4 Must-Have Beauty Apps In Your Smartphone & Tablet

Beauty help under your finger tips.

We’re living in a digital age, so it’s only fair that we take our lady routines to the next level. Here, four of our current, must-have, free beauty apps that you should try.

Beautylish – Beauty Tips, Makeup Tutorials and Hairstyles by Beautylish, Inc.

Part store, part community, this app is perfect if you’re looking to give and receive beauty advice. Many of us spend countless hours on YouTube clicking past one tutorial video after another; with this app, all those videos are already handpicked for you. Not only that, it also contains articles on beauty. However, our favourite Beautylish function is that we get to talk to all sorts of people regarding our beauty problems and they get to do the same. It’s like living in your own little makeup bubble filled with women who have the same interests and dilemmas like you.

Available on the iTunes app store and android Google Play.

Makeup Genius by L’Oreal USA

While we’re all tempted to try different shades of our fave products on our skin, we agree it’s too much of a hassle. Coming to our rescue is Makeup Genius, which uses a facial-mapping algorithm technology that allows you to see exactly how different products look on your skin. All you have to do is upload your picture, let it scan your appearance and voilà! You can now see the end result after applying any product or shade with just a touch of a button and without even moving an inch!

Available on the iTunes app store and android Google Play.

Matrix Color Lounge by L’Oreal USA

A collab between L’Oréal USA subsidiary Matrix and augmented-reality company ModiFace, this app is a godsend for women with commitment issues – about their hair of course! Not only is it very easy to use, the app also contains a range of colour options and techniques (ombre, highlights, etc) for you to choose from. Basically, it gives you a realistic look at how a certain colour will look on you without needing to sit through that two-hour dye session at the salon. Blonde today, purple tomorrow, because it’s as simple as ABC!

Available on the iTunes app store and android Google Play.

Think Dirty – Cosmetic Ingredients Ratings, Barcode Scanning, Natural and Organic Beauty Products Recommendations By Think Dirty Inc.

With the amount of newly-developed beauty products being marketed on a daily basis, we can never be sure just what the ingredient list on a bottle means. Think Dirty is a Canadian-developed app that aims to help you make more informed decisions about the products you want to purchase. After downloading this fuss-free app, just scan the product bar code and you’ll be presented with a ‘dirty meter’ that clearly indicates whether or not the product is toxic for your body.

Available only on the iTunes app store.
