We've all done it. If you're a beauty junkie like me, I know you've done it a time or two..or ten in my case. So, summer is ending and fall is upon us and you're in need of a new, fresh fall lip color. You immediately find yourself searching online for the most talked about deep plum or a simple, nude that beauty bloggers just can't get enough of as of late. There are so many options out there that it can be overwhelming when it comes to buying makeup online. You're looking through all the little bubbles of color swatches thinking to yourself, "Will this even look good on me in real life?" "I can't even tell what color that is!" Before making the ultimate decision to splurge on a 45 dollar lipstick in your shopping cart, you don't hit checkout, you crosscheck your references. You sit and question yourself if you actually want this lipstick or if there is another option out there that might be better for you. Then you face the real dilemma; getting out of your comfortable bed in your VS PJ's and leaving your flat to venture out into Sephoraland just to actually try on said lipstick(s). Well, what if I told you that you could try on that lipstick without having to put your big girl pants on? Without having to put on makeup, drive to Sephora and subject yourself to trying on 20 different tester lipsticks in order to find that "one" new lipstick you've been dying to have.
It's true, now you can! GlamST is a virtual makeover site that actually lets you try on tons of popular makeup items from foundation to lipstick, eyeliner, mascara and blush. You're probably thinking, "How? And will it even look realistic?" Yes, to some extent. Obviously the best way to try on lipstick would be by going to your local makeup counter or cosmetic store. But let's be honest, that's not always ideal. Or for many ladies who don't live in an area with a Sephora or Ulta near you then GlamST can only HELP you when making those online purchases.
On to your next question I am sure, "How does it work?"
First, log in with Facebook or Google+ and create your profile. From there you will want to upload a photo of yourself with a fresh face in order to clearly see how the makeup will look on you.
If you don't want to post a picture of yourself, then you can always use one of the site models with similar skin tone and features to you. Just choose from the options of eye color, skin tone, and hair color and skin type.
Once you have done that, then you will need to adjust the dots to frame your face, as seen below.
Next, you will want to start adding makeup! There are three categories: Face, Eyes and Lips. Select products in each category and choose your favorite shade until you come up with a new look you're happy with!
The end result:
Now share with your friends on your favorite social media forum and browse other girl's looks on the GlamST site!
