We couldn't kick off this list with anything other than our new 1-Minute Makeover Facebook app! Want to see how you'd look wearing the latest red carpet beauty trends? Upload your own photo or select a model look-a-like to try on the hottest celebrity hairstyles and makeup looks. Smoky eyes, red lips, tousled blowouts, sexy braids...mix and match your favorite trends to create the most glam Hollywood makeover! It's recently been updated with looks from the Golden Globes.
If you're a fashionista interested in a runway makeover, Marie Claire has partnered exclusively with Chanel to launch their Backstage Beauty Trends App for iPad. It features a very realistic virtual makeup tester where you can apply customized Chanel makeup palettes onto a model's face with your fingers. It's the most finger-painting fun a grown woman can experience. The app also features buy buttons, pro pointers, great how-to tips with illustrative photos, and will be regularly updated to keep the hottest new looks at your fingertips.
Celebrity makeup artist Carmindy, who also has her blog Positively Beautiful on Daily Makeover and is the makeup artist on TLC's What Not To Wear, is more of an anti-celebrity makeup artist. Now everyone can get a taste of her expertise with her iPhone app. Create a "Carmindized" personal avatar and find over 1,000 drugstore and department store products that fit your look. Plus, you'll get access to all of Carmindy's expert tips and tutorial videos that'll have you applying like a pro in no time..
Want the guidance of a trainer at the gym without paying the $100/hour fee? We're big fans of the Women's Health Workout iPhone app. No, it doesn't do the work for you, but with 130 pre-loaded workouts and access to Women's Health fitness experts, losing weight couldn't be easier. It's a great strategy for sticking to those New Year's resolutions!
OK, here's another one of our apps that we love. Just tell the Hairstyle Wizard your hair type, mood, and the event you're heading to, and it will instantly recommend the latest celebrity looks that fit your needs perfectly. You can try hairstyles out on one of the many models, or upload your photo to see exactly how different 'dos look on you. We're serious when we say it's absolutely addictive.
Ever wonder what you'd look like with a different hair color? Upload your photo to the new Clairol Studio iPhone App, then have fun trying on dozens of hair colors to see which one is just right for you. It's time to say bye bye to bathroom hair dye botches!
