The past few weeks we have been so spoiled with gorgeous warm spring weather! We have been spending our afternoons with the kids in the backyard (when Veda isn’t melting down because of flies!) and enjoying every breath of fresh air. Yesterday however, it started raining and it has been chilly and dreary ever since. I decided to pull a few of my bright spring favorites out of my makeup bag to keep the spring feeling despite the weather! Do you need a spring beauty pick me up?? Read on to learn more about these beautiful bright and happy products!
Oh how I love MAC. I suppose that I may be a little bit partial because when I was first trained in makeup artistry, I learned with MAC products. Even after all these years, there are still many MAC products that I prefer to any other brand of makeup. I love how affordable it is, even as a high end makeup brand, and that their products are highly pigmented and basically last forever. I also love that they are a company that gives back with the MAC AIDS Fund and their Back-To-MAC program. Did you know that you can return 6 empty MAC makeup containers and they will give you a lipstick for FREE? It’s amazing! You know what else is amazing? Giveaways! Make sure to read to the bottom of this post for information on how you can win one palette for you and one for your bestie!
Is it just me or are you really sick of winter too? I am from Utah, and it has been DUMPING snow here for the past few days, or months really. Don’t get me wrong, I love living in a place where I can enjoy all four seasons, but snow is for Christmas. And then it should go away. It probably has something to do with the fact that I am a mom and there are far fewer activities that I can do with the kids during the winter. Also, it’s cold and I fall almost every day walking from my door to the end of the driveway to get Veda off the bus. Not cool! We are getting cabin fever up in here!
I just found the most incredible deal on MAC Brush Kits! Honestly, I’m dying over it! Every holiday season MAC comes out with special edition makeup and brush kits and this year was the Nutcracker Sweet Collection. I love their holiday brush kits because you get a killer deal on a collection of must have brushes. When the Nutcracker Sweet Brush Kits came out, I died. The packaging is SO cute and totally universal. As in, they totally don’t look like a special edition holiday set. There are 3 different kits so you have lots of brush combination options!
