L’Oréal Paris | MakeUp Genius App
Available from Apple App Store and Google Play Store
Ladies, I am so excited to let you know that my prayers have been answered! L’Oréal Paris have created an ingenious makeup app called MakeUp Genius which virtually lets you trial new products and makeup looks! Knowing what makeup or look works on my face can sometimes be really difficult. With so many different products, colours and ranges, it is so easy to get lost in the world of makeup and get a little disillusioned with what to do with my face. This is why I’ve always wished for a way to test makeup products on my face before having to make my way to the check out counter. So the MakeUp Genius App is just what I’ve been waiting for!
I recently put the MakeUp Genius App to the test just before a summer ball I was attending. I had picked out this beautiful backless dress for the occasion, but I had no idea what makeup look to go for. To make my dilemma worse, time was not on my side so I couldn’t rely on my makeup artist friends or pop into a cosmetic shop and try some looks out. The MakeUp Genius App was such a lifesaver as it enabled me to get the much needed makeup tips and try on some looks virtually to see how they worked with my outfit.
With an incredible facial recognition technology built in the app, the MakeUp Genius App let me mix, blend and clash all of L’Oréal Paris’s products on my face. I was seriously blown away by how smart the app was where it followed my every facial expression as I smiled, puckered and tried to see how the products looked from every angle. The MakeUp Genius App also has an infinite range of ready-to-wear looks to test out which made choosing the right look for the occasion such a fun experience. In the end, I decided to go with the Elegant Couture look to match my summer ball dress. With some really helpful how to tutorials built in the app as well, applying the look was super easy and I couldn’t have been more happy with the results.
The L’Oréal Paris MakeUp Genius App is a truly phenomenal technology and a must have smartphone application!
