5 beauty apps you need to download

Seeing as we all practically live on our cellphones – we found five essential apps to fulfill your beauty needs. Downloads on the ready ladies!

LÓreal Make Up Genius

This app is a complete game changer. Once you’ve downloaded it (for free might we add), all you need to do next is upload a picture of yourself to this virtual make-up tester. Try out countless numbers of looks and shades with just a few clicks, create your own look or try a ready-to-wear option. What we love is that it gives you a list of products that work specifically for your skin tone and skin type too. You can then purchase L’Oreal products curated for the look if you like, or just continue playing around and experimenting with the different looks and make-up shades available at your fingertips.


All it takes is one make-up free selfie and a whole new world of beauty advice is at your disposal. The photo goes through a thorough analysis, down to evaluating your fine lines and dark spots, to give you customized beauty advice. And with the beauty advice from editorial stories you get to see options of skincare, hair and make-up products that are recommended specifically for you. If that’s not enough, it also gives you an option to watch tutorials that are narrowed down based on your face shape. The app also gives you a list of celebrities, with similar facial features to yours, to draw beauty inspiration from.


The app tops our list as a must have! Celebs and bloggers are obsessed with it and for very good reason. It’s like photoshop on your phone! It includes awesome features which allow you upload a picture and smooth skin, remove any blemishes or dark circles, whiten teeth, contour – the list just gets better! Let’s be real, even our best selfies need a bit of help.

Modiface Nail Salon

Do you ever go into the nail salon and just stare at the wall of nail polishes and think – “Which one should I pick, which one will look good? Can I try them all?”. This is where this app comes in. If you’re indecisive when it comes to picking a polish then just download the free app to give yourself a virtual manicure and try over 100 of shades to find one that’s perfect for you. It allows you to map out your hand, take a picture and then size up the nail shape so you get the most accurate virtual mani you can.  Next fiddle about to find a shade that you love and keep it to that or you can even play around with the different nail art options they have. Just amazing!


As a beauty addict, we have to admit this one’s our favourite. You get to discover latest beauty looks, trends and tutorials – whether it’s hair, nails or makeup, and if you’d like you can get involved by posting your own. You can even shop right from their boutique which hosts some hard to find brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills, Becca and Charlotte Tilbury. The free app also gives you access to product reviews so you can make an informed decision before your next beauty buy.
