It’s been a crazy season (wait, do I say that every season?) with the holidays coming up and all of my recent traveling. I feel like I’ve finally been able to catch my breath this week and soon I’ll be able to relax with my family for a few days. All that stress has been a little hard on my skin lately (ugh) so I’ve been trying to really take care of it with safe, all natural makeup and healthy foods.
It couldn’t have been better timing for a collaboration with Burts Bees, because all of their makeup products are made entirely with natural ingredients, literally from nature. They use ingredients like bees wax, bamboo and even raspberry seed oil. I decided to try out a full face using entirely Burts Bees’ collection and I loved the final look.
going for bold and natural at the same timeI went for a pretty bold eye with one of their shimmery eyeshadows (the Blooming Desert palette) and a soft pink lip. I was kind of obsessed with how perfectly the shadow matched my shirt and I loved that it was a bolder look with still a somewhat natural shade. I also really liked their foundation because they have so, so many color options — they have a variety from light to dark but also from cooler to warmer tones, so I was able to get exactly the color I needed for my skin.
Burts Bees is running a campaign right now called “I AM NOT SYNTHETIC” and it’s all about how we say we love the all-natural looks and fresh, natural skin, but ironically a lot of the products we often use are full of synthetic ingredients even if we’re not thinking about it. They’re promoting natural products for that beautiful, natural look and I am all (clap) a (clap) bout (clap) it.
