I am super excited to share that I was contacted by one of the most innovative makeup website to work on a project with them. I was among the first few bloggers to be selected to test the website prior to their launch in the US and share my experience with my audience. This tool is like a dream come true for me because I have suffered for years from the problem of continuously going and buying the same exact shades of lipstick and eyeshadows over and over again. Or just buying the cutest shade of makeup only to come home and find out it doesn’t look cute on me at all. The packaging has been ripped open by then and I have already put it against my skin. There is no way I am returning that stuff. Then ofcourse their is the mystery of how would something that my friend or coworker is wearing, would look on me? You can’t go around testing products in the store or asking your friends to share them with you. No thank you that just sounds a bit gross too. Sharing makeup leads to alot of different infections. It is also useful if you are someone who never wears makeup, now is your chance to see what it will look like on you without having to buy all the products right away! So how does GlamSt resolve this issue?
GlamSt lets you upload a picture of yourself and I would suggest taking a good quality facial shot with no makeup on for best results. And choose from famous brands of makeup that we all know about, to apply to your picture. Okay I know how it sounds. I thought it would look tacky too just like those old hair style applications that were popping up on the internet in early 2000s but the IT person in me was completely taken aback by how real the makeup I was applying to the picture, looked. I even realized that my thought about not ever buying lipstick with a more orange tinge in it was a bad idea, they actually look great on my complexion. You can even see the details of the eyeliners and the mascara. And when you think that is it you can even apply different shades of concealers, blushes, face powders and foundations to your face. All and in All you get to play with makeup from top brands like clinique , Dior, Bobbie brown, NARS just to name a few. The options are endless and the results are very real life like. You even have the option to buy the products directly from GlamSt.
GlamSt means alot to me not only because it is something that I find very useful and had been struggling with my entire life with but also because it was started by two women Engineers. Yes us techie girls love fashion and makeup too and its good to see other ladies using their skills to apply it to the makeup and fashion world. I would like to also let you all know that I have not been paid by GlamSt in any way, shape or form. These opinions are all mine and true.
