It’s the first Lipstick League post of 2015! Happy New Year, my lovelies. I hope it’s off to a wonderful start, and that this year is better than the last! I can’t believe that I’m already checking out spring collections—and I’m seeing some SUPER pretty items. Above is a pic of the new tartlette palette from tarte. Gorgeous, right? You’ll see more of it very soon!
Question of the week: What’s your beauty resolution for 2015?
Answer: To be honest, I kept my resolution very broad this year! I feel like every time I get super specific over it, and I’m unable to stick with it for whatever reason—I get upset with myself if I mess up. Then, it just starts a cycle of negative self talk in my head. I’d like to avoid that this year. (I guess that could be a resolution, now that I think of it!) But my “resolution” is just to do MORE of the things that make me feel happy and healthy. It’s not necessarily a specific beauty resolution, but it will count towards overall beauty if I’m smiling more, right? What about you? What’s your resolution—beauty or otherwise?
