Packaging Tip

Choosing the Right
Cosmetic Container

When choosing the right cosmetic, makeup or face paint container you should consider the manner in which the product will be dispensed.

If you are packaging a loose powder you should look for something that will aid in dispensing the product properly such as a sifter container or wide mouth jar. If you are using a brush for application you should make sure the container opening is large enough to accommodate the brush. A squeezable bottle or a container with a narrow neck could be ideal for packaging liquid makeup. If you are packaging a body glitter you may want to look for something that is clear rather than translucent so that you can vividly see the glitter’s true colors. You should also consider whether the consumer will be traveling with the container, and would want to look for something that is both conveniently sized and easy to use in transit.

Whichever container you decide to use for your product be sure to perform compatibility testing to ensure a good fit with the products ingredients and application.
