Free Your Beauty

NYFW has arrived and that’s all everyone is talking about! I partnered with Burt’s Bees to share how I define my own beauty while trying on some of their beauty products! I find the power of makeup can change the way one looks, acts, and even breathes. My favorite trend to see on the runway is timeless complete with flawless skin, bold eyes and flush lips. This NYFW makeup look inspires me to embrace my natural beauty, care for my skin and still take risks…with color.

I am 34 years old and wearing NO makeup makes me feel uncomfortable. I feel like you can see how tired I am, or when I am having an allergy attack, and all of my age spots I will forever call freckles.

I tend to be quite rebellious, so I’m not usually influenced to change who I am, or how I look, based on external beauty standards.For me, being beautiful constantly searching to become  healthier and wiser, while learning to be mentally and emotionally secure with who I am and who I want to become. I used to be very critical of myself until I started to implement self-love practices. Now, I embrace my imperfections and celebrate my uniqueness.

I recently became obsessed with natural makeup / health products so Burt’s Bees Beauty was a no brainer. Burt’s Bees Goodness Glows Liquid Makeup is hydrating, evens and smooths skin, and formulated without silicones or parabens. It it by far one of the best natural foundation I have used.

Finding my perfect color match was not difficult. I swatched 3 shades that I thought might match, and I went with the bottom color: 1045 Warm Honey.

Trend alert: Glass Skin.

I achieved this runway staple with the Burt’s Bees All Aglow Lip & Cheek Stick in 1250 Suez Sand. Apply directly to the skin, and use clean finger tips to blend in! This product can be used on your cheeks and lips for dewy hydrated finish.

Hopefully you were able to catch my InstaStories where I shared a STORTorial (short tutorial) on how I used the Burt’s Bees Eye Shadow Trio in 1510 Blooming Desert.

If you have super sensitive eyes, or wear contact lenses, you should check out this mascara! The Burt’s Bees Nourishing Mascara is long – wearing, 100% natural, and formulated without parabens! It is available in two shades: Classic Black, and Black Brown (which I am wearing).

For the most part I keep my makeup routine and looks simple. I do experiment with color, even more so when fall comes to town. Neutral tones are my comfort zone, so the 18 high-impact and vibrant shades Burt’s Bees Liquid Lipsticks have my attention! Did you know that there are six gilded shades exclusive to CVS too? There are SO many shades to choose from that it is hard to pick! You can find them at your local CVS.

This is my final look! How did I do? I want to know what your favorite NYFW trends are this year in the comments section, and how you feel like you adapt them to your personal beauty looks. Social Media makes it difficult NOT to compare ourselves to others. I hope you leave my blog knowing you are beautiful and unique! OWN IT! As always thank you so much for reading!
