Everyone in this house is so excited and restless for warmer weather! Spring fever is a real thing, you guys. We are literally itching for the weather to calm down so we can go outside and play! I lieu of my excitement for Spring, I’m collaborating with Burt’s Bees® and EcoTools® to give you guys my take on the perfect Spring Makeup look!
Just like you need to start putting away the chunkier sweaters, the same thing goes for those darker more wintery makeup palettes. Spring time is fresh and light. Instead of deep reds and heavier contouring, the goal for Spring makeup is to give off a more natural and fresh vibe. Light colors, pinks, rosy cheeks and sun kissed bronzes.
I don’t know if you guys saw my snaps about these new lip sticks from Burt’s Bees but I am OBSESSED!! Burt’s Bees prides themselves in having very natural products and not only are they full of the yummy stuff like beeswax, moringa oil and raspberry seed oil, but they’re also hydrating and the color payout is awesome! You can find all these products in the beauty section at Walmart!
^^ Prime your face before you begin and then I’m applying the new Burt’s Bees BB Cream (light) with the EcoTools Skin Perfection Brush.
^^ The BB cream is lightweight coverage but conceals well to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and the brush has dense bristles that are designed to evenly apply the BB cream. It’s shape makes it ideal for precise coverage around the eyes and nose. They actually just released a newer handle that’s got a really pretty blue floral design on it!
EcoTools makes some of my very favorite brushes. They’re incredibly soft, hand crafted and cruelty-free. Their packaging is even repurposed and made from 100% tree-free paper! You gotta love a company that goes above and beyond to help out the world around us.
^^ Next up is the eyes. First you’ll want to prime your lids so your eyeshadow stays put and then swipe a shimmery nude along your lids. I’m using the eye shadow brush in the 6 piece day-to-night EcoTools set you can get in the cosmetic accessories section in Walmart. Then take a light pink color and pack the shadow on from the center of the eyelid to the crease. Next take a slightly darker pink and blend it along the crease. After that I lined my upper lids and applied mascara. Then I lined the lower waterline with a pink/beige color and added mascara to the lower lids.
^^ To brighten up the eyes, I’m using the pointed concealer brush and some concealer one shade lighter than my actual skin tone.
^^ Draw it on in a triangle shape and then blend it really well. This is going to make your eyes pop and really brighten the face giving you a more fresh and natural look.
^^ Then I’m using some bronzer with the angled face brush and I’m just sweeping it near my hairline, under my cheekbones and a little bit around the nose for a light contouring. We don’t want it to be overwhelming though, this is more to add some quiet dimension back into your features. I also added a little bit of a dusty pink blush to the apples of my cheeks.
^^ Next up is the highlight! You can’t have a Spring Makeup look without a really good highlight right over the cheekbones! I’m using the EcoTools highlighting fan brush to apply a shimmery pink color which is going to just brighten the face and make it look very fresh and dewey. This brush is great for sweeping the highlighter on the high points of the face.
^^ And last but not least, the lipstick! These are amaaaaazing! You guys. I love them so much. Savy actually got into this one (of course right?!) so the tip is a little destroyed but this color is awesome. This is the Fuchsia Flood and there are 14 other shades to choose from and the scents and creamy textures are fabulous.
^^ This girl is obsessed with her lipsticks! I’m happy to let her use these ones because they’re so safe and completely natural.
I hope you guys enjoyed this quick little spring makeup look! Let me know if you’d like to see it up on YouTube, maybe something a little more detailed!
