How I Go from Day to Night with Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons

My mornings almost always start with a workout, and while I don’t always do cardio, I try to push myself to sweat no matter what I’m doing. For me, a huge part of having a successful workout is feeling good about myself from the get-go. If my clothes aren’t comfortable, if my socks don’t match, if my hair is oily, if my skin looks pasty, my motivation plummets. While foundation and eye makeup are no-nos when breaking a sweat, swiping on a little lip color helps me feel more put-together.

Day look with Burt's Bees Lip Crayon Carolina Coast

What’s awesome about Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons is that they’re creamy and moisturizing, so they feel great on my lips. There’s no need to layer on a balm first since the formulation includes shea butter, kendi oil and jojoba oil. Most importantly, they’re lightweight, so even if I’m going out for a long run or doing an intense round of kickboxing, I won’t be distracted by my makeup. Better yet, not only does it feel like there’s nothing on my lips, but my go-to color for day, Carolina Coast, blends naturally with my lips so it’s easy to apply on the run (see what I did there?). It’s not a crayon in a traditional sense since it doesn’t need to be sharpened, but the crayon shape makes for a unique applicator that’s hassle-free, even if you don’t have a mirror handy — just swipe and go. 

Burt's Bees lip crayons Hawaiian Smolder

The lip crayons are not only perfect for day, there are enough shades to add a little drama for evening. I happen to like a matte finish, but you can easily layer on a little gloss for added shine. Post-gym or for a night out, I love Hawaiian Smolder because it’s enough to wake up my whole face no matter how pale and tired my skin looks, so I don’t actually need to wear a lot of makeup. 

A little bit of foundation, some concealer, a swipe of blush on each cheek, a dash of mascara and a little bit of shadow finish off the look. It’s quick, painless and very simple. I keep everything as neutral as possible so that the focal point is really my lips. It’s a perfect pulled-together, but fuss-free, night look. Plus, the six creamy crayons don’t have any added flavor or fragrance, so you can create a tempting and perfectly kissable pout!
