5 Beauty Habits For 2017

Folks! I talked about 5 Fashion Habits For 2017 here, so why not do a follow-up with 5 beauty habits for 2017 today? We all know that the way to change is to make something a natural part of your life. One way to do it is by creating habits for your life. Routines that will include your goals, but in a natural and unforced way. Here are ideas about 5 beauty habits to include!

5 Beauty Habits For 2017 + Skincare Routine, makeup inspiration, ideas for hairdos | The Fashion Folks

Skincare Routine

Skincare comes in many different versions and is highly dependent on what your skin needs. So, the habit I propose is to have some sort of routine for your skin, regardless of what it is (almost). Keeping it clean, leaving it alone and moisturize are three cornerstones that will pretty much take you a long way. It’s easiest to schedule the routine of washing and moisturizing to the bathroom and preferably when you’re brushing your teeth in the morning or evening. You can easily scale this one down to 1 or 2 minutes once you’ve find a process that works for you!

5:2 Hairdo

This is my own goal, to try new hairdos weekly. It’s not realistic to try new hairdos every day, so that’s why I thought of having the hair normal 5 days a week, and try something fun 2 days of the week. That makes it a 5:2 hairdo, which is pretty genius if you ask me. The hairdos I’m thinking about embracing are not particularly advanced, but breaks off the regular appearance with braids, a bun and different styles of it. There are tons of hairdo tutorials out there that are done within the minutes. Let Google be your friend on this one!

Have a statement makeup look

I know, I’m terrible when it comes to experimenting with my makeup. I think the majority of us have a go-to makeup look we always can rely on and so do I. But I love to push things to their limit, so for 2017 I’m gonna find a signature statement look. I already have a signature makeup look, I just got to throw the statement in their too. So I will at least have two different makeup looks to switch between, and choose between for occasion. Perhaps I’ll try one of these looks. All I know is that I want to add some color to my makeup life!

Do the nails weekly

Okey, so no, nails might not be the single most important thing that I’m specific about (but I do care), but I know that I always feel good about having my nails painted. So for 2017 I’m making it a habit to paint my nails weekly, whether it is re-applying or changing shade. Looking down and see a pop of color or a shade that matches the outfit always makes one feel a bit better. It’s basically just to put on an episode of a series or a Youtube clip and paint them meanwhile!  I wrote more about it here, btw.

Practice the makeup look

So this one is related to having a statement look, but this is also the main issue of why I’m only capable of having a signature look. Everytime I want to try a new makeup look, I do it the same time I’m about to go somewhere. As if I magically think that I’ll be able to get a makeup look right the first time. So practicing the makeup look is a must. I mean, I rarely get my outfits on point the first time I try them on – so why should I get it perfect every time with makeup. It’s okey not to create a perfect smokey eye look the first time, and not the second or third either. Let good things take time. And practice. Practice, practice, practice!

  1. I think it would be fun to try to do different hair looks. My hair is long so I’m sure there are a few things I do with it. I know for a fact that I’d never keep up with my nails though so I won’t even bother with that. I have chipped nails right now!

  2. I love the idea of trying a new hairstyle two days out of the week! I’m pretty basic about my hair, mostly leaving it out. I’ve tried a fish tail braid once and it just looked like a huge knot, lol, so I gave up, but I should definitely try to perfect it because switching up a style can feel quite refreshing. Not to mention, it can really enhance the vibe of an outfit! I have been slacking on my nails these past couple of weeks. I would do them once a week, but haven’t had the energy, as you know, but I hate the feeling of not having painted nails!!! It definitely makes me feel more put together, so I have to push past it and try and get them done. Thanks for sharing these ideas, beautiful, and I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far!

    • I’m also pretty basic about my hair and never give it enough love or time to create a fun hairdo, but I hope that’ll change in 2017. And as for the nails, you have a pretty good excuse for not doing them hellooo, haha I’m just lazy! Xx

  3. You’re so right, hun!!!
    I should practice make up and hairstyling much more too!
    I tend to stick to my usual 3 or 4 hairdos and about make up, well, let’s say that I’d start to use all those palettes and lipsticks almost new I’m keeping on buy!^^

  4. I’m totally embracing a skincare routine in 2017! I’ve been using my Clarisonic religiously and my skin looks and feels SO smooth! I love it! I also started using serums every single day and my skin texture has definitely changed for the better.

    I want to pay more attention to my hands and nails this year! I hardly ever go to the salon, but I think it’s about time I started. It’s such a simple thing and it makes such a big difference! I think I hate the “wasted” time spent there..but I’m horrible doing my own nails so I have to shell out the time and money. 🙁

  5. I need to upkeep these habits for sure! This morning I was just looking down at my nails that desperately need to be repainted 😉 Trying a new hairdo is something I need to get better with as well. It’s so just so dang hard when you work!!
