With a soft launch underway, this new MAC Technique app (which is now available to download from either Google Play or iTunes) has been created to work in tandem with the new M.A.C Technique workshops, a broad range of workshops and seminars with currently thirteen different focuses on offer.
Australia is the test market for this new initiative, making Aussies the first in the world to be able to download (and play!) with this exciting new app. So get into an app store and be an initiator.
Quite frequently, our designated beauty budget ends up going to MAC Cosmetics. Collaborations like MAC x Taraji, innovative new lipstick formulas, and more exciting products end up luring money out of our wallets on an all-too-consistent basis. And now, we have a whole new reason to fork over major cash to the brand: MAC is launching its very first app.
Demo versions of our video and photography plugins are all FREE to try out. The Mac demo downloads work in High Sierra (10.13.6) and above. All plugins are Adobe CC compatible, FCP 10.4 to 10.5 compatibile, Resolve 16 to 17 compatible and 64-bit native. If you are on anything older than these, email us at sales@digitalanarchy and we can send you a compatible version, if we have one available.
Developed by Digital Anarchy for desktop, Beauty Box is a video enhancement tool that enables you to effortlessly retouch skin in real-time, as well as apply digital makeup for the post-production process.

This skin augmentation plugin tool can be used alongside known video editor programs like After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Avid, and OpenFX applications
Edit, collage, and mix images right in the app. Create a scrapbook collage effect in seconds with our free automatic cutouts. Retouch photos with makeup transfer and skin smoothing presets. And make even more advanced healing edits with our premium features.
Rare Beauty's liquid highlighters retail for $22 per bottle, and are said to be buildable, long-lasting, and blendable with other makeup. The brand sells eight shades at the time of writing; I tried the four lightest.
The $24 spray is said to be multipurpose: It calms the skin, primes the face, and keeps your makeup fresh, according to Rare Beauty. My makeup didn't seem to last longer when I sprayed it on top, though I did enjoy the mist's earthy scent. I also preferred using it on no-makeup days when I wanted to cool down.
YouCam 9 Deluxe is a paid webcam software for Windows. This app comes with a collection of 200 fun add-ons for your videos, including effects, filters, particles, animojis, and distortions. And if you want even more effects and filters etc. you can download more from a free collection of thousands of webcam and photo effects in DirectorZone. You can also add AR features such as animojis and face-tracking accessories.
The app welcome offer is only for new to app customers that haven't previously downloaded our app before. However, if you have previously shopped with LOOKFANTASTIC but never download the app, you'll still be able to take advantage of our new app customer offer!
The next editor, the Photo Makeup Editor 2.05, is another version of the one we had mentioned previously. Now, even though this is supposedly the newest version, there are people who like the older version more. If only because the editing capabilities for this one are not as good. Again, this is a FREE program that is made specifically for face makeup editing.
The Baixaki Photo Makeup Editor is a free program made specifically for face makeup editing. The product is available in English as well as Spanish. However, the only way to download it is through the Spanish website.
Now, although this technically an App, people who have Windows 10 will be able to access this software through the Microsoft Store. The program is free, and offers a variety of makeup presets that will allow you to glam up with one-click.
Much like the Perfect365, the Mary Kay App is an up and comer to look out for. It offers a variety of face makeup editing tools that are the perfect bridge between attractive and slightly unnatural. I expect it to rise in the ranks given time.
Seemingly out of nowhere, video conferencing app Zoom has rendered pretty much all other forms of communicating obsolete, leaving everyone to wonder about those funny Zoom backgrounds, what's appropriate to wear on top of sweatpants so you don't sacrifice that "still in bed" feeling, and how much/why/for what reason you should wear makeup (if any) on a video call. For the latter query, Snapchat's Snap Camera beauty filters are your solution. Am I wasting my very expensive makeup and precious makeup wipes for 30 minutes to an hour of grainy screen time when no one can appreciate its true beauty up close? Absolutely f*cking not. Will I download an app that will "put on" my makeup for me instead? You're damn right I will.
While there are a few beauty-related filter options on the homepage, a quick search for "makeup" or "beauty" in the Lenses search bar will bring up several options you can test out for yourself and perhaps even cycle through for all your Zoom hangs. Because yes, you can even sync up your Snap Camera filters with things like Zoom. I don't know how we've gotten here, to this point, as a society, but I'm not mad at this part.
Using Zoom as an example, to incorporate this feature into your video chats, all you need to do is download both the Zoom app and the Snap Camera app on your computer. Have your Snap Camera set to whatever beauty filter you'd like. Then, in Zoom, change the camera associated with the app. In your Zoom settings, simply click the "Video" tab, and change the "Camera" from your current one to "Snap Camera." You can also toggle which camera you're using mid-video chat by clicking the arrow next to the "Video" tab at the bottom of the screen. In the Snap Camera app, you can also favorite your go-to filters and set up certain keyboard sequences to toggle between them mid-chat as well. 2b1af7f3a8
