After an extensive look over all the app sites, I feel these have to be the best beauty apps on the market at the moment. The following apps should get any beauty fan inspired for a new look, shopping for their favourite products and make salon appointments to go get their new look.
Tastemaker Hannah Bronfman, events guru Annie Evans and entrepreneur Peter Hananel launched this last-minute beauty bookings app for NYC salons earlier this year – will be available in Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and San Francisco markets soon. Beautified features handpicked, critically acclaimed salons and spas, some of which are typically hard to book in advance, setting it apart from other appointment-finding apps.
From step-by-step video tutorials and trend recaps to product reviews from real customers, Beautylish has no shortage of helpful features to inspire you to try a fresh look or invest in a new product. When it comes to the latter, you don’t even have to leave the app: Beautylish has hundreds of cult-favorite and indie finds available for purchase through its e-store.
Everyone’s favorite beauty mega-store, Sephora, has an uber-helpful app that lets you browse and buy products, create a list of must-haves and read over 1 million product reviews. Scan barcodes while you’re in the store in order to shop sold-out items, get more info and watch exclusive videos.
Learn whether beauty products are safe to use, eco-friendly and socially responsible before you buy them with this super-practical app. Simply scan the barcode while you shop to learn how the product ranks in each category. Personalize your account so that it measures the criteria you deem important, from ‘fragrance-free’ to ‘tested on animals’.
Like Pinterest for the beauty-obsessed, Pretty In My Pocket boasts endless inspiration photos from expert bloggers and makeup artists — many of which are tagged with the products used to create the look. In addition to browsing for inspiration, users can read reviews from influencers, score coupons, and scan product barcodes for more info on a specific item.
