Beauty Swellness: Pixi Beauty

Pixi Beauty

Target stores have started opening in Canada, what, what! (Remember when I met Bullseye at the launch event, and oh yeah, hello Nate Berkus!). I haven’t made the trek yet, can’t wait til one opens closer to me!

One of the beauty brands they’ll be carrying is Pixi Beauty and I snagged a quick chat with the L.A.-based makeup artist founder behind Pixi Beauty, Petra Strand.

What are your essential healthy to-dos every day?
“One, go for a brisk walk in the fresh air, and two, drink lots of water.”

How do you stay active?
“Running after my six year old — we play soccer a lot! My bruised legs prove it!”

How do you cheat looking fresh and healthy when you’re not really feeling it?
“Blush, blush, blush! Bronze Bloom Trio is the perfect dull-day remedy. Apply bronzer where the sun would normally touch your face with a large-ish, fluffy brush. Add pink or peach to the apples of the cheeks in a circular movement and a hint on the centre of the lids to brighten the eyes.”

Guilty pleasure?
“Oh! Soo many…chocolate, cheese and red wine!”

(And check out the gorgeous Eye Glow Cube palette above — so many flattering neutrals all in one compact palette; I’ll be taking this on my next trip!)

    I’m saddened to know that a cnd store like Zellers is now gone. I used to do quite a bit of shopping there, even though it was out of my way to go there. I guess its just a sign of the times
