In Brief

Could this be the beginning of at personal beauty manufacturing?

Continuous development in the field of 3D printing has raised the question of whether current manufacturing processes will change. If consumers can create products from their bedrooms what will this mean for all the people involved in the operation of product development such as designers, wholesalers and distribution center workers? A new 3D printer, designed for use at home is surely one of the first to switch things up and is enabling consumers to finally become the ‘makers.’

Named The Mink, this desktop printer, aimed primarily at women, has the ability to print makeup. It can transform any image or color using simple already-existing software from into a blush, eye shadow, lip gloss and more. Users can pick their product from any website, a Pinterest board perhaps or a simple image captured on a phone in the real world, then make their own in the privacy of their own home.
