Guest Post: Beauty New Years Resolutions


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!

4. Sunscreen

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?

    While I’m super pale year round thanks to my sunscreen addiction and sun aversion (I can thank melanoma that runs in my family for both), I’m not so great at the rest of these! I need to start washing my brushes and drinking SO much water!

    Great tips! One of my resolutions this year is to try to put on make up. I can do without it in the past and I think this is the best time for me to start looking and feeling good…

  • Lindsay

    You’ve got such a cute collection of brushes! If you need any help/recommendations for cruelty free products just let me know :) I am with you on drinking more water! I really need to stop drinking so much tea and replace that with plain water!

  • Jessica Angeles

    Moisturize is a big one for me! Love this post!

  • Lana @ The Truth About Blondes

    Such great goals! For me it’s moisturizing. I get such bad dry skin, my feet crack and I get eczema on my shins… I’m so bad at putting lotion on though… bleh.

  • Weekends With Winter

    First of all I love that pink rice! Secondly I think I have all of those beauty resolutions as well, I’m so bad with getting into a routine so I think that’s one of the things working against me. Thanks for showing me that I’m not the only one with these problems,
