Gloss Texture For Lips Recoloring

We've added a gloss texture to virtual lipstick try on software that now mirrors the light when the user moves with the head.

Realistic makeup representation is crucial to virtual makeovers. Beauty AR SDK makes it possible to display all lipstick shades — from matte to glossy.

You can create custom lip looks for virtual makeup white label apps or augmented reality kiosks. The technology is now been tested by one of the leading cosmetics brands and we hope to share the case study soon.


Virtual Hair Color Try-On

The Face AR 0.26.0 release brings an enhanced virtual hair color try on featuring more accurate hair segmentation and improved hair texture coloring. The hair detection neural network now recognizes hair ends and strands near the face more accurately with different lighting conditions.

Realistic hair color simulators are going popular within recent years since L'Oreal introduced this innovative feature back in 2018. The technology behind AR hair color software has done a major boost giving people more opportunities to recolor hair virtually. 

We've been working on developing the hair strands coloring which enables you to apply multiple hair color simultaneously. The feature can be useful for hair salons, beauty professionals or cosmetics brands to improve customer service and sales. Brands and developers can integrate AR hair color feature into their beauty apps allowing consumers to take videos or photos and share on social networks.
