Sun-Kissed Glow
This palette consists of the shades Aurora, Solar and Dusk. This happened to be my favorite palette of the 2 because the pigment complimented my skin tone easily giving me a natural glow.

I have always been a fan of Sonia Kashuk’s brushes, so when I was able to finally get my hands on her latest set – the exclusive Knockout Beauty Collection, which debuted in Target early this March – I was beyond ecstatic! The line was created by Sonia herself, along with the artist Dana Louise Kirkpatrick, to empower women with inspiring messages like “love is all you need” and “you are a knockout”. These messages are cute little reminders as I apply my makeup each day. The set includes: a Powder Brush, Blush Brush, Applicator Brush, Concealer Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Eyeliner Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Smudge Brush, Lip Color Brush, Eyebrow Comb/Brush. Along with the collection, I also purchased the Matte Lipstick in “Power Punch”, which is a beautiful vibrant red.

Not only are the brushes of great quality, but they also apply makeup so beautifully! Let me show you the “Knockout Beauty” look I created using brushes from the collection.

I’m so happy to continue partnering with Target to share some awesome beauty stories and tips with you all for 2016. This spring, Pixi is launching its first ever skincare line “Skintreats” sold exclusively at Target! This line is formulated with natural, skin illuminating products to maintain a youthful glowing look. These products came just in time, as I was looking for new items to spruce my skin care regimen. I’m going to share with you my current skincare routine using the Pixi line.

Moisturizing Cleansing Cloths
First thing I usually like to do before cleansing my face is removing all of my makeup with a facial cloth. It’s the best way to ensure that you have successfully removed all traces of makeup before cleansing. These ultra nourishing pre-moistened cleansing cloths are not only super soft and gentle, but they hydrate & refresh your skin while lifting away impurities. I like that each soft cloth is infused with aloe vera and camellia oil to soothe skin, leaving it feeling refreshed & hydrated.

Glow Mud Mask:
After removing all of my makeup, I like to use the Glow Mud Mask right after.
It’s a purifying, glow-revealing clay mask made to purify & balance skin. Not only does it stimulate and clarify, but it also brightens the skin. While absorbing oils it also draws out impurities, and fights breakouts while giving an energizing boost to the complexion. Kaolin & sea salt purify while ginseng & aloe vera balance. I have really oily skin and I love that it soaks up all the excess oil, without leaving my skin dry.

24k Eye Elixir
Nothing is worse than waking up with bulgy-puffy tired eyes that screams you haven’t slept in ages. For someone who hardly sleeps, this is a must have for me! Thankfully, this elixir an anti-fatigue peptide serum that massages away puffiness as it smoothes and refreshes the eye area. It has peptides that plump fine lines and raspberry that tones the skin. The best part is the cooling rollerball applicator that soothes & encourages circulation around the eye.

Nourishing Lip Polish
Last but not least, if you are a big Matte-Lipstick wearer like I am, you’re definitely in for a treat! This 2-in-1 lip exfoliator + nourisher helps repair & protect dry, sensitive lips. Infused with shea butter & a blend of sweet almond, apricot, and evening primrose oils. It also has this unique massage applicator stimulates circulation, that gives a healthy plumped effect. It also has a lovely smell and taste which is a bonus!
