BreakingModern — I must admit that I was drawn to the Perfect 365 app not so much as a makeup and hair app, but because it was created by Arc Soft, a leader in advanced imaging software development for over 20 years. I wanted to see just how much the company could offer in a free app of this type. And I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised.
Perfect 365 is a simple app that can make you look a little better or give you an entirely new look with just a few taps on the screen. It’s available for Android on Google Play, Apple iOS and Windows Phone.
Define Your Features
You start by grabbing a picture from your photos or taking one right in the app. Although not absolutely necessary, it’s good to go through a quick alignment using the app’s “KeyPoints,” which defines your features perfectly for the app.
Once you are satisfied with your picture and alignment, just press “edit” and you can choose between predefined looks like every day, chic, romantic and wild (which includes spider eyes and fairy-like eyes). Many of the looks have detailed instructions for duplicating the look.
You can also choose individual adjustments to improve your look by erasing blemishes, whitening teeth, eliminating under-eye circles and brightening skin. Then you can add anything from soft touches of makeup to outrageous cosmetic effects. The app also makes it easy to duplicate today’s hottest beauty trends.
If you’re really adventurous you can change eye color, contour your face and try on different hairstyles. There are in-app purchases for additional looks, but there are sufficient choices in the free app. The effects are very well done and look amazingly good.
I was surprised by the fact that when you applied a new hair style you could move the hair around to make it look more realistic. My only complaint is that the hair colors themselves were a bit too artificial looking.
The name “Perfect 365” comes from the daily makeover feature. Just take a picture of yourself and receive a notification at a scheduled time with an automatically selected makeover every day. You can also export images and share them with friends on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites.
The new mirror feature lets you apply a look and see the changes right on your screen as you take a photo or video. It also allows you to see yourself from any angle. If you want more functionality, there are versions for the PC and Mac available for $49.99. This makes you even more appreciative of what Arc Soft is giving away free in their apps.
Whether you just want to spruce up a selfie or find a new look for yourself or a friend, this app will do it for you. And ultimately you’ll have a lot of fun while doing it.
