There is now a solution for those of us who routinely spot new lipstick shades and can’t tell whether they’d make us look like a sultry babe or an unpaid extra in a goth teen’s music video. With the help of Smashbox’s new Virtual Try On Studio, you can now upload your picture into their system and try on all of the Smashbox lipstick shades you’ve been curious about.
If you’re not one for lipstick, the Smashbox Virtual Try On Studio also allows you to try on Smashbox Cosmetics eyeshadows, eyeliners, brow fillers, cheek colors, and well, pretty much anything that is Smashbox (because, duh, they probably wouldn’t promote other brands!).
All you have to do is upload a front-facing photo of yourself (preferably well lit with minimal makeup), and put it in their system.
If you’re feeling shy, you can also test their products on one of their many models.
But that kind of defeats the purpose, since the models likely won’t have your exact same coloring and bone structure (unless you’re one of the models).
Now you can try out full-faced monochrome looks, test a lipstick you’ve been eyeing, or just play around.
If you’re feeling brave, you can even attempt to recreate your high school makeup.
