  1. This year my beauty-related resolution is to not be lazy about shaving my legs.

  2. Nicole

    Yes, I don’t want to buy so much beauty stuff like last year.

  3. Drink much more water and less soda… lol

  4. swap more and buy less :)

  5. jess

    Take better care of myself in general…I really got unhealthy this year (eating out a lot, not working out as much as I used to, being really stressed) and I’d like to undo all of that.

  6. Anitacska

    Lose weight. Other than that, buy less make up. :)

  7. Teresa

    Last year my resolution was to find a skin regimen that kept my skin acne free, protected from the sun, and hydrated. I DID IT!! (Philosophy Purity Made simple and Eucerin face moisturizer with SPF 30!, Neutrogena spot treatment for occasional blemishes).

    This year, my resolution is to keep up with bikini waxing. I had a horrible first experience, and last week I went again. It couldn’t have gone better! I want to go again in 4-6 weeks and keep it up (as long as I can afford it!)

  8. cloudburst

    Get more sleep, eat more veggies & buy less makeup!

  9. Tina

    Of course!

    Buy less makeup…use what I have already!
    Drink more water!
    Gain 10-15lbs!

  10. Vee

    Lose the chub, whiten my teeth, eat better, make wiser makeup choices and stop buying colours since they’re “pretty”!

  11. love

    Spend less on makeup, and only buy things I need

  12. Kathleen

    This year I definitely want to

    1. Learn more advanced techniques on makeup applications.
    2 Make better choices on purchasing makeup brushes because in the past I always wanted to save money by buying cheaper brushes but they are not doing the job so I ended up buying more cheap brushes….wasted alot of money
    3. Ensure that I do not try to buy cheap drug store brand skin care products such as Neutrogena….I recently became allergic to some of the ingredients in the products and ended up having a pizza face for two weeks.
    4. Spend less on eyeshadows….I swear I have over 200 of them. I need to stop

  13. Hillary

    use what i have.
    only buy MAC blushes and brushes. (unless a white paintpot/paint/shadestick comes along. then buy 585298503 :D)

  14. Tami

    Trying not to splurge on makeup that I will wind up not using or using very minimally:)

  15. Milan

    I resolved to really start treating my nails better. To do weekly manicures and keep them polished and looking nice! So far so good…LOL!

  16. Ebony

    I pledged to perfect my blending and explore more colorful looks

  17. Ivy

    My resolution is to go on a 2 year no buy (with the exception of mascara since it has to be tossed every 3 months). I am going to use what I have and buy nothing until 01-01-11. By then it will be time to toss my old shadows and blush. Basically, I will only use what’s in my current collection and acquire no new makeup.

    Do a 3 month cycle of Nutrilash and grow my brows thicker and get some bigger lashes.
    Find a spf 30 or higher for the body since I’m already really good about wearing spf on the face every day.
    Grow out my bangs.
    More massages, pedicures and facials.
    Get another makeup case for freelance work, a couple of directors chairs, a small table and some good portable lighting.
    Continue stocking my freelance kit.
    Get some laser hair removal.
    Cut down a little on the caffeine.

    last year, i got committed to washing my face every single nite. no fail. i stuck to it bc i was engaged and the wedding was in November.

    thankfully, its a fully engrained habit now. even when i’m mindlessly sleepy, i still brush my teeth AND wash off my makeup.

    this year, my goal is to keep up my daily appearance. shave regularly, put on makeup daily, keep my nails looking nice.

    now that i’m married, i dont want to “give up”, know what i mean?

    I also want to tackle false eyelashes.
