How to Choose Aluminum Makeup Cases

By: Shannon Hilson

Makeup cases have been around for so long, you shouldn't have to make a big deal about choosing one, should you? By now, all the manufacturers should have them down cold. Why should you have to worry about the design and construction of the case? Because there are a lot of very poorly made aluminum makeup cases on the market, that's why. Don't be deceived: just because an aluminum cosmetics case looks nice doesn't mean that it's a good one. Take some time to study the case and think about what you need it for before you buy. Then you will buy the best one for your needs.

Sure, you want your case to look chic and stylish, but that's not all you want. You want it to do the job you're buying it for, too. The only way to be sure you're buying the right case for your needs is to first take all of your makeup and spread it out on your bed. Don't leave anything behind. Now imagine sorting it all out and placing it neatly inside of your new aluminum makeup case. Will it all fit in and still be easy to find when you need it? What about after you've shut the case and run to catch a cab? Will it stay where you put it after the case has been "shaken and stirred" on your way to work?

Why are you buying a new aluminum makeup case? Is it because doing makeup is your job? A professional needs a different style of makeup case. If you travel a lot, you need a special travel case that holds all of your makeup and makes it all easy to find. If that sounds like you, you might want to consider buying a larger professional expandable case to take with you when you're flying OS and another smaller case for taking with you to work.

After you have thought about everything you need inside of your aluminum cosmetic case, close the lid and take a look at the case's exterior. Just as you don't buy a new handbag simply because it will hold all your stuff, you don't want to buy just any old aluminum makeup case. Aside from its surface appearance, you need to take a closer look.

You will easily be able to find a good looking aluminum makeup case. Brushed aluminum and pink are two all-time favorites and you can't go wrong with them. However, some of these cases are very cheaply put together and you can tell if you take a close look at the hinges and the joints. Also, don't forget about security. Turn your back for a second and that designer lipstick you just bought could be gone. It's not likely that anyone is going to steal your entire case right from under your nose, but a lipstick or perfume is just too tempting. Get an aluminum makeup case with a lock on it and you won't be "loosing" your expensive makeup anymore.

As you can see, buying an aluminum makeup case just because you see a big "Sale" sticker on it can be a mistake. It shouldn't be an impulse buy. Think about everything before you decide to buy. Then you won't make any mistakes. You'll be in for a pleasant surprise when you discover that even the best ones are very reasonably priced.
