Some days I feel like I need more beauty help than others. I’m sure most women feel like this, one day I feel confident about my makeup, hair, clothes, etc. and the next day, nothing I do is right and I feel so terrible about how I look that day! On those bad days, I need help with my beauty regiment!
There are dozens of new beauty apps to help with our “bad” beauty days, whether it is a “bad” hair day, “bad” makeup day, or anything else. I've searched “top” beauty lists online, pulled the top five beauty apps from all of them, and listed them here, just for you. Amazingly, the top five is a broad variety of app types: nail polish, spas, makeup, and hair, but if you do not find what you want here, go to iTunes for iPhone users or just look up “beauty apps” in your favorite search engine and see what pops up
When you can't make it over to Silk Touch Med Spa for some rejuvination, try these 5 apps for some pampering fun:
