Packing Up Your Makeup for a Move

If you know makeup, you know that when it comes time to move, throwing your array of lipsticks and fragile eye shadow palettes into a box isn’t going to cut it. Why spend all your money on quality products only to ruin them during a move? To avoid melted lipstick and broken eye shadow palettes, follow these make-up packing tips:

Use that leftover Movers Stretch Plastic Wrap

Losing a makeup brush or your foundation primer in transit would be upsetting! Use stretch wrap and wrap up your makeup organizers to keep your small makeup items contained.

Keep like items together

This rule goes for packing in general. Keep your like items together. For example, keep brushes with brushes, lipsticks with lipsticks, and so on. This will make it easier for you locate items when unpacking.

Pack with Bubble Wrap to keep palettes safe

Wrap your make-up palettes with bubble wrap to ensure their safe journey to your destination. The bubble wrap will cushion your items safely in the box.

Pack makeup separately from other items

To avoid accidents, such as stains and spill. Pack makeup in a separate box. Always put items such as liquid foundation, moisturizer and perfume in Ziploc bags. If these items leak or spill, your other items will be protected because of the Ziploc bag. Bubble Pouch Bags work well also!

Keep lipstick in a cooler place

Depending on when and where you are moving, the weather may not be your best friend. Items that are prone to melting such as lipstick should be packed in a cooler place.
