My Beauty Blog Resolutions for 2016!

Wednesday, December 30, 2015






Looking Back

2015 was a remarkable year. I tried filling in some order in my absolute boring blog, makeup and skincare routine. I started off with few and easy things such as organising my vanity every weekend, experimenting with hair, advanced into adhering to a makeup removal routine and, most importantly, buying all cruelty-free (except for Chanel and MAC, damn I want Guerlain #260 Jardin De Bagatelle too).
My cruelty-free pledge still stands steadfast and unshaken. And as I was determined, I flipped the 90% non-cruelty-free makeup to 90% cruelty-free. I see this as a minor achievement. Besides, I accomplished all my personal resolutions for 2015.

My makeup, beauty and blog resolutions for 2016:


Blog more

I have no planned posts as of yet. But in 2016, I am going to experiment with makeup more—my favourite literary characters, celebrity inspired or somethings on similar lines things. I am going to lay down my basic routines and techniques and try something else, and there is a special-themed post I am planning to post every month. I will try my best to pour in more creativity here in 2016. I am experimenting with photography again, still need to master a few things.

Beauty journals

Growing up, I made scrapbooks by reusing my old notebooks and diaries. I would jot down or stick in tips and inspiring articles from magazines and newspapers. Somehow, deep down I could connect both—scrapbooking and bloggingthese things. So, maintaining a hand-written diary to list down my blog posts, routines and changes in my skin is my way to channel my plans. I did maintain one for 2015 which had my huge wish list and my skincare routines from the first half of 2015. I lost the journal, and the posts never went live even though I had saved them as drafts.

Experiments

I am basic, minimal, essential kind of person when it comes to clothing. I am setting up my wardrobe, experimenting with colours and... SATC back-to-back for inspirations, oh! How I love Carrie and Mr Big. 😏

No Makeup Purchase for 2016

I over spent by letting myself free a bit too much. I am $20 away from attaining my Sephora VIB status. I misplaced my Hourglass Ambient Powders. I want to try swapping my favourite non-cruelty-free makeup with cruelty-free makeup. Finding cruelty-free equivalents for my favourites, sounds like an adventure!

Finding my contouring/bronzing essential

I was in two minds whether to get Anastasia Beverly Hills Original Contour Palette, but I read Kat Von D is better and blends seamlessly. I didn't wanted NYX contour palette. So I gave up and didn't bother to purchase any. I will keep looking, for that perfect mid-tone brown with slightly greyish undertone, till then I will mix and create with what I already have.

100 posts in 365 days

I am setting up my bar high. I blogged exclusively for the days I would need an escape from reality. Through 2015 things were changing and I sought solace in blogging. I attended events and met some non-beauty/makeup bloggers. Things have changed, I am assuming I'll get cold feet, like always!

More skincare than makeup

I am going to invest more in skincare than makeup. Recently, I attended an event bare faced with almost just sunblock. It is a big thing, especially when I don't step out without makeup. I escaped my seasonal acne cycle, I am in love with my skin right now. I'm assuming I am going back to my no-foundation phase. I no longer feel the need to conceal my imperfections.

Another year, definitely I am ending something or beginning something.
