How to Choose the Best Makeup Case for Professionals

How to Choose the Best Makeup Case for Professionals

When you’re a makeup artist that has to travel to clients, the only solution is a professional makeup case that keeps all your cosmetics in one place and makes them portable. Store your cherished products properly when you’re on the road (or in the sky!) and reach new levels of organisation that will make your job so much easier!

Are you on the hunt for your first makeup case? Maybe your cosmetics collection is outgrowing your current case and you’re looking for an upgrade? Either way, our guide will ensure you ask all the right questions before finding your new travel and beauty companion, for professionals that want the best makeup case.

Does the case have wheels?

This is a no-brainer. We know the Étoile Collective community has a never-ending stash of makeup and when you’re heading to meet a client, carrying it all yourself isn’t feasible. Make sure you buy a case with smooth-running wheels and a pull-up handle for easier transport when you’re running to catch a flight!

Does the case have sufficient compartments?

Organisation is absolutely vital and a makeup case with just one large compartment won’t cut it. Your makeup will become a jumbled mess and you’ll never be able to find it - let alone the fact that this could damage your expensive products.

Be thorough when you’re researching potential new cases for your collection. Ideally, find one with separate, removable compartments that will allow you to compile “mini” makeup stashes that you can remove and take with you as necessary. If the removable bags or compartments come with clear windows - even better. Knowing exactly where each item is stored will ensure a more streamlined service for your clients and less of a headache for you.

Is the brand reputable?

There are heaps of knock-offs and low-quality products out there, so it’s important you do your research before you invest in a new beauty case. Luckily, in the digital age we’re living in, you can find out real reviews about a brand in just a few clicks.

Head to their Facebook reviews and Google reviews to get a balanced perspective of the quality of their products as well as their customer service. At Étoile Collective, we feature reviews from our beautiful customers on each product page, so you can feel confident you’re making the right decision when you buy from us.

Our ever-popular Pro Artist Trolley Travel Case consistently receives 5-star reviews, with customers calling it “PERFECT!”. With other glowing reviews saying “all my makeup fit perfectly, it’s secure and it’s durable” and that it “holds everything and is very light and transferable”, you can rely on this product when you need a superior makeup case.

Is it stylish?

Aesthetics are important, not just because it’s important that you love your case for years, but because it presents a more professional image to your clients. Choose a case with a durable and sleek exterior that will be resistant to scratches, bumps and stains.
