These are the 3 beauty promises I'm making to myself this year in the name of efficiency, organisation and generally all-round beauty happiness!
Thou shalt use a top coat!
I am a fresh mani addict - I can go no longer than one full day with a chipped and unruly mani. It's my thing. So when I skip the top coat, my work is doubled, with less longevity and more repainting needed more often. I'm committed to using a top coat each and every time I give my nails a fresh slick this year. So far, I'm loving the INM Out the Door topcoat.
Thou shalt make friends with a faux tan!
I'm so sick of being envious of everyone else's faux tan come the weekend and it's time to socialise. And it's not because I can't fake tan. It's simply because I can't ever be bothered to fake tan. This WILL change in 2014! I'm promising to faux tan on the reg (and making sure to scrub up and moisturise too to make the process and results a whole lot better). I started trialing the Tuscan Tan Wash Off Bronzing Mousse this summer, and so far, so good. A temporary tan, it goes on as easily and washes off like a dream too - perfect for practicing the fine art that is fake tanning!
Thou shalt make an effort, even when one can't be bothered...
We all have those days. The ones where you just can't be bothered. The thing is, just a hint of an effort will really make a difference, so for those days when I'm keeping everything else minimal, I'm making the promise to apply a mascara at the very least; it's the one item I think makes the most difference to my overall look. I'll be amping up my use of the awesome Modelco Fat Lash Mascara. It has a smudge-proof, buildable formula that's both ultra volumising and lengthening for a striking look, with minimal effort. Winning!

What are your beauty promises for 2014? As you can tell, I prefer the 'shalls' to the 'shal nots' - it's so much more positive! Share yours with me in the comments below! - Lauren
