15 Fun Beauty Apps to Transform Your Image with Filters

Once there was a time when as a magazine editor, we would send images to our pre-press department to retouch and correct the colour balance of photographs. I used to call it the Harry Potter Department because the team were wizards when it came to turning a dull image into something that shone. Suddenly, the eyes were clearer and the picture would jump from the page.

Now, this happens in seconds by simply using the right apps – and you can be your own wizard when it comes to changing pictures, enhancing them and having fun using a variety of filters.

To take some of the hard work out of this, we’ve curated 15 image-changing apps so you can do wondrous things like add makeup, perfect your makeup up and even change your shape. Not that I personally subscribe to that one unless of course it is done in the name of harmless fun.
