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.

This is why I was so intrigued when I read about Companion. The concept is simple: stay connected and stay safe. Much like my pact with my friends, the app connects you with “companions” who virtually walk you home to ensure that you’ve arrived safely. Companion works by having you select a friend to be your companion when you’re about to head out somewhere. Once they accept, GPS will let them see your route as you make your way to your destination, sending an alert once you’ve arrived.
