    "It is so nice of Loreal Paris to pioneer in creating an app that really revolutionized the real and virtual makeup industry. Loreal has really stepped up its game when it comes to reaching its audience. I consider myself a Loreal girl and I love that I don't need to buy makeup right away to test them out. Because this app does that job for me. The face mapping up allows me to try on their makeup and move and the makeup moves amazingly with my face. Eyeliner testing is my fave app!"

    "It has some optional upgrades and I am planning to avail one soon. If you wanna try out different eyeshadow palettes without actually buying one this is a good app for you. The best thing about this app is that the product makeups are from the luxurious brands like Elizabeth Arden, Lancome, etc. Accessories are also part of this app so feel free to try on."

    "I am almost tempted to purchase upgrades because of the ads it has Lol. I wanna cut my hair short but I am too scared that I might not be able to pull it off, luckily, they have the pixie cut of Miley Cyrus and I tried it on and hey, it fits me. I like it brunette tho. :D"

WHAT’S THE MEANING

Augmented Reality or AR enhances the existing environment by overlaying digital components over the image captured by a device. Developers create the components within AR apps in order for them to blend in with real life. The users are able to interact with the virtual contents in real time because of the computer-generated enhancements of Augmented Reality. It requires less processing power and is easily accessible through mobile apps.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that an example of AR is virtual makeover apps? Some makeup brands have launched their own free virtual makeover app wherein all their products on the physical store have their own respective digital components. In just a tap on the phone, the users can apply any digital products on their photo to see how they look in it. They can try all the products so they can decide whether to buy or not. This marketing technique is actually good for their industry but can be bad for your ego. Why? because some depend on it to validate beauty. While it's never wrong to use such apps, you shouldn't let the almost perfect you in the digitally-enhanced photo lower your self-esteem because you don't look that way in person. Hence, it's important to prioritize skincare routine more than anything. For sure you wouldn't want to receive disappointed looks from your social media friends if your actual self is far from that most-liked photo. There are natural skincare products that work wonders for the skin. Having a good skin will actually make you feel good for yourself as well. If you're struggling to find the right one for you, there are skincare apps that could help you. Remember that self-care is self-love, girl. You should feel beautiful in your own way. Cosmetics, makeover apps, image filters are just a bonus.

    "I have seen that facetune has an upgraded version and it is called Facetune 2. I am trying it out tonight when i post a photo on my Instagram account. And the best thing about Facetune 2 is that it is free. However, I wanna recognize that facetune might have some features that favetune 2 doesnt have because it is paid."
