Makeup Wars: Beauty Resolutions 2013

Beauty Resolutions 2013
In this edition of “Makeup Wars” we are spilling the beans on our Beauty Resolutions for 2013. Now, I know I talked about how I was going to “Be Better” this year, and that can be kind of vague and far-reaching when it comes to what it is. In this case, I am more or less specific in what particular things I want to tackle in regards to my beauty life. Such as:

1) Get organized. You might wonder how this is beauty related, well, it’s simple. If I don’t know what I have, I can’t find it and enjoy it. *shrug* I’m ridiculous. I have just set up my product room in the last couple of months and have yet to have a process that is more than “everything now just goes in this room instead of all over the house”. I want to improve that situation.

2) Find the perfect foundation. You’d think I would have found this by now, but I have been lazy and just sticking to my tinted moisturizers and bb creams. I want something that works with my cool undertones, but doesn’t mattify my warm freckles, covers up redness, but doesn’t make me feel like I am wearing a mask. That’s not too much to ask for, right?

3) Wear red lipstick more. After *years* of proclaiming that I could NEVER find a red lippie that worked on me, I found it last September. So, now that I have defied the odds and captured my hue, I need to make a point to wear it on a regular basis. (*I did wear it to a party this past weekend, so I may be on my way with this one!)

4) Improve my techniques. I love makeup artist how to books. Boy, do I love them. I have *many*, of which I have looked at the pictures, and even the instructions, but read them like cookbooks for meals I would never cook, instead sticking to my tried and true regular meals, and ways of doing things. So, this year, I want to actually *use* my books (*I hear there are these makeup “tutorial” videos on YouTube, too šŸ˜‰ ) and work on how I actually apply all of these wonderful colors I surround myself with on the daily. I do NOT want to be making all of the obscenely gorgeous, yet time consuming and ridiculously technical eye looks that you see on Pinterest. I just want to make my look feel like I spent more than the 5minutes on it that I usually do.

So, that’s what I am going to work on this year? What are you going to work on yourself?

And don’t forget to check out the resolutions for all of the other Makeup Wars lovelies, too:

  4. Get organized is the story of my life. I never have the time and when I do I don’t have the motivation!!

  5. Pammy Blogs Beauty says:

  7. CarleenPruessCoulter says:

    I need to wear more red lipstick too!!!!

  8. Teri Cosenzi says:

    I have been TRYING with not just red lipstick, but with brighter lippies in general. I put on a beautiful bright pink the other day before heading out and wiped it off (and slathered on my good old nude stand-by) as I was walking out the door. WHAT IS WRONG WITH US? I mean, it is nothing permanent. I think I will make this is a spring goal myself.

  9. I’m working on the foundation thing too, I just got a custom recipe for prescriptives, now I need to order it!

  10. Glad I got to meet you tonight at the Engage OKC event! I’m a new follower. :) Excited to pick up some beauty tips!
