LIFE HACK

Try a virtual makeover

Everyone wants to improve their looks now and then. Similarly, most everyone is also limited in the time, energy and resources they can put into them. Thankfully, AR can help solve all three. From seeing how you’d look in a new haircut to trying out a custom tattoo, these apps can help you find that new style in seconds.

Work on your new image with the following apps and surprise your friends.

Modelled makeup

Looks puts the most popular makeup trends in your hands. Instead of struggling to guess how you’d look based on magazine-quality photos, Looks’ AR technology lets you try before you buy.

You don’t even need to remove your makeup before taking a selfie. Just look into your phone’s camera and swipe left or right to change styles. Flip through everything from hot celebrity looks to everyday makeup ideas. The best part is you can make minor adjustments and customise each to your liking.

Think before you ink

Unlike makeup or glasses, tattoos are not something you try without knowing what you want. That’s what makes INKHUNTER such a great tool. Just frame out the area where you want to be inked, and the app inserts the design with its realistic-looking AR effects.

If you don’t like it, try another one completely pain- and regret-free. The app includes tons of artist designs and is constantly being updated. Or, load in your own design, image or text for a tattoo that’s truly personal.
