Product for make-up artists
Easing out activities and improving efficiency of Makeup artists by introducing a digital intervention
A smart brush holder that eases out certain tedious tasks involved while applying makeup.
Beauticians have an important role in Indian womens’ lives. The profession has been around for centuries now but their approaches still seem very traditional. Most tasks are very manual and need a lot of precision, time and effort. Hence i wanted to study the daily activities and tasks of these professionals and see if i could ease out a little bit of their tedious work related tasks.
It was observed that the tools that are used for application require a lot of maintenance and there is no proper method to do the same. Also they are a costly investment and need proper care for a long lasting life. Hence I decided to work on Makeup brushes and their maintenance. The major problems in this area occur at various stages

Beauty Spot is basically a brush holder that encourages basic hygiene of cleaning brushes before reuse. It comes with an easy spot cleaning console. It ensures that you dont lose any of your precious brushes by arranging them properly and making them rightly visible.
