Beautify yourself with an appWith thousands of apps available on the market, BeautySA brings you our top FREE apps on iTunes that are worth downloading if you’re a techno junkie and feel like having some beauty fun.

App: ModiFace Virtual Makeover

Info: This virtual makeover app allows you to upload a photo from Facebook or your albums or even choose a model and play around. Test make-up, accessories and a hairstyle you would never have tried before. You’ll soon find what works best for you and which colours you should ditch.

ModiFace Beauty Mirror

App: ModiFace Beauty Mirror

Ultimate Hairstyle Try-on

App: Ultimate Hairstyle Try-On

Info: Upload your image and try on hundreds of different celebrity hairstyles. Next time you go to the hairdresser you might find yourself very daring.


App: Dermalogica

Info: If you’re a Dermalogica fan (like me!) or simply want to know more about this skincare brand, download their free app. It allows you to browse products and keep up to date with the world of Dermalogica.


App: OPI

Info: OPI Nail Lacquer brings you a portable try-it-on nail studio. You can match your skin tone on your hands and even choose your nail length. You’ll definitely be able to find your perfect shade.

Color Me Stilla

App: Color Me Stilla by Stilla Cosmetics

Info: Now that this make-up brand is finally available in SA, why not upload your photo or use one of their models and test their products? When you make your first purchase you’ll know exactly what you want.

Nail Designer

Info: Spend endless hours painting and decorating your nails. Pretty stickers and crystals add to the fun, or simply change colours and play around and then try them on your own nails. You can select the brush you like painting with and even erase your mistakes.

    Hi Jade

    There are a variety of beauty programs (and possible apps) for computers. The best thing to do would be to Google it, and see what options come up :)
