Title: Mascara application guard

Abstract: A Mascara Application Guard made of a hypoallergenic material such as silicone is presented. It has an irregular shape, and is about 109 mm long and about 52 mm wide. The guard has different sized curvatures to fit the different size of eyes found in human beings. At one end of the guard, a curvature of approximately 25 mm is used for persons having small sized eye sockets. At the opposite end of the guard a medium size curvature of approximately 32 mm is available for persons having medium sized eye sockets. A very large curvature is located perpendicular to the medium sized curvature. This larger curvature is approximately 34 mm in radius. Each of the three curvatures has a raised edge in order to facilitate its use. The guard is used by placing it underneath the lower eyelashes or on top of the upper eyelashes. Mascara may then be applied to the eyelashes. The guard prevents the mascara from also being deposited on the skin underneath the guard.
