My 2009 Beauty Resolutions

Happy new year, fellow beauty chicks! Did you have a fabulous New Years Eve? I went out with my roommate to our neighborhood bar and celebrated with our all-time fave bartenders. (Check out a pic of my roomie and me at the top!) I hope you had a wonderful time and wish you all the best for the coming year!

And now that 2009 is here, it's time to make my beauty resolutions for the year! Check out what I'm aiming to do and try in 2009 after the jump!

1) Wear makeup on a more regular basis. I'm guilty of owning so many eyeshadows, lipglosses and the like that my bins and drawers are always on constant overflow ... but more often than not I'm too lazy even to swipe on a bit of mascara before I leave the house! I'm aiming to wear it at least three days out of five per week!

2) Find a good skincare routine and stick to it. This includes cleanser, toner, moisturizer and eye cream. And while I have some of those products nailed down, I'm going to try a bunch of cleansers and toners especially -- because I want to keep my skin looking as youthful as possible!

3) Experiment! Whether I'm trying yellow nail polish or sparkly purple eyeshadow, I want to have more fun with my look. Recent additions include deep pewter cream shadow and yellow gold nail polish -- who knows what 2009 will bring!

4) Continue to use Urban Decay Primer Potion. THIS STUFF IS A GODSEND. It keeps my makeup in place for up to two days (because, oops, I get lazy sometimes and don't wash it off as soon as I should!). Cream, powder, glitter ... it just doesn't budge when I use UDPP! So I'm definitely planning on stocking up and making sure to use it each and every time I sweep on that shadow.

5) Drink more water. The secret to glowing, gorgeous skin is so easy -- and yet I find it so difficult! I just get so bored drinking water all the time, but I know I need to start. So here come the 6-8 glasses a day that I know I need to look and feel beautiful inside and out!

What are your beauty resolutions for this year? Let me know in the comments!


  1. You are too cute! Love the pic and the resolutions! Happy new Year!

  2. Love the NYE pic!

    A couple of my beauty resolutions are: wash my face before I go to sleep (this one's been on my list more than once, yikes!) and wear fake eyelashes at least once a week!

    Happy New Year, Beauty Chick!
