Do you keep track of what looks you’ve created or worn? If so, how?

If I didn’t blog, I don’t think I would, but since I do, I keep track in a text file by date!

My most favorite looks, I write down what shadows I used in a notebook. Sometimes I get stumped on a look I should where when going out and don’t have a lot of time trying to figure one out from scratch.

Every day, I send a picture and description of my look (no matter how simple) to my sister, and she does the same. It’s a nice way to share a love of makeup when you live apart 🙂

I was just thinking about this yesterday! I have so many eyeshadows that I am going to start writing the combos down. I’m even going to note what I was wearing. I might even go so far as to create a spreadsheet. Yeah, I’m a Nerd.

I used to not, but now every once and awhile when I create something I like I’ll put it on my blog. I would get a lot of compliments on some of the looks i’ve created so I thought I should probably find a place to put them.

I often mean to and keep meaning to get a little booklet to keep in my bathroom and write down especially successful looks but I never actually do it because once I’m done, I’m usually rushing out to work (it’s one reason I used to like that “What We’re Wearing” feature…I could look back to looks I’d recalled and posted).

I never used to, but we went to Harry Potter world over Christmas and I went a bit overboard with my HP purchases. I got a really nice journal, but I have never once in my life kept a journal for more than a few days. I now use that journal as a “look journal”. If I do a look and really like it, then I will write down what and where I used things.

Nope. I’m starting to realize I need to keep better track of my products though lol. A lipstick and 3 lip liners have mysteriously grown legs and disappeared from my purse and vanity. It’s been driving me nuts!

Fancie, don’t worry – they are probably out having fun with my bottle of Clinique eye makeup remover. I decant that stuff into a smaller bottle to keep in my vanity but the large bottle has vanished and it’s such a bright, vivid aqua colour that I can’t understand how it can manage to hide!

Definitely my blog. XD It’s really helpful when trying to figure out how to recreate certain looks, since there are both photos, and I write down a step by step tutorial with each of my posts. If I don’t happen to do a post for my look though, it’s lost to the world.

When I’m just playing around in my makeup and I just so happen to throw together a combination I really like, I will save it in a note in my phone so I can repeat it in the near future.

No never kept track but if a look really works then I try to remember at least combinations that work. Notebook or face charts sound like a good idea.

With the blog I end up recording the makeups I do and the products used, which is cool in my opinion, shows my progress and I can repeat that makeup that I liked a lot.
The same with products. I love filming ~ favorites of the month, is a way to make a “rotation” and use all the makeup I have. I have a lot of makeup and if I don´t do these weekly changes, I always end up wearing the same things.

I kind of did when I used to blog, but sometimes I still could not remember some products or where I wore it. Now, I only remember those looks which were really outstanding and interesting.
