Augmented Reality Meets Makeup

Meet the magic virtual mirror that lets you try on makeup products, without having to touch your face. MakeUp Genius (free, iOS) is a new app by L'Oréal Paris that uses facial mapping technology and the iPhone's camera to let women run wild with over 300 products, including mascaras, eye shadows, lip colors, and blush.

But the most incredible thing about Makeup Genius is its augmented reality capabilities. You can move your head around, pout, or "smize" to your heart's content — and the makeup will move with you. Preview how the makeup looks from all angles, with all expressions, and in all lighting conditions before you buy.

Imagine if all our mirrors had this tech built in! If this isn't a manifestation of the future, we don't know what is.
