These days, the accessory we never leave home without is our cell phone. It’s our lifeline. With our social, family, and work life all on one device, it’s not something most of us care to live without. Luckily, beauty brands have caught on and have created amazingly convenient and useful apps for us to discover new and better beauty ways, and to simply have more fun all with the tap of a finger. If you’re someone who uses their phone for pretty much everything, it’s time for you to check out these 5 must have beauty apps.
Even if you have been wearing makeup for what seems like forever, have tried on thousands of different brands and foundations, for some reason finding the perfect shade is a never ending struggle. If this sounds like you at all, MatchCo app may be your saving grace. Simply scan your skin in a few spots and the app will send you your perfect match foundation.
Synonymous with shopping is trying things on, and not just for clothing, but for makeup and skincare products, too. Stores like Ulta and Sephora are generous in their leniency with shelf testers and free samples, but sometimes, even a drive to the crowded mall is more work than we want to sign up for. With apps like GlamScout, you can virtually “try on” makeup with one lift of a finger. Plus, if you’re flipping through your favorite fashion mag, you can snap a pic of it, upload it to GlamScout and the app will tell you of makeup products in that same shade, with a variety of prices and brands to choose from.
A free app for hair appointments? Yes, please. DreamDry makes booking simple, letting you reserve appointments with your favorite stylists, gaining points for being a frequent customer, and lets you save the stylists you’ve loved in the past, or explore new ones if you’re looking for a new look.
The Priv app brings pampering to a whole new level. If it’s a massage, yoga, hairstylist, manicurist or makeup artist you need, Priv app allows you to order one directly to your doorstep. With professionals rated and reviewed, you can pick and choose your service of choosing and have them delivered at home, the office, or treat a friend who is in need of some good TLC
When beauty goes beyond just what eyeshadow color or lip tint is best, and advanced skin care is involved, download the Spruce app. Spruce allows you to get an appointment with dermatologists through your phone.
