Top three beauty apps

By Isabela JacobsenStaff Writer

Do you have some time to kill? Well, I have some awesome beauty apps for you. These are all apps I recently started using and they are surprisingly very helpful! Put down the candy crush and take a look at these awesome beauty related apps for your smartphone.

1.Beautylish is an app every fashion and makeup lover should own! When you first download it, it asks you for some information such as eye and hair color, skin complexion and what type of skin you have (oily, dry, combination, or normal). All this information helps them help you! On this app you can shop, look at pictures, talk amongst other beauty lovers, and my favorite part is that you can look at reviews. There are all these different reviews on products you’re thinking about buying. It’s incredibly helpful!

2.Pose is an app that gives you inspiration! It also starts out with few questions, but more like a quiz. It asks you questions to try and find out your style. Then, they give you specific styles of fashion you’re looking for. This is a great idea if you are looking for specifically fashion ideas.

3.Pinterest of course is amazing. If you haven’t signed up for it yet, you are missing out. I even made my mom one! It’s for anyone with any interest, but if you want to talk about the beauty related pins, I’m your girl! You basically choose pictures to make up your ‘boards,’ which are like picture files of a specific theme. So, if you are looking for Halloween makeup ideas, you can keep them all in one board, go back to them and take in all the ideas on your board. You will find yourself on this app instead of doing your homework. You are warned.

Bonus: There is an app that I’m dying to try! It’s called Cloth. You take pictures of your clothes and it saves it, like an online closet. When you wake up in the morning, instead of going to your closet to pick out an outfit, you can just log onto your app and match up items to make an outfit! Think of Cher in the beginning of Clueless. I know every girl’s dream! I haven’t tried it, but give it try if you can. It seems awesome!

I’m sorry if you’re now going to be super distracted during midterm week. These apps are so fun and the best news is: they are all free! Enjoy beauty lovers.
