Spring 2017 Project Pan!

Hey everyone! So I really enjoyed my Winter project pan and since I have SO many products in my collection that either need more love or need to be used up ASAP, I decided I'll be doing a project pan with a different selection of products every month.

Here's what I chose for Spring 2017!

Of course, I'm bringing back the Nyx Prismatic Eye shadow in 'Girl Talk', since that was the one product in my last project pan that was pretty neglected. Hopefully I can get some good use out of this one this time around!

The big one for this project pan is my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This was my favourite palette EVER, but since I've purchased so many palettes in the past few months, I feel like this ones been pretty neglected, so my goal is to get some good use out of this and to (hopefully) on at least 3-4 shades.
This will probably be the easiest product in my project pan, since I've already hit major pan on this one. This is the Maybelline Fit Me powder, which I'd really like to completely use up since it's not my favourite face powder ever.
The last two items are my Nyx HD concealer and my Annabelle Big Show Mascara. I like both of these a lot, but don't use them as much as I should. I tend to reach for my Maybelline Fit Me concealer more than this Nyx one, so I'm going to work on using this one up for the next few months.
The Annabelle Big Show mascara is a really nice mascara that I actually have multiple back ups of, but I'd really like to finish it up (for the sake of decluttering a bit!).

What are you working on finishing up? Let me know!

Decluttering & Using My Stash

I decided to do a little decluttering of my makeup collection today, which I think is a great thing to do once in while, especially for those of us with a larger makeup collection. I often forget a lot of the makeup I have sitting around and a lot of great products just don't get enough use.

Going over all my products, getting rid of things I don't like and then reorganizing helps me remember some of the things I've been neglecting, and kind of renews my inspiration to step out of my comfort zone in terms of makeup looks.

Since I'm also on a no-buy, I've been making big efforts to use up my existing collection. Here are a few challenges I've taken on for myself to get to use up my makeup that I usually neglect on a daily basis, which I extend to all of you;

  • Try to create makeup looks using single shadows. We tend to gravitate more to palettes, and these single shadows tend to be used much much less. 
  • When you do use your eyeshadow palettes, create a look with the least used shadow in the palette. You may be surprised and discover a new favourite. 
  • As much as you want to use your favourite nude lipstick every day, challenge yourself to wear a different lipstick every day of the week. 
  • Pick out one (or more) random eye shadow and create an entire look around it (check out the Singles Cruise challenge on YouTube and tell me that doesn't look super fun!)

I've really loved doing this and it's really brought some excitement to my morning makeup routine.

Hope you've all been having a lovely week!
