As women, we are naturally prone to always look our best. Some of us search for beauty tips on the Web, in books and from our favorite celebrities, but imagine having a set of beauty tips right in the palm of your hands.
Beauty know-how has found a new home with a plethora of apps on your smartphone to help you with ease. We’ve compiled a list of the top five free apps that will give you that fresh look or answer some questions that you may have when it comes to your physical appearance.–Camille Augustin
Like your own personalized dermatologist in your pocket, this app allows you the option of choosing products geared towards your skin type based on assessments and recommendations stemming from your “skin conditions, lifestyle, diet and skin concerns.”
All lovers of the OPI brand can now keep track of their coveted nail polish collection and test out the various shades of colors–virtually of course. If you are unsure as to whether a certain hue would look great against your skin tone, download this app to put your concerns to rest.
If you want to make sure your favorite beauty products are free of harsh chemicals, then download this app now. It allows you to photograph the barcode of a product and check to see its impact on your health, ratings, the ingredients included and how you can stay clear of those non-eco-friendly additions. Next time you take a trip to the supermarket or hair care store, make sure you have this app handy.
Instagram isn’t the only social-networking app that allows you to strike a “Pose” and share it to the masses. With this app, geared towards sharing an OOTD, you can take a picture of your ensemble and share it with the Pose community — adding the stores or designers that sell and crafted those clothing items — just in case someone else wants to pick up on your taste.
Don’t worry about taking a trip to your favorite makeup shop or department store when you can simply get a “virtual makeover” on your phone. With iPur Beauty, you can take a head shot, upload it to the application and then test out different shades of eye shadow, lipstick, and foundation all on your phone. A link to Ulta.com is featured on the app allowing you ready access to purchase Pur Mineral’s cosmetics.
