What’s in my Current Makeup Bag ?
I have been doing project pan for around a year now, and I originally started this “challenge” to declutter and get rid of my overflowing items. I have used up quite a number of products so far and I have cut down on my purchases a lot except for getting the essentials when the product reaches its end. My previous project pan included my introduction to the challenge and my followup.
Whilst doing this challenge I have realised that having a small makeup bag with just the necessities makes it so much easier getting ready in the morning that I intend to keep doing it. So what’s in my current makeup bag?
How am I doing it now?
Since I’ve used up most of the items that were hitting pan, most of the items I have left are still almost new or have a lot product left in them, so what I am doing now to get the most use out of all my products is switching the contents in my daily make up bag every other month or so according to the season.
Since I am trying to use mostly natural products, I have thrown out all the foundations that scored over 7 in the think dirty app. I have decided not to use these products up since it will be covering my face thus I will be using quite a lot of such products and I did not donate them since I do not believe they are healthy I did not want to give them to anyone else to use.
I have kept some products, mostly eyeshadows in such range since I will only be using these occasionally and it will only be a tiny amount, so I think I can live with that. I will be switching up to natural eyeshadows for daily use though and I will be switching these products every month or so with ones with cleaner ingredients until I use a good amount of it to throw away the rest. At least that is the plan!
What Products I am using?
So my current make up bag at the moment consists of:
1x Skin Tint – H2O Skin Tint by PIXI in No1: Cream – which I use as a foundation / tinted moisturiser
1x Blusher – Inika Mineral Blush in 03 Blooming Nude which is also natural and vegan
1x small pot of aloe vera gel – which I use instead of clear eyebrow gel
2x eye pencil – I am using a Natural Collection one in black for my upper lash line and a Rimmel soft kohl in 021 denim blue which I use on my lower lash line
3x eyeshadow products – I am using the Inika Creme Eyeshadow in Champagne as a base all over my lid, them I am using the Revlon in Plum Matte which I use on the outer corners of my eyes and the Revlon Lilac Pearl which I use to blend in the plum shade.
So these are the contents of my current make up bag, they are very few but they are enough for my daily make up routine. I plan to be switching these products over with some of my others in my stash in a month or two. I also intend to replace the used up products with natural and vegan friendly options.
All the Inika products mentioned are Natural and Vegan, just in case you were wondering 🙂
