Designing Cosmetic Stands for Cosmetic Renders

Table of Contents


In particular, cosmetic and beauty supply retailers rely heavily on retail display stands. Cosmetic display stands are retail fixtures used to showcase and market cosmetics; they typically consist of a freestanding structure with many levels of shelving, retail racks, and promotional displays. It has a lovely form and design that will bring in customers from far and wide.

A large cosmetics store display may have a rounded, square, or organic shape, including one or two sets of display shelves. Wood, plywood, MDF, tempered glass, transparent acrylic, and wood laminations are some of the materials used to construct sleek counters in today’s high-end beauty boutiques. Most retail stores strategically position their display stands in the center of the store, where they not only serve as a stand for show but also enhance the aesthetics of the store’s interior and the shopping experience of its patrons.

Here you will find beautifully crafted and expertly finished cosmetic display stands made of wood. When it comes to cosmetics displays, Ant Display has been at the forefront of the commercial furniture industry for quite some time.

Hints for the Creation of Cosmetics Stands

  • Intended audience:

Knowing your intended audience is essential before you begin designing the packaging for a product. In the consumer marketplace, different goods appeal to specific groups of people. A packaging design for a cosmetics line aimed towards teenage girls is unlikely to entice middle-aged ladies and vice versa. Once you know who you’re selling to, it’s time to investigate what products are currently popular and which design aspects are most apparent on their stand.

Tin or glass containers, collapsible tubes, pump bottles, spray bottles, dropper bottles, etc., are standard packaging options for cosmetics. Many other forms and varieties can exist, though. The most optimal design ensures the customer can access and utilize all of the contents in a sanitary and effective manner.

  • Corporate Persona:

Packaging is all about conveying the right message to customers so they can better relate to your brand. Although there is a large market for high-end cosmetics, many shoppers prioritize brands perceived as accessible, eco-friendly, natural, or time-saving. Designing your company’s packaging is a great way to promote its brand. How a product is stand will always affect how consumers view the firm that produced the item. Companies that are large enough to diversify their product lines sometimes employ various stand designs for each of their product lines, even if they all share the same brand name.

  • Market and Distribution Plan:

Think about the environments where your ideal customers will most likely come across your goods. Design strategies won’t vary greatly depending on whether a product is offered online, in a tiny boutique, or at many shops, yet, standing out from the crowd is still essential. Products with eye-catching packaging designs are more likely to be purchased when placed on store shelves. However, the clientele of a tiny boutique tends to be more discerning and trend-conscious. Subtle nuances and an understated approach are more likely to be successful than a daring design.

  • Multiple Product Packaging Layers:

Since there are three levels of packaging to think about when designing cosmetics, you may need to come up with three different concepts for a single product.

  • Choices for Printing:

Some of the most widely used printing processes for packaging include lithography, flexography, digital, rotogravure, and silkscreen. While each printing method has its benefits and drawbacks, digital printing is frequently seen as the ideal solution because it balances low cost with quick turnaround and high quality. Laser etching can be used creatively in various mediums, including metal, wood, and glass. This strategy will be more expensive but is recommended for premium markets.

  • Materials:

Product kind and storage conditions should be your first considerations when packing material. Select packaging materials that extend the product’s shelf life without posing a contamination risk. The storage environment should also be taken into account. It is preferable to utilize water-resistant materials if buyers intend to store the product in the bathroom. The possibilities for the stand’s exterior and interior are practically endless.

  • Creators of Packaging Prototypes:

You can design your custom packaging. Many small business owners choose the do-it-yourself route to save money and have complete control. Creating for commercial purposes is very different from the kind of do-it-yourself projects in which the result is not for sale. You have put in a lot of time and money, yet there still needs to be an assurance that the result will be successful. Hiring professional freelance industrial designers and 3D modelling services professionals will help you reduce the risk associated with packaging design. Once it’s finished, you can decide whether to keep working with the same person/company or find a new source for mass production.

  • Typical Errors in Packaging Design:

While exploring the cosmetics industry, you could come across cosmetic product packaging designs that you find unappealing. Even worse, you may despise them because those stands are objectively unlikeable.

Some common mistakes in packaging for cosmetic items include:

  • There are no included instructions:

Indeed, many beauty products don’t require instructions because their names or labels make it obvious, but it still helps to have that information available.

  • Too harsh to open:

A tightly sealed container is the most excellent method for ensuring that a product remains undamaged and free of contamination during shipping and storage. It doesn’t mean the item should demand hard labor to be opened without making a mess. A primary seal can do the job without making it difficult to open and close the container.

  • Low-grade components:

Even if the cosmetics are reasonably affordable, purchasers want to take advantage of a drop. The packaging, and the container, must be robust enough to survive the occasional bump and drop. It must remain undamaged while stored inside a bag, purse, and other objects. To prevent spillage, the container shouldn’t unscrew or open too quickly.


The point is to have the box do double duty as an advertisement. To avoid confusion between products with similar-sounding brand names, consumers who promote things to their friends and family will include detailed descriptions of those products. They may contain information about the manufacturer or retailer and any brands within the product. With that in mind, it’s clear that having a distinctive, eye-catching packaging design can help increase product sales and awareness. People will remember the product’s appearance and be able to locate it in the store, even among thousands of other products. As an extension of the product itself, high-quality packaging conveys an image of professionalism and care to buyers.
