Summer 2020 might not have started off how we expected, but as we slowly adjust to a ‘new normal’, it’s important that we do things that make us feel good – so we can enjoy the rest of the warmer months with a little spring in our step. Why not experiment with a new look? It’s a perfect time to try out some of the hottest makeup trends this season. Whether you’re meeting up with old friends for a drink or getting ready to head back into the office, we’ve put together a little guide on how to achieve your new Summer makeup look using Burt’s Bees makeup. 

Keeping it natural

This look is for those who like makeup with minimal effort. Naturallooking makeup is incredibly popular this Summer, with a focus on dewy skin to create that beautiful sun-kissed glow. Our Tinted Moisturiser provides a great base to achieve the no-makeup look, as it provides a lightweight, sheer coverage while hydrating and protecting skin. Illuminate with the help of our All Aglow Highlighter Stick, which brightens and defines the face.  

When it comes to your eyes, less is more is the rule to remember. Keep it simple and enhance lashes with the Burt’s Bees Nourishing Mascara to lengthen and define. Use our Eyebrow Pencil to add some natural-looking shape and definition to your brows. 

For your lips and cheeks, opt for a warmer shade to brighten your face. A good option is our All Aglow Lip & Cheek Stick in Peach Pond, which will add a pop of natural colour that gives you an understated, healthy-looking glow. 

Bold summer makeup

For those occasions where you want to up the ante, try one of the bolder Summer makeup looks. The general rule with statement makeup is to choose between emphasising the eyes or the lips. In short, if you do one, keep the other understated and simple. So, with that in mind, what summer makeup looks can you try with Burt’s Bees makeup? 

Pastel eyes

Pastel shades are a great option in Summer. Combine soft, subtle colours such as lavender and peach with lashings of your favourite mascara. We love our Volumising Mascara, which has a smudge and flake-proof formula to help create defined and voluptuous lashes. Our favourite eyeshadow of the Summer is Countryside Lavender Eyeshadow Trio, which provides longlasting and easytoblend colour to create your ideal finish. For lips, we recommend something subtle like our Tinted Lip Balm in Zinnia, which provides a hint of rosy colour and up to 8 hours of moisture. Alternatively, finish with the Burt’s Bees Lip Balm in your favourite fragrance! 

Hot pink lips

There’s only one colour you need on your lips this summer to make a statement – hot pink. If you like a matte finish, our Matte Lip Crayon in Hawaiian Smoulder is the colour for you. If you prefer a touch of shimmer, opt for our nourishing Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb, which delivers a tinted luminescent colour, while also moisturising and hydrating lips 

If you don’t want to go too bold, try our Tinted Lip Oil in Whispering Orchid, which provides just a hint of colour with a smooth, glossy sheen. When you’re sporting a hot pink lip, try to keep your eye makeup subtle so that your lips really pop. A couple of coats of your favourite mascara and a dash of our Nourishing Eyeliner will ensure that your eyes are nicely defined, without taking the focus away from your lips.
