My beauty resolutions for 2016

The 6 habits I need to make or break in my beauty routine

Ok, ok, I should have got this post out a month ago, but life happened. So, without further delay, here are the bad beauty habits I aim to break this year…

2016 beauty

  1. Experiment more with eyeshadow. Thanks to Instagram, I no longer relate eyeshadow to my 13-year-old self, who would just love any excuse to wear her purple sparky eyeshadow. Now that I have a better idea of makeup, I really want to start playing around with colour again and upping my smoky eye game.
  2. Moisturise body more. When you get out of the shower and it’s 30 degrees, you really don’t want to rub moisturiser all over you as it’s like a full body workout and you either need to shower again once you’re done, or stand in front of fan to allow the stuff to sink in. However, the heat here in Perth kinda makes it a necessity, so I’ll have to find a light, rapid absorbing one.
  3. Brush scalp every day. This basic tip is one of the many hair growth secrets I lerned in my interview with hair goddess Naomi Panizza. Must. Do. Daily!
  4. Cleanse in the morning. Call me gross, but I don’t wash my face in the morning. There, I said it! My skin doesn’t look like it needs an extra wash, and I take my makeup off every night without fail, but I’ll give it a try and see if it makes a difference to my skin.
  5. Stop biting nails. Okay I do make this resolution every year, but I’ve gradually been getting better over the years – I can scratch 90% of the time now! I only want to grow them to just the ends of my fingers (no Kylie Jenner mani here), because if they get longer I pick them or they split as they’re so weak. I’m going to try a regular shellac mani and see if a salon job I’ve paid for will be a bigger incentive to keep them out of my mouth!
  6. Try more Perth/Australian brands. I love meeting Perth creatives (as you’ll see on my Local Love page) and discovering Australian brands, so I’m going to focus on Aussie brands more than I did last year. So if you know a great one, let me know!

Have you made any resolutions for 2016?
