New year, new you! Beauty resolutions for the new year

2011 is here! And with that comes a slew of resolutions that we are certain we’ll do the best to keep … and then we’ll fail miserably. But this year, we’re trying something a little different and giving ourselves beauty resolutions instead of unattainable goals (like learning to cook like Julia Child, for instance). We’ve listed our resolutions below — and we’d love to hear what yours are, too!

Supergoop-SPF-30-Everyday-UV-Moisturizing-Sun-Protection-Lotion-For-Faces-&-Hands.jpgWear Sunscreen Daily
Every dermatologist and aesthetician tells us this is a must … and, still, we walk out of the house sunscreen-free on pretty much a daily basis. No more! We’ll be turning to our fave sunscreen, Supergoop! SPF 30+ Everyday UV Moisturizing Sun Protection Lotion for Faces & Hands ($22 at to ensure our faces remain young, vibrant and wrinkle-free for years to come.

NARS-Single-Eyeshadow-Daphne.jpgBe Adventurous with Eyeshadow
We’ve gotten into a bit of an eyeshadow rut. A bit of taupe shadow here, a bit of bronze shadow there, a coat of mascara to top it off … we’re getting super bored with our go-to look! In 2011, we vow to take chances with our eye makeup. Purples! Pinks! Greens! Blues! The sky’s the limit, thanks to gorgeous colors from every brand under the sun (our favorites are from NARS, M.A.C, Make Up For Ever and Bobbi Brown).

Drink More Water
Yes, we know we should drink 2 liters a day … but, to be honest, sometimes water is just too boring! Give us a Diet Coke, give us a martini, even give us cranberry juice — it’s tough to drink so much of the clear stuff on a daily basis. But we resolve to do our absolute best to drink tons and tons of water each and every day — because, at the very least, we know it will make our skin that much less dehydrated!

Rescue-Beauty-Lounge-Recycle-Nail-Polish.jpgPlay with Nail Color
We resolve to only wear boring pale pink on our nails once a month … at most! There are so many fabulous colors out there from brands like Deborah Lippmann, Illamasqua, Rescue Beauty Lounge (Recycle, above, is a favorite — $18 at … it seems foolish not to play!
