Project Pan!

Hey guys!

As I said in my last post, I’m looking to downsize my collection and work through my non-cruelty-free items. While I’ve been on my cruelty-free journey, I’ve stopped buying so much makeup because I’m overwhelmed by what I have and cruelty-free stuff is just less readily available, honestly. I’ve been watching a lot of project pan, declutter and minimalism videos so I’ve been really inspired to go through my makeup, get rid of what I don’t like and use up what I need to use up before it goes bad. I’ve decided that I’m going to do my first project pan and this is going to be the introduction post where I show you the products and why I want to work through them!

‘Round and ’round like a horse on a Carousell

Hey guys!

Today, I’m going to be talking about an app that I think everyone who hoards things needs. I collect a lot of makeup and part of that is because I love it and part of it is because I want to talk about new things on my blog a lot but lately I’ve been watching A LOT of project pans, declutter, and minimalism videos on YouTube and I’ve become inspired to downsize my collection a bit. Especially with my Journey to Cruelty-Free. I’d originally been using Depop to try to sell some things but I never made much from it so I found a new app called Carousell and within the last week I made over $100+ so I just HAD to talk about it with you. This post isn’t sponsored, it’s just a friendly suggestion to those who want to make money and turn trash into treasure!

Journey to Cruelty Free #2

Hey guys!

If you haven’t read my first post in my cruelty free series, I’d recommend you start there before reading this one. In this post, I am going to be talking about the percentage of my collection that is cruelty free and how easy it is for me to create a cruelty free face of makeup with the products that I already own. I hope that you enjoy!

NYX FACE Awards: Fantasy

Hey guys!

The NYX FACE Awards is upon us again and this year’s first challenge is ‘Fantasy’! I wasn’t planning on recreating a character at first because I thought that was too easy but then I really thought about what was achievable and what would still be fun for me and a few characters came to mind. I teased a few ideas on my Facebook page about the characters that I thought were achievable in the time that I had to create this look and I ended up picking Sarah Williams from Labyrinth! I usually pick Disney characters and I wanted to do something a little bit different so TODAY I’m going to be sharing my Masquerade look complete with some Jareth bulge pics #RIPBowie.
