Makeover program where you can try on hair styles, hair colors, and makeup

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Saturday, November 03, 2007 2:00 AM (Eastern)

makeover program demo

Third from left: holy smokes, Monica Lewinsky, is that you? lol

I got this link from another board, and it's actually a good program. You have to register, and it's a pain to do so (free, but a lot of screens), then you need to figure out how to use the durn thing.

Once you've got it going though, it's a peach. The selection of hairdos and colors is limited; yet, if you're at a starting point in your life, or looking for a change, you could do a lot worse. There's a long curly 'do, a shorter Paris Hilton bob 'do, Jennifer Anniston's ' can play with these basic shapes, in blonde, brown, a darkish color (not exactly black) and a couple of odd-looking ashes. You may also don colored contacts.

The makeup is a bit trickier; in the first pic, I didn't realize you could configure each component by grabbing the handles around, say, the image of your eye, and dragging them into place. The default eye shapes were entirely "off" on me but once configured, really not bad.

Then, you can adjust the opacity of the makeup as well as that of the contact lenses, and configure the eyeliner (top and bottom, top only, bottom only, and a rather crude top-and-outer-third-of-bottom, plus the thickness of the liner).

After that of course it became academic...but let me tell ya, I actually owned the lipstick in the first pic. And it does look like that on me. Since you can adjust the opacity as well as pretty much the exact placement, it's not that far off from grabbing the makeup and putting it on.

Yeah, you're supposed to upload a pic of yourself with your hair pulled back, but I didn't have one handy (as long as you don't have bangs in your pic, I think it works well enough).
