Magic mirror helps you to be your beauteous best

London, March 29 (IANS) It’s the end of your beauty woes — a virtual make-up mirror can give you a full make-over in seconds, lets you test hundreds of different products in minutes and does away with the need for make-up remover afterwards.

Created by Japanese beauty brand Shiseido, the first of its kind simulator in Europe allows users to virtually apply make-up to eyes, lips and cheeks, the Daily Mail reports.

A camera on the device captures your face and works out where your eyes, nose and mouth are. Using the touch-sensitive screen, you can choose from more than 50 different eye colours, around the same number of lip colours, and 12 blushers, bronzers and cheek tints.

You can whizz through a huge array of shades in a matter of moments, see how products change with more intensive application, and experiment with far more drastic looks than you might normally dare to.

The image you see is a perfect mirror image. If you squint to take a closer look at the eyeshadow you just ‘applied’, you’ll see it on the screen; turn your head slightly to see how that blusher looks and your mirror image will do likewise.

Once you find a look you like, you can take a still image. The machine can store a few of these, giving you an opportunity to compare different looks.
