Pan that Palette 2015

Recommended Posts

@@annatomical Thanks for the ideas.  One thing I have learned is to practice at home on the weekend first.  I tried something with the dark purple from Revealed 2 before work one morning.  I ended up having to go in to work like that because I didn't have time to change it.  With my black hair and pale complexion, I looked very Goth...

 

I couldn't agree more!

I am planning on doing this with my Urban Decay Naked Basics. I've already hit pan on 3 of the 6 shades so I might as well finish that bad boy up. I will report back with my progress and since I've already hit pan on half the palette, I will start thinking of another palette to pan after that one.

Great idea! I followed your advice and did that this weekend!

 

Yesterday I watched some tutorial videos on the palette I'm panning this year, and then I did 3 of the looks. I tried two that I felt safe with, and one that was out of my comfort zone. I realize that dark doesn't work for me, so the brown, black, and purple in my palette will be liner colors exclusively. That means I won't pan those very quickly, sadly.

 

Anyway, it was fun and helpful! I will try looking at more tutorials and practicing even more!

 

Do you ladies have any tips on blending matte shadows? I use UD's primer potion and they seem to stick to that and not blend out. When I don't use the primer, my eyeshadow blends better on my lids, but creases by the afternoon. I want to strike a balance. Should I just apply the primer in my crease and leave everything else alone?

I've taken to laying down primer, then covering my eye (Lid and crease) with a skin toned/off white eyeshadow before going in with color. Gives the primer something to stick to and makes other shadows blend so much more easily.

This is what I've been doing, too, and I've had no trouble with blending.  I'm using one of the UD primers.

I will be panning my nudetude palette next year with you guys!  I really need to get this palette out of my collection.

Welcome!

Yay! I started using my "2015 pan that palette" palette (Tarte Be Mattenificent) last week and I already have 1 really good daily go-to look using 4-5 colors out of it! I've actually also been wearing makeup every day of the week (except weekends) for the past week, so that's awesome! I mean, I like the fact that I feel comfortableish without makeup, but I've wanted to :

A) Look more put-together

B ) Use my makeup since I bought it

C) Actually develop some makeup skills so I'm good at using it rather than just buying it. ;)

 

I also revamped my makeup bag that I use on the daily. It's kind of awesome, I love how it's organized! I should snap a pic of it for the Monday Club! But anyway, my point is I put my 2015 PtP palette into it so I always have it on me.

 

I can't wait to make some more looks using it. I have my daily subtle look, but I want to come up with a few other looks as well, one more dramatic for 'night looks' and maybe one for umm... special occassions? I'm not sure... the problem with my palette is it doesn't have any shimmers- it's all matte, from the blush, shadows, to the liners. So I may need to bring with me a single of some kind of shimmery shade that I can bring into the mix.

 

Here's my palette at the 'start' of the project, and my first 'look' which is so subtle I don't know if you'll even be able to tell it's a 'look' :D

My 'starting point' at the beginning of this pan project!

 

In the spoiler below are some close-ups of the pans and my daily go-to look.

Close-up of liners in 'Dream in chocolate' and 'Don't stand black'.

My daily go-to subtle look. I used the sand and pink colors all over to create a good base to blend and cover up my veins.

Then I took a mix of the peach and taupe colors to define my crease and cover my slight hood. I used the taupe shade to define my lower lash line as well. I lined my eyes with the chocolate liner shade. I actually didn't use the blush... so I should probably get on that. Haha!

 

 

 

 

Everyone- don't forget to take 'before' pictures so you can track your progress!

So pretty!

This is a great idea!

 

I'll definitely join in on the 1st. I agree with A, B & C from @@eastofthesun

 

A- I'm starting a new job as a university professor. I will be the youngest on staff for the master's level program so I need to step up my game. Maybe I'll feel like I belong more if I look the part everyday!

 

B- I'm remarkably good at buying the stuff (somehow I'm Rouge @ Sephora??? How'd that happen?) but I only do a full face 3-4 times per week, and that's 2-3 days of minimal effort.

 

C- I'm told I'm difficult to buy for so as part of my effort to please my mother I requested new makeup brushes for Christmas. Hopefully the excitement will carry over and help with the overall goals of using my makeup to help feel more complete in my look.

 

As for which palette? I'm leaning towards going big- Too Faced Everything Nice, currently featured in my profile pic with my annoyingly (not) helpful cat who likes to sleep on top of anything I sit down for more 30 seconds.

 

Now if there were only a way I could work a MUT thread into making me excited to work off the stupid new computer with windows 8.1. If it involved makeup I know I'd be more willing to learn how to use the blooming thing... but it isn't happening. And there is no right-click to the mouse. I'm doomed! /end rant

Congrats on the new job!

This post actually inspired me to create an account just now here on MUT rather than just browsing.

 

I want to commit to the challenge and will be using my Nyx Champagne and Caviar neutral palette. I have had this for years and have already hit pan on 4 shades. My goal is to use it up except for 2 shades- the darkest brown and the black - due to them looking completely wrong on my super pale skin. I will consider it used up when I have difficulty getting color from the pans on to my brush. Along with this, I have another Nyx palette from the Runway collections - the Versus palette. Since I am not committing to two shades from the C&C palette, I will add 3 taupe-ish shades from the Versus palette that I need to pan in order to complete my challenge.

