You know that time you cut your bangs and cried in the bathroom for an hour because, omg what did you just do? Yeah, been there too. We’re here to let you know that waterworks could have been avoided. How, you wonder? With the use of free virtual online makeovers.
There are platforms that exist today that allow you to try on bangs, dabble in red lipstick, and flaunt a smokey eye, risk-free, without ever paying a cent. Are you cheering yet? Because you should be.
These tools are as easy as 1-2-3. All you have to do is upload a picture for your makeover. Literally, just a selfie from your phone. (We know you have billions).
Then, you just get your face mapped, and voila, you have a ton of new looks at your fingertips.
If it seems too good to be true, it’s not, and below we’ve rounded up the top 5 free online virtual makeover websites for you to use in the future.
This is one of the most classic and easy-to-use tools on the list. To enjoy the benefits of an online makeup, you can either use the app or website to upload a photo and get started.
Once you upload your photo, you have access to hundreds of different looks. You can either use one of the many preset makeovers that they have available, or you can go your own way, and make your own look.
One of the best perks about YouCam Makeup is that you don’t have to pay to download pictures.
Next on the list is ModiFace Live. This one is a pretty fun, and very advanced virtual makeover platform. Drawing on the rise o AR, the platform allows you to apply real-time makeup effects from any image or video you may find inspiration from.
It does this simply by first scanning your own face. Once it does this, it then allows you to scan any photo or video into the app and instantly detects the makeup on it. From here, it populates the image onto your own face in real-time.
This lets you get a significantly clear idea if a look you’re eyeing online is for you, or not.
Aside from this cool feature, it also has traditional makeover palettes to try on different looks without scanning, too.
Similar to YouCam Makeup, Perfect365 is another platform that just asks you to upload a makeover photo to get started.
Once you upload the photo, you will automatically be face mapped. This means, the app will measure the distance of points on your face to make sure that when you add looks to it, it matches up seamlessly.
This automatic feature makes usage pretty streamlined, and if you’re not a fan of the mapping, you can simply reposition the dots.
After, you have access to both preset makeovers as well as ones you can create yourself.
The only downside to this website/app is that to have unlimited high res downloads, you need to pay.
Thinking of getting a new hairstyle and not sure where to start? Or, maybe you have an idea of what you want, but you’re not sure it’ll look great? Enter Hairstyle Makeover.
This virtual hair makeover tool is a replacement for the now defunct taaz.com. It offers you different hairstyles in a variety of standard hair colors.
The thing to note on this platform is that it is pretty simple compared to other apps. Oh, and like its name implies, it’s just for hair makeovers and nothing more.
Alas, we arrive at the final virtual makeover tool. While Facetune isn’t technically a makeover tool, it is a virtual skincare tool to help out your selfies.
This advanced app allows you to remove pesky pimples and unwanted blemishes from a selfie. This means that every time you upload a picture to the ‘gram or Facebook, you don’t have to worry about bad skin days anymore. This app is basically like a pop-in to your doctor’s office, letting you look your best at the touch of a button. Take that acne.
Isn’t it wonderful to know that going forward you don’t have to worry about how a haircut or makeover will look? That even if you have an event and have a pimple, you can still look your best in photos? To us, it’s pretty much a miracle. Hopefully you feel the same and get some good use out of them!
