so… I’ve been brewing on this subject and all its variables for a long while and I had finally made up my mind regarding the approach I feel is the best for me. and it would make for great new video content for you, so everything was fine and dandy… all I had to do was an intro video about this… and it took me MONTHS to finally get something out that I thought vaguely encompassed all my thoughts on this subject. still cluttered with my rambles and lacking some details, but hey… at some point, I have to let it go.
it’s a chat about my relationship with the beauty industry, how it has evolved over the past decade, and how I’ve been feeling I need to do some changes and adjustments to rekindle my joy when it comes to both discovering and revisiting make up, to consolidate my collection, keeping what is really essential/joy-sparking in my drawers and very clear in my mind, to help me reign in my impulse purchases.
I want it to be a catalyst to sparkle new behaviours in my life for the long haul, so it will be a new series in my channel (don’t worry, I’ll keep doing all my empties, reviews and Up Close and Poresonals), having as main characters a mindful declutter of all my collection (friends, it’ll be open season to loot my stash!), several “second chances” episodes, revisiting products I’m not sure I know I want to get rid of; and repotting/de-panning into empty palettes products I know I want to keep for a while longer but without the clutter of keeping the clunky packaging.
I’m still undecided if I want to do a project pan, and I’d love to know how you’d go about something like that. The same about a videos on make up news/launches, with a strong “but let’s not get carried away and buy stuff” vibe…
for the time being, I’m not doing a no-buy, since I feel it would be too restrictive.
but who knows what the future holds?
