3 Great Makeover Apps You Can Try

Ever wanted to try a new look, but didn’t quite know where to start or what to do? We know we have. Many of us obsess over Pinterest boards looking for the next great beauty inspiration, but rarely ever bring them to life. Often, when trying out new makeup styles, the struggle is in learning to do new ways to do our makeup, then realizing that it doesn’t actually look too good on us anyway. We end up wasting not just time, but energy and makeup products as well.

Luckily, thanks to the booming smartphone industry, this problem may soon be a problem of the past. As the developers of Iceland Bingo have noted, there were 1 billion smartphone users worldwide in 2012, but this number is already expected to double by the end of this year. Smartphone adaptation is growing at an alarming rate, and we’re now seeing so many smartphone apps being developed. Thankfully, some of these apps are exactly what we need. If you’ve ever wanted to try a new look instantly, check out the following apps:


Save 50% Off Today Only at ELF!

ELF Cosmetics Singles Day Sale

Alright ladies, get your wallets ready ’cause it’s sale time! Today only, ELF is offering 50% off site wide…..sort of. The ad can be a little deceiving because everything isn’t half off. All of the new products and a chunk of the online exclusives are excluded from site wide promotions. Which means no discount on any of the amazing new brushes they’ve released lately. Boo!


On Wednesdays We Wear Pink!

Yves Saint Laurent 26 Rose Libertin Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick

Bored with your makeup routine? Or in the mood to buy something new but funds are tight? Shop your stash! We all have a thing or two that we buy and toss to the side for a short time in favor of something newer or an old favorite. It’s just a way of life when you’re a makeup junkie. However, it can be way too much fun digging through old goodies that still feel new. Waaaaaay too much fun!

NYC Smooch Proof Liquid Lip Stain Haul & Swatches

NYC Perpetually Mauve, On Everyone's Lips, Unforgettable Fuchsia Smooch Proof Liquid Lip Stain

I think we all can appreciate how much drugstore brands have greatly improved over the years. There’s been some really great drugstore collections lately like Milani’s Amore Matte Lip Creams and Walgreen’s Disney Villains Collection that give department store brands a run for their money. But man do these improvements come with some drawbacks! For starters, some brands are starting to get a bit pricey (*cough* NYX *cough*). However, my biggest problem is how damn easy it is to walk out with one or two (or even three!) extra products you barely knew existed because they were cute and cheap. What a curse!
