Reviewed: The Beauty Plus Me App For Android
Isn’t it amazing that we’re part of a generation that takes more selfies in a single day than people did in decades of photography? We’re looking at an estimated 93 million selfies per day — that’s almost a crore duckfaces daily! No wonder a plethora of photo editing apps have taken the world by storm. Everyone has a favourite app that they use in a certain way, whether it’s the brand new Prisma app or a touch of Snapseed to brighten dull photos.
I prefer the new BeautyPlus Me app for how ridiculously addictive it is. The UI is pretty easy to navigate and it comes loaded with a bunch of presets. With the use of this app, you can hide blemishes and pimples, smoothen skin, brighten eyes, whiten teeth, and even change the colour of your eyes! Talk about options. I tend to stay clear from the makeup feature on the pictures I post, as it really doesn’t work for me. (Although I do toy around with the makeup feature to get a rough idea of how certain styles would translate on me.)
The key with using the BeautyPlus Me app successfully is subtlety. It’s really easy to get carried away while making tiny tweaks that eventually lead to a selfie where you look nothing like the “real” you. I went crazy with the contour feature and thought I’d fooled everybody with my new Kim Kardashian-esque visage, but I was immediately called out. Whoops!
My tip is to use this app sparingly for tiny tweaks like skin smoothing and pimple busting. Go ahead and get rid of those dark circles too. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve abused that feature. Don’t go ahead and change a good thing though; you’re probably perfect the way you are. Don’t listen to what the haters say, ok?
