How to store your naked vegan makeup
Love makeup but want to limit your plastic-packaged purchases? Here at Lush we’re heading towards a naked revolution! Check out these storage solutions to keep your naked vegan makeup looking as good as new.
With the help of five staff members from our makeup talent pool, we’ve put together a helpful list of creative ways you can store your naked makeup to keep them pretty and pristine...
Thinking inside the box
Asiyah, from Lush Cribbs Causeway, keeps her naked makeup in the parcel box it arrives in: “I really like that I can purchase a product where even the packaging can be disposed of responsibly” she says.
Not only does Asiyah love being able to extend her ethics into her love of makeup without compromise, she also states: “I really enjoy the quality of the products, which goes to show that vegan makeup can still be of a high standard”.
It does what it says on the tin!
Laila loves the zero-waste benefits of buying naked makeup: “It’s great to have a product that you can use 100% of. We get what we pay for, with no excess packaging, and no waste” she says.
You can dish it out…
Suzie, from Lush Buchanan street, gets creative with her storage options. She loves having her naked makeup displayed on a dish on her dressing table where it’s at hand and means the cardboard boxes they come in are reserved for travel.
When talking about the benefits of naked makeup, Suzie shares: “I’d never really sat and thought about how much waste there in the beauty industry! It’s an amazing way to cut down on packaging, and it’s allowed me to get creative with applications and storage, my eyes have been opened!”.
On the tiles
Having her makeup to hand is something that Paige also considers when storing her naked makeup. She pops hers onto a small decorative tile or into a pick ‘n’ mix box, made out of recycled materials, so it’s easy to grab and use quickly: “It looks really lovely next to my mirror and, as I wear makeup every day, it means I don’t have to spend time putting the makeup away each morning” she says.
A benefit of naked makeup is being able to see exactly what you’re going to get, Paige explains: “I want to know what I’m paying for, and once it’s finished, it’s all gone! There’s no excess packaging that will take 500 years to decompose.”
Raise your glass (trays)
Emma loves to store her naked makeup on a little glass or metal tray on her vanity so that she can always have it on display and closeby to pick up and use whenever she needs.
A pastime of hers is visiting charity shops in search of new vintage plates or trays to use. Emma’s favourite thing about having the option to buy naked makeup is the benefit to the planet: “Knowing that I am helping avoid adding more plastic into the ocean is very rewarding to me!”
