Things that Make Me Happy about Spring

Ah, Spring is officially here! The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and I am wheezing!

No really, Spring is my worst season of the year in terms of allergies and asthma. Hold your inhalers in the air if you feel me on this one.

Pre-kids I enjoyed Winter because I didn’t mind being alone and inside all of the time. Post-kids I am itching for Spring to be here so we can get the hell outside before we start ripping each others hair out.
So, today I just want to share some pretty pictures and things about what makes me happy about Spring.

1. Glosses. I don’t know what it is about Spring and Summer, but I am all about glosses during these seasons. Anyone else like that? I think it’s because I am out and about a lot and lip gloss is just easier, yet it has the power to pull a look together. I don’t have to sit and line my lips and conceal for 5 minutes like I do with most lipsticks. I plan on giving my butter and elixir glosses some love this Spring. I’m trying to use what I have and buy less. Key word: trying.

2. Bright Cheeks! Honestly, I rock a bright cheek all year around, but Spring is when I actually love to play with pinks and corals. Some of my favorites are the City Color Cosmetics blush quad, the Rose duo from BH Cosmetics, and Pearlescent Pink by Wet n Wild. Are you all seeing my obsession with roses and all things rose related yet?

3. Dewy Skin. My skin is less dry in Spring so I can actually make my skin look a little dewy and glowy! It excites me, don’t judge me. I love the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum and the Loreal Magic Lumi I am trying to use up because I actually like the Bourjois one more. The Bourjois healthy mix serum gives me of a satin matte finish, and it smells so much better.

4. More skin fun. It’s apparent at this point that I am the shade of paper. I used to try to tan and such, but as of 5 years ago I decided to stop it all together and be okay with my skin color. I do sun protect even on cloudy, rainy days in the Spring and Summer. I love this Yes To lotion because it’s thick and doesn’t break me out, and it has spf 30. I’ve also been loving the Pixi glow mist underneath and on top of my makeup. It gives a very healthy glow and feels nice on my skin. My only beef is the sprayer moves a lot and I’m clumsy and miss my face sometimes, thus wasting product.

5. Bright(ish) nails! Raspberries and neutrals and sometimes lavender is about as adventurous as I get with my nails. You’re judging me, aren’t you? I like my box. My box is safe. My box is gray and cold. Some of my favorite nail polish brands include elf, essie, and wet n wild.

6. Spring Cleaning and rediscoveries! I really need to go through my palettes and rotate them out and dust a few off and show them some love. I have been trying out so many new products that I have kind of pushed aside some other goodies that I truly do love, namely my Naked palette. I used to use that precious palette everyday. Everyday. Now, with every other neutral palette in existence I haven’t shown the original heartbreaker any of my attention.

Gah, I talk about palettes like they’re children. Maybe I should rotate my children out too and clean them…

Kidding, y’all.
I need to also give my Dark Rose palette some attention because I truly do love it, and I think it may become a staple for me for Spring looks for that “pop of color.” The colors in this palette work together in weird and mysterious ways. I need to unlock it’s magic.

There I go again about palettes…

Anyway those are some things that make me happy about Spring, beauty wise. Life wise I can’t wait to get out and take both my daughters to parks and hear their giggles. I also need to do a huge de-clutter in my life and around my house and just get rid of things.
What are some things that make you happy about Spring, if anything?

Favorites Friday

Hello, beauties! Another week, another favorites post! It’s also Friday the 13th! I love these unlucky days filled with superstition, and I know I’m not the only one. My inner wolf queen and moon child loves it!
Let me begin with one favorite that doesn’t have a picture…I bought my own domain! That’s right, instead of the weird self-named blog vibe, I now have my own “brand.” My site is lunafayebeauty.com, and I made some changes to the appearance as well so it would look cleaner.

1. Yes, I understand that a sticker is a weird thing to consider a favorite, but hear me out. This little cutie was attached to a jewelry order, and it instantly made me happy. Fun fact: I used to own a few guinea pigs in high school. I loved those little squeakers. If I had the room for one, I would get another in a heartbeat. There’s something so cute and lovable about guinea pigs. So, seeing this little sticker made me feel happy and brought back nice memories.

2. On my face– I picked up one of the new Wet n Wild palettes from their Silver Lake collection, and I love it! Pinks are not my thing, but I’m really trying to venture out and get out of my comfort zone. Wet n Wild’s palettes can be kind of hit and miss, but every shade in the “thrift store chic” palette works well with minimal fallout. I love the name…”thrift store chic” is literally my style.

On my cheeks has been “Prenup” by Colourpop. It’s such a beautiful everyday pink for me. I have a review with swatches coming soon, so I won’t spoil too much.

My go to lip color has been “Thalia” by Nyx. Very gorgeous mauve color. If you can get your hands on this, please do so. I already love the round case lipstick formula, and this color is to die for. I don’t know what it is about Spring, but I tend to reach for more creamy formulas and even wear gloss some days.

3. Accessory Favorites– Even though I have been playing with colors, I am still a Moon Child. I have been loving this collar by Salem Couture over cute graphic tees. It’s pretty apparent that I’m obsessed with roses, and this collar is just the all around perfect accessory. I also love laying necklaces, and I have been layering these two from Hell Kitten (shophellkitten on Etsy) all week.

4. Random Makeup Favorites– I have been trying to give some of my forgotten makeup some love, so I pulled my Milani Bella shadows out for a bit, and I forgot how much I love them for simple everyday looks. I like to use these when I am in too much of a hurry to think about makeup. I also ordered a glitter liner from BH Cosmetics in “synergy” and it’s magical. I’ve had this thing for glitter lately…I’m stuck on it. Or rather, it’s stuck on me. That could be my worst joke yet.

5. Pet Moment– People seem to like my cat. Sailor is the fluffiest and cutest jerk in the history of cats. Just kidding, she’s actually really sweet, but she’s a bit mischievous. I don’t even consider her a cat most days. When someone comes over she has to get right in their face and demands to be pet. Our husky doesn’t even do that until at least 5 minutes after someone arrives. She also weighs 20 lbs. She’s not fat, she’s fluffy…and well fed.

Those were my favorites for the week! What have you been loving this week?
