We all struggle to apply mascara without poking ourselves in the eye, or avoid getting lipstick on our chin. And don’t even get us started on winged eyeliner.
However, for many, the beauty products found on high street shelves are just not accessible, meaning they don’t have the choice about whether to wear make up or not.
Grace Beauty is a new beauty company, striving to ensure make up is accessible to all. The products are especially helpful for those who have arthritis, Parkinson’s or cerebral palsy.
Currently in the early stages of production, Grace Beauty will start off by selling mascara wand grips with different types of adaptations, depending on your needs.
All grips are £8 and can be attached to any mainstream or high street brand of mascara to assist with application.
The Ring Grip enables users to have a looser grip on the wand, and ensures you don’t lose grip when applying.
The Square Grip makes it easier to control mascara application and also helps with opening and closing the bottle.
The Safe Grip also assists with control and gives users a wide angled grip, making application considerably easier.
Mascara is only the first product on Grace Beauty’s long list of accessible make up adaptations. The company is set to launch later this year, and we can’t wait to see what else they have planned.
Of course, no one is saying you have to wear make up to look beautiful: we are all glorious human beings with, or without, make up.
But you should be able to wear make up if you want to, and Grace Beauty is taking the steps necessary to ensure the beauty industry is inclusive of all.I
