I’m taking some time to think about what I want to be different in my life for 2018 and what small changes I can make without becoming overwhelmed and giving up in a few months. Committing to making changes is one thing but having a plan of action identifying the steps needed to accomplish those changes helps.
I tend to change my beauty or rather makeup taste with the seasons. Simple and minimal in the spring/summer and a heavier and more everyday glam in the fall/Winter. This year though I have been keeping my look more basic in the winter too. I ended the last year doing a major purge of my stash. Not only did I clean up and get rid of all products, but I also got rid of things I just wasn’t reaching for often. As I decided to get rid of things, I realized I hadn’t been wearing much makeup lately anyway.
I’m focused more on skincare than makeup these days, so that’s a factor, and so is enjoying the extra 20 minutes or so I can sleep in during the week.
I have managed to cut my everyday makeup look down to a 5-minute routine, and I only use four products.
