It’s the New Year and of course with all the usual resolutions, goals and expectations, I’m also setting some beauty goals for the year ahead. These are small changes but ones that I am excited about working on during 2013.
- Wear red lipstick. I’ve been attempting to ease into this for a couple years now. For someone who rarely wears anything on her lips, other than the occasional swipe of chapstick, this is more difficult than one would expect. To me, every time I put on lipstick I feel like a 5-year-old kid who just got into her mother’s lipstick collection. She knows the red color goes on her lips, but it always seems to go a little awry. I’m getting better at it and hopefully soon I’ll no longer hesitate in the morning.
- Grow my hair out! I know, I know, I say this ALL the time. But this is the year. No giving in to promotional haircuts for my favorite stylist (well now that there are a couple hundred miles between us that will also deter things a bit). No more getting fed up with the inbetween periods and lobbing it all off. No more pinning cute pixie cuts. I’m going to continue growing my hair out, and getting it trimmed only to give my haircut some structure. So, far it’s working. The below pics are from my hair in August and then at the New Year. (My hair grows fast. I had three haircuts in those five months.)
- Wash my face twice a day. I’ve gotten better over the years at washing my face every night. But it should be done twice a day, according to the experts. So I’m going to try and take better care of my skin during 2013.
- Drink more water. I will say I feel healthier and my skin looks better when I am drinking a good amount of water daily. Less coffee more water – that should be my mantra.
What about you? Are you setting any beauty goals for 2013?
