Beauty Tech

Makeup gets a modern spin with virtual and hi-tech innovations

Implications - Previously, makeup tech comprised computer-aided applications that could give you an idea of what a makeup look or hairstyle would look on your features. Now, beauty tech is going a step further with innovative and hi-tech devices and apps that do everything from assess your skin color to even helping you create your own cosmetics. As everything goes more hi-tech, so too will cosmetics to appeal to the tech-savvy, digital-loving beauty consumer.
