The L’Oréal Paris brand is committed to bringing beauty to all women through the development of cutting-edge technologies, cross-industry partnerships that complement scientific expertise and new experiences that add value to the consumer experience and industry. Their ambition for Makeup Genius was to create a game-changing digital experience that was on par with the same best-in-class standards as its product portfolio.
More Than Just Virtual… It’s Augmented Reality!
Forget any virtual makeup apps that you’ve seen before… and meet the first of its kind cosmetics mirror that allows you to play with new looks in real time. The newest technology from L’Oréal Paris is never before seen in beauty and, up until this point, had only been used in Hollywood and in the gaming industry.

Via the Makeup Genius App innovation, users can test all L’Oréal Paris products and try on makeup looks curated by a team of top makeup designers. Prior to the use of this technology, all existing beauty apps on the market could merely render colors onto a pre-uploaded static image.
L’Oréal Paris uses advanced facial mapping technology to transform your iPhone or iPad’s front-facing camera into a virtual mirror where you can try on L’Oréal Paris products and new beauty looks in real time. Facial expressions are detected and reproduced, allowing for a result that looks like you actually applied makeup.
Not Wearing Any Makeup? You ARE Wearing Makeup!
So what’s the secret? Makeup Genius incorporates a highly advanced facial mapping algorithm, making Makeup Genius a true first of its kind virtual cosmetics mirror that allows you to play with new looks in real time. The technology behind Makeup Genius has been used in over 50 AAA title games, films and videos. It is so reliable that it was a key contributor to winning an Academy Award for Visual Effects in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Similar to developing a 3D movie, special technology had to be used to ensure realistic effects. After over 7 years of research, RT Track 64 facial tracking algorism technology was patented, delivering the most precise facial recognition through a live mirror camera.
Makeup Genius captures 64 facial data points and up to 100 expressions, making it intuitive enough to discern between the skin of the lips, eyes and other facial contours, allowing the virtual makeup to move with you as you turn your head, change your facial expression and test out new looks at various angles and in shifting lighting conditions.
