Pixi x Weylie Tutorial

Remember the last 15 billion times I’ve said that I’m obsessed with warm-toned brown eyeshadows? Yea, that obsession is still going strong. So is my love for new Pixi products, and Youtuber Weylie Hoang absolutely hit it out of the park with her new Dimensional Eye Creator Kit collaboration. In case you missed last week’s full review, you can catch up on all the details about the quality, shade selection, etc here. This tutorial will just be focusing on how I use every single eyeshadow in the palette to create an entire look from start to finish.

This palette does have a pretty even amount of matte and shimmer shades, so you could really use any eyeshadow primer that you have already. Rather than going with my favorite matte primer from Milani, I chose to go with the shimmery Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome in the shade Gilded Rose. It won’t show any glitter through the matte shades, but it will dramatically intensify the shimmers.
Going straight into the palette, I’m taking the shade called Potato (the shade names are on the back of the packaging) and using that as my transition shade. I used a blending brush to apply that to the outer half of my eye and crease area. Placing this shade down first will help the other colors to blend more smoothly. Not that they need any help, though, because the quality of these shades is amazing!

Then I took the shade called Sista and put that on the outer corner of my eye with a slightly more dense blending brush. I did pack this one on more than the other shade because I really want it to show up after the next few steps. Once I had the color built up to what I wanted, I went in with a separate, empty, loose-bristled blending brush to blur the edges.
To add a little more definition, I took the shade called Beautis and placed that in a sideways “V” shape on the very outer corner of my eye with an angled eyeshadow brush. When I first got this palette, I was a little scared of this shade because I thought it was too red-based for what I would normally wear, but it is stunning paired with the other shades in this palette. Just don’t forget to blend after this step, too. It makes the biggest difference!!
For the rest of the eyelid, I took the pink shimmer called Gurl! and put that where I didn’t have any other color on the inner half of the eye. I’m not sure why, but this is a more powdery formula that has a lot of fallout so I have to apply it with my finger to make sure it doesn’t go all over my cheeks. This is also the reason I chose to go with the more tacky primer.
I do really like the way it looks with that combination and you could totally use the Itty Bitty shade as a brow bone and inner corner highlight, as they’re probably made for. But I love layering Itty Bitty over the top of Gurl!. The pink from Gurl! still shows through, it’s just that Itty Bitty brightens up the lid so much more. It’s not enough with just Itty Bitty, though, they have to be layered! I apply Itty Bitty with my finger also and then blend it all out in the crease with a small shader brush.
If you used Itty Bitty as a highlight, you wouldn’t have to worry about bringing in another shade. I really like the contrast of a shimmery eyelid and a matte inner corner so I brought in my beloved Ulta single eyeshadow in the shade Naked. I use this in almost every single eyelook I ever do, which you’d already know if you’ve seen any of my tutorials before. I just apply it with a small smudge brush right to the very inner corner of my eye.
For an everyday look, I haven’t been adding eyeshadow to my lower lashline just because it makes for a lighter daytime look and it’s faster. But for the sake of the tutorial, why not? If you have the extra few seconds, it does add a lot to the look. I combined a little bit of Potato and Sista together and applied that with a pencil brush lightly underneath my lower lashes. I never take this step too dark, but it all depends on your eye shape. For me, too much on the lower lashes would drag the eyes down and make them look droopy. I have enough undereye circles that take care of that on their own!
Aside from the eyeshadow palette, there is also a dual-ended eyeliner included in Weylie’s eye kit. One side has a felt tip liner and the other side has a kohl liner. I chose to use the kohl side because I find it easier to work with. It’s so pigmented, I barely even had to touch it to my eye. Then, to soften the line a little bit, I added in the shade called Bomb from the palette directly on top of the kohl pencil with an angled eyeliner brush. This is more of a purple shade, but the color of it isn’t very noticeable when layered over the rich black pigment.
Then all there was left to do was mascara. I added three coats of Tarte’s Tarteist Lash Paint mascara that I’m really enjoying right now. This is more of a daytime look, so it’s not necessarily something that I’d pair falsies with. Three coats of this dramatic mascara seems to do the trick!
Here’s a close-up of the final look:
And a quick, more condensed guide recapping every step for easy reference:
I seriously cannot get enough of this eyeshadow palette. With all the options that I have in my collection to choose from, I’ve only been reaching for this one palette the past few months. The colors are exactly what I’ve been obsessed with and the quality is just unbelievable. The shade range in this palette isn’t the biggest and while there may not be too many options for looks that can be achieved with it, I don’t see myself getting tired of this combo any time soon!
