#Beauty Resolution 2012

It is impossible to list twothousand and twelve resolutions, so let's be realistic (sweet and short) and keep it to 12, shall we?

*sorry I feel a bit empty without inserting an image - hence this random face.  FOTD posted HERE*
  1. Monthly beauty budget: HKD$1K (USD$125) - failed this one in 2011 very badly, and I'm going to challenge myself again.
  2. At least one FOTD per week.  - yes, even if I don't wear make up, I shall document my 'bare' face.
  3. Review my Naruko/ampm skin care one-by-one. - because I adore them and seriously think they need more praises or discussions.
  4. Investigate on good skin care brands, e.g. Aesop, Elemis, Sulwhasoo, Hera, Embryolisse, Sisley, Kate Somerville, Chantecaille, Lierac, Korres, Rodial, Rodin (oil), Caudalie, La Roche Posay, Fresh, SK-II, more Nuxe, Ren, Kiehl's (body and hair), Aveda (hair) - because I love taking care of my skin.  full stop.
  5. Study and try to acquire the 'top sellers' as much as possible: Deborah Lippman nail polish, Guerlain eyeshadow primer, Urban Decay Primer Potion, Urban Decay Eyeshadows (esp. Naked1 and Naked2), Face Front cosmetics, Becca concealer, Giorgio Armani eyes to kill mascara and eyeshadow, Chanel blush and eyeshadow, Laura Mercier base make up and concealer, Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner, MAC fix+ and tinted lip conditioner, Tom Ford lipstick and eyeshadow, Butter London nail polish, Inglot colour make up, Illasmasqua skin base foundation, Chantecaille lipgloss, Hakuhodo brushes, YSL Faux Cils mascara, Bobbi Brown Foundation, Kevyn Aucoin face make up, etc
  6. Downsize my stash: Make Up, Skin Care, Perfume, Hair Products, Bath and Body Products, etc.
  7. Project 20 Lips - probably swatch and use up as much of my lipstick/gloss collection as possible; still thinking on the details but the rough idea is there.
  8. Project Back2MAC - the name hints a lot, but still thinking on how to execute :P
  9. To blog in Chinese - perhaps make this place into bilingual - will you guys unfollow me or dislike me because of that?
  10. Learn how to style my hair - hair-styling is important!
  11. Wear, photograph and document every dear angels in my False Lashes Collection
  12. Target my laugh lines/premature wrinkles esp. around my eyes.  Note: no eye-rubbing is key.

I think that's quite comprehensive (and self-contradicting); enough for me to contemplate and work on for a full year.  I can see a lot of mind-battle going on in the coming 12 months :S

I have still a long list of unfinished posts to write, hence I may still write Acquired (hauls) posts and etc, but every month or so I shall give a report on how much I spent beauty-related.  OK?

Dear blogger friends/visitors, will you help monitor my progress and watch me along my way to improve - and acquire more - in the new year?  What's your new year (beauty) resolution(s)?  Tell me!

Cheers :D
