A New Year! A new me …
Okay, let’s accept it. 2014 is just three days shy away to an end and a New Year replaces the old. So, since each year, I have to make a New Year resolution, this year is non-exceptional except I’ll have to include beauty resolution too. Anyways, the list is a scroll long but I’m just going to share 5 of my top beauty resolutions for the New Year!
So, here goes nothing: (giggling!!!)
No 1 – I WILL detox my makeup bag and tools.
Okay, this is embarrassing but I’m a makeup hoarders and really have lots of makeup products that’s just sitting there to be tossed out. I don’t use makeup that past it’s expiry date but keep it because of its cute packaging. Oops! And since I started blogging, my makeup stuff has been piling up pretty fast. It’s recommended to toss makeup that is 1 year old and for mascara 4 months old. And honestly, when was the lat time you washed your brushes? We’re not talking just about cleanliness but it seems that brushes that aren’t wash regularly won’t be able to perform as well probably due to the oil and built-up makeup.
No 2 – I WILL dare to wear.
Honestly, I’m not really a hot pink lady kind of person but I intend to change with the start of the new year by wearing neon nail polish and lavish false lashes. The trick is to simply spot a splash of color that you usually shy away and try it on to bring new confidence and transform a tired look completely.
No 3 – I WILL wear SPF everyday.
We all know that SPF is important and regular usage is essential so since it’s winter here for me, even though the sun is not as strong, I should take the effort to at least wear a SPF 15 daily moisturizer when outside. In fact, it should be worn the whole year round! UVA rays are responsible for ageing and damage skin.
No 4 – I WILL massage.
Top facialist sworn by facial massage. So, there must be some truth in it that it’s crucial to easily slot sometime to do a face massage in our daily beauty routine. I was told to use a light facial oil and massage them from neck and work upwards in a circular motion to cheekbones, nose, around the eyes and forehead. I used to do this facial massage for my husband and he loves it. Said to help him relax. Dang! I’m feeling so tired right now that I need one facial massage before hitting the sack (zzzzzZZZZZZZZ)
No 5 – I WILL curl my lashes.
We heard a lot from top makeup artist that suggest and some insist that we need to curl our lashes before heading out. It’s a makeup must-do for all beauties! It’s only going to take a simple 30 seconds to curl the lashes and you’ll be left with a doe eyes even Bambi will envy. The secret is to choose a good curler with padded cushion to protect the lashes.
So, that’s all on my New Year resolutions and if you have any that you like to add on my list, please feel free to leave comment below what your beauty resolution this year? I’m anxious to hear.
Thank you for reading and Happy New Year!
