I bet you forgot to make your Beauty Resolutions! Here are my Beauty resolutions for 2017. They should be easy enough for me to keep! I forget to wear sunscreen on snowy, grey days in the winter (or rainy days). I also don’t put it on when I know I will be in the house all day. (probably not a good idea!)
ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN – every day, even in cloudy weather!
NEVER, EVER,EVER,NO NEVER GO TO BED WITH YOUR MAKEUP ON ! There is nothing worse than going to bed with makeup on and not washing away the day’s impurities! The thought of getting makeup all over my pillow is my incentive to wash it all off! Plus, I have my nighttime skincare rituals I like doing, so this one is easy for me.
Washing your face before you go to bed prevents clogged pores, and acne.
DRINKING WATER IS A GOOD THING! I drink, a lot of water at night. In the day I drink Green iced tea, does that count? It has a lot of antioxidants in it (which is a good thing too)
CLEAN OUT YOUR MAKEUP ONCE A MONTH – a rule of thumb is the creamier and wetter the product is, the shorter it’s shelf life. Toss mascara after 3 months and liquid eyeliner after 6 months. Foundation, concealer, cream blush, and lip liners are good for a year. Powder blush, foundation, bronzers, and eye shadows are good for 18 months. I am so bad at this, I hate to get rid of anything!
Once You Clean Out Your Makeup, it is time to organize it. Translucent containers store makeup and you can see it for easy access.
Organize your makeup drawers with dividers
WASH YOUR MAKEUP BRUSHES-it is important to keep them clean regularly, to wash the dirt and grime away. I am guilty of not doing this frequently. So I am going to really try this year.
Your complexion will thank you. Your pores will stay clear and your complexion will glow.
KEEP YOUR SKIN RADIANT THROUGHOUT THE WINTER MONTHS USING ENRICHED SERUMS AND CREAMS WITH VITAMINS AND ANTIOXIDANTS THAT WILL CAUSE SKIN TO BE LUMINOUS! This I do, I am pretty good when it concerns my skin. I am always trying something to make my skin radiant , glowing, and to fight aging.
STEP OUT OF YOUR BEAUTY COMFORT ONE!
Expand your beauty horizons. Try New Products! This is never a problem for me. My niece and I even have worn blue lipstick!
Try New Looks!
If a full red lip is too much for you all at once, start out slowly. Dab a touch of red onto your lips and blend with your finger. Gradually you can build up the color as you get more comfortable with the look. And you will, because all women look great with red lipstick!
Try different looks altogether!
Make your beauty resolutions fun. Pamper Yourself this year!
Another Resolution – Wear the makeup you already have!
And Stop Compulsive Shopping! (never happen)!
Try a Subscription Box, where you will get a box delivered once a month with makeup and skincare items-5- to learn about and try different makeup, and skincare products. I receive the Birch Box (click here), and the Ipsy Bag(click here). For my review of Birchbox vs. Ipsy subscriptions, click here. I haven’t stopped the boxes, so I must get something out of them.
I know 92% of these Resolutions will be more difficult to keep than the 8% that I already keep. So I am going to give it my best shot! How about You? What are your Beauty Resolutions for 2017?
You Are Awesome!
