Should you start a project-pan? I always ask myself this question, since my makeup collection is pretty large. Most of my eye-shadow palettes have never been used before. If you are unaware of what a project pan actually is then let me fill you in. It is where you pick a selected number of beauty products, which can include makeup, hair and skincare items that you would like to use up by the years end.
Downsize Your Makeup Collection
Obviously the number one reason to start a project pan is to minimize your makeup collection. If you are anything like me you might have a ton of foundations or highlighters, or a ton of eyeshadow palettes. A project pan will slowly but surely help you downsize your makeup collection significantly.
Get Your Moneys Worth
Sometimes we forget that beauty products cost a lot, and have expiration dates. So, starting a project-pan will ensure that you get to some of the products that will be expiring soon. Or, even just the products that you haven’t even used.
Rediscover Your Makeup Collection
Remember that holy grail concealer, favorite dry shampoo. Participating in a project pan can help you get to know your products all over again. It might even give you the chance to fall back in love with some old favorite products.
Saves You Money
The whole point of a project pan is to downsize. By focusing on your own products you are less likely to buy any new beauty items. This will help you continue to add more products to an already overwhelming amount. And, it will make your bank account happy too.
Would You Recommend
Doing a project pan can give you a good sense of the type of beauty products you like. Also, you might find products that you would definitely repurchase in the future, and, or recommend to others.
These are some reasons to commit to a project pan, but if you are a minimalist when it comes to beauty products than just keep doing what you are doing. Before you go give my blog a follow, and leave a comment letting me know if you are doing a project-pan this year.

I bought some make-up before the lockdown. I had no reason to use make up so they just sat there untouched. I feel so bad about them.
I feel you! I use to be really into makeup and have a huge collection. I barely ever use any of my eyeshadow palettes. I feel like I wasted so much money on products I don’t even use.
