Finding that perfect shade of red lipstick can be tricky.  But rather than trying a dozen at your local cosmetics store, make the ‘smart’ choice. The latest crop of make-up apps will help you choose between shades and brands, virtually. Your only input: your picture. And with celebs like Shraddha Kapoor making the best use of such apps, it’s only fair that you do, too.

Unlike others where you have to upload a photograph, Makeup Genius allows you work while in the camera mode. The best part? The make-up stays in place even if you move your face, thanks to facial recognition technology. Once done, you can save the final selfie and share it on social media. Available for Android.
