When I think of summer, I think of a “no-makeup look,” something that feels light, provides enough coverage and lasts all day. Pixi by Petra has great waterproof and heat-resistant products. This line really impressed me. Here are some thoughts and tips:
1. Ditch the heavy foundation for H2O SkinTint, a water-resistant, hydrating, tinted face gel. The formula is light and cooling, a natural look with great coverage. One problem: It comes in only 3 shades. $24.
2. Nothing refreshes more on a hot summer day than this versatile Makeup Fixing Mist. Spray face or brush before applying foundation and makeup will last longer. Use it after makeup’s on (but before applying mascara) to set it in place, then any time for a refresher. Be careful: Spray comes out heavily, so hold it far from your face. $15.
3. The Undercover Crayon conceals dark areas and imperfections. And it’s waterproof. It will not budge! My favorite way to apply it is by dabbing it on, then using a finger to blend it in. Unfortunately, only 4 shades here. $14.
