‘Fess up: When you make a New Year’s resolution, do you really keep it going all year long? We’ve all been there! You might have the best intentions in January, but going to the gym every day isn’t exactly as easy to commit to as it sounds. So, this year, why not make resolutions you’ll actually want to truly keep? That’s right: It’s time to revamp your beauty routine for 2018! From perfecting a new skin care routine, to experimenting with makeup to trying different lipstick finishes to perfecting the glazed donut highlighter trend, make 2018 the year that you amp up your beauty game in a big way. What are you waiting for? Here are 10 beauty resolutions to start the new year right.

BEAUTY resolution #1: remove makeup every night

OK, so we know you’ve heard this before, but it bears repeating! Sleeping in your foundation, mascara, and eyeliner is not exactly the best idea for your skin. In fact, while you sleep, that remaining makeup can mix with the dirt and oil on the surface of your skin—and this can lead to clogged pores, which can lead to breakouts and blackheads. Check this resolution off your list by stocking up on micellar water. Beloved by the French for years, this no-rinse facial cleanser is buzzy stateside now for good reason. Powered by tiny micelles—oil molecules—suspended in soft water, micellar water helps lift dirt, oil, and makeup off and away from the surface of your skin—no rinsing (or harsh rubbing!) required. Try the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Micellar Water Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types.

beauty resolution #2: use an anti-aging moisturizer

If you’ve considered putting together an anti-aging skin care routine but still haven’t yet, why not go for it in the new year? New year, new skin care routine! To get you started, add an anti-aging moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro Retinol & Centella Asiatica, to your skin care routine. This anti-aging cream formulated with Pro-Retinol and Centella Asiatica helps repair the skin’s moisture barrier and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use over time. Apply morning and night after cleansing.

beauty resolution #3: ADD sugar scrubs and face masks to your skin care routine

Your skin deserves a little pampering every now and then. And we don’t just once every six months. That doesn’t mean you have to hit up the spa all the time—you can show your complexion some love right at home by using sugar scrubs and face masks a few times a week. To exfoliate your skin, try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub. As far as face masks go, choose from the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask. Use your face scrub and face mask 2-3 times a week.

beauty resolution #4: BUST OUT OF YOUR HAIR COLOR COMFORT ZONE

Envious of all the rainbow hair hues you see while scrolling through your social media feeds? Why not take a risk and paint your strands an eye-catching shade, too? Whether you love blue hair or pink hair or you prefer pastels over brights, a new hair color could be the perfect way to usher in the new year and be a little more adventurous. You can either hit up the salon and have a colorist give you a brand spanking new hair color or you can dye your hair in your own bathroom with an at-home hair color kit. Before making a commitment, give a new hair color a test drive with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray, which washes out in one shampoo.

beauty resolution #5: rock a throwback shiny lip

Just as we suggest switching up your hair color in the new year, it’s time to do the same thing when it comes to your lipstick choices, too. While matte and metallic lips were beloved in 2017, 2018 is forecasted to be the year of the shiny lip. You know the makeup look—it was popular in the ‘90s and early ‘00s. To try it yourself, take your pick from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick, which is available in 16 gorgeously glossy shades.

beauty resolution #6: always use a primer before makeup

Have you ever wondered why your foundation doesn’t look as smooth as your favorite beauty bloggers’? Well, while they may have a different skin type than you, it could be that you’re forgetting a very important step of your makeup routine: primer. Layering on a glowing or matte primer can make all the difference in the world, as it can create a smooth base for your makeup application. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Lock Makeup Primer or L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lock Makeup Primer, depending on which finish you prefer.

Beauty resolution #7: APPLY YOUR FOUNDATION AND CONCEALER WITH A MAKEUP BLENDER

Want to create a flawless-looking complexion? It’s all about how you apply your face makeup. Instead of dabbing on your foundation or concealer with your fingers, use a makeup blender instead. For foundation, try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, applying a small amount of liquid foundation onto your makeup blender and using dabbing and rolling motions to blend it onto your skin. For concealer, try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender, applying concealer to the blender and using quick dabbing and rolling motions wherever you want to conceal (such as under your eyes or under your brow bone). 

beauty resolution #8: JUMP ON THE COLOR CORRECTION TRAIN

Out with the old concealer and in with the new! Take advantage of color correction, a technique that involves using different pastel-colored concealers to mask imperfections on the opposite end of the color wheel. Try the L’Oréal Paris True Match Color Correction Crayons, which come in five concealer shades. Use the green if you have redness, bisque, peach or orange if you have dark circles under eyes, and yellow if you have discolorations. Dab your color corrector shade of choice onto your skin with your concealer blender and use sparingly. Follow up with foundation for a beautiful look.

beauty resolution #9: perfect the dewy skin look

No-makeup, makeup really made a name for itself here in 2017 and there’s no chance of it slowing down in 2018. So, if you want to hop on the glassy, dewy skin look, here’s what you should do. If you can get away with skipping foundation, massage a dollop of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer onto your skin from your forehead to chin. The sheer highlighting effect can help give your complexion the perfect no-makeup, makeup finish. If you want to transform your foundation-perfected face into a dewy masterpiece, after applying primer, use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation and a few drops of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops. Top it off with a quick dusting of the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette or L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder across your cheekbones and voila— dewy perfection!

beauty resolution #10: BECOME BFFS WITH sun protection

Another piece of beauty advice that’s worth listening to is taking sun protection measures daily, no matter what time of year it is. Start by applying a moisturizer with SPF, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30, as directed. Remember to reapply at least every two hours or immediately after swimming or sweating (so toss the bottle in your bag when you leave for the day!). But your sun protection routine shouldn’t stop with sunscreen. You should also limit your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., which are the sun’s peak hours), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
