Spring is one of my favorite seasons. I love the shades that correspond with the onset of spring, I love the makeup looks that get dewier and more fresh and natural looking. I love that it’s ok to glow in Spring. I love the lipsticks. I just love everything about it.
I’m sharing a quick and easy 5 Minute Spring Makeup Look with you today and exactly how to achieve it. With the new Burt’s Bees® BB Cream, Burt’s Bees® Lipsticks and some makeup brushes from EcoTools®, you’re in for an affordable look that is super quick to do.
Once I applied my skincare and primer, I was ready for the base of my look. I reached for my Burt’s Bees® BB Cream, I’m using the shade light but it’s available in 3 mineral-rich shades. I love the Burt’s Bees® BB Cream because it offers a decent amount of coverage, masking all my redness and imperfections while still being completely lightweight. I put a bit on my hand and use my EcoTools Skin Perfection Brush to apply it.
I dab it all over my face and begin to blend out. The Burt’s Bees® BB Cream conceals and firms as you apply to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The EcoTools Skin Perfection Brush is perfect to apply with because you get even coverage, the rounded edge of the brush is ideal for precise coverage around the eyes and nose. It’s designed to use with BB creams and is dermatologist tested.
At this point I like to really start stippling with the brush so I can make sure I am getting even coverage and it’s covering up all of my redness. The angled edge is used to easily apply to hard-to-reach areas on your face.
Once I’ve got a decent amount of coverage, I grab for the EcoTools Blending & Bronzing Brush, this plush duo-fiber brush allows you to achieve a build-able sun-kissed bronze. I use it to apply bronzer around the perimeter of my face just to warm things up a bit since I am so pale. I use sweeping motions and also add some bronzer to my temples and down my neck to blend everything together.
Once I’ve warmed up my face, I like to go in with a contour shade and really give myself some definition. For this I’m using the Angled Face Brush from the EcoTools 6 Piece Day-To-Night Set which is one of my all time favorite brushes to contour and apply blush with. Make a bit of a fish face, and use this to sweep on your contour shade.
The angled brush is such a good little multi-tasker, you can use it to contour your nose with which is the next step in my Spring Makeup Look. Less is more here, my friends.
We’re back to a slight fishy face as we go in with that same Angled Face Brush to apply our blush before moving onto our highlight. I like to do blush at this point so that it’s not covering up the glow from my highlight when I add it.
From that same EcoTools 6 Piece Day-to-Night Set you’re going to grab the Highlighting Fan Brush to apply your highlighter. Highlight is going to go on the very top of your cheekbones, a little down your nose and a bit in your cupids bow.
I love how versatile the brushes in the EcoTools 6 Piece Day-to-Night Set are, and that it even comes with a on-the-go clutch. Here for my inner corner highlight I’m using the Pointed Concealer Brush. I wanted the inner corner to really pop because for this 5 Minute Spring Makeup look, we’re not going to apply to eye shadow. We’re keeping our lids nude, so instead of using this brush to conceal with we are using it to place that highlight and really make it glow.
At this point you can go ahead and fill your brows in, grab your favorite mascara and pick out an eyeliner. I went with a bright blue liner since the eyes are staying bare. Now that the look is almost complete, it’s time to pick out a lipstick.
I had a lot to choose from, the Burt’s Bees® Lipstick come in 14 full coverage, satin-finished shades. And I decided to go with Tulip Tide.
I picked this shade up a few months back and it’s been almost a daily staple in my routine. It was a bit out of my comfort zone at first but I’ve really just fallen in love with it. These lipsticks are amazing. They hydrate and moisturize lips for up to 8 hours thanks to a natural formula featuring Beeswax, Moringa Oil and Raspberry Seed Oil.
And there you have it, Spring Makeup in 5 minutes! You can pick up all of the Burt’s Bees® and EcoTools product in your local Walmart store in the beauty aisle. Burt’s Bee’s is specifically in the Natural Beauty section in store and the EcoTools products are in the Cosmetic Accessories section.
