Pan Roulette. Idea courtesy to YouTubers like Elle S, Alexandria Sjosten, Heather Warren and Rebecca Morgan.
‘Playing’ this takes away the dreary bit of project panning. I have taken categories off Elle S blog (check her out) but have only stuck to makeup items that suit my panning needs at the moment. I really need to use up my makeup.
Note: Skincare and Toiletries I research/curate before buying. I don’t buy multiples and empty before buying the next one.
Categories:Total number of categories I chose are 50. Items can belong to one or more categories which makes it real fun to pan when random categories come up.
At first glance it seems some categories seem redundant and the items against them, appearing multiple times looks like cheating. ‘ Why does YSL glossy lip appear as ‘a favourite’, as ‘something with a wand’ and ‘something I would recommend’, but honest to the Gods of Makeup it does work out !
It is a clever arrangement of categories. These beauty vloggers are geniuses ! My categories, items and my comments, in italics, beside some of them are as follows; Scroll down for some pictures.

So this is what I do, or rather this is how it is done. Set your parameters in the random number generator. For me it is 1 & 50. Then hit ‘generate’.
I chose to generate it 10 times. I don’t have the science of why 10 times but soon realised it gives a good amount for a full face.
All 10 random numbers that appear will form part of your make for that day, time, moment !
Try it ! It is fun.
