Beauty New Year Resolutions

Beauty New Year Resolutions

Resolutions let's face it very few remain unbroken by the end of January! Ever the optimist eh. I jest of course but in all honesty I am not a stickler for resolutions, I try my best but don't really get bogged down by them. With that in mind it will come of no surprise that I don't make all that many but I do resolve to obey the following...

1, Use More - Back in 2013 I was fairly vigilant when it come to shopping my stash i.e making use of products that I had somewhat forgotten about. Then along came 2014 and that went out the window, this year I am to use more of those lipsticks and palettes that have slid under the radar.

2, Don't Fear Colour - I love red lipstick and generally bright make-up on others but personally I have yet to find the confidence to slick on a bright lipstick and not feel self concious. I am taking baby steps to become comfortable with bold make-up and aim to apply a bright lipstick at least once a week.

3, Roots! - Oh lordy am I terrible for sporting five inch dark roots, it makes me feel scruffy and unkempt. Part of the problem if you can call it that is due to the fact my hair grows rather quickly and the other dilemma of sorts is that I hate going to the hairdressers. It is also expensive to have a whole head re-growth tinted every 6-8 weeks hence why I do put it off until someone asks me how long I have had ombre hair. I wish I was jesting. Hopefully this year I will be more inclined to sit in the salon chair more this year.

4, Spend Less - I am so frivolous when it comes to money, I am the type that earns a dollar but spends two. I can not walk past a make-up counter or stand without coming away with several items. It really is a bad habit. This year I aim to ask myself if I really need the item (for whatever reason) and if the answer is no, then I can't purchase it. Here is where I do say don't have too much faith in me haha!

5, Strip Back On Skin Care - Last night while grimacing at the state of my skin in the mirror I came to the fairly obvious conclusion that my constant chopping and changing of skin care can not be doing my skin any favours. I am still fairly young (I am in my twenties if curious) so I highly doubt that my skin needs all the lotions and potions I am prone to slapping on. Perhaps less is more after all?

Do you have any beauty resolutions? I'd love to read them!

  1. I know how you feel with the Skin Care! I used to put LOADS of products on thinking it would help, when really it did more damage, now I just stick three products (one in the morning and two at night) and my skin is a lot better for it!

    Good luck with your resolutions! :3 x

  3. I can totally relate with number 4, spending money I don't have really isn't a good idea! Good luck with all of your resolutions and I hope you have a good year!
    lots of love x

  4. I definitely relate to 2. 3. And 4. I have a bright red lipstick that I'm just too shy to wear for fear of looking ridiculous. This year I need to embrace more colour into my make up. Thanks for sharing, Wishing you a happy and healthy 2015. L x

  8. I know what you mean about skincare, however it's probably the changing around that's aggrivating it more than all those products! Anyway, good luck, all the best for 2015 x

  12. I think less is more skincare wise too, I'm hoping to find a few products that work and stick with them this year! xo

  13. I used to be the same with the root issue - now I've found a shade I love that I can do at home. My hair actually looks much better now too! x

  15. Lovely post.

    I hope that I will continue to do more in terms of my beauty blogging and provide more value to people.

    I also am hoping to buy more beauty products to review because there is so many good products out there that I am just learning about.

    All the best xox

  16. I'm with you on the shopping my stash thing! I have so much stuff I don't use, I'm going to try and not buy any make up until Easter. (Yikes!) Wish me luck, :)

  17. I must stop buying and start using. Each day I will use different products apart from my foundation. Rotation is my key word. I won't buy another nake up item until if thought about it a week and it unique to what I have.x

  18. My number one resolution is to wash my make-up brushes more often, its something I hate doing but it is something that just HAS to be done!

  19. I'm exactly the same when it comes to roots, it's just so boring having to do them regularly! But it makes such a difference so I must get better! Good luck :)

  21. Number 3 and 4 are two resolutions I could do with making, I'm currently sporting a couple of inches of dark roots and they're driving me mad haha. I just hate how long it takes to bleach though so I'm always putting it off.

  22. Great resolutions! I am the complete opposite when it comes to spending money. My friends call me Mr Krabs because I'm NOT a big spender, ha ha! So my resolution is to not be afraid to spend money and buy more stuff that I like :)

  23. I'll be using up products as well as my beauty resolution. I have a shameful amount of beauty products!

  24. I need to stop changing up my skincare so frequently too! I just love trying out new products but it really does make it difficult to work out what my skin doesn't agree with when it flares up.

  26. I'm guilty of all these as well! Especially the first one, I've bought way to many new products this last year while letting my other stuff go untouched :( If only makeup were good forever.

  29. Love the resolutions! I also have way too much makeup that's unused and yet I can't pass a makeup counter without buying things. I'm also uncomfortable in brighter shades of lipstick. I tend to stick to nudes even though I own a ton of bright colors and reds.

  30. You sound a lot like me and my beauty resolutions are very similar! And also I want to take better care of my hair in general, I use heat almost every day and constant coloring does a lot of damage too!

  31. I'm going to join you in the go bold or go home! I need to be more confident and this will be a good way! Lovely post!

  33. Shop my stash!! When I was busy buying new stuff my stash of unused and untried grew to ginormous proportions :O

  34. Yay you're back online! I totally agree with using up more stuff and being sensible with spending - I recently used up a ton of products in the last 2 months and wrote a big Empties post on them, but then proceeded to haul a ton of stuff in the post-Christmas sales - back to square one!
