Creating virtual makeovers on apps is pretty popular among women, especially since it gives the liberty of trying different styles.
Users can test out different hairstyles and makeup trends by simply taking a selfie or uploading a photo and letting the app do all the makeup and styling. This, of course, helps users see if a particular style complements them, which might just be easier than watching expert beauty vloggers with their makeup tutorials.
We take a look at some of the best apps for those wanting a virtual makeover.
Makeup Genius (by L'Oreal)
L'Oreal's Makeup Genius app is pretty different and has a pretty awesome face detection technology. You don't need to take a selfie or upload an image from the gallery to make it work. Instead, the app works like a video where you can pout, smile and do various things as the makeup stays put on you virtually.
Users can even create several looks or choose from existing ones as they make their smartphone their mirror!
"Try makeup looks and products on yourself and see them move with you in real time. This exclusive technology from major Hollywood studios has never been seen before in the world of beauty. Create your own or try ready-to-wear looks curated by makeup artist instantly. See yourself made up in just one click. Virtual makeup try-on has never been more real," says the app description.
The ModiFace makeup app is a virtual dream come true, as users can create any look or opt for a style donned by their favorite celebrities.
Creating your own look, however, means that you get the option to check out different ways to try on eyeliner, match foundation, lipsticks and eyeshadows with your skin tone.
The app is easy to use and one merely needs to get the ball rolling by clicking a picture or choosing an existing one from their photo gallery. Select the makeup products you want to try on, save the combinations to your gallery and try them on virtually!
"You can try literally thousands of cosmetics colors and shades in seconds! That's not all! You can also try on over 40 different celebrity hairstyles and add accessories like sunglasses, earrings, jewels, and much more!" notes the app's description on Play Store.
ModiFace is also able to simulate anti-aging treatments!
Hair Color Booth
If you're not very adventurous about coloring your hair tangerine but are secretly wondering what it would look like, then the Hair Color Booth app is just what you've been looking for.
The app lets you try out different hues virtually, giving a clue whether or not the style would favor you.
"Hair Color Booth makes it easy to digitally dye your hair that color you've always wanted to, from punk hair styles to blonde or brunette. Choose from a huge range of colors that can be adjusted to create almost every combination imaginable," notes the app description.
You can even share the pictures on social media!
