I did an article awhile back about the 5 must have fashion apps for your phone; and now, I am going to share my picks for the 5 must have beauty apps.
As much as we have our noses buried in our phones everyday, it is a no brainer to have apps on it that will benefit and help you in some way. You can save yourself a lot of time and effort by downloading certain apps to use at your convenience instead of doing the research every single time you need an opinion, idea, or tip. So here are my Top 5 Picks for must have beauty apps and what they do. The best part? They are all FREE!
OPI Nail Studio: Free
If you are anything like me, you change your nail color weekly and have more than enough bottles of polish than you’d like to admit. While having choices is awesome, shelling out $8-$9 a bottle is not so awesome. This app allows you test out a shade of polish of your choosing. Simply change the tint of the hand to look like your skin tone and test out as many shades as you like. Then, save your favorites so you know what to look for when you go shopping.
Good Guide: Free
Not only will this app do good for you, it will also do good for the environment and society as well. Confusing ingredients in beauty products like sodium laurel are simplified and explained to you with the snap of the bar code. The app will give you instant feedback on how green the product is as well as a list of suggestions for items that are better in comparison for your health and well being.
Sephora To Go: Free
One of our favorite beauty stores is now in the palm of our hands…literally. With this useful app, you can search all products available in stores, check out what’s new and daily obsession product picks, and even purchase your products. Bonus: Every time you order from the mobile offer tab, you get 3 free samples of your choosing that come with your purchase.
If you are ever in a bind and need to find somewhere to get a massage or spa treatment, but don’t have time to research the locations and treatments offered, this app will be very useful. SpaFinder will give you a list of establishments closest to you along with user reviews. You can also search by specific price point and the treatment that you are itching for.
Makeup By ModiFace: Free
Have a little fun with this app by virtually trying on different shades of makeup from every major cosmetic brand. Just upload a picture of yourself and give yourself makeover after makeover. When you are done, you can save a list of your favorites.
