Pixi Eye Reflection Palette Tutorial

I love me some Pixi makeup! I think we all know that by now. They’ve quickly become one of my favorite brands in the last year or so. I’m not saying that just because they send me some amazing PR packages. While I am extremely grateful for that, it’s the quality of their products that have me so obsessed. I’ve very rarely ever been disappointed in any of their products and I’ve learned that they have one of the best eyeshadow formulas. Their new Natural Beauty Eye Reflection palette has been one of my new loves lately.

I first started by priming my eyes with the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome in the shade Gilded Rose. This formula is one of my favorites for my oily eyelids. It helps to lock in eyeshadows all day long and really intensifies their pigmentation.
Going straight into the palette, I’m taking the shade called Rose Clay and blending that in my crease with a Pixi E02 blending brush. This brush is a little flatter than what I would typically use, but it’s super soft and got the job done just as well. While this shade is nicely pigmented, it’s not one that you necessarily have to worry about overdoing. It’s very forgiving.
Next I’m taking a combination of the shades Deep Taupe and Soft Brown, and applying that to the outer half of my eye. You could definitely just use one of these shades or the other, but I just couldn’t choose. And making your own custom shade is so much fun! It adds even more colors to a palette. Once I have the desired amount of pigmentation that I’m looking for, I went in with an empty, loose-bristled blending brush to keep the look as seamless as possible.
Once those shades were blended, I decided I wanted to add in a little more dimension. So I went back into that first Rose Clay shade and applied that right at the edge of the other colors in the crease. By bringing the eyeshadow further up closer to my brow bone, it will make my eye area appear bigger.
For the rest of the lid space, I chose the shade Antique Rose. I patted it in with my finger first to get the most intense color payoff possible and then blended it into my crease with a small shader brush. This color looked a little darker in the pan than it does on the eyes and I love the multidimensional shimmer it has in it.
Although I do really love that Antique Rose shade, I was still wanting to add something else to brighten it even more. I tapped the Petal shade right in the center of my lid with my finger. Tapping it with the finger blends the color all on its own. This was exactly the addition I was looking for to bring it all together.
The lightest matte cream shade, Sheer Sand, is what I’ll be using as a highlight on both my brow bone and on the very inner corner of my eye using the Pixi E01 brush. I love the way bright matte shades like this contrast the eyeshadows on the lid to really make a difference and help the whites of the eye appear brighter.
The dark brown Cocoa Shimmer shade is what I’ll be using as my eyeliner. I applied it as close to my lashline as possible along the upper lashes and halfway along the bottom lashes with an angled eyeliner brush. This shade does have a little bit of glitter in it, but it’s not noticeable when applied in such a small area. If you want it to last even longer, apply a matching pencil liner underneath as a base.
All there’s left to do is curl the lashes and add some mascara. I used the Pixi Black Lacquer Lash Primer followed by two coats of my favorite Benefit Roller Lash mascara. I’ve been adding that primer into the rotation lately and it’s probably the only lash primer I’ve tried that actually makes a noticeable difference.
Here’s a close-up of the final look:
And a quick, more condensed guide recapping every step for easy reference:
To finish this look off, I paired it with one of my newest Makeup Geek blushes in the shade Puppy Love. I also chose to wear my all time favorite Pixi lip combo -- the MatteLast Liquid Lip in the shade Really Rose topped with the Lip Icing in the shade Cake from the Chloe Morello collab. The combination of all these shades makes me so happy. They all just compliment each other so well!
Although I’ve been so obsessed with warm tones for such a long time, the shadows in this palette are giving me so much life right now. I’ve actually surprised myself with how much I’m reaching for this palette. The quality and pigmentation is amazing, the shade range is amazing, the formula is easy to work with. It doesn’t get much better. Stay tuned for a full review with swatches coming next week! ;)
