Description
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

(a) Technical Field of the Invention

The present invention relates to make-up applicator, and in particular, an electric applicator with various type of electrically operated components such as eye-lashes brush, etc.

(b) Description of the Prior Art

Recently, as a result of technology advancement, there are numbers of devices which function to provide a pleasant looking to females. In particular, to beautify the eyes of a lady is an important role for a beautician to enhance an attractive appearance on the face. Devices such as eye-lashes' cream and lashes applicators are both used to cause attractive of eyes.

Conventionally, eye-lashes cream is applied manually onto the lashes. The applicator has to be rotated constantly in order to enable the cream is evenly applied onto the lashes. However, it normally takes awhile to complete the process, accordingly it is an object of the present invention to provide an electric make-up applicator which allows the lashes cream to be applied conveniently and evenly.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The primary purpose of the present invention is to provide an electric make-up applicator having a rotating shaft and a power supply unit to provide power to a power unit. An electric make-up applicator comprising a body, mounted with a power unit, having a rotating shaft and a power supply unit to provide power to the power unit; and a tooling device mounted onto the rotating shaft and having a make-up tool; thereby, the power unit causes the tooling device to rotate so as to supplement make-up on the face of a user.

Still another object of the present invention is to provide a an electric make-up applicator, wherein the rotating shaft is engaged with the polygonal shaped tooling device, allowing the body to disengage with the tooling device and the rotating shaft drives the tooling device to rotate.

A further object of the present invention is to provide an electric make-up applicator, wherein the body is mounted with a direction-shifting switch to allow the tooling device to rotate in different direction.

Yet another object of the present invention is to provide an electric make-up applicator, wherein the body is mounted with a speed-regulating switch to allow the tooling device to regulate the speed of rotation.

Yet a further object of the present invention is to provide an electric make-up applicator, wherein the tooling device is replaced with a lens cap to cap the body when the body is separated from the tooling device.

The foregoing object and summary provide only a brief introduction to the present invention. To fully appreciate these and other objects of the present invention as well as the invention itself, all of which will become apparent to those skilled in the art, the following detailed description of the invention and the claims should be read in conjunction with the accompanying drawings. Throughout the specification and drawings identical reference numerals refer to identical or similar parts.

Many other advantages and features of the present invention will become manifest to those versed in the art upon making reference to the detailed description and the accompanying sheets of drawings in which a preferred structural embodiment incorporating the principles of the present invention is shown by way of illustrative example.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

The following descriptions are of exemplary embodiments only, and are not intended to limit the scope, applicability or configuration of the invention in any way. Rather, the following description provides a convenient illustration for implementing exemplary embodiments of the invention. Various changes to the described embodiments may be made in the function and arrangement of the elements described without departing from the scope of the invention as set forth in the appended claims.

Referring to FIGS. 1, 2 and 5, there is shown an electric lashes applicator comprising a body 10, a covering member 20 mounted of the body 10 for protection and aesthetic effect, a make-up tooling device 30 connected to the powered rotating shaft of the body, a cap 40 mounted on the tooling device 30 for protection and material storing, a lens-cover 50 mounted at the body 10. The body 10 of the applicator causes the tooling device 30 to rotate so as to supplement make-up on the face.

In accordance with the present invention, the body 10 is provided with a power unit 11 having a motor 12 mounted therein. The motor 12 has a shaft 121 which rotates. The cross-sectional view of the rotating shaft 121 is a rectangular shape, or a polygonal shape, and is provided with a pair of protrusions 122 corresponding to each other (only one protrusion has been shown). The external section of the body 10 is provided with a direction-shifting switch 13 and a speed regulation switch 14, such that the rotating shaft 121 will produce different rotating direction and various rotating speed. One end of the power unit 11 is provided with a power supply unit 15 to provide power to the power unit 11. The power supply unit 15 can be batteries 16, and the inner wall is provided with a protruded block 17. The protruded block 17 is engaged with a slot 18 of the power unit 11 so that the power supply unit 15 is engaged with the power unit 11 and is unloadable to replace the batteries 16.

The covering body 20 is moveably mounted to the external section of the body 10 which can protect the body 10. On the body 20, at an appropriate section, a notch 21 is provided so as to avoid the direction-shifting switch 13 and the speed regulating switch 14. The body 20 can be of any color, shape to provide a designed logo or mark so that the body 10 has an aesthetic appearance.

The tooling device 30 is mounted at the body 10 and in accordance with the present invention, the applicator is used as an eyelashes brush. Of course, in accordance with the present invention, other tooling device can be used. The body 10 is mounted with a brush body 31 so as to obtain eyelashes lotion. One end of the tooling device 30 has a seat body 32 and the external surface of the seat body 32 is provided with protruded threads 33 facilitating hand-grip and rotating. The tooling device 30 is provided with a connection hole 34 corresponding to the shape of the rotating shaft 121 for connection to allow rotating by the rotating shaft 121. There are two recesses 35 provided within the connection hole 34 such that when the connection hole 34 connects with the rotating shaft 121, the protrusion 122 can be engaged with the recesses 35. Thus, the tooling device 30 can be mounted to the body 10 and can also be easily unloaded.

The cap 40 is provided with a threaded section 41 and is secured to the seat body 32 of the tooling device 30 for protecting the tooling device 30 when it is not being used. The cap 40 has a storage space for storing mascara which is obtainable when the tooling device 30 is extended thereto.

The lens cap 50 has a lens body 51 and before the tooling device 30 is connected to the body 10, the lens cap 50 can be engaged with the body 10.

Referring to FIG. 3, there is shown a preferred embodiment on the application of the applicator on the eyelashes. The tooling device 31 with mascara rotates and the brush body 31 of the tooling device 30 is also rotated, the mascara is easily applied onto the eyelashes. The tooling device 30 can be unloaded for easy carrying.

In application, the speed of rotating of the brush body 31 can be adjusted by the switch 14.

Referring to FIG. 4, the direction of rotation of the brush body can be changed to adapt to the externally curved eyelashes.

Due to the fact that the tooling device 30 is engaged with the body by an engaging structure, the assembly and disassembly operation is simple and convenient. This will facilitate replacement of the tooling device 30.

It will be understood that each of the elements described above, or two or more together may also find a useful application in other types of methods differing from the type described above.

While certain novel features of this invention have been shown and described and are pointed out in the annexed claim, it is not intended to be limited to the details above, since it will be understood that various omissions, modifications, substitutions and changes in the forms and details of the device illustrated and in its operation can be made by those skilled in the art without departing in any way from the spirit of the present invention.
