L'Oréal Paris recently launched a very smart app called MakeUp Genius. The app is literally a virtual makeup tester allows you to instantly apply makeup onto your own reflection in real-time using your phone. Once you've fired up the app, you can select that new shade of eyeshadow or lipstick and virtually try it on yourself. You can browse through a library of looks from expert makeup designers or just have fun trying on new makeup yourself. The best part about the app comes after you've 'applied' your makeup. The app will actually follow your movement and angles, no matter where you look, allowing you to see what it would look like from any perspective. Once you've locked in the look you love, you can save it and then share with your friends via your social networks. As if this wasn't enough, the Makeup Genius app takes it one step further, allowing you to scan products in-store and try them on right away! No matter where you go, a new look is at your fingertips.
