Project Use them ALL Intro

From time to time, I find myself craving a makeup challenge- although I loathe overly restrictive ones. So, I think it's time to challenge myself once again to pull out palettes that are currently languishing in my Alex 9 Drawers.

About mid-May, I suddenly got the urge to start using all of my palettes again. That's where this project (Project Use them ALL) was born. I own way too much makeup for one person, and I'd like to really get to know what's in my collection.

Tomorrow the link for the official page tracking my progress will be live. As will some pictures to give you an idea what I'm working with!

Here's a peek into one of my now unorganized Alex  9 Drawer units with palettes that I need to use.

Yes, those are palettes without a home off to the side! It's in my best interest to get cracking on using these.

I'll post eye/face looks from time to time on my Instagram (@quirkybusyandbeautiful), so take a look.

For example, this is today's look!

I look forward to making my way through more than 150 palettes by 31 December. I hope you'll stick around for the ride with me.

Welcome Back....

I've been thinking about doing this for awhile, but this is the right time. I miss being able to write about items I'm testing out and sharing my opinions with the world. I don't miss feeling like there's a race to review, and I'm ok with being just me.

With that said, I'm going to start posting again. No, not every day. There will be different posts- empties, challenges, efforts to reduce the size of my collection. But Sunday Dreaming will be back.

I will be posting two of my ongoing projects in the coming days- Project Use them ALL and my Mission: 1000. I've been working on one for the past two weeks and the other since Jan 1. In the coming weeks, I hope to also share the items I'm working on using up this year. I've made some really great progress, including hitting pan on every pan of a 12-pan palette already!

So, here's to dipping my toes in.
