Ask a professional beauty worker what their most prized tool is in their job and the likely response would come back loud and clear: their beauty trolley. Now, you may be wondering, what is this wonderful sounding item and just why is so loved? The answer is that in the makeup and beauty industry, time really is money.
The key to why this type of beauty case is so loved is in the amount of styling products and accessories it can contain. It is not inconceivable for a beauty trolley to be able to hold all of a technician's tools in its case. It is made up of several pockets,handy compartments, and removable trays, with each having the possibility of holding a different type, color or shade of makeup. The ability of a trolley to organize these items effectively make it a no-brainer to own. Word of the advantages of beauty trolleys started to spread, so if you are looking to purchase a trolley for yourself there are several key factors to consider:
Getting a suitable size of beauty trolley should be one of the first considerations. Too large and you will be carrying around a lot of empty space, but if it's too small then you will have to change the trolleys contents depending on the client. This is not much better than using a regular cosmetic case, so why bother short-changing yourself?
Next, select the right kind of outer shell depending on how the case will be used - if you are only going to use it for light, personal work then a soft nylon or leather lining should be all that you need. On the other hand, selecting a hard-body case will give you more versatility when it comes to long distance travelling - an aluminum shell or plastic case should protect your case's contents while in enclosed luggage compartments or similar places. While the tougher protective cases are more expensive, the chances are that its contents are worth doubly so - or even more!
The last, but by no means least, factor to consider is the layout of the beauty trolley itself. The most popular models have many smaller drawers and compartments on the top, with deeper pockets at the base of the container. This will let you place all your commonly used items at the top where you can easily reach them, and the rarer items at the bottom - handily kept out of sight until that inevitable time when you need them.
Buying a beauty trolley or cosmetic case is simple really, but deciding what type matches your personal usage is a little bit trickier. If you want to make a good decision with long lasting benefits, consider all of the above facets first!
