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.)
@haleyvvvv thank you!! this is definitely the closest ive ever been to hitting pan on any shadows, so im excited to see what happens when i actually try to hit pan! not sure if the ignited is going to get there, but i'll have to play around with them. luckily only one shade is looking like theres some hard pan on there, so there's still hope!
@cianni -- finding a whole face palette you forgot about, great panning perk! You have some nice work ahead of you, challenging but not crazily. I'm sure you're going to find those lippies disappearing fast. Excited to see that Nirvana nearly kaput.
@heavyhedon i think it's one of my more realistic pan projects for sure, but it'll remind me to use some of my collection more effectively. a little unsure about the face palette, this is definitely one way to find out if i like it or not!
Here are the products I try to make more progress this year.
Another week or use? My caption gone?? Anywho I am hoping making more progress on TF face palette liked hitting pan on the blushers (will be tough but I need to try). I’d to hit pan on any shade of HG palette especially the face powder. I’ve been using it for a month now and barely making a dent 😂🤣 It would be a win if I pan any of these lip products especially the glosses. They’re bottomless 😂🤣
Beautiful choices @blackkitty2014! 😍 You’ve been killing it with that Tom Ford palette - super impressive that you’ve hit pan on so many shadows already. I’m excited to see you make that happen on the blusher. I have utmost faith in you!
Ohhh, is that the YSL lip oil? It was one my favorite lip products from their brand! ♥️
