Even with our imperfections, we are all beautiful, and we know it. That said, in the age of Instagram and Snapchat, some of us need a little helping hand perfecting our selfies. Fortunately, you don’t have to go to the country of post-processing. Just install a beauty camera app on your iPhone and your work will be done in a jiffy. Yeah, that’s right!
If you are looking for smart beauty camera apps then you have come to the right place. We’ve scoured the App Store to help you find the best camera app.
Let’s take a look.
1. Perfect YouCam
Are you in the mood to experiment? If so, you should try YouCam Perfect. This adds a whole new aspect to your photos, all thanks to its Frame function. From small flowers to trendy little cartoon style borders, you can find many beautiful borders here.
Going back to the main discussion, YouCam Perfect allows you to change skin tone and make your eyes bigger. Other than that, you can play around with the face shapes or the skin smoothing feature. The best thing is that you can save a particular set of settings as a preset that you can use later.
However, it ends there. Beyond the above modes, there’s not much you can do. On the bright side, there are some cool effects you can use in your photos. However, note that not all frames are free, you will need to upgrade to the Premium version to access all the features.
If you like experimenting with different makeup tools, you can also try the YouCam makeup.
2. Sweet selfie
Sweet Selfie brings a brilliant mix of makeup tools and beauty tools. The interface is simple, clean and clutter-free. One feature that I particularly liked is the Reset button. If you’re not happy with a specific look, you can start from scratch by just tapping on it.
However, the feature I liked the most was that makeup tools and beauty tools work separately, unlike many apps. For example, if you just want your lips to be colored and your natural skin color to be visible (minus all the blush and eye shadow drama), this app lets you do that.
Using this app is simple. Just choose one of the features, adjust the intensity and you’re good to go!
3. 360 camera
Then we have the good ol ‘Camera 360. I love this app both for its many different looks and its collection of cool and trendy facial filters and effects, which makes it all-rounder.
As you might have guessed, the app lets you choose from over half a dozen different looks. You can select the level of dermabrasion (skin smoothing).
Once you have chosen the look, tap the icon to change your facial features like dark circles, make eyes bigger, etc.
There is a handy before and after in the corner that lets you see the difference. You can switch between different levels like skin, face and beautification via the ribbon at the bottom.
After making all the settings, all you need to do is tap anywhere on the skin and press the shutter button. And presto, smile!
4. Beauty and filter camera B612
B612 Beauty & Filter Camera app takes the top when it comes to virtual beauty effects and makeup tools. And thanks to the many customization features, the app takes the meaning of a beauty camera to a different level.
The changes are precise and straightforward. If you play well, you can achieve the look you want in no time.
Using this app is super easy. Just tap the Beauty icon next to the Shutter icon and all the different features will be lined up for you to use. Just tap on one of them and you can play around with the other colors.
What I liked about B612 is that you can adjust the intensity levels for almost anything – from the color of your lips and eyes to the color of blush.
And it does not stop there. Tap Details and a whole new world of personalization opens up before you. From things like the thickness of your forehead to the clarity of your eyes, you can do a lot with this app.
5. Beauty Plus
Finally, we have the Beauty Plus app. This one comes with the usual makeup and enhancement tools like lip color, eye shadow and more.
You can even try different hair colors! In my opinion, the default skin smoothing is a bit overkill which ends up making it look plastic.
Beauty Plus has a few ads in between that can spoil the experience a bit. On the plus side, there is a tool called HD Retouch which amplifies the image. There are also other image editing tools that you can explore if you choose to install this app.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder?
It is true that beauty cameras help raise the level of a selfie many times over. All you have to do is find the perfect spot where the image doesn’t look overdone, and you’ll have a great shot in no time.
For now, I am seduced by the B612 application. The toolset is great, the interface is great, and there are no ads. What more do I want! And you?
