Although I have always been familiar with the Burts Bees brand due to always having a lip balm in every handbag, drawer and coat pocket I have to confess until recently I had yet to try the makeup range.
A few weeks ago I received a lovely parcel of Burts Bees makeup products to sample so I was keen to pull together one wearable look, perfect for the natural bride using only these products.
Before creating my look, I had prepped my skin by cleansing, moisturising and priming my eyelids (with non Burts Bees products) but my lips were moisturised with the Burts Bees All Weather lip balm pre makeup application and I used only 6 products to create the full bridal inspired look using only Burts Bees makeup.
Check out this short tutorial showing you how I created this look. My aim is always to show real women, real skin and zero editing.
Personally I love the dewy look. It is super pretty for brides and also very flattering for mature skin. I LOVED the results of my base. Although the foundation was probably heavier coverage than I am used to wearing it did feel really nice on my skin as it hydrates and nourishes but the cheek and lip stick was the winning product for me. Firstly being a multi-purpose product means it takes up less space in the makeup bag and perfect for travelling but also, it made my skin glow without the need for adding a highlighter. I had so many compliments on this look and mostly due to my glowing skin.
