Pixi's Lid and Line- What is all the Fuss About over at Target?Monday, September 20, 2010
If you're like me, you've seen the big display of Pixi at Target and wondered about the products. I don't know much about Pixi, but I've loved that when I check out a product in their line I find that there are multiple uses. The Lid and Line is the perfect example- it isn't just a liner! There's a smudge sponge and a sponge that is somehow infused with shadow.
What I've found is that the Lid and Line is in fact, absolutely perfect for recreating the easy smokey eye that Makeup Artist Jake Bailey taught me a few years ago. In fact, it might be a bit easier with the Pixi product.
I line my lid with the liner, making sure to really get the color down into the last line. I do line the lid a bit thicker than usual, and use a slanted stiff brush to blend the liner down into the lash line, and then using my finger I blend the color up a little onto the lid. I then use the shadow all over my lid. Underneath the lid I may use either the liner in my lash line or if I'm going for a more subtle look, use the shadow underneath the lashes. Overall, this smokey eye takes about 3 or 4 minutes and lasts all day!
I've been using the #2 Smoky Blue for this look, but I really want to pick up the #4 Smoky Olive or #6 Smoky Plum next.
