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.
Products I Finished by my 20 in 2020 Project Pan Update #3
ColourPop – Super Shock Shadow in Falling Up ($4.50, CF)
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
