Pan Porn. What the Hell is it?

I thought my friend was crazy when she brought up her obsession with looking at pan porn. To the naked ear, it sounds like some sort of weird porn fetish with pots and pans, but nope. It’s just a new trend in the beauty word.
Pan Porn: make-up that has been used up until you see the bottom of the pan, giving you that oh-so-sweet satisfaction.
Get it? Pan… Porn?
Anyways, there are lots of articles, listicles and galleries of things that make us feel GOOD.  Like perfectly lined up pencil crayons, book shelves that look just so, or when you walk into a store and it has had a FINE job being ‘faced’ the night before.
Facing: bringing up the product so it aligns perfectly on the shelf and gives that look of oh-so-beautiful organization and perfection. 
Intrigued, I got my friend to show me pictures of some beautiful pan porn, and I have to say, it really is satisfying to see. The most satisfying part? That people are using what they already have instead of going out and buying new palettes and what-have-you. A challenge that could take some people years to reach, these pan porners are (supposedly) buying less. It’s even sparked creativity in a lot of pan porn stars (I mean…) in using a lot of shades that would normally be ignored. While I never knew that this was a trend until recently, I have been doing this for years because, well, I’m cheap when it comes to make-up. And, Naked Palette’s run just under $70! For one palette! I’d rather spend that money elsewhere, or look at it in my account.
Pan porn falls in line with the trend of living minimally, environmentally friendly, and buying mindfully. Of course, not everyone wants to live in a Tiny House and only eat vegan, plus they want to look good like perfection. Make-up trends have been on the rise. You only need to look at peoples’ brows and expertly contoured faces to know that every 12-year old and her mom own every single item Tarte has put out. Which leads to even more mass consumption. It doesn’t matter what you’ve started doing, every little bit helps in the fight to live a more environmentally-friendly life. And, if it saves you money? Well, who wouldn’t want to be on board?
A couple of great places to view pan porn that ISN’T labeled nsfw (guys, googling pan porn will still get pornhub right top and center. No judgment if that’s where you end up):
Reddit– filled with photos and comments of people oohhing and aahhing over hitting pan.
Instagram – follow the hashtag into pan bliss
My own Pan Porn:

I wonder if I get more street cred for my bronzer being broken in two?
