Technology is coming to the rescue with a number of apps designed to show the user how they appear in certain makeup, without the work of applying any. Many of these apps are primitive, and simply involve taking a selfie and letting the user play with a few color filters. But more advanced 3D face tracking apps will soon let users genuinely see themselves in makeup with a few easy selections, trying out new looks within seconds (and without the bother of makeup remover). Future makeup apps, offering a real time “like looking into a mirror” experience of actually seeing your live face in motion and accentuated by virtual makeup effects, could help users quickly settle on new looks, and even help to guide users in applying real makeup.
