How to pack your makeup ready for removal

If you are a female and are planning on moving, your packing experience may be more daunting than a male’s packing experience. This is because we love to shop and therefore end up with too many belongings. This includes handbags, shoes and let us not forget about the makeup. Women love makeup and tend to buy everything that they can get their hands on. This means that packing can easily become a nightmare. So how exactly do you go about packing your makeup?

The first thing you need to do is to go through all of your makeup products. you can choose to grow through each box individually or lay out your makeup on your bed so that you can see all your items and get a perspective of how much makeup you really own.

How to pack your makeup ready for removal

It is now time to throw away anything that you do not use or want. Damaged products such as eye shadows or bronzers that are no good need to be thrown away. Mascaras and liquid eyeliners harbour a lot of bacteria so need to be thrown away after about six months. However, how many of us actually follow this principle? If you find mascaras and eyeliners that you purchased years ago, now is the perfect time to be throwing them away. Remember, moving is the perfect time to be de-cluttering and getting rid of all the products that were tossed aside.

Make sure that all the makeup you wish to pack has a lid that is secure or has a relevant cap, since you do not want a makeup explosion to happen during the move. Not only will it ruin your favourite products but you’ll also have to spend the extra time cleaning.

Make sure that you keep a few makeup items that you use on a daily basis on the side. This is so that you have makeup to apply until the day of the removal. It also means that you will not have to open your boxes regularly to get the required products out thus saving you time and effort.

Now it is time for you to start packing your items. Since makeup products are small and fragile, it is always recommended that you pack your items into small boxes and then pack the smaller boxes into a large box.

If you are packing products that are very fragile e.g. powders, bronzers etc. then you may find it advantageous to line the box with Styrofoam. Alternatively, you can wrap each product with bubble wrap individually before you pack it. This will provide your products with the additional protection that they require.

Pack alike items together. This means that all eye shadows should be packed together, all lipsticks together etc. Make sure that where possible, you neatly stack the makeup products on top of each other e.g. eye shadow.

Make sure that you seal and label each little box efficiently to avoid anything falling out during the removal stage.

When packing your smaller boxes into a large box, ensure that the biggest or heaviest boxes are placed at the bottom of the large box. This is to avoid any of your products becoming damaged.

Packing is a time consuming task that requires a lot of effort and determination. Packing makeup can be rather challenging since there are so many various products that need to be packed all varying in shapes and size. This can make the task of packing more difficult than packing clothes or boxes. However, these hints and tips should make your packing experience short and sweet.
