Day to Night Summer Looks with Pixi by Petra

I’m a big fan of small makeup kits. While I do have an arsenal of beauty products at home, whenever I go out of the house I only like to handpick a few items that will go with me for the day. That said, compacts and multitaskers score very high on my list because they save space yet carry so much.

This summer seems like it’s going to be another hot one, so even more reason to keep things light (both in your makeup bag, and on your face!).

I road-tested some Pixi by Petra products for two summer-ready looks: one that’s suitable for the day, and another for night.

Using my face as the canvas, I split up two sides of my face: one side for Day, and the other for Night.

4. Eye of Horus’ Ultimate Brow Define

Plus: it contains natural oils and waxes that keep it smudge proof. Brow pencis come in 3 shades. I sometimes mix Husk (Ash) and Dynasty (Medium Brown).”
