Best selfies ever – the genius app that puts makeup on your face

June 24, 2014

Perhaps one of the most addictive, useful and beauty forward apps I’ve ever tried is L’Oréal’s first virtual makeup tester, called Makeup Genius (free for iOS and Android).

This new app uses facial mapping technology so that you can try on more than 300 products such as blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipstick, and lipgloss. So if you’ve always wanted to try a red lippie, but have been too afraid to try, you can do so here. Choose your colours and look, and with a click, you’ll be able to see yourself with that result. You can save the pictures, add the products you like to a list, and even share your pics to social media.

Augmented-Reality-Meets-MakeupThe app also allows you to pose in different ways – so you can pout, smile or frown and your makeup will still be put in the right places.

Okay, I’m off  to go and try some more looks…

    It does look like fun, although no way will I be sharing the pictures of my old face! 😀
