New patented technology records a live 3D scan
of any face or photo and instantly converts it into a look that can be
tried on user's live video
We are delighted to announce the launch of our new patented
which can take a 3D live recording of any photo or video in order to
detect the makeup colors and styles, both of which can be tried-on
instantly on the user's live video.
enables users to try
on any look they see in real-life, in a magazine, or even on TV.
The patented technology behind our
Live Scan capability has
been under development for nearly a decade. In order to train the style
and color recognition system behind Live Scan, we
100,000 user photos from which makeup was extracted. The results of
this analysis, which were published at the 2015 Internaional
Symposium on Multimedia,
provided unique insights that were instrumental in the
creation of the Live Scan technology.
Our goal with Live Scan was to create the ultimate search engine
for makeup exploration, and to do so in a way that was a seamless
experience for users. Live Scan constantly scans live video and as soon
as there is a face, it is immediately translated into a look that can be
tried on. It is easy, quick, and magical.
Unlike other shade detection technologies, Live Scan finds the
texture and style of the makeup in a photo and analyzes it for rendering
on the user's
own face. The detected makeup styles are
rendered on a live face chart frame-by-frame, providing an instant
feedback on the detection results to the user. Live Scan works on any
photo, with any style of makeup products including multi-colored eye
shadows and liners, textured lipstick, and complex colorings. Live Scan
is based on a patented visualization technology that can separate the
skin layer in a photo from the makeup layer, thereby finding anything
makeup product or effect that has been applied on the skin.
