We all have those days where we look in the mirror and feel a sudden urge to change everything. We want a different hairstyle, a new colour for our nail polish, different lipstick, sometimes even different hair colour.
You could consult with a hairdresser on their thoughts or go to your local salon bar, but first it’s worth doing your research and to help you here’s our guide to seven free apps that you can use to give your makeover a test drive.
The smart selfie camera that detects your face to give you the most accurate, real-life looking makeup application in both real-time and on photos.
3# L’Oréal Paris Makeup Genius – Android
Using augmented reality technology, L’Oréal Paris’s Makeup Genius allows you to try your makeup on virtually. You can choose from a range of preset combinations or make your own with the different shades of L’Oréal Paris’ products.
Hair Color by ModiFace is one of the best apps out there in terms of realism, accuracy and choice. When you want to try a different colour or add some shine, it’ll blend in naturally without all the blockiness.
