I have been an enormous RuPaul's Drag Race fan for a long time and have also seen a couple of RuPaul's queens perform live. I haven't really had the time to review each series at a time but now that we're under a worldwide lock down, I figured I'd take the time to do so.
When it comes to hair care, I didn't really care too much about the products I was buying or what I was putting into my hair. I have frizzy, combination hair (curly and straight but more on the curly side) and never liked it growing up. I used to buy products that were two in one (like shampoos and conditioners), heavily scented and that have a bunch of chemicals in them that I couldn't pronounce. Now, I am making more conscious purchases when it comes to my hair.
I'm someone who very rarely wears makeup (I wasn't always like that). Way back when when I would wear a full face of makeup every day, I would accumulate so much makeup that it was overwhelming.
Let me start off by saying I have been a massive RuPaul's Drag Race fan and have seen every episode from every season as well as seen a couple of the Drag Race queens perform live. I've never taken the time to review the series season by season up until recently.
Over time, art has depicted history, changes in the world, society, economy, and emotion, amongst other things. As art is subjective and personal to us, the thought crosses my mind: “How does an art piece withstand time and still be appreciated in current time?” Art over time has depicted landscapes, moments in history, personal moments in our lives, and parts of different cultures, to name a few. Culture displayed in art is one of the most powerful results. Art and culture co-exist and work hand in hand, both positively and negatively. Art is a product of culture and culture is a product of art. Here is a bit of history on Jean-Michel Basquiat, why he's one of my favorite artists and why I consider his art to be timeless.
I was once someone who wore a full face of makeup every day and now I rarely wear makeup, maybe I'll wear a full face of makeup once a month to every two months. Now that I rarely wear makeup and look back at my collection, I have accumulated WAY too much makeup for one face. I can admit that in the past I bought into trends, collaborations with brands and artists I like and things with really cute packaging, things that made me feel great in the moment. Looking back, I'd say there's maybe 50% of products I either haven't used ever or very rarely touch, which looking at the bigger picture now seems very wasteful of my time, space and money. I hate wasting things and I knew I didn't want to throw out all of the products because of how much money I spent and I wanted get all the use out of my products so I knew I needed to find a solution. Then I discovered Project Pan.
