New Year Beauty Reset


   

In the new year I am always ready for a fresh-face reset. After holiday parties full of dark eyeshadow, heavy powdered faces, glitter, and dark nails, I always try to move to the lighter side of things come January. For my base, something like the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel is perfect for me. It gives my face a burst of hydration and some light, evening coverage, all while looking natural and glowy. I like to apply it with my Real Techniques Sponge to make the product look even more skin-like. I enjoy wearing a base like this day and night in the new year. Another area I love to lighten up are my nails. You can usually catch me wearing a red at most times throughout the year, but after dabbling in dark blues and blacks with glitter in the festive season, I like to go for a more neutral color like Essie's Gel Couture Polish in Sheer Fantasy.

For the eyes, I still love glitter, but in much more natural tones to brighten the eye. 
I always reach for my Stila Eyes are the Window to the Spirit palette during this time of year for pretty and neutral shades. If I want to add a liquid liner, I am much more likely to go for a brown for some subtle definition. As far as the lips go, after destroying my kisser for most of the month with Kylie Cosmetic Liquid Lipsticks (amazing, but super drying) I like to reach for a gloss, such as the Kylie Cosmetics Gloss in Literally, for a beautiful rosy nude shade with amazing pigment, or if I would like a more sheer option, Marc Jacobs gloss in French Tickler is so easy to wear and adds the perfect amount of shine. 


I have been thoroughly enjoying keeping things light and fresh in the new year so far. In my life, and on my face.
