Some Pixi products reflect a bit of beauty advice I’ve received from my mum throughout the years. I often design products with the working mum in mind, and today I love that our fuss-free philosophy is being passed down to the next generation.
We develop makeup and skincare for women of all ages, so it’s no surprise to hear that mums and daughters alike often use the same Pixi products! Here are some complexion perfection favourites!
Primers create a silky canvas to ensure a flawless, long-lasting makeup application. Some of our customers love our primers so much, they use their favourite solo as a quick pick-me-up to minimise pores or to achieve a luminous glow!
Flawless Beauty Primer
Flawless Beauty Primer is my HOLY GRAIL product. It keeps my skin hydrated all day and delivers a natural luminosity – plus it makes my makeup stay put. The formula has a peachy-nude tint that illuminates your complexion for that lit-from-within look! Mums love this because it’s loaded with powerful anti-aging and skin-fortifying ingredients. Daughters will love this as a radiance-boosting tint to wear alone or to enhance a glowy look.
Flawless & Poreless Primer
I call Flawless & Poreless Primer the miracle-in-a-tube primer (can you tell I really love our primers?)! It smoothes out fine lines and hydrates while making pores disappear. Busy mums love this product all by itself as a simple complexion flaw-fixer, or as a base if they have more time to apply extra coverage with their favourite concealer or foundation. As the ultimate multi-tasker, it can also be applied over makeup to even skin tone and refresh your complexion!
It goes on translucent and is great for all complexions and skin types. It also controls shine and hydrates skin and is a great introduction to skin-loving makeup.
The next step to complexion perfection is concealer. Forget the rules, whether you prefer to apply concealer before or after foundation is completely your choice. Here are a few of my favourite tips & tricks that you’re more than welcome to share with your mum or daughter 😉
Late nights are sometimes unavoidable no matter what your age. Correction Concentrate is my secret to looking like I’ve had a restful night’s sleep! Correction Concentrate is a colour corrector that blends seamlessly into the skin, while instantly camouflaging stubborn dark circles. Use Brightening Peach if you have a light to medium skin tone, or our new shade Awakening Apricot, if you have a medium to olive skin tone. This full coverage, waterproof concealing corrector cream works wonders for dark under eye circles and for colour-correcting blemishes.
Undercover Crayon is a makeup bag must-have. It’s fuss-free and easy to use – simply dot the crayon where concealing is needed and lightly tap with fingertips to blend colour. The stay-put formula dries matte and is waterproof – great all around the eyes and for quick touch ups during the day.
Complete the look with fuss-free lightweight coverage, perfectly suited for mum and daughter’s individual skin types!
Illuminating Tint & Conceal
My all time favourite product! Illuminating Tint & Conceal does triple duty – it’s your moisturiser, SPF and concealer all in one! It’s important for mums to encourage their daughters to use SPF early on –this super-hydrating tint has SPF 20.
To use the SPF-infused tinted moisturiser, simply remove the cap and apply as a normal day lotion. Then, you can add concealer if needed. For your convenience, it’s located in the twist off cap. Dot the concealer onto the skin and blend with fingertips – it’s a crème-to-powder formula that masks imperfections with skin-loving Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Vitamin C!
H2O Skintint is a go-to if you love a no makeup look. It’s an innovative, water-based, tinted face gel that gives a flawless finish and feels more breathable than your typical foundation. This lightweight formula layers easily if you want more coverage. It’s great for sensitive skin, as this is a hydrating and long-lasting formula.
Flawless Beauty Fluid
Mums often come into our Pixi boutiques looking for a lightweight foundation for their teenage daughters with oily or combination skin. I always suggest Flawless Beauty Fluid, as it is oil-free and leaves a natural finish without feeling cakey. It softens and hydrates the areas that are dry, while simultaneously providing potent oil-absorbers to balance skin and minimise pores. Mums love this Pixi essential for themselves too, because it blurs fine lines and evens out your skin tone! To apply, first apply your favourite primer if desired, then use a makeup sponge to apply Flawless Beauty Fluid to skin. Dampen for sheer coverage or use dry for medium coverage. Use your fingertips to tap another layer onto skin for more coverage in select areas!
A bit of Pixi flaw-fixing in the morning certainly helps enhance your natural beauty, but I’m excited to teach my daughters that beauty comes from within. Let us know in the comments below your favourite mum-and-daughter advice!
