The Beauty Bucket List

I saw this post on Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup’s blog when I was having a browse through her old blog posts the other day and decided that it was a good idea to replicate. The idea is to share with my blog readers a list of the beauty tasks that I want to accomplish by the end of 2014… 
  1. Get the chop // One thing I despise about my appearance is my hair. I feel like it sits there on my head like a mop that sometimes gets in the way of my eyes so doing something interesting with it this year is the plan. I have a few rather Shaun-like ideas in mind but I’m still on the hunt for something that’s perfect. I also want to dye it a much lighter shade of brown… any suggestions?
  2. Get ’em threaded // I love my eyebrows. I love having such big, bushy eyebrows that people are currently longing to have but they do grow a bit more that I like them to. I’m terrible at plucking because I struggle to grab the hairs so I do tend to cheat and shave them (a terrible way to do them). So I want this year to be the year that I pluck (pun) up the courage to have them threaded.
  3. Tan me up // Even though I seem to have a rather colourful head and neck, my limbs and the rest of my body are totally pasty pale, so I want this year to be the year that I start attempting some fake tan so that my poor body doesn’t look so odd… And then not too orange…
  4. Cat eyes for Shaunycat // One makeup product that I steer away from is eyeliner. It’s an odd thought for me because my favourite kind of makeup is eye makeup, so I feel like 2014 will be the year of the eyeliner for me. If you want to see my first proper dabble into the world of eyeliner, I’ve got a blog post about it coming up on Thursday… and a GIF is involved.
  5. The Contour Whore // I love contour but it’s something that I very rarely take the time to do because I’m still a bit unsure as to whether or not I’m doing it correctly. I’ve had a request to write a post about contouring, so finding out how to do it properly is something that I want to do this year.
  6. Passion for fashion // When I started Shaunyland, clothing and style was my true passion. I adore looking at clothes, piecing together outfits, clothes shopping and reading about clothes, but clothes seemed to take the back seat in the second part of last year. To make up for it (and to feed the hunger I have for drastically changing my style), I’m going to make a conscious effort to give clothing just as much attention as I’ve given beauty recently.
  7. Have a manicure // I don’t know if this is a silly one to put on this list but I’ve never had a manicure before and it’s something that I’m desperate to have. I think the fear of being judged has kind of overwhelmed me for a long time, but I don’t care anymore so it’s something I’ll be doing this year.
  8. A bolder approach // Finally, I really want to be more daring with my makeup choices this year. I’ve always been very open to dressing in some very bold ways in the past, so I don’t really understand why I’m fussing over wearing bolder makeup. Let’s see what kind of ideas I come up with this year…
