January 1 brings promises of cutting back on wine and hitting the gym regularly. No matter how big or small, most of these resolutions are a work in progress rather than an instant transformation. But if you’re looking for ways to refresh your life and see results quickly, consider taking the L’Oréal Paris 2020 Beauty Challenge. Set your sights on achieving healthier skin and a glowing complexion with a few cost-effective pick-me-ups to take your look to the next level.
Challenge #1: Mask more often.
Make 2020 the year of investing in yourself: Try masking once a week. Detoxify skin while reducing excess oil and kick pore-clogging impurities to the curb with L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Cleansing Mask for Dull Skin. Don’t wait!
Challenge #2: Get a new mascara.
To get the most out of your mascara, you should be getting a new tube every two months. Swap out that dried-up mascara you’ve been hanging onto for a new one that promises to bestow lashes with length, volume and staying power. Meet L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. With more than 200 bristles, the wand catches every last lash, including those in the notoriously-hard-to-reach inner corners.
Challenge #3: Find your perfect match.
A flawless complexion is only a few swatch tests away. Ace your base with a foundation that matches your skin tone perfectly and leaves you with a beautiful canvas. L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation is a lightweight, long-wearing liquid formula that leaves skin with a matte finish that never looks dull.
Challenge #4: Dip into anti-aging.
If you’d like to look healthy and youthful as the decades go by, consider increasing the potency of your daily moisturizer with one that can improve skin tone, hydrate and diminish wrinkles. Enter L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR Day Moisturizer. It contains pro-retinol, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to visibly reduce wrinkles, increase firmness and brighten skin in just one week.
Challenge #5: Learn how to draw a cat-eye.
If you’ve always wanted to perfect the application of cat-eye liner, you should know that using the right product is just as important as learning the technique. L’Oréal Paris Infallible Super Slim Eyeliner is a skinny felt-tip liner (0.4 millimetres, to be exact) that makes drawing lines a breeze while the jet-black formula stays put until you wash it off.
Challenge #6: Stick with hydration.
If you have chronically dry skin, you need to moisturize, moisturize and then moisturize again morning and evening. L’Oréal Paris Moisture Filler Collagen Cream is filled with natural collagen and provides an intense dose of hydration.
Challenge #7: Build a better brow.
Your eyebrows have the power to totally change the look of your face. The right brow shape (and product) can lengthen and define it.
L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Definer has a fine point that you can use to draw fine lines to mimic hairs. It also comes with a spoolie brush to blend lines in and comb brows in place.
Challenge #8: Commit to using serum every day.
Even if one of your resolutions is to drink more water, your skin is the last organ to receive it. Reach for hyaluronic acid instead. L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power LZR 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum has 0.5% high-Molecular weight hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin at its surface and 1% low-molecularweight hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump skin from within.
Challenge #9: Set it and forget it.
If you’ve gone to the trouble of doing your makeup, you may as well make it last as long as possible. This year, add just one more step to your routine and finish your looks with L’Oréal Paris Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray. This setting spray prevents your makeup from smudging, creasing and fading.
Challenge #10: Build a better glow.
With winter comes duller and lacklustre skin. Switch up your lighter moisturizer for one with serious hydrating power that imparts skin with a healthy-looking flush. L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Day Cream is formulated with LHA, which exfoliates, and imperial peony, which gives skin a hint of blush.
