How It Works
In order to use Shade Finder You must upload a video selfie of Yourself. Your video selfie will be transmitted from your device to a central cloud-based hub, where it is broken down into frames. L’Oréal Paris will use an algorithm to analyze the video selfie to detect face landmarks to localize the region around key facial features (i.e., outline of eyes, lower part of nose, outline of lips, etc.). This information is used to center, zoom, crop, and remove unnecessary features from the image(s) (such as eyes, nose, and mouth).]
L’Oréal Paris will use an additional algorithm to analyze the frames to calculate an estimate of Your skin tone. By analyzing multiple frames from the video You uploaded, the algorithm will take an average of the values and match it to a model. This information is used to provide you with recommendations. You will then be provided with Your results and suggested product(s).
