Gone are the days when all you needed was a simple foundation, some powder, mascara and lipstick. Now there is specific makeup for the evening, for dress-up, being casual, and work. Additionally, there is moisturizing creams, wrinkle reducing lotions and cover up makeup. There are different sized brushes and applicators, pencils and sticks. By design, and good marketing skills, the more makeup, accessories and lotions cosmetic companies manufacture, the more women are going to buy.
Most of these high-priced items end up at the bottom of deep drawers, or spread out all over the counter. What might start as organization quickly turns into a hunting-fest as you desperately search for that specific item that simply cannot be found in all the mass confusion that has become your makeup area. As a result of your disorganization, valuable time is lost every morning as you apply your cosmetics, as you try to head out to start your day.
As new makeup is purchased, it is usually just dumped on top of the older, slightly use makeup. Because of disorganization, the 'lost' makeup becomes expired and needs to be thrown away. This waste of money, time and energy could be avoided by simply investing in a quality well-built metal makeup case.
Many aluminum cosmetic cases are constructed with heavy gauged sides, reinforced corners, matching handles and quality latched locking mechanisms. They are crafted with multi-tiered shelves, dividers, hooks and deep storage areas. By simply opening up the lid, most of these cases have tiers that expand to display most of your cosmetics, giving you instant easy access.
By organizing all of your makeup items and accessories, in a small compact cosmetic case, allows you to organize and protect them. Because the case is made out of aluminum, with a tight seal once closed, your cosmetics are protected from the external elements such as humidity, heat, cold and sunlight. Keeping your cosmetics and accessories away from all excessive elements provides an environment where they will last longer and remain fresher. The savings you receive not having to throw out expired unused makeup offset the additional cost of the quality aluminum cosmetic cases.
Deciding on which aluminum makeup case is best suited for your needs is determined by the volume of cosmetics you have. Cosmetic cases come in small, medium and large size. The bigger cases typically have installed wheels to easily move the cart about. This allows you to pull your cosmetics up alongside you when getting ready, and then conveniently rolling it back to its storage area when you are finished applying your makeup.
You might consider getting a small makeup case if you travel a lot. Being able to take a small cosmetic case complete with all your needed makeup and accessories is a way to stay organized on the road. When deciding which case is best suited for your needs, consider an aluminum cosmetic case over plastic, vinyl or synthetic fiber cases they can easily dry up and crack.
