My Personal Post-Editing Commandments

Well it's been a bit, hasn't it?

For the last little while I've been planning some posts concerning my favourite beauty products for Autumn. However, during my planning I got hit pretty hard with a virus/cold that's been going around Toronto. So, for example, swatching different lip colours on my lips didn't seem the wisest choice.

During my sickness though, I realized the importance of editing. I decided to really pare down my previously 'Top 10' lists to 'Top 5's. I found that while it can be nice to scroll through a blog post of lovely swatches, most of the products I put in were there more as just what I generally would wear rather than what my must-have, loved colours were. And, as I do tend to lean more towards the budget/drugstore end of the beauty world, I figured I'd keep the posts wallet-friendly for the time being.

So here's the rules I've given myself for future "Top __" posts for editing down to my favourites. If for no other reason I'm posting these for the sake of reminding myself to stick to them, and for reference when I write future posts.


1. Thou shall not include two products from the same line.
This is to ensure a variety of formulas, finishes, and brands. Two products can be from the same brand, though they may not be the same line.

2. When writing a seasonal post, if thou believes said product is better suited for a different season, said product shall not be included.

3. Products shall not exceed the price of $15 CAD.

4. Product must be currently available for purchase.

5. Products must be reasonably different from one another, whether that being by different colours, formulas, or finishes.

Before I go: a question for all my fellow bloggers. Especially those with a much larger makeup collection than myself, because I'm curious. If you write 'Top __' types of posts... how do you edit down to what your favourites are? Do you have a method for it, or just wing it?

Aside from that, whether you're a blogger or not... I hope you're having a wonderful day!

Stay sweet.
