Hey beauties! I have a different type of post for you today besides a boring old review. I thought it would be fun to create a day & night make look with the Pixi Beauty x Heart Defensor Eye Heart Palette.
In December Pixi Beauty sent me a gorgeous collection of their Pixi Pretties collaborations, including the beautiful Eye Heart palette from Heart Defensor. The palette contains ten eyeshadows in a mix of matte & shimmer finishes. This is the same eyeshadow formula that can be found in the Pixi Eye Reflections palettes, so if you want to know a little bit more about the formula you can check out my review.
Pixi Eye Heart Palette Looks
Even if we can’t go out right now due to the Covid-19 Pandemic I think it’s important to normalize our routine. Some of us still work in jobs that are considered necessary public services, and are still going to work each day. I wear makeup daily, even when I’m just in my house! It’s one of my favourite parts of my morning routine and it makes me feel normal and like I haven’t given up on myself just because of the lockdown.

This soft orange makeup look from the Pixi Eye Heart Palette reminds me that Spring is coming. It’s still rather cold and snowy outside where I live, so even if it is officially Springtime it doesn’t feel like it yet. Oranges are complementary to blue eyes, so I’ll wear these oranges all I can!

Eye Heart Palette Looks
Okay, so now for my night look. The darkest matte shade in the palette isn’t really all that dark. It can be hard to build depth using the Eye Heart Palette alone, but sometimes you don’t necessarily need that dark outer V to have a complete eyeshadow look.
Instead of a darker matte in the outer V I used the shimmery purple shade all over the outer corner, and halfway across my lid. Then I used a matte shade all over my half cut crease, and blended the centre with an orangey champagne shimmer. I absolutely love how this cut crease came out! I’ve been trying to remember to practice them more — Practice makes perfect!
Which look is your favourite?
I wish you all safety, health and happiness right now. The world is in turmoil, but remember that it is not ending. We will recover, we will rebuild, and we will be stronger. Maybe the Alberta Premier will stop trying to gut our healthcare system after this… Who knows? Let me know how you’re surviving lockdown, quarantine, isolation, etc.
Keep your head up! x
