13 Beauty Resolutions to Make for 2015

For your most gorgeous year ever, add some (or all!) of these resolutions to your list this New Year’s.


1. I will stop over-tweezing my brows.

…Try filling them in with an eyebrow pencil instead. Bold brows are in!

…Try a polish that boasts extra long wear.

3. I will venture outside of the standard gray smoky eye.

4. I will put down the blow dryer and embrace my curls.

…Try a great anti-frizz serum. Giving hair a break from the heat will feel leave it looking and feeling healthier.
