Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

Welcome to Year 7 of our Pan It! Challenge ElleElleG_0-1704168084184.gif

The "Rules"

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),
  • ask questions,
  • encourage others,
  • motivate others with the looks you create with your item(s)

 

Tips and Tricks to Panning/Getting Some Use Out of Your Stash:

Spoiler
  • 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.)

 Ideas to Help You Pan Those Items:

Spoiler
  • Roll the dice: number your items and use a random number generator to pick what you will use each (day/week/month/etc.) 
  • Layer/Mask: items you are less fond of under things you like
  • Pan a Look: at the beginning of the week pick a look that you can wear everyday
  • Recreate: a look worn by a fellow BICer, celebrity, etc.
  • Spice up an "everyday" look by adding subtle pops of color (in the crease or on the lower lash line, mix lip products to make shades wearable, etc.)

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

Hey y’all, here’s the final update for my 2023 project: Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5

 

IMG_20181213_094621_894_Original.jpeg

Where it all began … I purchased this in December 2018 and immediately fell in love with Lavender Gray and Shell (shades 2 & 3). 

I hit pan towards the end of 2021 and in 2022 I started rotating into my panning items.

Alright here are the 2023 highlights

So this is where we are and I think I’m calling this done. I wanted to use the entire thing but Light Coral (Shade 4) has never been a shade that I enjoyed. Gold shades in general aren’t colors I gravitate toward and this shadow in particular is thin. Alone it was a struggle to use this but I managed to hit pan by pairing it with Rosewood (Shade 1). Maroon (shade 5) is a color I’d typically reach for but for some reason this was used only sporadically. I can’t recall having any issues with the shade but I largely treated it like it wasn’t there.

 

At this point I won’t toss these shades but I’m definitely ready to focus on something else. Speaking on something else, I’m going to need some help deciding which palette to work on so I’ll shade some options next 😁

Re: Pan It! - 2024 Challenge

Wow, I don't remember the last time I used a shadow fully like that nevermind 3 @ElleElleG Way to go.
