Can you imagine creating your own makeup from the comfort of your home? Well, that's precisely what 3D printer Mink is proposing. It gives you an online tutorial on how to instantaneously print out eyeshadow, lipstick and gloss in cream or powder form, and in any colours.

Just find a picture you like on the internet, transfer it onto Photoshop and press the ''Print'' button. The ink used in the printer is FDA approved and takes into account all the normal prerequisites for a make-up product: it’s durable, hypoallergenic and has a beautiful shine to it. 

Their aim is to attract teens, who are not yet loyal to one particular brand of makeup, and their marketing focuses on freedom of choice, the idea that we don’t need to stick to the colours the industry is telling us to wear. 

The manufacturers are promising to bring the product to the market in the second half of this year for $200, which is cheaper than a lot of makeup out there.
