Not that I'm belittling a girl for her skill, but I'm irked by the news and media.

Everyone, meet Makpal Abdrazakova, the former "lone female eagle hunter".  It's wonderful that Ashol-Pan is being showcased for her talent. However, let's not forget the woman who has ten years and more of experience under her belt handling golden eagles in a society opposed to women doing so.

She's breaking barriers left and right in her culture, so can we just take a moment to appreciate that before going on a share spree about a little girl following in her footsteps, unknowingly?

â�œEagle hunting in my family began with my father, Murat, who learned the traditions from elders in Almaty region,â� said Makpal, who became involved at the age of 13.

For the average shopper, makeup typically comes from mass outlet stores like Wal-Mart, CVS, Target, and on occasions, Sephora. Ulta Beauty is also another retailer people shop at for their beauty essential needs through enticement coupons and promotional sales. What if you could take a picture of someone wearing a color of eye shadow, foundation, or even lipstick you wanted to wear without having to hunt for it in-store? What if you couldn't wear a particular brand due to allergies or simply because they were too expensive? You might have to give up on the hunt, but times are changing.

New technologies are being developed every day and today I'd like to spread the word about Mink. This 3D Makeup Printer was developed by Grace Choi, a graduate of Harvard Business School, to target precisely those people I've referenced. Her age market is younger female clients from the age range of 13 to 21, which doesn't seem reasonable given her device will cost around $300.00. However, I can easily see it becoming a Christmas or birthday gift for a young adult that could be shared with her friends, siblings, and even her mother. Or the other way around.

Choi gives women the ability to take control of their beauty trends by promoting a sense of empowerment. We no longer will have to rely on the manufacturing companies of big brand names to produce those seasonal colors we can only find during specific times of the year or even those limited edition colors most often sold out after a few weeks of being on the shelves. We will no longer be captive to the retail market which forces us to cater to their determination of what is fashionable and when.

I can see a few things appearing in the market about this which would be interesting to delve further into, such as copyrights and patents. Will the future make it illegal for Mink to use a "limited edition" color produced by, say, Urban Decay? It opens a new world of thinking and I'm very excited to see where Grace Choi, serial designer, goes with Mink.
