From virtually trying on makeup to adding a dose of sparkle to Instagram posts, beauty apps today are here to up your beauty game. Here, we feature 2 newly launched beauty apps that are changing their industries aka beauty apps you must add to your arsenal.
What’s the next best thing to having a personal beauty concierge on speed dial? This app. Created by the founder of one of the largest aesthetic clinics in Singapore, Dr Low Chai Ling, SW1 App features facial and consultation bookings, but we won’t lie – it’s the promos that we really like.
Its clean and simple interface is easy to navigate and while it’s created primarily for SW1 members, beauty seekers like us stand to benefit too. “SW1 to me, is more than just a clinic. We seek to always improve ourselves and to engage and reward our patients with new perks such as this app. SW1 app allows us to foster deeper connections with our patients as well as reach out to beauty lovers,” says Dr Low.

STYLE MY HAIR
This app takes a lot of the guesswork out of choosing the right hair colour and style. To complement your trip to the hairstylist’s, L’Oréal Professionnel’s Style My Hair offers a digital hairstyle studio with the trendiest cut and color options. It uses leading tech provider ModiFace trialling AR technology in collaboration with L’Oréal to provide the most advanced and realistic 3D hair and face simulation.
From ‘on trend’ pastels to vibrant ‘colourful’ and ‘warm browns’, its extensive range of colours can be paired with a desired hair cut to complete the look. “It will give the most realistic idea of how your new colour will look like on you and represents a key tool for hairdressers to upgrade the diagnosis session,” says L’Oréal Professionnel hair artist, Matthew Collins.
While these apps aren’t perfect, they’re the most advanced we’ve yet to use and with forthcoming updates, there’s certainly much to look forward to.
Apps are downloadable on Apple iTunes and Android Playstore.
