The Lipstick League – Week of 1.5.15

Question of the Week: What’s your beauty resolution for 2015?

EauMG’s Answer: I know they have a bad reputation, but I actually really like New Year’s resolutions. I usually have mine ready to go when the first hits, but this year, I’m procrastinating. Beauty resolutions are my most shallow, so I have those down. One of them is to begin jogging. But, actually stick with it even if it is pitiful like 15 minutes a day. I need something that works for me and something that I can easily do. So far, I’ve stuck with it. The other resolution is to equip my skincare arsenal with the “big guns” which means that I’m getting serious and seeing a dermatologist. As far as perfume, I really have no resolution. I rarely buy full-size bottles. I guess I need to thin out my collection; that could be a resolution. And with makeup, I should probably do no-buys more than I do. Like only “open up” a month to buy products each season and the other months are “closed”.
