Shakeup Your Makeup: A fun way to keep things fresh and find new looks!

Sooo....I have a lot of palettes. There ARE people who have more than I do, but STILL, I have a lot.  They are a slice of happiness for me because I am always "re-discovering" palettes and it really is like I just got them.

Like many of you, I can get stuck in ruts.  Either I will stick with the same palette or the same basic look. That is okay some of the time, but I really do not expand or learn by doing the same old thing.

So, I have come up with a little game that helps keep things fresh. All you need are two glasses (or bags) and some scraps of paper.

One glass has all of my palettes written down on little scraps of paper.
One glass has tons of different looks (cat eye, smokey eye) and colors in it, which I add to as they occur to me.

So, when I am feeling like I have been being particularly lame or boring, or if I am just feeling a bit adventurous, I pluck one slip from each glass.  The combos range wildly, and it really nudges me to shop my stash and step out of my comfort zone. Plus, it's fun!

Obviously, you can substitute the glass for a bag (I am looking at you, Ipsy bags).  If you do try this, please comment and tell me about it, I would love to hear what your experiences are like. Also, owning up to all the palettes I own and my silly little game was a little embarrassing, so It would be nice to know that I have company. ;-)
