Well y’all…it’s time to hold my self accountable. And doing a blog post about beauty resolutions is the BEST way to do it. And when I screw up, I want you guys to let me know, mkay. That’s what beauty friends are for. Okay. Sooooo…here we go.
Clean my makeup brushes regularly.
I’m not even going to tell you how often I DON’T clean my brushes. You’ll judge me. And it would be okay because I’d judge me too. So yeah, I vow to rinse those brushes off more often.
Create a better makeup storage situation.
My makeup storage is all over the place. I’ve got my everyday products that I have in a crate in my bathroom and then I’ve got more stuff allllll over the place in my beauty room. My nail polishes are housed beautifully but everything else is all kinds of messed up. This is why I need The Container Store to hurry up and open here in Orlando. Fo reals.
Learn how to maintain my brows.
It’s a well known fact that I’m a low maintenance brow gal. Unapologetically so. I have no desire to invest 5-10 minutes drawing, filling in and sculpting my brows. I like them naturally crazy and bushy. BUT – let’s not pretend that great brows can transform a look. I need to find products that will help my brows look more polished while making sure they don’t look too drawn-on and stenciled.
Teach at least 3 beauty classes for pre-teens and teens.
…and not a “This is how you put on makeup class.” but I want to share with them the importance of taking care of their skin and how they really DON’T need makeup. And if they do want to wear makeup, I’ll suggest age-appropriate products and shades. I didn’t teach any beauty classes last year but did so quite frequently in 2011. Plus, I loooove community outreach.
Read more international beauty blogs and websites.
Beauty is universal and as an editor, I want to stay up on the latest and greatest worldwide. I read a few beauty blogs outside of the U.S., but I want to read and connect with more bloggers. And then I want to feature them on Clumps and be featured on their sites. It’s like beauty penpal-ing!
I could add a dozen more to the list but I do so much better with small monthly and quarterly goals, ya know? Do you have any beauty resolutions for the New Year? Buy more? Buy less? Tell meeeee! Oh, and in the meantime, check out the beauty resolutions of my fellow Makeup Wars sisters…
