L’Oreal Paris has just released a cool new makeup play thing - Makeup Genius. Always wanted to try different makeup styles or different makeup than you normally use? Look no further, Makeup Genius is clever, and fun.
Once Makeup Genius has scanned your face, you get to ‘try on’ makeup - eyeshadows, blush, lippy, eyeliner.... Work out what colours and styles you like. Alternatively, you can try on different makeup styles created by various makeup artists and see what makeup they used. Check out my different looks - some of them are frightening!! The other cool thing is ‘try before you buy’ - simply scan the bar code off any product and then you can see what it actually looks like on your face!
Trialling the different makeup styles by various makeup artists. Gosh these really look bad, doesn't help that I'm wearing grey, which isn't my colour - I was having an 'at home' day!
What’s really cool is that Makeup Genius does not take a static photo of you, it scans your face and when you move your head within the app, the makeup moves with you, though at one point I had my lipstick up near my nose - you’ll have to try it to see what I mean :)
Download the app for free on your mobile (iPhone and selected Android) and give it a go. It’s very easy to use.
Here’s a wee promotional video - a bit cheesy in places but at least you’ll get the idea.
