beauty resolutions


Wash my makeup brushes regularly: This seems to be one of the most popular blogger beauty resolutions but I admit I'm guilty of being lazy when it comes to brush cleaning, I find it such a chore! I'm going to dedicate more time to ensuring I clean my makeup brushes. My aim is to wash them at least once a week but I'm also going to invest in the MAC brush cleaner so I can spot clean them after I use them too!

Have more foundation free days: I only wear makeup on days that I know I will be out all day so I already do have quite a few makeup free days but I'd like to start just using concealer on blemishes & my under eye circles rather than applying foundation as well. I want my skin to be able to breathe more basically!

Don't be as lazy with skincare: I'm guilty of sleeping in my makeup the odd few nights a month but I'm going to make a real effort to ensure I remove every scrap off my face before my head hits the pillow each night! I've got some lovely little bits of skincare which I need to use more often, now I've established a routine lets hope I stick to it!

Continue to experiment with eyeshadow looks: Towards the end of 2013 I started becoming more confident with creating smokey eye looks. I added the Urban Decay Naked Palette, a MAC 217 blending brush & couple of MAC eyeshadows to my makeup collection which have really helped to improve my eyeshadow skills! The best thing I ever did was invest in the 217 MAC brush, even an eyeshadow noob like me can create some pretty decent smokey eye looks since this tool joined my brush pot!

Do you have any beauty resolutions for 2014?

  1. I'm with you on cleaning brushes and not being lazy with skincare! It sounds awful, but I just don't like to get my face wet at night. Wet sleeves and hair, ugh!

  5. Totally agree with more foundation free days. I definitely don't need it every day and I think I'm just getting too used to it.

  8. Laziness is my biggest sin when it comes to beauty and skincare - I am terrible about going to bed in makeup! I didn't make any beauty resolutions this year, but maybe I'll add your number three to my resolutions list! :)

  11. Washing makeup brushes is my downfall! I'm going to do them today now I've read this and start as I mean to go on. I agree with the eyeshadow thing aswell, I need to step out of my comfort zone so I'll definitely keep an eye out for the 217 brush xx
