Do You Make New Year's Beauty Resolutions?

2010 will be upon us in just a few days, and with it we'll say hello to a new decade that's sure to be full of just as many beauty innovations as this one was. To get things started off right, I'm resolving to take better care of my skin and to find (or invent, if I have to) an undereye concealer that really covers. I know I may not make too much leeway with either of my goals, but I think it's never bad to make guidelines for yourself. Structure is a good thing, especially when it comes to your skin's health. Do you make beauty resolutions for the new year? And if so, what are they going to be for 2010?

Oh and another beauty-related resolution: become a licensed MUA by spring!

I don't really do resolutions either HOWEVER, this year, I've been making it a point to use up my lotions, perfumes, creams, etc before buying new ones. I'm doing GREAT! So I think for 2010, I'm gonna expand to makeup. WAIT, hear me out!! LOL. I'm gonna aim for my glosses and blushes first. I very rarely buy blush, so I figure that'll be easy to cut through. And my gloss stash is a mini store. I buy expensive ones (MAC, SB, Stila), so it's good for my pocket if I try to use them up. I have colors that span the season, so I'm going to really make an effort to go thru my stash. I'm also changing my eating habits starting tomorrow. I cut out sweets a month ago, and it's hard, but it's been worth it, so I'm gonna keep it up. I want to get rid of that graduate school 15 by summer. lol HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!

I have a resolution that is for health, beauty and well being which is to start meditating regularly. It is actually for beauty because it can help slow the aging process.. less stress!

Thanks for all the suggestions ladies! I think my next move is going to be to cut down on dairy, and try to eliminate it. Sooooo hard though - cheese is practically my favorite thing ever!

Tisgirl have you gone to a dermatologist? Maybe going to a doctor can help you with your problem.

Tisgirl, try Obagi. My face has been clear ever since. It's expensive, but worth it. As for my resolutions: 1. Recycle my empty MAC shadows/powders to get a free lipstick 2. Buy a matte lipstick that lasts forever 3. Buy Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb

tlsgirl - have you ever tried modifying your diet? I know this doesn't appeal to a lot of people, but cutting out dairy and white sugar works wonders for acne. I was suffering from constant breakouts, then I quit dairy for a couple weeks and my skin cleared up completely. Then I ate a lot of dairy over the holidays, and it came back.

GlowingMoon - I actually did try Retin-A for a couple months. It was weird - worked great at first, then suddenly starting burning my skin and making it worse than before. Totally strange, I know.

Not a resolution gal. I believe if you need to change your lifestyle or whatever, do it today not the 1st of the year; that's a cop-out to me waiting for a certain time to do the right thing. Happy New Year and don't kiss any strangers :)

Tlsgirl, have you used Retin-A? I use that to manage my cystic acne, and it does a good job. I still get one or two pimples during PMS, but I'm willing to live with that, as it used to be MUCH worse.

biarose - I have literally tried all kinds of remedies. Everything from Clearasil to Accutane. The Accutane actually got rid of it for two years, but it just came back :( The worst part is that I have really fair skin that scars crazy easy.

Bella, have you ever tried Time Balm concealer by The Balm? I had two ladies in to my store today who had major under-eye circles, and I put Time Balm on them -- covered them amazingly! It's also really great for blemishes too. They were really happy with their purchase! My resolution would be to take better care of my skin, mostly by drinking tons of water, and not skipping my nightly routines. I've been a bit lazy lately and my chin is definitely paying for it!

It's not an official resolution, but I have been thinking of buying a new set of brushes - really good horse hair brushes and actually wash them (I never wash mine - I know; gross)...

tlsgirl- I feel so sorry for you! What have you tried?? I really hope you can find something that works.

Good for you MsTyque! I know how awful acne can be.. especially when your an adult and you think it should have gone away by now! Also I think your idea bringing lunch from home so you can afford more manicures is a really good idea. I've been splurging on better skin care products and just spending less on other things I don't find as important! I think often people think they can't afford a little luxury, but they don't realise that if they just cut out that daily Starbucks (or something like that) they could!

I plan on getting more mani/pedis instead of always doing my own nails. I will bring my (healthy-vegetable based)lunch from home at least twice a week to offset the cost of the manicures. Last year, I resolved to get rid of my adult acne- I splurged on microdermbrasion and simplified my skin care regimen- it worked!
chloe-bella chloe-bella 7 years
Yes! One of my resolutions is to never go to bed with my makeup on, no matter how tired I am. Bella - I have the WORST under eye circles, and I swear by the cheap Maybelline stick concealer. I've tried a lot of concealers, in all price ranges, and it's the only one I've found that actually works and stays on all day.

Bella, try Amazing Cosmetics' concealer. The pigmentation is amazing; I have permanent, serious, genetic raccoon dark circles, and it covers them perfectly (whereas nothing else at Sephora ever has). :) I don't have beauty resolutions, really. I guess, since I'm starting a new job soon, it's to wear a bit more makeup so that I look clean but also polished and put-together (I hardly wear any otherwise).

No, not really. I'd love to get rid of my ugly acne once and for all, but after trying pretty much everything, it's not something I have much control over.

What kind of resolution would you make? No more fake bake or going to bed with makeup on? I'm obsessive with taking care of my skin so that's out. Maybe to reduce my makeup stash - I have three tackle boxes worth, haha!
