Project Augmented Beauty: A mirror and app utilizing augmented reality (AR) and facial recognition technologies to digitally map your favorite makeup artists’ looks onto your own face for a DIY, professional application at home. 

The Problem

Not everyone is good at doing makeup or can afford professional makeup application, but everyone deserves to feel and look their best.

Especially in a post-covid world where this kind of service is hard to do while practicing social distancing and mask mandates. Augmented Beauty offers the perfect solution in safe, professional makeup application. 

The Opportunity

1. Simple: Users can choose from built-in free templates or pay for premium use of higher tier makeup artists from around the world. 

2. DIY: A user simply selects the look they want and the mapping/AR technology will perfectly fit the template to their face 

3. Game-changing: Imagine becoming a professional makeup artist with the touch of a button? And  as a professional makeup artist/blogger imagine being able to turn all your iconic looks into a revenue stream? 

The time for flawless makeup application is now and it comes by way of Augmented Reality (AR) and facial recognition technology. This technology will be the perfect thing in creating a mirror that allows for makeup application templates that are mapped onto the face for DIY, professional makeup looks at home.

An app that pairs with the mirror is necessary so that the user can select what look they are going for and using augmented reality and facial recognition the mirror will perfectly display a “paint by numbers” template onto the users face.
