Beauty trends tend to come and go with the seasons. Your face shape and coloring also play a big part in beauty. It isn’t easy staying up on the latest trends or know what beauty products work best for your looks and style. Thanks to technology, though, being a beauty expert is much easier than it used to be. In the past, you had to go to a store, browse the beauty aisles, talk to salespeople, and read lots of magazines. Now you just need your phone or tablet and these top beauty apps:
GlamScout makes it easy for you to find beauty styles that you see in magazines or online photographs. You can take a picture or a magazine or ad that you see in the store and GlamScout will find the products used. Once found, the app can place that beauty style on your own face (well, a picture of your face) so you can see how it would look on you. You can then purchase the items directly from the app.
If you have trouble finding the perfect foundation color for your skin tone then MatchCo is the perfect app for you. Some people just don’t fit the standard color range of foundation and end up looking lighter or darker with the wrong shade of foundation. MatchCo has you take a photo of your face and then mixes different foundation shades until it has the perfect match to your skin tone. You can then purchase the mix from MatchCo. When you run out, just order some more because the mix is saved to your account.
Visada is both useful and fun for beauty lovers to try. You take a selfie and Visada will then provide you with beauty ideas based on your face shape, eye color, skin tone, and more. You can even try on different makeup using your selfie to see how you would look before spending money on the products. On top of the fun selfie feature, there are plenty of tutorials and videos to help you keep up with the latest beauty trends.
L’Oreal Makeup Genius
L’Oreal Makeup Genius is similar to Visada in that it lets you try on makeup before you buy it. The difference is that Makeup Genius uses your phone as a mirror while Visada uses a selfie. With Makeup Genius you can move your face around and the makeup moves with your face on the screen. The original version of L’Oreal Makeup Genius was amazing and the latest updates haven’t been so great. It is best to find an older version of Makeup Genius from a reputable APK site instead of downloading the newest version.
Sephora: Shop Makeup and Beauty
If love makeup then chances are high that you also love Sephora. It makes sense then that you would want and love the Sephora app. The app lets you show Sephora anywhere and is great for days when you can get to the store. The Sephora virtual assistant will help you find the best beauty look for you using a selfie so you can try out makeup before you buy. You will also receive app only deals so you can save money on your Sephora addiction.
Pretty in My Pocket
Pretty in My Pocket (PRIMP) is a social community for beauty lovers. It makes it incredibly easy to decide if you want to spend money on a product. How? All you do is scan the barcode of a product you are considering buying and you will receive tons of recommendations, reviews, tutorials, and more about that product. You can add your own reviews of products to help others decide what to buy, too. PRIMP also provides tons of information on the latest trends so you stay up to date.
This is another app that helps you find the best beauty products for your face. Plum Perfect has you take several selfies (not just one) and scans your face to determine your shape, skin tone, eye color, and more. You will then receive recommendations on the best makeup products for you. One of the best features of Plum Perfect is if you look at a product that doesn’t match your face then the app will warn you. It is then up to you whether you buy it or not, but don’t say you weren’t warned that it won’t look good! Plum Perfect also a subscription service where you pay a tiny monthly fee to watch tons of beauty tutorials.
Musely (once Trusper) is an app that helps you choose green and organic beauty products for healthy living. You will find recommendations and beauty tips on how to use these products. You can become a Muse and help others find great products and how to use them. If you care about the environment or don’t want to use makeup with weird chemicals then Musely is the beauty app for you.
This is a fun app but can also be useful for beauty lovers. It is a beauty makeover app that lets you upload a selfie and then try on different makeup, hairstyles, and more. It does a pretty good job fitting the stickers to you face so it really looks like you are wearing makeup when you aren’t. You can use YouCam Makeup to create great Instagram photos without much effort or use it try out makeup colors and hairstyles before you actually take the plunge to buy them. You’ll spend so much playing on this app because it is fun to do and not just a useful makeup app.
These are the top beauty apps for anyone that loves makeup and beauty products. All of them will help you look your best and teach you about applying makeup. Stay up to date on trends, too. Your friends will all want you to do their makeup and will beg to know where you got your style from.
