Don’t know how to pack makeup for moving? Moving with your makeup might be stressing you out because you don’t know how to pack your beauty products properly without the chance of them breaking or getting damaged. But you don’t have to throw your investment away and neither should it get damaged just because you are moving. Below are ways to help you pack your makeup so that it can stay safe and intact when moving.
How to Pack Makeup for Moving
When looking for ways to know how to pack makeup for moving, be sure to separate liquids, protect your pressed powders, and more.
1. Clean Out Your Drawer
Before you start packing your makeup, you must first clear out the makeup drawer. You should get rid of all the expired products and those that are close to their expiry date. These dates are indicated at the bottom of the packaging containers. Clearing out these products will save you the stress of packaging products that you might not use. This also goes for the rest of your home, so that you downsize it before a big move.
2. Set Apart What You Need Regularly
There are some products that you use on a daily basis. You will need to separate them from those you use only on special occasions. Pack those you use regularly in places you can easily access like in your cosmetics travel back so that you won’t need to unpack a whole box in order to retrieve them. You can pack the rest in other boxes.
3. Separate Liquids
To prevent the liquids from spilling, you must cover the bottle openings with plastic wraps before sealing with a bottle cap. This makes the seal even tighter and prevents leaks. You might also consider putting the bottles separately in a zip bag.
4. Protect the Pressed Powders
Pressed powders like eye shadow can easily break and become a mess if not properly packed. To prevent pressed powders from breaking you can place cotton pads between the pressed powder and lid. This adds some cushion and helps in keeping the powder in place.
5. Pack in Small Boxes
Use small boxes like the jewelry cases or other boxes you may have to pack your makeup. These boxes should be clean and properly labeled with the makeup products that you put inside. You should also cover the top of these boxes using bubble wrap.
6. Fill Spaces with Bubble Wrap
After packing your makeup in drawers, spaces may remain between the makeup and the makeup drawers. Ensure you fill these large spaces using bubble. This will ensure your makeup is tightly packed in order to prevent any back and forth movement which may damage your makeup during transit. You can then close the drawers and tape them with packing tape to keep them closed.
7. Check that Every Product is Well Packed
Finally, you need to double check that everything is packed and well labeled. Also, ensure that your makeup products are in one place. This will make it easier to unpack once you reach your destination.
That’s how to pack your makeup for moving. Your makeup is an expensive investment that needs to be protected when moving. You should now have a peace of mind as you move your next destination with your makeup products.