 

I really think posting to this thread will hold me accountable. Hopefully you don't mind a newbie participating.

Welcome, welcome! We're so glad you joined. We don't mind at all having a new person around, on the contrary- we are glad to have another person in this with us!

 

That's such a good point about the dark shades- my palette has 3 dark shades that I won't be able to use up. Maybe I should add in a few single eyeshadows to the mix to really round this out. Thanks for the ideas!

 

Don't forget, everyone, to take a 'before' photo of your palettes by January 1!! It's so nice to have updated photos to give you a really good feeling about finishing your palettes!

Welcome! I'm fairly new myself but you'll find that new or old, everyone here is super welcoming and friendly. I am very pale myself but have included as part of my own challenge to get some if my darker colors included in some of my looks. (Thanks for the push @@SneakyBurrito !) So a few makeup videos are now part of my evening routine as well as catching up on MUT. Definitely the reminder and encouragement I need. And, if I come out on the other side with an empty palette and more makeup skills, well... it'll be dangerous for my wallet!

I've been thinking about which palette I want to pan, and I've decided that instead of panning a premade palette I'm going to aim for panning on of my depotted ones. A while back I took a bunch of my drugstore/lower end singles and repressed them into a few little palettes I got on ebay. But I NEVER use them. They were just a fun project and are only sitting pretty in their case. Since I know I'll never reach for them on my own, I'm just going to make myself do it by focusing on panning. 

 

Granted, When I re-pressed these I didn't take all the product out of the original pan, just what I could successfully press into the ones that came in the palette. I am also reserving the right to toss anything I don't think works. No sense in panning a shade I hate or doesn't show up if I have so many other choices of better shadows to use. Life is too short to use medicore pigmentation!

 

I'll add my pictures tonight, but I started today and I'm pretty happy with all the shadows I used so maybe this will be an eyeopening challenge for me!

 

Question: On the topic of YouTube project panners, who are your favorites? I've been watching a lot of PrettyPistol86 and she is soooo inspiring, especially when it comes to lipsticks. In a recent vid of hers she showed her progress on Mac's Soft and Gentle and I was amazed. I don't think I will ever make it to the end of mine.

I recently got a 9 pan palette from Red Apple Lipstick and I'm thinking about using that. The shadows are nice but there is some fallout and they don't blend as easily as some of my others. I want to move towards shopping with smaller companies that use safer ingredients though. Maybe I can learn how to work with the shadows more easily this year if I practice.

I didn't know there was such a thing as YouTube panners. I will have to look them up. I would love to here about more. That way I could still get my YouTube beauty fix while still encouraging me in my goal.

Same here! I was so excited when I saw how many were out there. I've also been watching StrwberrySweet and GlamourWithGrace, but PrettyPistol86 is by far my favorite.

Here is my palette today. The Nyx Champagne and Caviar palette (the 10 shadows you see at the top) is the palette I'm panning. I'm using up all but the black and the darkest brown since they look awful on my super pale skin. To compensate for this, I'm adding the 3 lightest shades from the Versus palette (the 10 shadows at the bottom). So that is 11 shadows that must be finished in order to complete this challenge.

 

I'm wearing two today, so I've got a start!

Here's my starting photo. All Red Apple Lipstick shadows and they're almost brand new. I've used 7 of them 1-2 times each and the other 2 are still unused. My goal is to try and hit pan on all of them, but really I just want to wear eyeshadow more so I'll be happy with any visible progress. I'm also hoping that by focusing on this palette I'll learn how to work with these shadows better because they're a different formula than I'm used to.

Beautiful palettes, everyone! I really love all those colors! I kind of wish mine had a shimmer or two in it. Oh well, I'm going to try to add in a single shimmer eyeshadow to my palette in the place of that purple/black/brown because I know I won't hit pan on those.

I sadly don't have a picture of my palette (mua heaven and earth), but I have hit small pan on two of the twelve shades. I have been using my palette since this fall, and if you want to see what it looked like a month ago there is a picture in the project pan thread :) I will be better at taking photos though because I love showing and watching all the progress se make. I wonder how many pans we will hit all together this year! :D

Here are the pics of mine! I know it looks like a lot, but like I said, I'm more looking to figure out if any of these are worth using, so I'm reserving the right to trash any that are...well, trash.

 

Edit: And can I just say I love that you can see the impression of the quarter I used to press these with? Even through the tissue it kept the image!

    • Have you heard about the Beauty DNA test?  Isn't anything new to you? I discovered one of the beauty articles talking about Beauty DNA test. It said a  test could customise a skincare routine based on our Genetic ( sounds personal in my opinion )   I did   order a kit online.  ( many companies offer the test) ,and my package is on its way.   I will give you guys an update soon about how I do the test and what results I  get. Anyway, If some of you have tried the test yourself, please share with me. Thank You
