Last May, I wrote a quick feature on Pixi’s 2015 Spring Summer Collection, which included the Glow Mist, Brow Powder Palette, Lip Lift Max, and Endless Silky Eye Intensify Duo. Of the four products in the selection, I found myself using the Glow Mist and Brow Powder Palette often during fashion makeup class.
What I love about the Brow Powder Palette is how versatile it is. It represents Petra Strand’s (founder of Pixi) beauty philosophy that makeup should be simple, and need not be complicated. Petra’s products also promise to be multi-purpose, which is exactly what the Brow Powder Palette offers.
Below are three different ways I’ve used (or continue to use) Pixi’s Brow Powder Palette (either on myself or on my clients).
1. As a Brow Powder
This, of course, is the most evident way to use it. The palette comes in six different shades—perfect for those who color their hair often. I like how the pigmentation isn’t too heavy at first application, so it allows you to build the product as you go along. If you ask me, I prefer this much more than applying it too dark at the start, and then having to erase it after.
2. As an Eye Shadow
I love that the palette can also double as an eye shadow! I usually play around with the three darkest shades, both for my eye makeup base and for the crease. The top shade can be used to highlight the brow bone.
3. For Highlighting and Contouring
Because the palette is matte, I discovered that I can actually use it to highlight and contour! This happened when I was too lazy to take out my contour kit from my train case, and the Brow Powder Palette happened to be out already. Since then, I’ve been using it to highlight and contour the nose if I wanted it to look more lifted or in Filipino, “matangos.” I just use the lightest shade to highlight, and the middle or fourth shade (from the top) to contour.
So those are three different ways I like to use Pixi’s Brow Powder Palette! You can grab one for just Php 750 at Glamourbox Landmark Makati or Landmark Trinoma, Purebeauty Serendra, Trinoma, or Glorietta 4, and Common Thread Rockwell or Greenbelt 5. You can also get it online at www.glamourbox.ph.
