Every year comes with new beauty trends and makeup products designed to make it easy and fun to put your best face forward. As you ring in 2013, you might be making resolutions to get fit or work toward a new goal at the office, but you might also want to make some beauty resolutions. Has your year been as beautiful as it can be? If not, here are some fun resolutions to make to ensure 2013 is your prettiest yet.
Resolution #1: Try a new trend every month
In 2012, trends like orange lipstick, top knots, accen99208t nails and other fun looks were in, but you might have passed them over, assuming they'd be too bold for you. Not this year! Resolve to try something daring at least once every month. Start this month with a bold manicure using one of the CND Nail Colour - Bolds. If you think you'll have trouble sticking to this one or are too self-conscious about trying out a new trend, recruit a friend to go on this beauty journey with you. You'll be more likely to stick to it and you can both have fun reviewing your respective forays into the bold beauty world - some nights, you could even try them together and hit the town feeling daring.
Resolution #2: Establish your own personal "greatest hits"
Cosmopolitan Magazine recommends clicking through your Facebook pictures or others taken of you in 2012 and reflect on which looks you liked the best. Then, resolve to repeat these looks, effectively establishing a repertoire of your "greatest hits." Maybe you loved your hair when you let your natural curls show through, or felt totally bold when you penciled in your brows. Invest in some hair products to make this possible again this year! The Steiner Kink Control Anti-Frizz Cream 150ml keeps your curls intact while preventing frizz, and the Colorescience Brow Palette is the perfect all-purpose brow-perfecting tool.
Resolution #3: Stop picking everything
Picking at your zits makes them worse and leads to scarring, while picking at your cuticles makes hangnails even more painful and can cause infection - whatever it is you pick at, resolve to stop this year! If you can't keep your hands off your face, investing in high quality Bliss products like the Bliss No Zit Sherlock Complete Acne System could help. With consistent use, you might just find you don't have anything left to pick at!
