reduce blowdry damage_2015 beauty resolutions

Well, this is one way to burn your fingers while blowdrying your hair.

Lovelies, the subject of beauty resolutions has arisen again, this time with The Lipstick League. They, too, want to know: what's your beauty resolution for 2015? Need to start washing your face before bed more often? Thinking to blowdry your hair less often? Gotta wash those makeup brushes more regularly? Determined to try some new techniques? There's no judgement here; we've all got our issues. I'm trying to put my face on before I leave the house instead of in the back of a cab -- and so far I'm about even when it comes to success vs oops. #workinprogress

Here's what's on deck this week with our Lipstick League:
