready:
