Makeup Genius: Virtual Makeup Tester

By  | 

Shopping for makeup products and trying new ones can be time consuming. You could always buy your favorite products online, but doing it before testing what your buying is not a great idea. Makeup Genius is an awesome application that enables you to test makeup products on your iPhone fast. It turns your smartphone into a mirror, allowing you to try different makeup combinations to get the right look for any day.


This augmented reality app is designed to help you try new looks and products in real time. Makeup genius captures 64 facial data points and 100 different facial expressions. It can discern between the skin of the lips, eyes, and other facial features. That means when you move your head, your augmented reality mirror moves with you. The app works in various lighting conditions and takes into account all ethnicities.
