How many times have we seen that shocking Instagram story where a brand new bottle of foundation has smashed all over the floor? It’s hearbreaking to watch, and quite frankly I now have some sort of crazy phobia that it will happen to me. I move about a lot, as my Instagram locations can tell you better than I can no doubt, so I thought I’d share my top tips for moving your makeup safely.
Store products with similar products
Pack your lipglosses and lipsticks together, nail varnishes, palettes and flatter products together to maximise use of your space.
Get lots and lots of bubble wrap
Bubble-wrapped postage bags are really handy (you can get 3 for £1 in poundland which are fab!) and you can save boxes from online orders and subscriptions which are generally quite strong.
Sellotape lids closed
Secure those lids on all your nail varnishes and liquid makeup. It seems like a pain but avoids leakage which is even more of a disaster when it happens. I don’t wanna see casualties in your stories!
Newspaper is good for absorbtion
Lining every box with newspaper or kitchen roll is one of the best top tips when moving your makeup safely. It will stop them falling apart if it does leak without damaging the rest of your goodies. Keep your regular makeup in a travel bag and don’t pack it until last minute. Also, keep your brushes safe by wrapping them in newspaper or by keeping them in specialist brush bags/cases.
Clean everything while you pack
– it will make unpacking easier and far more enjoyable once you get to your destination!
Extra tip: don’t let your child have your makeup brushes! They will be returned wet 🤣
