I discovered this application today and thought I'd share with all my fellow beauty lovers. It is called Glamzy and it is an app to create face charts for make-up. It has a pre-built library with colors from Mac Cosmetics and Makeup Forever. You can even adjust the brush size, the opacity and the density of the brush edge.
To get started, first choose your face shape. Your options will be "Rectangle", "Square", "Oval", or Circle". Next you will choose your face style, meaning light make-up, normal or overdramatic. After making those selections, your blank canvas will appear. Using your fingertip, you will apply colors from the library to create looks. Of course your looks can be saved (pro version only), e-mailed or submitted to the Glamzy Spotlight Gallery.
The colors are easy to apply, even though it is going to take some practice learning techniques. An option to change eye color is also available, which is nice, when thinking about doing face charts for models. One trick I did discover: if you tap on the apply button, it will turn to a zoom tool, so you can take a closer look and then zoom back out. I do wish they would enable an undo shake (like text does in messaging), instead of having to click back and forth, between screens for undo and/or redo. Also a smudge/blend tool, with a strength slider, would be super helpful. If you mess up, you can use the foundation color or white to erase mistakes...or blend over with a new color. All in all, I really like this app and I believe it will grow to be an industry standard tool for make-up lovers in this digital age.
