Power of AR (Augmented Reality) in Makeup Industry
The ModiFace Technology will enable virtual try-on on Nykaa's website and mobile app helping shoppers purchase their desired beauty products across categories, starting with the L'Oreal range of products. With the acquisition of ModiFace in 2018, L'Oreal has been at the forefront in offering virtual try-on for beauty.
The uniqueness of the ModiFace technology lies in its photo-realistic results and Al-enabled shade calibration. The Augmented Reality (AR) simulation of each shade is done automatically - based on an Al-powered analysis of information provided by makeup brands along with visuals and descriptions of the products on social media. ModiFace ensures safety and hygiene in the post-pandemic world. Its virtual try-on technology uses an advanced face tracker algorithm that detects lips, eyes, cheeks, and hair and applies virtual cosmetics, to give a real-time, true-to-life view of the products.
