Sephora’s updated app includes interactive beauty tutorials

There are a million and one beauty apps out there. But even we have to admit that this new feature from the Sephora app is pretty cool. 

Unlike a lot of apps, which will have a video demo of the makeup artist applying a given technique to their own face, the virtual artist (found under the “inspire me” tab) actually uses the camera on your phone to draw out the instructions on your face in real time – so there’s no guessing. Step-by-step, it walks you through prep, application and finishing touches – and then (of course) offers a listing of suggested products for achieving the look.

While the app – like many other beauty apps – has offered virtual try-ons of lipstick and lashes for quite some time, these more complicated tutorials tackle actual application skills, like winged eyeliner and a smoky eye.
