My 2016 beauty resolutions!

I spoke about my new year's resolutions over on Snapchat last week, but wanted to dedicate a full blog post to my beauty resolutions.  Little goals I'm setting for myself in the hopes I make it past a week and a half before breaking them!

In 2016...

I will wear red lipstick outside of the house.
This has been a running theme for years now and something I've never done.  Yet.  I'll do it and it'll be the most documented thing that has ever happened to me in my life.  Or else you'll hear nothing about it if I find out I've been walking around with red lippie up my face and on my teeth.  I feel like I'd need a permanent mirror attached to my hand to keep it all in check.  Or maybe I can get Joanne to walk beside me looking at my face the whole time.  Yes, that seems like the best plan of action.

I will wash my brushes more often.
Why is this the most hated chore ever in life?  I don't know.  Actually, I do.  I make it hard on myself by refusing to wash brushes, only to buy more so I don't have to wash them, then run out of money and can't afford to buy new ones and am forced to clean 11,000 brushes.  Then I moan like it's the worst thing in the world when really, I do it to myself.  So while I won't bother setting a madser of a goal like washing the brushes every week, what if I make it every two weeks.  That's doable isn't it?

I will step outside of my comfort zone.
It's only when I'm filming that I really play with makeup, but I want to get more adventurous with it during the week.  That might mean getting up a bit earlier though which sounds very painful altogether, but it'll be good craic!  No way am I wearing a bright lip to work though or I'd have to sedate everyone, but maybe I'll use brighter colours on the eyes, or try some liner.  Sure we'll see!

I will stop picking my nail polish off.
It's a mortal sin, I know that.  And yet I cannot stop.  It is very pleasing to peel off one's nail polish in a single go and if you haven't tried it, you're missing out big time.  So don't be giving out to me before you've tried it.  I stopped wearing polish all the time last year because my nails were in bits, but 2016 is the year of the nail polish and I'm going to keep my nails in shape and stop the picking.  Why does something so bad feel so good?  Why???

I will finally, for once in my life, be brave with self tan.
There are so many good ones out there that even a dirty looking eejit like me can figure it out.  I generally stick to the gradual tanners as my inevitable mistakes are less obvious.  But I'd love to use the mousses and lotions and not be afraid of looking like the ultimate amateur.  I will master the application technique and make it a mission to try lots of tanning brands this year.  I basically want the first sentence that everyone says to me to be "Oh have you been away, sure you're looking well".

I will throw out all of of my old makeup.
I am a hoarder collector of makeup and like to keep things, just in case I need them for a future feature, to compare them to another product, and basically to look at.  The truth is, I want a Sephora in my own office so am like a lunatic.  My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to dump all old, out of date makeup.  This will be a time consuming and laborious task and one that will leave me literally covered in makeup as I swatch each and every item on the back of my hand or on my face.  I'll still keep things that are sentimental (yes, a person can have feelings for makeup, shut up) or that are collector's items, but for things that go off quickly, mainly cream products and lipsticks and glosses, I won't know myself with the amount of storage I'll have!  All the more room to fill it up with more stuff...

So what are your beauty resolutions?  Will I stick to these and achieve my goals?  Probably not, but God loves a trier!
