I just had a baby. As in, just a few weeks ago and I had no idea what I was in for. Needless to say, I haven’t left my house much except for doctors appointments and let’s be honest, haven’t left my pajamas on most days.
With it being spring and getting warmer out, I have been craving some time outdoors and a little date night with my husband. With all the sleepless nights and long days, we could use a little time to connect. My brother recently moved to town, and he agreed to watch our little sweet baby while we grab some dinner and adult conversation.
I want to have a fresh makeup look for spring but also perfect for a low-key date night but that doesn’t take too long to put together either. Time is of the essence around here with a new baby.
Looking at my first pic before makeup, I realize how tired I look!
Here is my date-night makeup tutorial for a first date after new baby:
I am really picky with my makeup brushes. I have super sensitive skin, so I want a brush that does not irritate my face but also does the best job of applying my makeup. This is why I love EcoTools® brushes because they have the softest bristles and superior in getting the coverage I am looking for.
1. I start with a wash and moisturized face, I then use the Skin Perfecting Brush to apply the Burt’s Bees® light BB cream. The straight and dense bristles are designed to apply Burt’s Bees® BB Cream smoothly and evenly around your face, even the harder to cover spots like around the eyes and nose.
2. I need to cover the dark circles under my eyes from the lack of sleep that I am getting with the new baby. I need a good brush to hide all the dark under my eyes and lids. I choose my concealer and apply it with the EcoTools® Pointed Concealer Brush
3. I use the new EcoTools® Blending and Bronzer brush to bring some color to my face (I can’t remember the last time I saw the sun) and blend it with my bb cream for a fresh look.
4. I use the EcoTools® Eye Shadow Brush to add some depth sexiness to my eyes for my date. But not too dark, because I want to have a pretty spring look. The EcoTools® eye shadow brush allows me to be precise in getting the exact look I want for my eyes. I decided to forgo using eyeliner because I wanted to keep my look fresh for spring and a good eyeshadow and brush will do the trick.
5. The EcoTools® Angled face brush is what I use to apply blush. It is perfect for getting right in the apples of my cheekbones.
6. After I have the look I want with my eyeshadow, I apply Mascara for the finished look of my eyes.
7. The EcoTools® Detailed lip liner brush is perfect for lining my lips with the Burt’s Bees® lipstick in Lily Lake color. I take the brush and line my lips with my desired color, then fill it in with the lipstick for the perfect lip.
The EcoTools® brushes are amazing and feel so good on my sensitive skin. Here are some other amazing facts about these bamboo brushes:
– Hand crafted and precisely cut bristles that are incredibly soft and cruelty-free
– Recycled aluminum ferrules
– Re-purposed packaging is made with 100% tree-free paper

I love Burt’s Bees® because I know when I buy any product, I know I am getting the best quality and it always has the best texture and scent nature has to offer. I also love always buy Burt’s Bees® because their products are always free of Parabens, Pthalates, Petrolatum and SLS and never tested on animals. That is really important to me.
