New Year's Resolutions: The Hello! Fashion 2023 beauty edition

The digital team share how they will be elevating their routines in 2023

Forget punishing fitness regimes, bizarre food fads, or deluding yourself into believing that this year you will finally get round to learning Italian/reading the classics/starting your entire personality from scratch (insert as appropriate).

Here at the Hello! Fashion office we are incredibly lucky to work with some of the industry’s most sought after skin, makeup, hair and perfume gurus, and therefore, for 2023 we felt it was utterly appropriate to give our usually mundane resolutions list a fresh, beauty-related makeover. See what we did there? 

The Hello! Fashion digital team share how they will be elevating their beauty routines in 2023:

Natalie Salmon, Hello! Fashion Digital Editor


"My approach to beauty has changed over the years, I used to hardly wash off my makeup but meeting enough dermatologists has taught me to take better care of my skin in my 30s. I use CeraVe cleanser, followed by the nearest moisturiser I have lying around. I swear by Sunday Riley's CEO Afterglow cream and have just started using Augustinus Bader which all my friends have told me is life changing.

"For everyday makeup it's always Chanel's Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint as it's the only foundation I've ever used that doesn't mask my freckles. I'm lucky that my sister Yasmin Salmon is a makeup artist so she always gives me the best products. Recently she gave me Armani Beauty's liquid blush which looks so natural. Sweed Lashes' Lash Lift Mascara is a game changer in my opinion, I discovered it while living in Sweden and have never looked back.

"Annoyingly I'm still on the hunt for the perfect lipstick shade, I haven't quite nailed that yet. The best perfume I've ever used is by Memo Paris, and for hair I swear by my Babyliss Thermo-Ceramic Rollers for that gives you that salon-level blow dry look at home."

Less: Black liquid eyeliner, neglecting my skincare routine, not using SPF

More: Taming my brows, using brown eyeliner, lipstick discoveries

Orin Carlin, Hello! Fashion Digital Writer


"My personal beauty approach oscillates like no other. Depending on how I'm feeling, I'm equally content nipping out for a paper either barefaced save for a dash of Nars' inimitable Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser, or glammed to the nines, complete with red lip (Jones Road's 'Ruby' Lip Tint is my current weapon of choice)."

"Sadly, when it comes to hair, my styling skills are sorely lacking. This year I plan to perfect my own Matilda Djerf-level blow dry and turn my current dexterity deficiency on its head. Bring on the roll brushes."

"On a similar note, one of the gifts I was thrilled to receive this Christmas was Simplehuman's super sleek Sensor Mirror Compact. The hyper-clarity is a tad startling at first (viewing your pores in HD is humbling, to say the least), but its tru-lux light system which mimics the colour spectrum of natural sunlight is totally genius. The desk-to-dinner cab backseat makeover is mine to conquer in 2023."

Less: Overenthusiastic flannel action, sleep deprivation, loose powders with explosive tendencies

More: Root volume, clever beauty tech, Bio Sculpture gel manicures, perfume experimentation

Lauren Ramsay, Hello! Fashion Digital Intern


"My current beauty motto is more or less: 'If it's not broken, don't fix it.' Superfacialist's Vitamin C Skin Renew Cleansing Oil and Olay's Regenerist moisturisers always start and end my day. Anastasia Beverly Hills' Luminous Foundation is my natural-looking skin saviour, and the ever-reliable Charlotte Tilbury usually makes up the rest of my base. Its Instant Look In A Palette does precisely what it says on the tin.

"A glossy lip is my go-to, and shading with a liner then topping up with a gloss or good old Carmex is my usual routine. A friend is bringing me a Rhode Peptide Lip Treatment from the US this month – trying Hailey Bieber's coveted brand will undeniably be the highlight of my year.

"Revlon's Hot Brush is a hair game changer (especially if you can't commit to a Dyson). Combining my blow dry with a good heat-defence spray, The Inkey List's Hyaluronic Acid Hair Treatment and Herbal Essences' Frizz Control Oil, I have found that my hair is longer and healthier than ever."

Less: Neglecting my eyebrows, using my nails as an anxiety tool, getting ready so last-minute that even if I wanted to experiment with makeup, I don't have time

More: Dermatological visits, eyeshadow tutorials, body lotion
