Petra Strand, the makeup artist and creator behind masstige makeup line Pixi, is getting into the brand-building business.

“They approached us saying we were all about a touch of magic and they have the most famous fairy in the world and let’s figure out a way to work together,” said Strand. Pixi positions itself as a natural makeup brand that looks to deliver a fresh, radiant look. Read About Target's Other New Exclusive Here >>
