Being a work-at-home mom, it’s very rarely that I am required to look my best every single day. Don’t get me wrong. If I am heading out or running errands, I want to look presentable. I just don’t put a lot of effort into the look.
Which is a relatively new thing for me. I used to never leave the house without a full face of makeup. But with two kids and deadlines and a house to keep in order, there just isn’t any time.
Day to Night Makeup with Burt’s Bees
To help me put my best face forward every day, I do a light look. It consists of three things: Burt’s Bees New BB Cream (in light), mascara, and Burt’s Bees Tinted Lint Balm. The BB Cream helps even out my skin tone, moisturize, and protect with SPF 15. With my sensitive skin, this step is a must! The mascara helps opens my eyes and make me look like I am awake and the tinted lip balm puts a little color on my face.
In less than 5 minutes, I am ready to drop the kids off to school and run my errands! But there are times when I need a little more. A quick girls’ night out. The rare date night. Time is always of the essence so I need something quick and easy to do.
For my night look, I build upon my day look. I already have a good base with the BB Cream and might just need a little concealer or highlight cream. Next, some bronzer. Not a lot! I wouldn’t be fooling anyone that I have just returned from a tropical vacation.
For eyes, I light smokey eye created with neutral colors. I have not gotten adventurous when it comes to the eyes. I never like a heavy eye. Well not on me! Every time I have tried to create the look, I looked like I gave myself a black eye. And that is not the look we are going for here people! After my eye is done, I touch up my mascara and move onto the final step.
Lips. Burt’s Bees has recently launched a “NEW” line of lipsticks available in 14 full coverage, satin-finish shades. They are currently Available at Target and, when I went to pick out my perfect shade, I had a hard picking just one! So I narrowed it down to three: Nile Nude, Suede Splash, and Russet River.
For my night look, I am going with Russet River! These new lipsticks from Burt’s Bees are creamy and lightweight feel which are perfect for me! The reason I normally steer clear of lipstick is because they feel too heavy and sticky. But these lipsticks feel just like my tinted lip balm. They also hydrate and moisturize dry lips for 8 hours. And with this cold winter weather we’ve been having, I definitely need!
Now that I have plan, I can easily go from day to night with my new favorite Burt’s Bees products.
