2014 Beauty Resolutions

    This is the first year in a while that I’ve decided to actually write out resolutions. I realize that writing them out helps keep me accountable, and further inspires me to stick with them. I have a few resolutions that pertain to beauty, and thought I would share them, and hopefully you can share yours with me as well!

    1. Keep my makeup collection more organized. I’ve recently switched up my makeup storage (more on that later), and I want to make sure that everything has a place.

    2. Be more diligent about washing my brushes. I have to admit, I’ve slacked on making it a point to wash my brushes at least once a week. Since my skin has been acting up lately, I really want to be sure it’s not because I’m brushing old sebum back onto my face (gag). So I will be sure to set aside a specific day to wash my brushes every week.

    3. Finish beauty products before buying more. When I got new makeup storage, I ended up throwing out a lot of products that were lightly used but way past their prime. It’s not even that I didn’t like the makeup! Some of them were high-end products that I didn’t want to use up too quickly (and so… they expired with a lot of product still left… brilliant, Miranda.) If I own a product, I’m gonna use it, dammit!

    4. Do more DIY beauty projects. Do it yourself projects are not only fun, but can also save you a lot of money on beauty products, storage, and tools alike! I’d love to bring you guys more DIY beauty posts and videos!

    5. Step out of my comfort zone. I’ve been riding the neutrals train for a while now, even though I used to pull such bold eyeshadow looks back in high school! My recent BFTE purchase has inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and start experimenting with more creative and bold looks this year. Even if I don’t wear them out in public, I want to expand my makeup “repertoire” I suppose you could say!

    2013 has actually been a very fruitful year for me. I started working at a job I love, I have committed myself to this blog and have grown it exponentially, and I finished the school semester strong with a 4.0! I can only hope 2014 treats me as well, and you too!

    What are some of your resolutions for the new year, beauty or otherwise?


    1. Great resolutions! My beauty resolution is to stop straightening my hair so often because I want it to grow LONGGG! πŸ™‚ Happy New Year!

    2. Great list and it’s obvious you put a lot of thought in it. I wish I could include use something up before buying new but I know it would be impossible.

    3. I need to keep my collection more organized… and I need to really start keeping up with things I buy that I promise I will review but never get around to it – I fail with that πŸ˜€ Happy new year!

    4. Those are good resolutions. πŸ™‚

      I don’t make resolutions. But if I did, I would say, save for higher end makeup and buy less drugstore. Not because drugstore is “bad” but because I want to acquire more mid tier and higher end stuff, now. πŸ™‚

    5. I clean my brushes every Sunday.. but now that I’m getting more and more brushes (small addiction) it’s getting harder to make myself clean them all! And I feel ya on the using up products. I used to save ‘special’ things in my life – make up, my ‘best’ china, etc. Now I know – enjoy using what you love! Use your good china whenever you want, and I use my expensive, fave mascara every day.

    6. Lol I just posted mine as well! At the head of the list is sleeping for at least eight hours a day, so the dryness will finally go away, and to go on a 60-day shopping ban from tomorrow and moisturise all over except when I’m ill.

    7. Great resolutions. I need to organize my makeup better. I don’t plan on doing it until we move, which will hopefully be in February. Thanky ou for being one of my top commenters πŸ™‚

    8. I’m also hoping to start using up more products before buying new ones. I had to throw away a lot of lightly swatched cosmetics when I moved earlier this year, because I simply forgot about them πŸ™ What a waste!
