10 Beauty Resolutions to Make (and Keep) in the New Year

If we hadn't said it already, happy New Year! We're well into January, but many of us have still not committed to a resolution (or resolutions). Do you fall into this category? Here are our top ten resolutions for a beautiful 2015:

    1. Schedule Regular Haircuts

    Always letting your layers grew out a bit too much? Constantly battling split ends? Make it a point to schedule regular haircuts (set them all at once!) and you’ll nip the issue in the bud.

    2. Get a Facial Each Month

    Sound extravagant? It isn’t! A monthly facial makes for healthy and happy skin. Look for a subscription spa and get on a regular routine.

    3. Exfoliate Weekly

    As the pros say, exfoliation is important to beautiful skin. Use an at-home exfoliator (or visit a dermatologist for a professional treatment) once a week.

    4. Focus on Brows

    Whether you perfect your arches with stencils from your beauty store or use tweezers at home, make sure you give your brows extra love this year.

    5. Take Care of Your Smile!

    It’s so easy to gloss over our teeth, but a healthy smile is crucial to that all-important first impression. Brush with a whitening toothpaste that’s also good for enamel.

    6. Experiment With Makeup Colors

    Who wants to wear the same old colors year after year? Time to shake things up. Take more risks from eye to lip color. Maybelline ExpertWear Eye Shadow Quads come in 14 varieties. Change your color rubric, even if only slightly. If you’ve stuck to neutral or earthy tones in the past, try jewel tones with a touch of purple.

    7. Love Your Lips

    Lip love should be your mantra of the year. Exfoliating lips before you apply gloss or lipstick is habit you want to start. And don't shy away from lip liner this year. Lancôme Le Crayon, for example, is a sleek, richly-pigmented liner for everyday use that’s versatile and comes in many colors.

    8. Nail It

    Like a weekly exfoliation plan, getting regular manicures should be on your list for the year. What makes a girl feel more put together than a fresh mani?

    9. Erase Lines and Imperfections

    You may be turning another year older this year, but your skin doesn't have to! Look for anti-aging makeup with both line- and imperfection-erasing components. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup is one one such multitasker.

    10. Lay a Foundation

    Leave foundation lines in 2014. Take the time to find your perfect shade. Thanks to products made to blend with your skin tone, like Maybelline Fit Me Foundationor L’Oréal Paris True Match Super Blendable Makeup, it's not half the challenge it used to be. Find your perfect second skin and stick to it!
