With an ethos built around enhancing your natural beauty with minimum effort and a dedication to creating premium makeup infused with skin-loving ingredients, Pixi Beauty has earned its stripes as my go-to brand when I want an easy, fuss-free look that makes me look like a more well-rested, sophisticated and chicer version of myself in a flash. 

Designed for the "woman on the go" by a working mother of four and makeup artist of over twenty years, Petra Strand, I've been a fan of the brand since my teenage years and am incredibly impressed by their new releases, which include a lengthening fibre mascara and a glow-enhancing day cream. Using the range, I've created this neutral everyday look that takes less than ten minutes and stays looking pretty all day long.

I'm all about making my skin look fresh and awake, and the new Pixi Glowtion Day Dew Brightening Lotion goes above and beyond to do just that. With lavender oil to calm and soothe, mica to brighten and glycerin to retain moisture, it works like a dream when applied under foundation to deliver a lightweight shot of hydration as well as illuminating pigments to boost the radiance and dewiness of your skin. It's one of those products that you swatch then can't stop admiring as the pink pearly sheen is just so pretty, and trust me - it looks a lot prettier on the tops of your cheekbones than it does on the back of your hand!

After applying foundation and a little powder I added colour and definition to my cheeks, forehead and jawline using the Pixi Quick Fix Bronzer. Pixi describe the shade 'Velvet Bronze' as a "soft medium bronze" which gives a gorgeous sunkissed look with the very subtlest of shimmers. It'd work beautifully on olive to deep skintones, however I've used a light hand on my fairer skin and it adds just adds the right amount of warmth!

Moving onto my favourite part of this look, the eyes, I've prepped my eyelids with a primer before using my favourite Pixi Mesmerizing Mineral Palette in 'Copper Peach'. I've used the creamy pale gold, the shimmery peach and the chocolate brown, and thanks to the silky-smooth formula they blend together seamlessly to create this sultry neutral eye. I've also been using the copper russet shade with a wet brush all over the lid and it makes my eyes look impossibly blue! To give the eyes more dimension, one of my most-used products of 2016 so far has been the Pixi Crayon Combo in 'Super Natural' and here I've taken the golden tan along my lower lashline and the matte brown on my upper lashline, which takes seconds and is so effective. If you like a subtle pop of colour, the award-winning and bestselling Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pencil now comes in a new shade 'Cobalt Blue' and looks stunning in the waterline or as winged liner with an edge.

To complete the eyes, the new Pixi Lengthy Fiber Mascara gives an "effortlessly extended effect" to the point where my dad asked if I was wearing false lashes, which I couldn't believe! If you like natural-looking mascaras with minimal clumping and prefer length over volume, I'd wholeheartedly recommend this as it gives a flirtatiously fluttery and wide-eyed look that doesn't feel as if you're wearing anything at all.

I finished the look with a quick swipe of the Pixi Mattelustre Lipstick in 'Peach Blossom', a "sunkissed mango peach" that perfectly pulls together the copper warm-toned eyes and naturally bronzed cheeks. With Vitamin C & Vitamin E, peptides and hyaluronic acid, the conditioning formula glides over lips leaving them looking plumper and smoother with a demi-matte finish. I topped it with a lighter peachy gloss, and can see myself wearing this combination so much during summer!

Inspired by Pixi's "flawless in a few fuss-free minutes" approach to beauty and makeup for those of us who want to look polished and put-together with prestige products that are easy to use and effective, I've been wearing this look daily and love how it can be be dialled up for nighttime in no time at all.
