When the beauty industry is experiencing a renaissance, it seems like there’s an endless supply of new and innovative ideas for packaging products. From high-fashion beauty boxes to everyday beauty bags, the cosmetic industry has been seeing a refreshment bowl of new designs, technology, and practices as it deals with explosive growth in the past few years. The cosmetics industry has also experienced a period of rapid growth over the last several years, and now more than ever before, manufacturing has become even more globalized—with many manufacturers now moving their production facilities and manufacturing operations outside of North America. Even though this book covers the entire world of beauty products, we will be focusing on one segment: makeup boxes. Makeup boxes have become an iconic part of American culture in recent years. There are many reasons for this:
Why is beauty product packaging so popular in America?
There are a few things to keep in mind before diving into the why of beauty product packaging in the U.S. The first and foremost, of course, is that the beauty industry is a global industry with a large presence in many different countries around the globe. The average American would barely realize that the box they were receiving contained products that might live in different lands, cultures, and periods entirely separate from their own. This poses no special problems for the beauty industry in the U.S as it deals with business growth and expansion, but overall, it could be a problem for retailers who may have to sell boxes that contain products from other countries. This issue is nothing compared to the issue of counterfeit goods.
How to make a custom makeup box
The beauty industry is incredibly flexible and adaptable. There are numerous ways to make a custom makeup box, and this article will be primarily focused on the manufacture of custom bags and beauty boxes, but you can see companies now also offering boxes with led lights, mirrors, and other features not found in standard beauty products. If you’re making a custom box, you’ll need to select a size and finish that will work best with your product range. You can choose from many different materials, including canvas, canvas board, and fabric. These types of boxes are typically made with a high-quality canvas that will last for years and look great with almost any skin tone.
The modern makeup box
The modern makeup box is, in many ways, the exact successor to the classic makeup box you’ve been holding in your mind since you were a kid. The only true difference is the addition of an organizer pocket and additional storage space. These are both easy-to-add-to-the-box-if-you-have-the-time-to-do-it-right features that make a real difference in the quality of the box and the buying experience. You’ll also likely want to pick a color that matches well with the walls and décor in your house. Decor can be added to a standard box, or if you choose to use a custom design, it can be added to the outside too. Raima Malhi/Digital Vision/ Getty Images
Why this matters: The future of beauty boxes
There are several benefits to making a custom makeup box, but the most impactful one is that it will ensure that your business is in tune with the ever-changing trends in beauty and makeup. You’ll be able to better serve your customers, be more advanced in your industry, and build brand equity and credibility among your peers. The trend of using high-end makeup products as bags has also seen a significant amount of advancement with recent cultural shifts. The advent of the internet, mobile devices, and social media have created a world in which anyone can create and share beauty products, and the trend of carrying large beauty products has become more widespread. This could mean that you’ll need to carry more items with you, but it also means that you’ll need to carry less of them.
Types of custom makeup boxes available in the United States
Most makeup bags come with a built-in organizational pocket that holds your makeup tools, a small mirror, and a microfiber towel when you’re ready to take a shower. However, if you’re looking for a more elevated level of functionality, you can often find makeup boxes with organizers that come with a separate pocket for accessories. These organizers are often made with a more luxurious fabric that will look great on the walls or as a decorative item in your home. These boxes are great for when you’re on the go and want to keep your essentials close by but don’t want to spend a lot of time looking for them. They should be able to hold a few items comfortably and be easily accessible when you need them.
Tips for designing and assembling your own
The key to successful customization is to select a fabric that speaks to your needs and desires. Some fabrics may have bits of color that you like better than others, so make sure you’re picking a fabric that fits your personality and will make your boxes pop out of the closet like a fashionista’s dream come true. For the outsides, you’ll want to go for a fabric that’s both inexpensive and easy to Machine Wash. This will let you invest in more customization without breaking the bank. It’s often cheaper to Machine Wash canvas bags than it is to Hand Wash.
The beauty industry is still young, and there are still a lot of questions and challenges ahead. We recently saw headlines about a new makeup box that could “open the doors to a new era of beauty,” but there are still a few questions and challenges that we need to tackle for the trend to move further. This will continue to be a challenging but essential industry for decades to come.
