20 Tailored Beauty Tech Tools

From Beauty Analysis Apps to Color-Matching Makeup Apps

— October 27, 2015 — Fashion
Emerging tailored beauty tech tools are revolutionizing the way users are surveying, using and communicating about today's cosmetic offerings. This is now seen in beauty analysis apps and color-matching makeup apps, both of which signify prominent consumer interest in personalized features.

The custom appeal of tailored platforms is enticing to users seeking a fully unique experience. While this preference informs current retail options in adjacent markets, it is intensified in the beauty sphere, which is dominated by individual needs that come of skin tones and color palettes.

These tools also allow for a practical try-before-you-buy approach to omni-channel sales. This is beneficial to brands that have the potential to benefit from minimized processing work that goes into return procedures.
