A Week in Makeup

VICO 3111 "A Week of Data" Assignment

The week of data project was assigned in John Grimwade’s VICO 3111 course. It was a broad assignment that required tracking a week’s worth of data on some topic, organizing the information, and then finding a way to visualize it in an infographic that displays the data in a way that’s easy to understand and draw conclusions from.

The Project

To document a week in makeup, I sat with my planner beside me each morning and wrote down what products I used and how long it took to apply them. I then researched the products to find how much each cost at retail value and how much use I’m able to get out of each product. I then calculated how much I spend on makeup each day.

The Products

The products I used during this week cost me a grand total of $84.75 retail value. Of course, many were bought on clearance or from outlets, so I saved a few dollars here and there. Hover over a product to learn more about it.
