So, you’re looking to step outside of your comfort zone with a new lip color or hair color. The only issue is, you’re afraid to make the purchase only to absolutely hate how the color looks on you. Thankfully, there’s no need to guess! Our ‘Virtual Try On’ feature uses augmented reality technology to allow you to try on hair colors and makeup—without putting anything on the line. Below, find everything you need to know about this virtual makeover and hair color changer feature so you can start trying the latest beauty trends and beauty looks ASAP—all without leaving your computer.
You’ve likely seen the term “augmented reality” surfacing across various social media platforms, but what exactly is it? Augmented reality is a virtual reality where users can experience a computer-generated atmosphere. In the context of this article, we're talking about technology that can help you test out makeup and try on hair colors in real-time before you purchase them.
From virtual lipstick to virtual hair color, there are quite a few noteworthy products you can test using our try-on feature—but how exactly does it work? There are two ways you can try on your products of choice. First, you can upload a photo from your computer and test out different colors using that still image. Another option is to give the feature access to your computer’s camera—allowing you to have a live try-on! That’s right, you can literally try on a lipstick shade right now and see what it looks like. Even better, there is a sliding feature so you can see half of your face with a product on and half without for a live before and after. The augmented reality feature also allows you to take and save pictures; that way, you can share your new colors on social media. You can "wear" one product at a time, or give yourself a full face of makeup with just a few clicks!
The Makeup Virtual Try On feature is super user-friendly, but we do have a few tips and tricks that you may want to try to get the best and most accurate results.
The first tip to make trying on makeup products easier is to pull your hair back. Whether you throw it into a messy bun or ponytail, having your hair out of your face will keep it from getting in the way of your virtual makeover, while also allowing your focus to be completely on the makeup.
You can choose to upload a still image or to use the live webcam option. Either way, good lighting will make all the difference in your augmented reality experience. This will allow for the image to be clearer and for each color to display more accurately on your true skin tone.
If you can, skip wearing any makeup in real life. A bare face will give you the most realistic idea of how the colors will look on your skin.
Now that you know all about how to try on makeup products before you purchase them, here are a few of our favorite makeup products you can test out!
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Ultra Matte Highly Pigmented Nude Lipstick: From warm pinks to flattering nudes, this line will allow you to find your perfect nude shade. The formula is matte, hydrating, and lightweight.
L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Radiant Satin Blush with Camellia Oil: This blush comes in six beautiful shades ranging from pink to berry. The formula has a creamy texture meant for mature skin that packs a punch of healthy-looking, radiant color.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow: This eye shadow line has an array of eye-catching colors that are totally worth trying on before purchasing. Some noteworthy options include Burst into Bloom, Endless Sea, and Golden Emerald.
When it comes to trying on different permanent and semi-permanent hair colors, we have a few more tricks up our sleeve. Here’s what to do when using our Hair Color Virtual Try On feature.
Remember what we said about lighting earlier? The same applies here, as using the ‘Try it On’ feature with good lighting will give you the most accurate depiction of your hair color of choice.
Having freshly washed hair will give you a more realistic visual of what your hair color will look like.
Rocking your natural hair texture will allow you to see a more accurate representation of how the hair color you’re considering will look in real life.
We’ve scoped out a few noteworthy hair colors that you can take for a test drive using our hair color changer tool.
L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Burgundy: Burgundy is totally on-trend, so why not rock it as a hair color? This semi-permanent shade is absolutely gorgeous and will wash out within four to 10 shampoos, meaning you don’t have to commit to a bold hair color long term.
L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Dark Lilac Opal Blonde: They say blondes have more fun, but have you ever considered going lilac opal blonde? This trendy hair color is sure to turn heads, but it’s worth trying virtually before committing.
L’Oréal Paris Féria in Medium Auburn/Cherry Crush: Let’s be honest, when it comes to hair colors, most of us have wanted to give a fiery red hair color a try at one point or another. Well, now’s your chance! Give a true red hue a go with our virtual hair color changer.
