Description
The user places the blusher brush between her thumb and index finger and between the tips of her index and long fingers. The blusher container is on her lap. She leans her hand against her cheek to hold it steady. She uses her other hand to hold on to the backrest to keep her balance. She does the left side with her left hand and switches hands for the right side.

Users comments
It was very important for the user to be able to apply make-up by herself. She thought about it for a long time until she came up with the solution. At first she thought the blusher brush was too awkward, but it works well.
