As of today, summer is officially here! Woohoo!
Lately I keep thinking of things I want to change about or incorporate into my beauty routine so I’ve been scribbling them all down to look back at them later on. I figured that turning them into a list of resolutions for summer was a great idea!
I feel like I’ve been in a sort of beauty rut lately and I want to break out of it so badly. Here are some of the ideas I’ve come up with for creating a new and improved version of myself…
- Drink more water and stop drinking sodas. Also start eating healthier and working out more regularly.
I want to be in better shape, have better skin, and feel more confident.
- Add more color into my daily makeup routine.
I always tend to lean towards neutrals, especially if I’m having a lazy day or I’m in a hurry, but I really want to step outside my box and start having more fun with color… No more Blankety Lipstick and Bisque/Wedge Eye Shadow combo for me!
- Try different, colorful, creative things with my nails other than a pretty color + glitter.
I want to try new nail shapes and really focus on details more. I’m even going to try an at-home snakeskin manicure using shed skin from all of my little ball pythons.
- Wear (and perfect) winged eye liner, especially with bright colors.
I can apply winged liner easily and flawlessly to everyone but myself. Weird, but true.
- Start wearing heels and platforms more often…
Of course that involves me learning to walk in them better but practice makes perfect.
- Use perfume more often, rather than scented body lotions and sprays.
I think there is something so feminine and sexy about perfumes. I always feel so much more put together and confident when I wear them. I have SO many different scents but I only wear them on “special days”… Well, I think every day should be special! I blame my mother for my perfume buying habit hehe.
Those are a couple of my summer beauty resolutions… I’m curious if any of you have some as well! Share them in comments if you do!
P.S. I apologize for there not being a Tuesday Tip this week. I had a bit of a fall and tore the ligament in my left ankle so I spent my Tuesday in several different doctor’s offices. I got a sweet boot/brace to wear so I’ll heal up quickly and be back on my feet in no time (har har). Tuesday Tip will be back next week!!
