THE TECHNOLOGY HAS COME SO FAR IN BEAUTY...
I remember a time that really wasn't that long ago, in which we didn't even know what an "app" was- let alone that there were beauty apps out there! When devices such as our phones, tablets, computers,etc. starting allowing for interaction between our other social media programs and people with like-minded ideals [like beauty!] ... it became a completely different world. I wasn't quite ready for it at first and decided that I wasn't ready to "jump on that bandwagon", yet it didn't take that long for me to change my mind ;)
After all, I knew that I could be missing out on the great tips, tricks, and products that others had to share- in addition to all the other fantastic possibilities out there! I dabbled here and there in a couple of apps to get myself started and I was hooked! Now my smartphone for example, is chalked full of all kinds of beauty and skincare apps and I don't think I'd have it any other way!
If you haven't given any of these a try- you might just missing out! Not only are there great tips like eye makeup tutorials and organic ingredient scanners, but there are makeup look creators, and ways virtually visit your own personal skincare coach or Dermatologist! These are just a few of the fantastic examples of when the worlds of beauty and technology combine. Check out my latest beauty tech find and get the lowdown below:
MAKE-UP APP REVIEW:
EYE MAKEUP TUTORIAL BY ITsamc inc.
I love being able to find a good quality app that's not only helpful, but also FREE. This one takes both of those right from the start and shows that you don't have to pay any cash to score an excellent app! ITsamc created this app and they're an app developer into making other beauty apps as well. This one particularly stood out to me due to the great pictures taken, with true step-by-step guides on how to achieve the look.
The main focus of this app is on how-to's for eye brows, lashes, and shadow looks. What's refreshing about Eye Makeup Tutorial though, is that the are looks from a few different makeup artists and designers like: Anastasia Beverly Hills, Motives Cosmetics, and Romina! The pictures are a really good quality and do show the tools and products utilized in order to achieve the look too :)
I hope that they add more to it in the future, as it's DEF worth some of the apps that I have come across that were paid :0 I'd be willing to be a long-standing user of the app if they continue to grow their database. I've had a chance to give some of the looks a try myself, and they were a LOT easier to achieve when I had a decent pictorial guide to glance at. I'd recommend this one to ANYONE to give a try- especially at costing nothing, it's not a bad deal!
