As a mum, makeup artist, and PIXI creator, my life is bursting at the seams with inspirations & impressions. I live my life by the motto “live love & laugh” and whether I am working or focusing on my family, I try to infuse passion and creativity into everything I do. Here I hope to share with you some of my ideas of all things beautiful.
With love, Petra

Get Kristin's favorite Pixi product, Eye Bright Kit at: http://pixibeauty.com/eyes/eye-bright-kit

I met up with Kristin Chenoweth at NY Fashion Week not long ago - what a lovely, super-talented lady! She radiated warmth & beauty inside and out. 

She told me she swears by the Eye Bright Kit and I have to say, I'm with her! Such a handy flaw-fixer - we all need one sometimes!

Angie Harmon is a stunning beauty - and clearly, as we can see here, she has impeccable taste in makeup! :)

Tiffani Thiessen is a fan of our Succulent Lip Twin in Opal Orchid and who can blame her? It's our bestselling Succulent Lip Twin shade and is so convenient for both stars & non-famous Pixi lovers alike - with a cream colour for lips & cheeks in the cap + a tinted lip balm in the tube, it's very handy to take on-the-go.
