What Is a Virtual Makeup Line?
Most of us have used a Snapchat makeup filter or two in our lifetime. A virtual makeup line takes things a step further than traditional makeup filter options. It allows you to customize your look and achieve things that can only be curated online. By using augmented reality, virtual makeup lines have the ability to break the boundaries of classic makeup. Essentially, virtual makeup lines use makeup filters to give you show-stopping makeup looks sans all the effort. These looks are often difficult (or near impossible) to achieve in real life, which is what makes the digital alternative so groundbreaking.
Introducing Signature Faces, L’Oréal Paris’ Virtual Makeup Line
Stop feeling limited by what you can and can’t do with your makeup. Signature Faces helps take those limitations out of the equation. L’Oréal’s Signature Faces line is exactly what it sounds like: a series of downloadable filters that allow you to try on different looks. It features three themes and 10 makeup filters, each of which acts as a virtual beauty product. Below, we’re breaking down the full line.
1. Volumizing Capsules
This theme is all about jewel-inspired elegance and glamour. Whichever makeup filter you choose, you’ll be sure to make a statement. Among the offerings, you’ll find metal lips and eyeshadows, pearl eyeliner, and glitter lashes. Bring on the glitz!
2. Plump Shot
We’re embracing the motto that bigger is better. Add a full, volumized touch to your look by choosing from plumping eyeshadow and lip filters that offer a high-shine, glossy finish.
3. Fire Match
Virtual makeup filters allow you to create looks that you wouldn’t be able to achieve otherwise. That’s what this theme is all about—breaking through the boundaries of IRL makeup and flaunting fierce, smokey eyeshadows, lips, and cheeks.
