Best Beauty Apps 2012

I couldn't resist posting this great article. Usually I provide a link to the post of interest but I find that a little boring and just lazy. This article is by  Melissa Milrad Goldstein and you can find it on makeup.com. I take no credit other than finding it and posting it on my blog! My favorite is the Lancome download.

Not surprisingly, the big beauty brands are leading the way with the most user-friendly makeup apps to help indulge your inner makeup artist. Tap, swipe, and type your way to a prettier you with these four favorites.


#1 Marie Claire‘s Backstage Beauty Trends


There are makeup junkies and then there are the cosmetic elitists who are only interested in this season’s looks. If you fall into the latter camp, then this app is for you. Create runway looks with a virtual supply of Chanel colors (also available for purchase). Time suck? Yes. A more productive alternative to Angry Birds? You betcha.
Free; iPad


#2 The LancĂ´me Make-up Application


Chic images, product suggestions, and tips from YouTube sensation Michelle Phan represent all the features you want in a basic beauty app. But it’s the little added things that you’ll find the most engaging. The penciled face charts that allow you to play with the season’s shades and the Diagnoscils tools that recommend the right mascara for your fringe all make this a must-have.
Free; iPad and iPhone


#3 L’Oreal True Match Beauty Matchmaker


This L’Oreal app takes the guesswork out of finding the right foundation shade. Answer nine quick questions and up pops your color recommendation. And better yet, all you need to do is head to the drugstore to get it—no salespeople or beauty counters required.
Free; iPad and iPhone


#4 MAKE UP FOR EVER Pocket Studio


What’s your style today? Trendy? Glamorous? What about your mood? Relaxed? Sultry? This app helps create the look that best exemplifies the image you’re trying to portray. But what sets it apart is its SOS Studio to help you combat makeup maladies such as hyper-pigmentation, redness, and tired eyes.
Free; iPad and iPhone
