The beauty apps that are actually worth downloading

From DNA enzymes to the latest in fat blasting techniques, the collision of beauty and technology has benefitted the world in unimaginable ways.

And with recent data suggesting up to 90 per cent of Australians are now officially online, we thought it might be worth mentioning a few of our favourite beauty apps.

From hair styling to skin tracking, these free applications have you covered no matter what the beauty dilemma.

L’Oréal Professionnel Style My Hair

Fancy pastel pink hair but are too scared to commit? The Style My Hair app by L’Oréal allows you to live test a variety of hair colours so you can determine what suits best before you step foot in the salon. With ten years of technology behind it, the app can work with an array of hair lengths, textures and styles to give a realistic representation of your future ‘do.

Beauty Junkie

Need a hair stylist or MUA but don’t know where to go? Australia’s latest beauty app matches industry professionals with clients based on the desired service. Users can view the work of hairdressers, makeup artists, spray tanners, nail technicians and more before booking through the app. Images, prices and reviews for the experts involved are delivered straight to your device.

YouCam Makeup

While the YouCam Makeup app allows you to explore your favourite beauty brands and access a selection of makeup tutorials, it’s best feature is the Skin Diary. This visual face mapping tool analyses the condition of your skin over time so you can assess how well your skincare routine is working. The app saves data on spots, wrinkles, dark circles and skin texture, before revealing your current skin age.
