You know we all love a cute makeover! That’s why we were totally into Burt’s Bees new “Style Your Smile” makeover series.
The bomb skincare and lip brand’s product designer, Abena Antwi, partnered up with makeup artist Bobbie Riley to give a few unsuspecting LA residents amazing makeovers, but with a twist. This makeover focuses on enhancing natural beauty, starting with the lips.
A beautiful smile uplifts our spirits and also helps improve our overall health by producing endorphins that relieve stress. What better way to pump up your mood than with a great lip color?
“You can create a whole new look starting from the lips,” says Antwi. “When we smile, it is not just an action, it’s an attitude, and a reflection of how positive and joyful we feel inside.” Antwi is also the mastermind behind two of Burt’s Bee’s marquee lip products – Tinted Lip Balm and Lip Shimmer – which served as star players in the makeovers.
Meet Nikki H
Nikki is a mom of two who, in addition to owning her own businesses, works for a leadership consulting company. She’s a big fan of healthy eating and is the epitome of someone who embraces her natural aesthetic and beauty. This, of course, made her one of Antwi and Riley’s top picks
Nikki chatted about the importance of celebrating natural beauty and the power of a smile while Riley worked her makeup magic.
When asked what “Styling Your Smile” means to her, Nikki shares that it’s about “inner confidence.”
“[When you smile, you make people wonder], where do you get that [confidence] from and how do you exude that?,” she says. “[A great smile] gives you that presence when you walk into a room.”
And, of course, the final touch on Nikki’s beat was all about the lip. I wanted to “give her lip a pop and accentuate her natural lip tone,” shares Riley, who used Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose.
“Your smile is the most important thing,” says Riley. “You can always enhance your beauty with a natural tinted lip balm.”
This Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm not only will give you the right amount of natural color, but the botanical waxes in it offer 8-hours of moisture to take your lips to lovely in one pretty swipe. They come in a range of eight naturally flattering shades.
“With Burt’s Bees, we’re looking for color with care,” explains Antwi. “It’s not just color for your lips. We needed something that’s going to give you moisturization.”
And, Nikki was definitely a fan. “It feels so great! I love this look and I love my smile!”
And, we love it, too! Lip care is a great way to kick off a self-care regimen this holiday season and Burt’s Bees offers up amazing products, including their Tinted Lip Balm and Lip Shimmer, to help uplift and make everyone smile.
