There’s a certain power in the idea of what a new lipstick shade holds. Each test swipe on the back of the hand ushers in a fresh wave of optimism; with this lip color, a stroke of fortune, a good date, or a promotion just might follow. Never are these feelings more potent than on the first days of the new year, but as the saying goes, one must make room for the good by clearing out the bad. That might mean rethinking the contents of an overflowing drawer stuffed with once-used products or infusing a favorite makeup routine with a bold new blush or eyeliner. To get us started, six It girls reveal the beauty vices they plan on leaving behind and the virtues they plan to embrace in 2016.
The Beauty Vice:
“Traveling with so many products!”
The Beauty Virtue:
“Less is more. As per my amazing dermatologist, I will detoxify my skin by not using any skincare products for a month, only a clarifying tonic from Clinique and oil-free tinted sunscreen with SPF 50 from Skinceuticals. She says it will clear my pores and prevent pimples and allergic reactions generated by randomly chosen and applied chemicals on my skin.”
