The beauty industry is an industry with no bounds, and is growing daily. Social media plays a massive factor in beauty products; there’s TikTok, InstagramFacebook, and many more. Apps like these encourage women to try different makeup styles and brands. Beauty products are not just makeup products for your face but for skin care as well such as perfumes, hair products, lotions, anti-aging creams, etc. There are even products aimed toward men, such as beard oils, body washes, and hair products. What do all these products have in common? They all have labels on them.

What you need to know when making cosmetic labels

It’s essential to label your products correctly. Properly labeled beauty products will make your customer aware of warnings and aware of the ingredients. Creative beauty labels can add attraction to your product, and if you are making homemade products, your cosmetic label can add professionalism while standing out. Below are a few ideas of what you need to know to make custom cosmetic labels:

Determine the size and shape of your cosmetic label

 You can order your custom beauty labels in dozens of sizes. What will your beauty labels be going on? A clear glass jar for body oil? Or a small, smooth plastic container for chapstick? Your label design and placements are based on your beauty product’s finished container. Whether your product is in a tube, a bottle, a container, or a spray bottle, Sticker Mountain allows you to order custom shapes and sizes that will fit your needs.

Determine your desired material

Material choice is crucial when customizing your beauty label because it depends on what environment your product will possibly be stored or used in and the contents of your products. An excellent multi-use choice would be waterproof material. Waterproof materials, such as any of our BOPP materials, would allow products to be used in areas with high moisture, like bathrooms. Waterproof labels will also be a great choice because if the product is oily and leaks or gets dropped in water, the label won’t budge!

It's time to design your custom cosmetic labels!

After determining what label material you need to use, it is time to create your custom beauty label design. Your label design must focus on your logo and the cosmetic product’s name and use. Other things that will need to focus on are:

Font sizes are necessary because when making your labels, the different sizes and fonts will represent different meanings. This also includes the font design as well, and if it is still readable at smaller sizes, and fits your branding.

The label colors are essential to making your product stand out from the others. Choose colors that go well together, such as different shades of blues, or those that are opposite on the color wheel to make an eye-catching pop, such as yellow and purple!

Your cosmetic labels will need to have ingredients listed, starting from the ingredients that make up the most percentage to the least percentage of your product. The ingredients will also include any warnings the user will need to know. Then you will have a small section that explains directions on how to use your product.

It’s critical to include the name and address of the manufacturer, packer, and distributer.

A website for the product should also be included on the label. If this information is not on your label, the FDA will consider it mislabeled. According to the FDA, here is what needs to be on your product labels (order may vary depending on container type:
