Makeup Storage Ideas
Summertime in Pakistan is HOT! It’s no secret, when I walk outside to start my day, I start heating up immediately, and my makeup starts melting like a popsicle. At least I know I am going to end up in air conditioning at some point but all my cosmetics at home are just sitting there heating up in the inferno. The sheer thought makes me cringe, all my hard earned money literally melting away because the heat in Pakistan during the summer is unbearable. That’s why I have provided a solution to help store your makeup. Makeup storage is so necessary when wanting to conserve your makeup in this blistering heat. Take a look below on how I was able to rescue my cosmetics.
Always store in a cool/dark place – usually a closet will suffice but because heat in Karachi can hit 100 plus degrees we need to take it a bit further — the fridge. It has been proven by cosmetic chemists that if you place your opened skincare products and cosmetics into the refrigerator their shelf life will be extended. Extreme heat and sunlight changes the appearance and consistency of your makeup causing it to apply differently. Take for example nail polish, my mom has always stored hers in the fridge, she claimed that it didn’t get gooey that way and would apply much smoother for a longer time. I can attest to that now, all my precious polishes that I bought on Just4Girls go directly into the fridge now.
Online shopping is my favorite pastime. I can get my favorite cosmetics that way and not have to worry about getting out of the comfort of my own bed. With all the cosmetics that I have bought online at Just4Girls.pk, I want to make sure they last as long as possible. I recently purchased Ellen Tracy Eau De Parfum Spray; there are a lot of natural notes in this fragrance. The nemeses of fragrance are heat, air and sun; any reaction with these elements causes the smell to change and even become sour. Arranging your bottles by the window might be aesthetically pleasing and cute décor but it killing your perfumes on a daily basis.
If you have any take away from this blog post please, please, please place all your makeup, skincare, perfume, and nail polish in the fridge. If this seems like a hard task at least try to do it during the summer months, this way you will save money and the magic in your makeup!
