Confessing My Sins and Writing New Vows

Whilst I blog about beauty, love trying out new products, have a pretty good knowledge of products and the dos and don'ts of beauty related issues, I'll be the first to admit I'm ridiculously lazy when it comes to my routine. 

I've come up with list of my beauty vows so now they're written down and published for all of you to see and maybe this will encourage me to actually keep them up (hopefully for longer than I can keep up my New Years resolutions anyway)
  1. Experiment with make-up
    I have the same make-up routine pretty much everyday and only minor adjustments for an evening look. I wear dark smokey eyes without a doubt everyday but really need to start experimenting with nudes seeing as there's so many amazing Nude palettes out there
  2. Experiment with products
    I've always been really bad experimenting with new products which I think has come from a fear of not wanting to waste money on a rubbish product. I've definitely got much better since blogging, feeing it's my duty to try out loads of products to review them for you guys, and also your recommendations persuade me to buy things I never would have before. I definitely vow to be more experimental when it comes to trying new products!
  3. Wash my make-up brushes more often
    I currently wash my make-up brushes roughly once every two weeks but I still feel like that isn't enough. I need to dedicate an hour a week (no exceptions) to cleaning them up!
  4. Take my make-up off at night
    Ok this is a bad one. Prepare for the world's beauty bloggers to have a disgusted look on their face right now... but I rarely take my make-up off! I think that's quite an admission for a beauty blogger to admit to this but it's about time I confessed my sins! I only take my make-up off and cleanse and moisturise properly in the morning! Part habit, part laziness and part I always get bad skin when I take my make-up off at night! Hence the reason for my next vow
  5. Find a proper skin care routine to suit my skin
    One of the reasons I stopped taking my make-up off at night was due to getting bad skin when I did so. I have no idea why, I just did! When this happened I didn't change my routine to find alternative options, I took the lazy way out and started to only take it off in the morning. Obviously I know how bad it is to leave make-up on overnight (don't need to tell me!) so now I'm vowing time to find the perfect combination of products and to dedicate time every night to taking my make-up off and looking after my skin properly, which leads me on to my next beauty vow...
  6. Moisturise head to toe
    Without fail, I moisturise my face after I take my make-up off in the morning but that's most definitely not enough. Yet again, I'm lazy (shock) and rarely moisturise all over due to the time is takes. I literally need a 30 second routine! I've read loads of good reviews of the Vaseline Spray and Go moisturiser, and apparently it's particularly good for lazy people like me so I definitely need to give it a go!
  7. Use heat protection
    Another awful confession... I don't use any heat protection on my hair! I do consider my hair to be in quite good condition, I don't dye it and rarely use heat on it but I definitely do need to invest in some heat protection
  8. Throw out old make-up and products
    I'm pretty sure we're all guilty of this one, I rarely finish a product, I just buy more or get distracted having found an alternative. I have so many drawers at home of make-up and beauty products probably only used once or twice just gathering dust. Products have a use by date on the label which is generally between 6 and 12 months. Based on this probably half my stuff can be chucked, I'm just not sure I have the heart yet! I think this might be one vow I'll break...

So there's my confessions in black and white. This is what happens when you have two jobs, a blog and are studying for another two courses on the side... Definitely too lazy when it comes to looking after myself properly! 

I hereby promise to try and keep all my new vows! If anyone has any product recommendations based on my vows, please let me know!! 

Anyone else got anything to confess? I can't be the only one surely?!

  2. I'm the same with washing my makeup brushes, I really need to do it more often but it feels like such a boring chore that I can never be bothered.
    I'm 30 and have only just started a proper skincare routine, I know I should have done it years ago and my skin might be better now if I had but I was always a makeup addict and never took any notice of the warnings about skincare being so important, I would always start of with good intentions and then lose interest but for the last 6-8 weeks I've been using Elemis products and have really stuck with it, my skin is definitely looking better apart from the oily/pore problem that I just can't seem to fix.

    Good luck with sticking to your vows
