Beauty Goals For 20163:00 PM
Stop sleeping in my makeup
This is a huge one for me, and probably the root cause of all my skincare issues! Sometimes I’m far too exhausted or far too ‘refreshed’ to remember to take off my makeup before bed, and I wake up looking like a panda with gunk in my eyes and clogged up pores all night. Ugh. It’s a terrible habit to have, and although it isn’t every night, I get noticeably more spots and skin problems when I’ve been too lazy to remember! I’m equipped with makeup wipes and micellar water, and from now on, there’ll be no more gross sleeping in my full face of makeup!
Discover at least three new brands I love
By ‘discover’, I actually mean own. I know of loads and loads of brands I’d love to try. At the moment, they’re Charlotte Tillbury, the balm and Anastasia Beverley Hills. I’ve had my beady eye on a few of their products for a while now, but 2016 is the year to actually get my paws on them and try them out for myself. I’ve done a lot of sticking to the same, comfy brands I’m familiar with, so now it’s time to treat myself and step away from my comfort zone, and maybe even find a new holy grail product or two?
Stick to a skincare routine
Although I adore my La Roche Posay Effalcar 3-step anti blemish system, it is a slight chore for me to remember to do it every night. I spend a lot of time at my boyfriend’s too, so carting around three bottle of lotions and potions isn’t all that easy when I’m on the move. Sometimes, my skincare routine is simply ‘wake up, have skin, get in bed’, but that’s not good enough for my oily skin which clearly needs a little bit more daily care. Time to devise an easy on-the-go skincare routine which will cleanse and nourish my face before bed each night, and stick to it!
Wash my makeup brushes more
I know I’m relating to half the beauty blogging community when I say this, but washing makeup brushes is the world’s biggest hassle. Especially when you’ve got a collection of over 40 brushes.I’d love to invest in one of those soap bars for makeup brushes, which apparently halves the time it takes to clean your makeup brushes. I’m well aware of the bacteria and general ickiness which lives in your makeup brushes after a few weeks of not washing them, so I’m going to stick to a fortnightly routine and force myself to do it!
Conquer false eyelashes!
Having tried (and failed) in the past to wear false eyelashes, this is something I’d love to revisit and have another go at. I think falsies look absolutely lovely and fluttery and can change a makeup look completely. Especially for special occasions, I think false eyelashes are so glam and pretty. Perhaps not for everyday wear, but even so, I’d love to be able to confidently stick a pair on to feel extra beautiful!
