There are few things in the world that are more strenuous than packing to relocate. We've all entered the stage in a move where we're tempted to put it all in a box, tape it and get it done. But makeup is something that needs to be protected during a relocation, like crockery.
Cosmetics is an investment, and the last thing you want to do when you're going through moving boxes is to find that you need all new cosmetics because your foundation has spilled all over your makeup bag. In the future, you will be grateful for packing and unpacking your cosmetics properly. Here are some ideas for packing cosmetics for relocation.
Clean Out Your Collection
Moving is the ideal time to clean up your cosmetics collection. Did you guys know that an expiry date comes with most cosmetics? Usually, to ensure that it stays safe and effective, cosmetics can only be used for 6 months to 2 years. Any cosmetics that are dry, broken, or smells strange should be thrown away immediately.
Separate Your Everyday Cosmetics
Take out a tiny set of cosmetics that you simply can't survive without for a day or two. These cosmetics should remain in the car or plane with you while you're on the move. These products may be kept in a makeup bag, but while you're rushing and throwing your wallet or luggage around, during the stress of moving you don't want to accidentally break or spill your precious cosmetics.
Remove Hazardous Items
Moving companies can not allow you to pack flammable beauty items such as nail polish or removers, or alcohol-containing products such as perfume. Save the hassle and set these things aside to prepare the cosmetics you're personally going with.
Give an additional layer of protection to your open beauty products from leaking into other items. Take the top and squeeze carefully to extract excess air for liquid cosmetics. Then place a small piece of plastic wrap over the opening of the liquid and replace the lid tightly.
To provide protection against breakage and spill, add a bit of cotton padding or tissue between the cosmetics and lid for compacts such as blush, powder, and eye shadow.
Put them in Small Containers
Keep the new cosmetics in their original box. For other cosmetics that you don't use immediately, store them in tiny containers, such as jewelry and gift boxes. Fill in any holes to prevent cosmetics from slipping around with tissue paper, newspaper, or bubble wrap. Pack together identical cosmetics, seal the package with packing tape, and label the contents.
