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 😉 ) 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?
