When applying make–up, specifically to the upper face and eyes, it is important that the make–up is applied as accurately and controlled as possible without smudging. People who use make–up regularly or apply make–up professionally know about the characteristics of make–up. Even the smallest particles of eye shadow or mascara can have negative effects on the result. Applying kohl pencil evenly and symmetrically is an art form of its own. Self–adhering, even after applying base make–up, the premium cosmetic make–up accessory Silcopad prevents particles of eye shadow and mascara from contacting and adhering to unwanted areas of the face of the subject. Silcopad adheres to the skin in such a way, that when it is removed, it will not remove any previously applied make–up. Silcopad may also be used as a stencil for the lower eye line for better control and perfect results.
