As many of you know- moving has been rough! Now that I’m finally here & finally almost unpacked…I thought maybe I’d share some of my tips for moving beauty products! Makeup & beauty items can be really expensive to move because many companies won’t move them or charge extra. I’m going to break down how I packed up my stuff safely! Which will save you some cash!
Nail polish is one of the hardest things to move long distances & most moving companies give you the head shake on it. This isn’t surprising because it can be tough to ship as well but it still really screws things up for us nail lovers! So how did I pack it considering my collection is…massive…& I can’t move them in an open shelf. I saved a bunch of empty beauty boxes & used them for my favorite polishes. I packed them very securely too- no wiggling! The next thing I did was use super thick socks to pack my other polishes into plastic bins. I stacked these in the bottom of book boxes with lightweight items on top. Were they heavy? You bet! But I only had 2 leak & none break!
This was one of my most exciting finds! I have a TON of makeup brushes & varying sizes & I had no idea how I was going to manage to move them without major damage. Makeup brushes can be finicky & really delicate. & expensive! I didn’t want to take any chances! I washed all of my brushes (wow that took forever!) & then separated them into similar uses for my own peace of mind. Then I used these handy brush slips that I found for an amazing price on Amazon. I’ve used some from more expensive brands but these are a steal! These help keep your bristles correct & I packed them into boxes so they would be safe. Worked like a charm! The brush guards also work great to hold their shape after you wash them!
Eyeshadows are some of my most valuable items- I mean they’re often limited edition! That makes them crazy hard to replace! So how did I pack them without breakage? Very carefully. I picked up some small plastic bins & used a mixture of foam & towels both on the bottom & on top. It took awhile to fit the palettes together like a puzzle to keep them safe & secure but it worked like a charm! I made sure they stayed somewhere they wouldn’t get damaged or rocked as well.
