As most women already know, it's no easy task to apply flawless, perfectly-done makeup, which is exactly why the How to Do Your Own Makeup - Free app can act as a great tool. You’ll find instructional videos and tips that turn you into a professional when it comes to makeup application.
For the Love of Makeup
I have to state right from the top that I am absolutely addicted to all things makeup related and am constantly looking for new tips, tricks, products, and advice. To find this app was like striking gold. I absolutely loved the quality of the content and the amount of content in here. Keep in mind this is the free version so if you upgrade to the full version you’ll get that much more.
From the main menu you can choose from a number of video tutorials or tap on the text tip to read about makeup tips instead. I watched a number of videos and found the quality of the video to be great: very smooth and fluid. The tips in the videos were also wonderful and very easy to follow. I appreciated that they used a variety of skin types, shades, and shapes so you could really get an idea of how to personalize it for your own needs.
Another feature was a gallery of photos that were meant to give you ideas and inspiration when it comes to different looks. These looks can be shared on Facebook and saved to your photo album.
As for the user interface, while it was simple in its design, this wasn’t a negative. I found the app incredibly easy and quick to navigate and really have nothing bad to say about it.
Where Things Went Wrong
So with all the good points were there any bad? Well unfortunately there were, and that was the constant ads popping up and scrolling across the screen. Most times I can block these types of things out but when you’re in the middle of a tutorial or looking closely at a picture it just throws off your concentration.
I think if this is an app you enjoy and find useful, it’s well worth the upgrade so you can get rid of the ads completely. The full version gives you more than 400 video makeup tutorials.
Pros and Cons
- Easy to use
- Packed full of useful tips and advice
- High-quality video tutorials
- Ads really get in the way and become annoying
- The free version doesn’t give you access to all the tutorials
Must-Have for Makeup Buffs
When it comes down to it if you have a love or passion for makeup or you’re just looking for help and advice, the How to Do Your Own Makeup app is absolutely well worth the download. I enjoyed it so much that I will definitely be investing in the full version so I can keep on following the tips found in here without the ads getting in the way.
