Glitter Texture for Virtual Lipstick Try On

The makeup try-on app development has many pitfalls from the technology standpoint. One of them is the ability to transfer realistic colors and showcase a variety of makeup textures to give consumers a comprehensive try on experience on mobile. To address this demand, we continue to extend our Makeup SDK and API with new features and possibilities.
The new Glitter Texture features a combination of small particles with a sparkling effect. The technology builds on the lips segmentation neural network, which segments the lips area and an algorithm, which adds granularity and shine effect to the lipstick texture.
iOS, MacOS: photo, real-time
Android: photo, real-time (coming soon)
You can integrate a virtual lipstick try on feature into iOS and Android apps to allow consumers to test real products in AR or empower your beauty and photo editors with more cool makeup looks— metallic, matte, gloss and now, glitter too.
Unity Face TouchUp

To improve the user look on the camera, we extended our Unity face tracking and filtering technology with real-time beautification. The new Beauty Scene for Unity allows you to test and preview the possibilities of face retouch and understand which code triggers a specific functionality.
Another new feature which is now available in our SDK is a virtual Ruler. It estimates a distance between a user face and camera in real-time. The technology uses face tracking and computer vision algorithms which tracks the face area size to measure distance.
Healthcare. Notify the user if he or she is too close to the screen to prevent a negative effect on eyesight.
Photo and video apps. Advise on the correct ratio of the face area in a photo.
Engagement analytics. Developers can gain additional information about user interaction with the app or camera to improve the user experience.
