I don’t know about you but the thought of wearing heavy makeup during these warm summer months is the last thing on my mind. I’d rather let my skin breathe and go for a barely there, dewy finish. Basically, the “no makeup look” – that still needs some level of makeup.
These new sheer makeup products from Pixi by Petra are perfect for giving you a natural holiday glow.
GelTint & SilkGloss Lip Duos
Having said I wear less makeup during the summer, I do still like to mix it up with a bold lip. I may use a lighter base and almost no eye products (other than mascara) but I love adding a pop of bright colour on my lips and I’m loving these beautiful GelTint & SilkGloss Duos by Pixi. They have a long-lasting lip tint at one end and a hydrating silky lip gloss at the other. These lip duos give bold colour, hydration and shine in one impressive product.
There are three shades available…
BeachTint & FreshGloss – a beautiful dark tint and a sheer orange gloss
PinkTint & PrettyGloss – a gorgeous bright pink tint and a shimmery rose gloss
BerryTint & SweetGloss – a pretty berry tint with a nude gloss.
The tints have a silky, long-lasting formula and the glosses add shine and dimension to your lips.
Sheer Cheek Gels
I love a good blusher, especially ones that give me a natural, healthy glow. I hadn’t come across a gel blusher before so I was intrigued by these little beauties and wondered how they’d compare to the usual cream or powder blush.
The first thing that impressed me about these gels were how quick and easy they were to apply. A quick swipe and a gentle rub on the apples of your cheeks gives you a beautiful, natural finish. It’s as easy as that!
Again there are three shades available…
Flushed – this shade looks much darker and dramatic than it is in reality. It’s actually a beautiful, ‘flushed’ colour on the skin (as the name suggests).
Rosy – this is a gorgeous sheer fuchsia gel that gives a very pretty pink finish.
Natural – this is the lightest of the three gels but builds to create a fresh faced natural finish.
These gel blushes are incredibly light textured, which means they blend seamlessly into bare skin or over a foundation base.
