Pixi Daytime Look

Yay it's finally Friday, my favourite day of the week!
I posted about the Pixi Ultimate Beauty Kit back in January and I hadn't got round to using it until tonight -oops! It's a great palette containing 32 eyeshadows, 8 blushers and 16 lip colours. They are all very wearable colours and it's great that you can pretty much create a whole look with this palette, you just need to add a few extras like foundation and mascara.


Makeup used in this look: Pixi Ultimate Beauty Kit, MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NC15, Benefit The Porefessional Primer, Too Faced Absolutely Flawless Concealer in Vanilla, MUA Clear Mascara (brows), Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara

Tonight I went for two purple shades on my eyes, a lavender shade and a mid toned purple in the crease and around the outer edge. The eyeshadows are great quality, they go on quite sheerly at first but can be built up and they don't have any fall out. Unfortunately you can't make out the subtle purple shades on my lids, I think my camera flash is too bright! They look more of a silver shade for some reason.

I really liked the blush I used on my cheeks. It's a neutral shimmery beige colour which gives a fab healthy glow to the skin.

I went for neutral lips as well, a milky beige colour with the tinest amount of shimmer. The gloss gave a nice sheen to the lips and wasn't sticky. I guess it would be hard to reapply this throughout the day as you are unlikely to carry the palette round but apart from that it's great.

I'm looking forward to creating some more looks with this palette and I may well pop them on my blog :)

Have you tried any Pixi makeup? What are your opinions? I really want to try the new pink nail polish they have brought out! Hopefully I will spot it in a store near me soon :)

Thanks for reading,
Suzy
