The New Year is all about making goals and resolutions to stick to over the next 365-days. While some might be harder to adhere to (expensive gym membership, we’re looking at you) others can be a whole lot of fun such as making a new beauty resolution! Make sure your beauty resolutions are on-trend with these seven beauty must-haves.
1. Lip Service
Love the red lip look, but unsure how to wear it? This classic lip colour is easy to pull off, and it’s just a matter of finding a shade that matches your skin tone.
Red lipsticks with blue undertones are great for fair complexions, but if you are of a warmer skin tone, then go for a red lipstick with orange or burgundy tones. For darker complexions, try plum-red lipsticks.
Below are our favourite reds by:

4. Master Strokes
Do you find the terms cat eye and winged eyeliner a little confusing? While these two terms are often used interchangeably, the cat eyeliner finishes with a softer flick at the end, while the winged eyeliner has a bolder and thicker flick.
For the cat eye flick, first start drawing a line along your lash line, and finishing with a light flick upwards at the end of your eye.
Similarly, to create the winged eye look, first use the Revlon Liquid Eye Pencil, in Precise, $29.99, to draw a line following your lash line, and finish the look off with a bolder upward flick.

5. Shimmer & Shine
Daytime shimmer instantly transforms your look from fine to fabulous.
For daywear, lightly dab the Australis Metallix Eyeshadow, $14.00, across your eyelids for a hint of shimmer. For an evening out, simply work more eyeshadow onto your lids for a bolder pop of colour.
If you’re looking to shine a spotlight on your best features, use either the Nude By Nature Touch of Glow Highlighter Stick, $29.95 or the Australis Mineral Highlighter, $23.50 to highlight and enhance.
