Hey all you cool cats and kittens, welcome to YEAR 6 of the Pan It Challenge!
To accommodate a variety of interests, you all are encouraged to pick items to pan that are most suitable to your collections. For some, this might mean focusing on a particular type of product (like lipstick) and for others this may include a larger variety spanning your entire makeup or skincare routine.
Getting Started(please share the following)
Which item(s) you would like to work on
How long you will work on said item
Goal: explore a new item, revisit an old item, decide whether to keep pass or trash, and/or completely finish item, etc.
Starting photo of item
Please Use This Thread To...
share what item(s) you are working on,
provide comparative progress photos of your item(s) monthly (at the beginning of the month when possible),
motivate others with the looks you create with your item(s)
Tips and Tricks to Panning/Getting Some Use Out of Your Stash:
Take photos!!When you think you aren’t making a dent in anything look back at those photos, I’m certain you’ll see some changes😃*this is the number one recommendation for everyone, regardless of how long you’ve been panning! Those photos add up and can help you realize progress you might otherwise overlook.
If you goal is to hit pan or use something up entirely, try concentrating your brush/applicator in the same area each time you use it
Multitask your products: eyeshadows as highlighter, lipstick as blush, eyeshadow as brow powder, etc.
Layer eyeshadow to create different colors (this is especially helpful to get use out of shades you’re not fond of).
Have shadows with a ton of fall out?Use water
Watching the progress of others’ can be fun but try not compare your progress to theirs.We all use our makeup differently and have different goals.
Don’t restrict yourself to only using the item(s) you are working on.It’s more than OK to incorporate other items or take a break!
Makeup should be fun….if you begin to dread doing your makeup because you made a commitment to use a product that you now hate, TOSS IT!Do not force yourself to use up something you don’t like.Move on to something else! (This includes excluding particular shades from your goals if focusing on palettes, etc.)
Thank you @missjeanie! I want to get into more of a routine with my hair care. Not that I mind the wash-and-go approach I’ve subscribed to for years but paying a little more attention to my hair wouldn’t hurt, especially since I’ve been getting highlights more regularly.
I’m pretty sure that Morrocanoil will be repurposed into a body oil or hair mask at some point in the not too distant future. The original version can be a smidge heavy for my hair. Hmmm, good question. I think the WA could maybe double as blush but I am not great at wearing blush on the daily. And I have a fair share of blush as it is that I need to use. 😆 Surprised? Hahaha!
@missjeanie, my skin is suuuuuper dry right now. 😔 The desert 🏜️ really isn’t that dry compared to it at the moment. 😝 The perfect candidate to test out all sorts of lotion, cream, butter, oil - whatever works to add some serious moisture to my skin will definitely earn high praise!!
Thank you @BluePaisley! 😃 I’m excited for us to start up with a new project pan for the year. I kept the number of products smaller this year - for me, it’ll be more manageable and will allow me to maybe do some seasonal panning too without feeling like I’m juggling so much. Here’s to another year of panning! 🙌🏼
