From Tommy Hilfiger announcing it was going to start designing clothes for people with disabilities to high-street giants River Island celebrating diversity and using models diagnosed with various conditions including Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy and eyesight issues to front their latest campaign, the fashion world is (very) slowly starting to cater to people with disabilities. But what of the beauty world?
Make-up is an art that requires precision and a serious amount of patience, and those living with a disability or condition that affects mobility and motor skills often can’t operate mascara wands and liquid eyeliners like the rest of the world – until now.
Grace Beauty has created innovative attachments to aid grip and improve people’s overall experience with using make-up appliances. The UK brand has launched a trio of products – all mascaras with very different handles.
“Anyone, regardless of ability, should be able to use any beauty product they want to,” they write on their website. “To help this cause, we’re making accessories for people with disabilities. Starting with mascara, we created add-ons for better grip, control and safety.”
The best part? If you don’t way to stray from your favourite formula, don’t fear. The wand grips have been designed to fit on any mascara tube.
Although the products are only available for pre-order at the moment, they each retail for £8 (approximately Dhs40) and are available for worldwide shipping.
