The start of a new year is traditionally a time to re-evaluate and make positive changes to your lifestyle and daily habits. So when you’re thinking about making those important resolutions, don’t forget to include some changes to your makeup and beauty routine. Here are some easy adjustments you can start today to help you reach your goals in 2016.
1. Be Kind to the Environment
There are more beauty brands now more than ever before who have not only eliminated questionable ingredients from their products, but also recycle containers and utilize resourceable materials in manufacturing. Do some investigating (you can google anything!) and make sure to support and patronize these brands whenever possible.
2. Use Makeup Brushes and Wash Them Regularly
Okay ladies, it’s 2016… if you don’t know you better ask somebody! Using brushes to apply your makeup is the best way to get a flawless, natural and polished look. There are some great brushes available now to fit any budget. But make sure to clean them! Brush cleaner or your favorite facial cleanser will do the trick because they’re designed to break down and remove makeup, which works much more effectively than any shampoo for regular cleaning. Brushes used for creamy products like foundation and concealer should be washed daily, give all others a thorough cleansing once a week.
3. Follow a Trend
Whether its winged eye liner, false lashes, strobing or brightly colored hair, find beauty
trend you’d love to try this year. It can be as subtle or dramatic as you want, just step
outside of your comfort zone. Take it one trend at a time though, not all at once.
4. Find a Flattering Statement Lip
It can be a classic red or a sexy nude, but find an amazing lip color that complements your features and enhances your personal style.
5. Give Some Lip Service
Speaking of lips, make sure you take care of yours! Use a lip scrub or gentle face exfoliator to remove any dry, peeling skin and follow with a lip treatment or lip balm to moisturize and re-hydrate. The best ones now have a tint of color as well as sun protection.
Best wishes for a beautifully blessed and prosperous new year!
