Accessible Beauty Products for Individuals With Disabilities
Brands are creating more accessible beauty products, which are great for those who have disabilities!
Beauty brands have started altering their strategy to include more accessible beauty products.
Our first accessible beauty product is a collection of five makeup brushes with easy-grip handles and bendable brush heads. While sometimes it’s difficult to get your tools to do the right thing, these brushes are perfect for people who have motor disabilities and/or poor eyesight, as they move whichever way you want them to go.
1. The Flex Collection by Kohl Kreatives
This is a collection of five makeup brushes with easy-grip handles and bendable brush heads. While sometimes it’s difficult to get your tools to do the right thing, these brushes are perfect for people who have motor disabilities and/or poor eyesight, as they move whichever way you want them to go.
2. Quick Flick Eyeliner Stamp
Winged eyeliner! We all love the way it looks, but we all hate putting it on. If you’re a person with a motor disability, this task can be next to impossible. Introducing the Quick Flick Eyeliner Stamp! Instead of steadying your hand to try to get two identical wings, simply stamp your wings on. There are individual tubes for the right and left sides, each equipped with one stamped end and one felt tip end. This product comes in three colors: Intense Black, Hot Fudge, and Green Envy, with the ability to choose between four different wing shapes.
3. Guide Beauty
This company was founded by Terri Bryant, a makeup artist who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. As she continued doing her clients' makeup, she noticed her own abilities dwindling, so she created Guide Beauty to redesign the way we apply our makeup. Guide Beauty products feature the “Guide Ring,” which allows you to keep your hand steady while applying your makeup. In addition, all of their products are vegan and cruelty-free!
4. NAKED2 Eyeshadow Palette by Urban Decay
This eyeshadow palette is especially friendly for people who have poor vision, as it features embossed lettering on the outside of the packaging, which is a very useful tactile marker for people who can’t see to be able to identify the product.
5. Shampoo and Conditioner by Herbal Essences
On the back of each Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner bottle, you’ll find sensory-enhanced markers to differentiate between the shampoo and conditioner. Stripes start with “s” and therefore indicate shampoo, and circles start with “c” and therefore indicate conditioner. This an extremely useful beauty product for people who are vision-impaired.
6. “Better Than Sex” Waterproof Mascara by Too Faced
This waterproof mascara tube features fake water droplets on the outside, whereas the original mascara has a smooth, matte finish on the outside. This tactile differentiation is so helpful to know which product you’re grabbing.
