2018 Beauty Resolutions

Monday, January 22, 2018

I have been feeling a shift lately.

From Metaphysics to Astrophysics. I want to read non-fiction something that I never do, well except for theories.

Speaking of the shift, I don't feel like wearing makeup anymore. I received all my December makeup purchases from Cultbeauty in the first week of January. And ever since then, I am working on finishing up all the half-filled skincare containers. I want to keep what really works and I am switching back to being a minimalist. I experimented with layering skincare in the second half of 2017 and I am concluding that it does not work for me. So I already switched back to my simple skincare routine this time with acids.
I should be working on a current skincare routine post soon.

I am restricting buying Makeup for now but I deserve a CT Lipstick for Valentines! So many of the liquid lipsticks are still unopened. And none of my pan makeup even has a slight dent in it. And I don't feel like doing a full glam face anymore. [shifting lack of enthusiasm scares me]

Here are four things that I am resolute about:

Skincare: When I am focussing on the academics, I ignore everything else, I can't sleep nor eat. And this starts affecting the under eyes and hydration. I am hopefully going to adhere to a minimal skincare routine to keep dehydration and dryness at bay. Exfoliating with acids because scrubs break me out, sensitivity!

Long hair and bangs: I look at my pictures from college days and 2015; I want to ignore the consequences and get bangs. But I am growing my hair long and I don't know.

Red lipstick: I can wear soft wing eyeliner and red lipstick all my life without being bored is an overstatement. But Red lipstick washes me out, *no amount of bronzer ever will paint the paleness* kind of paleness. And then my face, neck and chest turn out in three different colours. Well, I'll just admit I look like a clown.whatever.

Painting my nails: I always paint my nails either Red or Mint and if I am in a mood for something bright, I'd choose Neon Pink. Changing nail colours every 5 days is what I have on my mind atm. More colours! I mean.

I've never been a great blog post planner. I will let 2018 amaze me!
