Last year, we made some pretty lofty resolutions. Let’s see how we did, shall we? P.S. Don’t forget to check out our 2017 Beauty Resolutions here.
Try out more new (to us) beauty brands! We have an ongoing list of brands we’ve heard great things about but have never tried anything from. We don’t want any potential greatness left undiscovered this year, so we’ll try as much as possible to find you the best products out there! How we did: Really well! We explored Sunday Riley, MV Organics, May Lindstrom, Korean beauty, Glossier, etc.
Embrace the crazy makeup trends. Makeup is temporary and can (and should!) be washed off at the end of each day, so we’re challenging ourselves to step even further outside of our comfort zones when it comes to makeup and, at least, try every crazy trend that comes our way in 2016. We’ll do it so you don’t have to 😉 How we did: Better at the end of December with the launch of our December Dares – red eyeshadow, headband updos, and black lipstick were no match for us.
Improve our skin care routine. While we’re never one to let our skincare routine slack, we are aiming to keep it more natural and streamlined to only the products that deliver us the best results. We’ve been switching things up a bit lately and have been beginning to notice a difference, so stay tuned! How we did: Okay. We can definitely improve here. While we did try a lot of new skincare brands (many natural ones!), our overall routine is typically not natural.
Experiment more with hair tutorials. You all seemed to really enjoy the braided hair looks we put together during the holidays and we’d love to bring more content like that to the site in the new year. How we did: Also okay! We started the year with our partnership with dear friend, Lauren Kelp, which allowed us the chance to create some fancy and fun looks for you (including our top post of the year!). We’ll continue focusing on this in 2017, so let us know what you’d like to see here or on YouTube.
