The holiday hustle is officially upon us! ‘Tis the season—whether in person or from a distance—to enjoy quality time and a true connection with our loved ones. Ever bare your soul while styling your Hermana’s hair? Or share a secret with your Prima while trying on shoes and chismoseando? If the answer is yes, you know that the real bonding happens while you’re getting ready. 

That’s why we’re excited to share ‘BELatina News’ five favorite and oh-so-useful beauty tips to help you get holiday ready. Because having an “ah-ha” makeup moment — like when your Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm brings that perfect shine — is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

#1: A good base is key to a flawless, long-lasting holiday lewk

Exfoliate and use a good moisturizer before applying any and all makeup, but this is especially true for that smile! We love this DIY homemade scrub: (1) Mix brown sugar and extra virgin olive oil into a small bowl (2) Apply a small amount with pads of your fingers (3) Rinse with lukewarm water and air-dry. 

#2: Focus on one show stopping feature with your makeup

We all love holiday parties and want to get all dolled up—but don’t overdo it. Avoid going all out with lips, eyes, cheeks, and hair.  In other words, less is more! If you’re going for a bold lip, then go for a neutral eye. Or, if dramatic eyes and lashes are your thing, your Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm will balance with a soft dewy lip!

#3: There’s nothing wrong in showing up and being the super fabulous Prima

If you’re wondering if you’re being “too extra” with your heels and by wearing extravagant dress for your tia’s backyard, you’re not. It’s been a long two years and you deserve to show yourself off, even if it’s to strut around the living room. Besides, who else missed bonding through the loud music, the food, the dancing, and the parties that lasted until ungodly hours? We know we did, which is why we want everyone to show up to their holiday events looking flawless.  

#4: Buy products that are multi-purpose

When you’re short on time or travel space, grab products that can serve multiple purposes. Did you know your mascara can double as brow gel? 

#5: Keep your Burt’s Bees lip balm on hand and ready at all times!

Come New Year’s Eve before midnight, you’ll be glad you have your Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm! Pro-tip: Throw it in your clutch for all night use. It also makes the perfect stocking stuffer for everyone on your list! Trust…you will thank us later.
