Dream of looking as flawless as Joan Smalls, Gigi Hadid, or Anna Cleveland as they careen down the catwalks this New York Fashion Week? Now you can—well, at least in your selfies—with the help of the YouCam Makeup app and their latest collection of styles inspired by the trends of Fashion Week. Download the app from the Google Play or the iTunes store and virtually test out endless makeup styles that cater to all kinds of tastes. Users can apply preselected makeup looks to their selfie, and can create their very own styles, too, thanks to the app’s state of the art facial recognition technology. The best part? You can test out countless looks without going through a pack of makeup remover wipes. Here’s how it works:
- Open up the YouCam Makeup app and either click on ‘Makeup Cam’ to instantly experience a variety of real-time live makeup styles, or take a selfie.
- Adjust the placement of dots on your eyes, lips, and other features to help the facial recognition technology find the exact dimensions.
- Apply makeup in categories like eyes, mouth, face contours, hair, and complexion in any style you’d like. Keep it simple or go crazy—with Fashion Week-inspired styles and products from your favorite brands, costume makeup is even an option.
- Save it and show the world…whether you say you #wokeuplikethis is up to you.
