I just love doing Virtual Makeovers on myself and on family and friends. Virtual makeovers can really become a reality, after all it's your real face. I use two different programs to get "What can be realistically looking" to photos'. First, I take a photo of my full face and try to make sure my hair is away from my face. I also make sure that I have a clear enough photo to get the best results when making myself over.
Down below in my before picture I used my cellphone, It's recommended to use a higher quality camera that way you will not have too much shadow around your photo. A high quality photo makes the virtual makeover look more natural, but for now I'm using my cellphone photo as an example.
The next step is I make sure to get the corners of my eyes and lips so that the makeup applies correctly. Next I apply my closest foundation and concealer, then the good part comes when you add the eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara and blush. I then go into hair styles, which I picked for my second photo, I picked a long hair style because it goes great with my face shape, which is oval.
I fooled around with different hair colors until I found the perfect shade that agrees with my face and makeup. The finished look is beautiful to me and is very happy with my virtual makeover.
So using a virtual platform such as TAAZ is great to achieve looks you really want to try out
