At the risk of judgement, I finally took a risk to share the size and value of my makeup collection. The year-end tally was so shocking that I felt compelled to participate in my first official Project Pan.
As a participant in the 20 in 2020 Project Pan, my goal is to finish 20 products by the end of the year. If you are interested to keep up with my 20 in 2020 Project Pan Updates, please keep reading.

20 in 2020 Project Pan Update #3 | Products I’m Rolling In
Every time I finish a product included in my 20 in 2020 Project Pan, I will roll in a new product to work on. The bulk of the products I aim to finish in 2020 are makeup; however, as the project progresses, I may include skincare and haircare products.
Final Thoughts on my 20 in 2020 Project Pan Update #3
My progress during April slowed down considerably as a result of wearing less makeup. Although some of you may assume that this is due to the ‘stay at home’ orders, the main reason that I wore less makeup was due to my finals.
I am a full-time graduate student who is also working part-time. Across the board, I was bogged down with a ton of team projects in my classes and at work. Each of my projects spanned market research, consulting, and analytics. As a team lead on all of my projects, I felt overwhelmed by my workload.
Additionally, the prolonged time at home continued to wear me down. Some days, my mental exhaustion eclipsed my physical exhaustion. There were a couple periods where I found myself sleeping for 24 hours straight.
When I stop wearing makeup or reduce the amount I wear, it is usually a sign that I’m struggling. In some cases, I’m either beginning to enter a low period or I’m in the midst of a down period.
On the days I was wearing makeup, I was wearing less – partially due to lack of time and partially due to feeling frazzled. For example, there were days that I was so tired I that I forgot to apply primer or forgot to set my face.
However, despite experiencing such major woes, I am thankful to finally finish my ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Falling Up. After months of steady use, I was finally able to use up that shadow.
May Goals:I hope to finish up my BECCA Hydra-Mist Set and Refresh Powder & my Mini Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer
