Hi Everyone! I’m so happy to be guest posting today. My name is Rebekah and I blog over at Lipstick & Lullabies. The CBB guest post theme for this month is Beauty New Years Resolutions. When I first read it, I thought it would be a super easy post to write… the more I thought about it though, the harder it got! I did manage to think of 10 beauty goals for 2015. Let’s take a look!
1. Remove makeup nightly
This is a given. Typically I’m pretty good at doing it, but lately there have been some long days and I just crawl in to bed, makeup and all.
2. Drink more water
Also a given. Drinking more water means less pop, which means clearer skin and a lower BMI.
3. Master my palettes
I have accumulated a lot of makeup over the past 2 years. And with each of my palette’s I typically have 1, maybe 2, go to looks. I want to expand that… use all the shades!
I never remember sunscreen, and I always end up with at least 1 burn each summer. This year I will try harder to put it on!
5. Wash those brushes
Another thing I’m typically quite good at, but lately I’ve been slipping – I need to find time every weekend to wash them, and I need to pick up a spray brush cleaner to use daily!
6. Anti-aging products
My fine lines aren’t really noticeable to others, but they are to me and I want to delay them getting any worse. My laugh lines bother me the most, especially if my makeup settles in them.
7. More lipstick
I always reach for gloss, but I love how finished I feel with lipstick on. I’m also determined to break my bad habit of swatching and forgetting, or just not wearing it out because I don’t feel confident enough.
My skin gets so ridiculously dry in the winter, so if I don’t moisturize my skin gets itchy, and then I scratch during the night and damage my skin.
9. Reach for cruelty free
I know I’ll never have only cruelty free products, but I want to make an effort to buy it whenever it’s an option so I will be keeping an eye out for this bunny.
10. Accept my flaws
My eyes aren’t even (one is more hooded than the other) I have Melasma (pregnancy mask) and my eyebrows grow funny…. But that’s okay.
If I manage to even stick to half of those I will be quite happy ♥ Do you have any beauty resolutions for this year?
