Spring Brings New Life

Last week I got a new nephew! My husband and I have 12 nieces and nephews on his side of the family, but this is the first baby on my side of the Family. My brother and his wife gave birth to this cute little guy just since my last post. I am excited to have a new little in our family!

I also experimented with some curly hair this weekend. I want it to look like the picture that inspired the new do! I bought a cheapo travel size straightener and curler in one, but it was really difficult to curl with. So next time I think I will just stick with my Velcro curlers--even thought my husband calls me a grandma for wearing them to bed ;)
My Merry & Bright palette from Too Faced came last week! I first saw this at Christmas and I really wanted it, but it was $45 then and I felt guilty buying something for myself so I didn't get it and was hoping maybe I would get it for Christmas. Well I didn't get it for Christmas and it sold out so I just decided it wasn't meant to be. I was checking out their website a few weeks ago and saw that it was back and on sale for $25 so I had to get it!

I love all of the colors and the packaging is so pretty. I haven't experimented too much yet. My look below is following the weekend look from the Be Merry palette pictured above. I love the peachy keen blush. It has a slight gold shimmer to it! I also used the lash injection mascara, but I wasn't too thrilled with it. I always layer my mascaras so I used my go to Cover Girl lash blast volume mascara in the orange too over the top of it.

I am definitely a makeup amateur, but I'm having fun trying out new things!

Have a peach keen Tuesday!
