Beauty is in the iPhone of the beholder
We all know what Heidi Klum says about fashion: one day you’re in and the next day you’re out. Well, the same is true for beauty trends, and it can be overwhelming and time consuming to keep up with the latest looks.
You can say auf wiedersehen to stressing about whether winged eyeliner and beach waves are here today or will be gone tomorrow. Look and feel like a supermodel with the help of these free apps. Saving money on apps means you can spend your money on your beauty products that'll have you looking runway ready.
Bangstyle: Magazines are so 2012. But that doesn’t mean you need to have a hairstyle as outdated as the Mayans’ end of the world prophecy. Because both customers and stylists can upload photos to showcase new ’dos, this means you can crowdsource your newest hairstyle with the inspire button. It acts like your personal Pinterest for your mane, saving your favorite hairstyles to feed your “I need new hair!” urge. Bangstyle also helps you find the nearest salon when you get the urge to trim your tresses.
Beautylish: Beautylish is a one-stop app for everything a glam girl on the go could possibly need: product reviews, video tutorials, and articles on the latest beauty trends. Need a quick makeup lesson on how to perfect a smoky eye or nude lip look? Want to find a blush that will transform you from dull to doll without making you look like Raggedy Ann? Whether you’re searching for a sassy new look or want to share your makeup maven skills, you can do it all on Beautylish.
mySkin: Aside from “drink lots of water” and “wear sunscreen every day,” the number of differing theories on how to keep a clear complexion can be frustrating. But now you have your own esthetician in your pocket with the mySkin app. Factoring in your skin type, your skin problems, lifestyle, and health history, it recommends the best finds for your face. You can also create a skin care wish list and connect with other users to discuss various skin conditions and fixes.
GoodGuide: It’s just as important to take care of your insides as it is your gorgeous outside. Scanning products with the GoodGuide app shows you whether they’re healthy, green, and organic. In addition to beauty products, GoodGuide has info on all sorts of items from food to baby products. Plus, create personalized shopping lists of the highest-scoring products.
