What is the best way to store my beauty products?

Time keeping is a key factor in the mobile beauty industry, as running over on just one appointment can have a knock-on affect on your timetable for the rest of the day and cause inconvenience for both you and for your clients. It’s important that if you work in mobile beauty, that you are efficient in your tasks and not keep clients waiting for longer than necessary. And if your client has booked you for a wedding or other special occasion, you will want to prevent this at all costs.

The best place to start is by keeping organised and knowing exactly where everything is when you need it, and moreover, being able to identify if something is missing and might have been left at a previous client who lives on the other side of town.

But with most cosmetic cases that are currently on the market, it leaves make up and other items loose, causing them to move around which can cause damage, and leave you struggling to find that specific product that your client is desperate to try out.

So how can you organise your beauty tools and products to ensure that everything can be found easily, will look good as new and can help you be health and safety compliant whilst simultaneously keeping you organised and able to stick to a schedule?

We think that the best place to start is to have custom cut sections in your cosmetic case which will provide every one of your beauty items with a home. That way, everything will be secure during travel, and if your most expensive product is missing, you will be able to identify this before leaving your clients house. This is where Shadow Foam can help…

How can Shadow Foam be used in the mobile beauty industry?

It may not be obviously clear at first glance, but Shadow Foam can be a great and helpful addition to any cosmetic beauty case or even your own make up drawers at home!

Shadow Foam boards can be measured to fit any space where you keep your make up or hair products such as a cosmetic trolley and will help keep all items safe and secure which will be a huge benefit when moving about and rushing to your next appointment.

The shapes of your products are cut into the foam to create secure spaces for items such as make up brushes, nail polishes and lipsticks to be held into. It is also a great way to organise delicate make up items such as pressed powders, blushers and bronzers, so you can rest assured that they are still as good as new when it comes to showing them off to your clients.

Shadow Foam can also be a huge help to those working in hairdressing, as items such as scissors can be held securely in place during movement, preventing damage and protecting against potential injury if they have moved during travel. Shadow Foam is extremely sturdy, so you can rest assured that the scissors won’t damage the inlay whatsoever. Using Shadow Foam will also provide a clear view of what items you have and possibly what items may have gone missing during use, so having Shadow Foam in your cosmetic case will easily help you identify what you may have dropped or left somewhere which could be dangerous for your clients.

In terms of personal safety, it is also a great way to have a designated section for any items such as hand sanitisers and moisturisers. Regular use of these items can help to prevent against skin conditions such as dermatitis, which is a huge issue for those working in the beauty industry, specifically hair dressers. The separation of items can also help massively with regards to make up brushes and sponges, as they will be unlikely to build up bacteria and dirt from moving around and coming into contact with other items.

What are the benefits of using Shadow Foam for your beauty products?

As we can all agree, it is rather pleasant to look at, but what are the benefits of using Shadow Foam to secure your beauty products?

Organisation – If you know exactly where everything is, you are less likely to spend time looking for missing items. It will also save time from running back to your previous client when you realise that something is missing.

Timekeeping – Preventing the above will also make you more likely to run on time and be on time for every appointment. Keeping to schedule is one of the biggest problems faced by those working in the beauty industry, so finding a solution to this dilemma will be life saver.

Customer Satisfaction – When working in mobile beauty, you need to give your clients the best experience possible. So, having all your products laid out in front of them so they can see everything you have to offer and not having to wait around for a beauty therapist to dig around looking for a certain item. They should feel pampered when they leave, so make sure you’re not letting them sit around whilst you look for misplaced items.

Be at the forefront of a competitive industry – If you want to be the go-to beauty therapist or hairdresser in your area, you need something that makes you stand out above the rest. So, if you bring your products to your client presented nicely so that everything can be seen, people are bound to talk. And as the beauty industry relies almost solely on word of mouth, you need something for your clients to talk about!

Safety – For hairdressers in particular, Shadow Foam is a great way to keep scissors and other sharp items secure to prevent any nasty accidents. It is also a great way to store washing facilities such as hand gels and moisturisers to ensure the safety of both yourself and your clients.
