This Genius App Lets You Try Makeup Before You Buy

Now THIS is cool


If you think apps that let you “try on” makeup using a selfie are cutting-edge, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Meet the Laneige Beauty Mirror app, which is by the South Korean beauty brand and, obviously, hails from the land of K-tech too.

Not only does it lets you experiment with the full range of Laneige makeup products, it also has a mirror function that captures movement and expression in real-time, so you can see what you’ll look like from all angles.

Users get to experiment with the latest K-beauty looks and try on bases, lipsticks and eye makeup in different shades. There’s even an option to adjust the level of coverage or colour intensity.

We especially love the clean interface that’s super simple to navigate, making product and shade selection fuss-free.  

Finally, after your “makeover”, you can save your new look as a picture and download the list of makeup items used to create the look for easy shopping. How smart is that!

Laneige Beauty Mirror is free to download for both iPhone and Android from the Apple App Store and Google Play respectively.
