This post is all about the essentials to cleanse, tone and complete your look with some Fall/Autumn perfect makeup must-haves. These pick-me-up pretties are also great for a fuss-free transition from summer to autumn and are perfect to effortlessly take you from day to night, transform you into a sunkissed goddess and make your complexion come alive.
- Double Cleanse | £24
This unique 2-in-1 cleanser housed in one jar is created by Pixi Beauty + skincare expert Caroline Hirons. The jar contains solid cleansing oil at one side and a luxe cleansing cream on the other. This duo offers superior nighttime cleansing regime with minimal effort. Solid cleansing oil is ideal for removing makeup and/or sunscreen. This cleanser is enriched with a skin-loving blend of Vitamin E, Camellia oil and Evening Primrose oil, that hydrates the complexion and leaves skin conditioned and protected.
Once daily dirt and grime has been eliminated from skin with the solid oil, the luxe cleansing cream provides a further and more nourishing cleanse for the skin. Utilising a Peptide Complex, the formula is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines, whilst encouraging a visibly plumped complexion. The rich cream prepares skin for the following steps of the skincare regime.
- Glow Tonic | £10 for 100ml
Its my first pick from the brand and I have only amazing things to say about this toner. I always buy full size bottle of Glow Tonic but this travel size is perfect to carry on a holiday and also great for those who want to try the product before committing to full size. This is the most gentle yet effective, alcohol-free exfoliating toner for smoother, brighter & clearer skin. The toner is formulated with 5% Glycolic acid which is derived from Sugarcane and is natural exfoliant. The toner has Aloe vera, ginseng and botanical extracts that work together to nourish and treat the skin. This is a perfect pick to fade blemishes gradually, remove dead skin, prep skin for following skincare and also enhance glow instantly. Makeup applies smoothly when I exfoliate my skin a night before with this toner.
Tip: If you’re new to Glow Tonic and are scared to use acid on your skin, you may dilute it by saturating cotton pad with water and then adding few drops of tonic onto the cotton pad and swipe on your face. You should continue doing this for 2 weeks before using Glow tonic alone. This will make your skin tolerant to Glycolic Acid. I learnt this tip from Pixi Beauty Team on their Instastories 🙂
This is a natural mineral powder with a hint of glow and sheer colour to add luminosity and healthy flush to the cheeks. Rome Rose is a gorgeous Rosy pink with golden sheen that makes skin look alive. This glow-y powder is in collaboration with Aspyn Ovard. This blush is perfect for everyday fresh face look. Natural mineral powder hydrates and reflects light to brighten complexion. This is perfect for all skintones and is a fab pick for autumn to fake that summer glow a bit longer and add rosy hues to the skin.
- Strobe & Bronze Palette | £24
This Strobe & Bronze palette by Pixi + Maryam Maquillage helps add subtle dimension to the features by giving skin a natural glow and sheer sunkissed warmth. I really love the shade selection and texture of these powders. These are very finely milled and the palette is perfect for all skin tones. The powders are so easy to blend and are so buttery that they melt into skin. The palette contains 3 highlight and 3 bronze shades for natural lighting and sunkissed warmth. The bronze shades help create natural definition while highlighters give a soft luminosity to amplify & catch the light.
Now this palette is sheer perfection! The eyeshadow shades selection and the silky soft texture makes it stand out from the crowd. The shades are not just perfect for Autumn/Fall but also look amazing all round the year. This Pixi + ItsJudyTime palette has 12 super silky, highly blend-able eyeshadows that seamlessly transition from day to night. These colours are so pigmented that you can use your fingers to pack on eyeshadows on your lids but don’t forget the blending brush to diffuse harsh lines. I also appreciate that this amazing palette is so affordable.
I have discovered so many amazing products from the brand. I am so impressed with the quality of makeup from a skincare brand. I do think that Pixi Beauty is as serious about their makeup line as they are with the skincare. All products are top notch and they keep the price right in the middle so everyone can afford their amazing products.
Until next time
