What's a girl got to do when I have a tight budget though I have a huge huge huge hunger for makeup?
I've thought of a new way to curb my appetite and finally finish everything up!
For almost every product I have, I am putting a 'bait' on it just so I'd always use the product and finally finish it up. The 'bait' is another product that I'm lemming for.
I wanted to do 10 pan projects but the task seems so huge that I lack the initiative. At least I'm breaking it down by placing a carrot on my view and trying my best to run and chase that carrot, I'm actually finishing up a product and finally replace it with a new one that I'm lemming for!
The last thing I want is makeup tucked away unused but I really have a big appetite with makeup, it just doesn't show because I'm controlling and moderating my appetite for my wallet's sake. Money is hard to earn and we should live within our means, we would probably accumulate a lot of products we can't use up after a couple of months, so instead of buying new stuffs, why not just use everything we have up before buying another new one?
Here's a list of products I have and the bait:
Products I have = Bait
MAC lipstick in Sweetie = MAC lipstick in Cyndi
Shu Uemura lipstick PK308 = Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Phoenix
Shu Uemura lipstick RD170 = Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Dragon
L'oreal Blush Delicieux in Fresh Papaya = Benefit CORALista
L'oreal Blush Delicieux in Rosy Cheeks = Anna Sui Face Color Accent
Jill Stuart Moist Silk Liquid Foundation = Shu Uemura Face Architect Smoothing Fluid Foundation/ Anna Sui Liquid Foundation
Shu Uemura Pro Concealer = MAC or MUFE concealer
Urban Decay Primer Potion = MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
Hope this method works! So far I'm using my MAC lipstick in Sweetie and Shu Uemura lipstick RD170 more often... In line with this project I've posted this 'Bait List' beside my blog, hope it works coz I'm really looking hard at my list. I'm thinking of putting the bait list on a Post It and stick it on my dresser's mirror so every time I'd do my make-up I would be reminded of the things I want to buy and the list of things I have to finish before buying new ones.
Wish me luck! <3
