I recently had the chance to ask Pixi’s international makeup artist Amanda Bell a few questions about Pixi and go behind the brand.
Pixi was founded by Swedish makeup artist Petra Strand and started right here in the UK 15 years ago, with 1 small boutique in Soho/London from which it has continued to grow.

A: Here’s What I Used
“Glow mist to prep the skin (new)
Palette Bronzette (new) the most perfect collection of ultra wearable shades to give a
subtle/defined eye/pop of colour to the cheeks and a fresh highlighted/contour effect.
lips- Liplift max a genuine gamechanger..a lip gloss packed with peptides to plump the pout but also treat the lip and leave lips smooth and silky soft.”
I came across Pixi a year or two ago and in 2014 visited the Carnaby street store for the first time. I am now a loyal fan and if you watch my tutorials you will know the love I have for the peach correction concentrate. It improved the look of under my eyes so much that after the video a few units were sold. It really is magic!
I also love the flawless primer which illuminates my skin, I use this before foundation application and as a highlight afterwards.
Products to try
Large lash mascara – this gives lashes a jet black fuller lash look
Brightening Peach Correction Concentrate – the peach corrects blue tones associated with dark circles and also brightens. It’s my make-up must-have!
