Applying eyeliner

A person without dexterity can still apply make-up

Description
An assistant places the eyeliner in the user's hand (photo 4). It sits between the index and long finger with her hand in a fist and rests between her thumb and index finger (photo 2). The user steadies her hand by leaning it against her cheek. She uses her other hand to hold on to the backrest to keep her balance (photo 3). She applies liner to her left eye with her left hand and switches hands for her right eye.

Authors comments
It was very important for the user to be able to apply make-up independently. She thought about it for a long time until she came up with the solution.
