When I was a teenager I wouldn’t be caught dead without makeup. Once I headed off to University I just wore it when I was seeing my mother to save the lectures about not getting enough sleep or eating properly. Once I graduated and was working in an office I went back to wearing it every day, but then when I had kids I was either too tired or I had to hide my makeup under lock and key so that the kids didn’t “play clown.” Lately I am at a place where I want to wear it to look a little more polished when I am out networking or having fun at an event. But I am always in a hurry, so I need products that can do the job well and fast! But there’s another problem – my skin has turned on me. I can’t wear my regular products (even new, out of the package) without the breakouts competing for space with the wrinkles. So I find myself not wearing it. And my mother is back to asking if I have seen my doctor.
So I was super happy to hear that Target Canada has a new line of cosmetics called Pixi, from Petra Strand, that not only look good, and are easy to apply, but also are good for our skin! The H2O Skin Tint is a complexion-enhancing gel tint is paraben- and fragrance-free, and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
And the Concealing Concentrate will erase the dark circles, which should make my mom feel better.
Best of all, the products are affordable, and available at Target in Canada. The video below has a tutorial on how to create a natural look, that doesn’t take hours, using Pixi.
Disclosure: I have been compensated to promote this product, and while I have not yet tried the product, I only promote things that I would use myself. In the meantime I need to watch the tutorial a few more times because I have all the makeup skills of a 5 year old.
