|Me and Petra Strand|
Petra met with me in the lobby of the San Diego Grand Hyatt, the hotel where she was staying for the weekend. She was making an appearance at two San Diego Target stores along with her team of makeup artists to offer beauty tips and give makeovers.
After talking with Petra for just a few minutes, I began to see the connection. Her down-to-earth, no fuss approach to makeup is right up my beauty alley. Here's the video of the interview where she shares how she started the Pixi brand, who inspires her, what favorite spring beauty looks are, and more...
The day after the interview I attended the Pixi beauty event at the Mira Mesa Target store. It was supposed to be outside, but the rain changed that whole plan. I made the trek up north anyway curious to see how Petra would make me over. If you know me, I'm very minimalistic when it comes to wearing makeup, so I was excited, but a little nervous. The last time someone gave me a makeover was over 15 years ago at a Clinique counter in Macy's!
Here is my before and after shot...
The Target camera crew filmed Petra giving me the makeover, so be on the lookout for the video :)
