Makeup Social App

Hello Lovelies !

I hope you've all been well. Massive apologies for not uploading a video last week, if you saw on any of my social media, I had an incredibly bad reaction on my face, which meant I couldn't put anything on my face except smothering it in paw paw cream haha. So, I am back this week with something a little different and it's a review on the Make-up Social app.

The people from Makeup Social app were kind enough to send me some screenshots of the app in action

The way the app is described, is if Instagram and Make-up Alley (Online Make-up Reviews and Forums) had a baby, then Make-up Social would be it ! It features anything from product reviews, to forums and make-up advice, this app has just about everything. You can interact with others around the globe and share your tips, tricks and thoughts on all things beauty related. 

The app allows you to create your own virtual makeup collection of products that you have, as well as being able to make a wishlist of makeup products you are wanting. On the makeup social news feed, you can filter what kind of posts you want to see ie: just makeup, or skincare, or hair etc. Also, underneath each individual post it gives you a percentage to how similar that persons "Beauty Profile" is to yours. So someone that has the same skin type, skin colour, eye colour, etc to you, is going to have a much higher percentage than someone who has completely different features. This allows you to make a more educated decision when deciding whether a product you are wanting to purchase may work for you or not.  

Similar to Instagram you are also able to post photos, such as, products you're currently using or loving, as well as the make-up look you're wearing. The awesome thing about this app is that it also allows you to tag the products you're using in the photo, so if you're using a certain lip colour, you can tag your lips and select the brand and shade you're wearing, for others to be able to see and check out.

There all also thousands of product reviews, which include an overall rating, as well as pros and cons and any additional comments a user wants to make about the product. As you can see in the image above, there are also 2 buttons which allow you to save it to your make-up collection or wishlist, or if you were wanting to purchase it, you can click the "Buy Now" button and it will take you to a site that you can purchase it from.

I just wanted to quickly mention I am in no way being sponsored to talk to you all about this app, I just think it's such a great idea for any of you who have an interest in all things beauty related and were after somewhere to interact with others from around the globe, who have the same interests.

Make-up Social is currently only available on the Apple app store, but will be available very soon on the Android Market as well.

If you do decide to download it, my username is veroniieecar, come give me a follow and lets be friends ! :)

I hope you all enjoyed this weeks post and I will see you on Thursday, with a new video !
